Haven't replaced the EVSE but did replace the plug head

Back in April, I wrote up my experience with pictures on my scorched EVSE plughead on my thread "Observations of an Early Adopter" on "Things I've noticed #13" here:

Basically, I was using a 3-way adapter for about 3 months and plugging the EVSE into that and that into an old 110v outlet in my garage. One day I plugged the J1772 into the car and the 3-way setup started hissing from some crazy arcing going on at the plughead. I unplugged the J1772 immediately. I threw away the 3-way and replaced the plughead and 110v outlet hardware in the garage. Now I run a 25 ft 12 gauge extension cord to the EVSE from this new outlet. I haven't had a problem with it since.
