I recently purchased on off-lease 2014 Volt.

From research in here and on the web, it seems it came with a Lear built EVSE.

These two YouTube videos seem to indicate it will work as L2 charger with a plug change.

(My unit appears identical to the one in the videos.)

I can't find any discussion of this in here. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks

Post a photo or two of your EVSE.

2014’s came with clipper creek built EVSE.

If you Do have a lear Unit. I would not modify the plug. Just make a conversion cord with a 220/240 plug and 110/120 receptacle.

It is identical to the one in the videos. No screw holes on rear. Including, in his second video, the tag - the date code on mine is lower, but the catalog number (23446639) is the same.

Given it is an off-lease unit, I can't definitively say it is the EVSE that came with the car (though I did come across one discussion that some 2014-2015 came with Lear units).

Hope the pics come through...

That is not the stock unit that come with the 2014. It cannot be modified.

Since you could not link the Videos, I will.

To Clarify, the 2014 Clippercreek version can be converted to 220/240 With internal modification. But, you cannot just change the plug like was done on the Lear version in the Video.

The Key factor is that the lear board neutral can also accept L2 (hot input) so a 3 wire 220 plug or adapter cable should work.

Yours may have the same part number, but its not the one shown in the video. Yours is missing the extra window of LED indicators. Without being able see inside yours, I would hesitant in assuming it has the same internal board configuration.

I agree but he should try it and be sure to tell us what happens when it gets plugged in. Just make sure you stand way back and make sure you have a fire extinguisher in hand that can handle an electrical fire.
Really anxious to see how this turns out.
