  1. Idea for charging at CHAdeMO and CSS/SAE stations...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I drive a 2012 volt, which gives me only 30 miles/charge. So I use plugshare and other apps to find chargers near me wherever I go to avoid using gas. Problem is, the J-1772 plug is ALWAYS the most popular! At the mall there are so many non-chargepoint chargers (like EVgo and Blink) that at best...

  6. EVSE level 2 - J1772 adaptor to charge a "pre-J1772" standard EV - help

    Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    I'm looking for some sort of adapter to charge an older conversion EV from any EVSE level 2 - J1772 Charging Station. Any ideas on where to buy or information on building (a simple solution) would be appreciated. I would need a socket to accept the EVSE J1772, the circuitry to activate the EVSE...
  7. Lowe's has a charger (well, sort of)...

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I go to Lowe's this afternoon knowing that they have EV charging. Their charger showed up on one of the EV charging search sites (I forget which one). Anyway, when I get there, I pull out the cord and immediately said to myself, "WTF"?? Is this a "paddle charger" that I've heard about? What...
  8. Not charging on 230v Voltec

    Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    I have kind of written a book here but if you have in depth knowledge of J1772 EVSE's I would appreciate any thoughts on the cause of my troubles or how to pin it down to an EV or EVSE control problem. My 2012 Volt is not charging when connected to the 230v Voltec L2 EVSE I have installed at...
  9. J1772 EVSE PLUG BROKE OFF

    Li-Ion Battery, Charging, Mgmt System - Chevy Volt
    I ran into my EVSE J1772 plug a while back and broke it right off. Took some time, but I finally figured out how they wired it, to include the LED for lighting. I've been writing about this in Mods and Hacks, but found this area and decided it needed to go here.. This is just the PLUG, not an...
  10. J1772 Wiring

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    The fix is in!!! On the Chevy Volts EVSE, DO NOT CONNECT the Proximity Pin (PP) onto pin 5. It is for lighting the diode or whatever else you want to power with 15VDC. The Control Pilot (CP) on pin 4 needs 150 ohms across it, to ground. You do NOT need the 330 Ohm resistor and switch, though it...
  11. J1772 Adapter

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    Where can I buy just the J1772 plug that plugs into the Volt? I want to make my own charge station, charge the Volt with the 220 in my garage, almost have the wiring figured out... I don't want to spend the $1000 for GE's chargeport at homedepot online. They make way too much money on this...
  12. Difficulty Charging at Public Charge Site

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I recently moved to Denver with my Volt. I recently attempted to charge my car at one of the "Juice bar" charge stations at Canopy parking (an off site parking complex). I was really excited about parking there - they must of had 15-20 charging stations there. I picked one and plugged the J1772...

    Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    Hey everyone, I'm currently writing an iPhone app for electric vehicle drivers. The app allows you to connect with nearby EV owners and provides an up-to-date listing of J1772 charging stations. As I'm sure you all know there is a scarcity of J1772 charging stations right now (tough to make a...

  15. Focus Electric 240v available DIY from Best Buy - Compatible with Volt?

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    I just took at look at the Focus Electric post at Autoblog Green, and in the post, they say the 240v charger for the car will be available from Best Buy as a stand-alone installation. This seems a lot simpler than the official rigamarole GM wants you to go through to get a home charger...
