I can see no benefit to retaining the Rolec - swap the plug on the Ohme for a 32A commando and replace the Rolec with a 32A commando socket. The Ohme only uses the CP signal to limit its output, but will output the full 32A if not present/connected
Interesting. The CP that you are talking about it the one from the Ohme unit to the car? So does the EVSE fed Ohme normally command the full supply from the EVSE and then seek to manage all of the regulation with the vehicle from itself?
No, the one on the input side of the Ohme. The evse tells the car how much it can draw, when the Ohme is plugged into a type 2, it must honour the limit from the source evse. The 32a commando version assumes it can pull 32a and sends this value to the car
So how does rewiring the Type 2 input into a Commando plug get around the source EVSE no longer providing a limit? Surely it would error as effectively that would be no 1kHz signal on the CP with any PWM for the Ohme/Car to restrict to?
Just dropped in via email. So the previously free charging posts, like those at Waitrose, now attract a £1.20 'admin fee' regardless of the kWh consumption or period of time used. Once again my skin crawls at the anti-EV driving stance of Polar / Chargemaster.
I don't know if it is just because I am always on the road so always charging publicly, or if I just seem to attract the wrong people. Has anyone else recently encountered an explosion of new EV owners who are acting rude and entitled? It's always been a bit of a problem over the years but never...
I'm sure this has been discussed many times and the research has already been done.
I've upgraded to a new Nissan leaf and I need to change my connector from a Type 1 to a Type 2. How is the best (and cheapest!) way of doing this.

I Thought I would be the last person to be asking for advice on how to use a rapid charger since I have used the things literally thousands of times, but in my area we are getting a lot of these new style eVolt units installed and I just can't seem to work out what I am doing wrong with them...
I'm planning to drive through France from Calais to the Alps next month, and have read that Corri-door have closed most of their fast chargers due to safety concerns.
I’ve never taken my EV further than 100 miles so planning how to tread carefully through France.
