This is what is confusing to me. He is asking about using pro adapter, not a typical CCS from a DC fast charger. The pro CCS "like" plug is using AC through the J1772 upper part of it. If my math is right (240 V x 80 amps), it is outputting 19.2kw of AC which is under the J1772 max. I would think an adapter would be possible, but it would not be for use on DC fast chargers.Unfortunately as of now, no such adapter exists. Typically a CCS style plug is delivering at a minimum of 50kw while J1772 maxes out at about 20kW. Also the J1772 Plug is AC while the CCS is DC. it could cause some serious damage if improperly used, so that's likely why nobody has made it yet.
Really unfortunate that leaf uses that goofy DC fast charge chademo thing. I think any car with CSS should work on charge station pro. And since leaf is about the only car with this issue, no one will bother making an adapter.right, he is simply looking for an adapter that would allow him to access the typical 240v charging from the EVSE - the DC pins are never going to be part of the equation, but they are there for the LIGHTNING, if/when the ProPower output is requested. Also, whether the ProPower EVSE is attached to a 100amp circuit breaker doesn't matter when it comes to how 'much' the LEAF would need to charge - the LEAF is requesting the amount of charging power it needs, not the other way around.
AMPERAGE draw is not determined by the breaker size, it is all about how much the Appliance/EVSE is asking for. When you plug a 3amp Lamp into one of your 15amp household outlets, the Lamp doesn't care that there is 'more' amperage available, or that it is a 15amp circuit, it is only going to use what it needs, or is designed for.
There are a few PHEVs that don't have the CCS DC pins. I wouldn't hold my breath for one of these adapters, either.since they are about the only car with this issue, no one will bother making an adapter.
Early CCS chargers and those at Harley Davison dealers are 25kW.Unfortunately as of now, no such adapter exists. Typically a CCS style plug is delivering at a minimum of 50kw while J1772 maxes out at about 20kW. Also the J1772 Plug is AC while the CCS is DC. it could cause some serious damage if improperly used, so that's likely why nobody has made it yet.
I think we are all in agreement it is not going to happen. If you need to charge both, get a good 3rd party J1772 and sell the charge station pro. Only folks to needs tons of juice daily, or home backup really "need" it.I just want the adapter for home use not DC charging.
That's a great idea. Can you use pro power on board while charging?You can charge your Leaf off the Lightning.
There are only a very few 80A EVSE on the market. Make sure that if you go this route to find the correct rated charging cable. It would probably be costly.The other option I have would be to replace the CCS cord with the J1772 cord
Yes. There is a youtube test out that the truck can actually charge itself off its own pro-power (a lossy experiment), just to show that it can charge another car while it it taking a charge itself.That's a great idea. Can you use pro power on board while charging?
