That would be really great. I would need to see the board, and specifically the power transformer that supplies the electronics on the board. The relays and MOVs should handle up to 250V since they are only touching one leg of power. Pictures are the starting point to really see if further investigation is needed. If I can't see the model number of the transformer to pull the spec sheet, it might not be safe to attempt it.I'm on the Pacifica forums trying to get a new owner to volunteer to open it up and take pics to post. Would that be enough for you?
Man, I wish the volt could handle 32A. If the Pacifica handles it, I'd lean towards getting a higher capacity EVSE over doing any sort of permanent mod to the factory one. But, if a pigtail works, it doesn't hurt to have it with you just in case. That said, there's a standing order in my household that my family can shoot me if I ever buy a minivan. I'll rent one for an occasional family trip, but buying one means certain death.Might comment there even if it supports 240 V it will still be limited to 12 Amps (so 2.9 kw or so). This will be a lot slower than using a 240 V / 32 A station that the Pacifica supports, but is far better than 120 V.
Oh cool, good to know! So your adapter will work for these as well. Do you have a link to a source for that?In a new development, FCA has indeed sourced their EVSEs for the Fiat 500e and the Pacifica PHEV from Lear. They do work on dual voltage, just like the late 2014-2015 Volt EVSEs, also from Lear.
Here's the link for the 500e, which comes with a similar Lear EVSE as the late 2014-2015 Volt.Oh cool, good to know! So your adapter will work for these as well. Do you have a link to a source for that?
And, according to this PR article, this 3rd generation Lear "Portable Charger" is classified as Level 1 or Level 2.Here's the link for the 500e, which comes with a similar Lear EVSE as the late 2014-2015 Volt.
Since the Pacifica is so new, and I'm not in a CARB state, I haven't seen on in person. However, I worked with a local 500e owner to check the stock EVSE and it's the same Lear, and works fine on 240V. I have a thermal camera I use for checking EVSE cable repairs and EVSE upgrades, and it was the same temperature on 120 and 240. Lear has been using the same guts for their EVSEs since 2013. I am interested in seeing the wider, rectangular one, though.
