So I completed the first ever Chademo retrofit (maybe EUs first? ), and documented it in video format. Maybe we'll go for CCS retrofit next time?
What about a standalone 43kw AC charger with a type 2 cable in the boot with a chademo cable which can be plugged into the Leaf's socket? (a giant granny charger)I suspect that would be far more than a CCS and Type 2 conversion.
Yes some simple electronics to recreate the Cp and Pp signals and true, isn't cost effective for older models.You'd need something to spoof the signals that the charge point is expecting from the car along the Type 2 AC lead from it to your plug on this unit. It's a very expensive solution in comparison to the value of an early car.
