yeh, it doesLooks like it's just just an RCD on a cable
Not sure where you'd fit the comms and contactorsIdeal starter kit for a DIY EVSE box though.
Mode 1 charging up to 16A is fully supported by the IEC standards, IET, BEAMA, etc. It's wonderful because you don't need a 'brick' EVSE in the cableAre mode 1 cables legal in the uk? live pins in the mennekes?
It's possible that the Smart supports Mode 1 because it uses the BRUSA charger which can be configured in this way.You can get it from Mercedes Milton Keynes they sell the smart EV and that's the cable they use i will know the price tonight when I head in to work
Yes they let me try it and yes it started to charge my caryeh, it does
@Eunicholas did this actually charge your ZOE or did you just plug it in to see if it fits? I'm really interested because the ZOE is rumoured to support Mode 1 charging but I've never seen that confirmed and would love to know for sure (and what charge rate it reports when using this cable).
I agree I will see if they let me plug it in for a little bit, the zoe dash bored will tell me how long it will take to charge, and I will let some one smart work the numbers lol. I just hope they still have it as it's a Customers smart car in for service it's there cableOK... It's possible that the car detected the power but didn't actually charge. My advice is to make sure you can return the cable for a full refund because it may not work or even charge at such a low rate that it's useless.
