NEW: CHAdeMO (TM) - compatible Cable & Plug for EMotorWerks DC Chargers
We at EMotorWerks are happy to announce upcoming availability of this true breakthrough in creativity and collaboration among Open Source enthusiasts - a CHAdeMO-compatible Cable and Plug!
Those in the know on CHAdeMO-compatible hardware know that the official version of the plug and cable from Japanese suppliers runs ~$2,500 per set. This is more than EMotorWerks CHAdeMO compatible charger itself!
To address this issue, we have teamed up with some brilliant fellow Open Source enthusiasts to make a 3D-printed version of the plug available for general purchase at less than 1/3rd of the 'official' cost.
Needless to say, this is a non-certified, non-approved, for your experimentation / education only product. But it works! You can see a number of videos on our YouTube channel where this device is used to charge CHAdeMO compatible cars. It has been extensively tested at power levels up to 50kW. https://www.youtube.com/user/vmiftakhov
Help support Open Source EV revolution by buying one of these along with our CHAdeMO-compatible DC Charging systems and enjoy up to 25kW DC charging on your compatible car!
This listing includes 12 feet of 100A CHAdeMO cable (AWG2 power conductors) and a 3D printed plug - all appropriately terminated.
