I think most users here have been following the various threads about charging your Roadster on a public charging station. In the US most of these stations have a single-phase SAE J1772 connector, where Europe (NL, DE, UK and BE) are using mostly the IEC 62196 (also known as "Mennekes") connector.
While the connectors differ in format, the protocol they use is EVSE, the same as the Roadster talks to the UMC or HPC (please correct me if I'm wrong!)
Rumours go that Tesla will release a Tesla<>J1772 connector end of April or in May 2011, if so, we, as European Roadster users/drivers/owners will need a IEC62196 to J1772 cable.
These cables are available for the Nissan Leaf, but most of them are limited to 16A.
I've been e-mailing around to find a suiteable cable and I've come up with a Chinese supplier which can supply a cable which is able to handle 63A single-phase with on one end a J1772 connector and the other end a IEC 62196 cable.
This image was taken EV-Box.com, as you can see, that cable is limited to 16A.
The Chinese told me that they could deliver this cable for around $250,00 a piece, without shipping.
What I'm trying to do is gather a group of people who would want this cable, so I can get them from China.
I'd like to compile a list of people who would want such a cable, so I can see what I can do with the pricing and shipping.
I'll ship the cables to my home (NL) and from there on I'll send them to you guys.
The cable specs:
Side 1: SAE J1772
Side 2: IEC 62196
Phases: 1 (J1772 is single-phase)
