Iím super excited. I have been testing this new Charging method. Typically people charge their Gem cars with a traditional 110- 3 prong outlet. The new Kit, allows you to convert your car to a J1172 charge port. So now you can charge @ public charge station, 220v or 110 volt (with adaptor) the Charger donít care either Voltage is fine. So Iím installing a 220v electric charge station at home and ditching the 3 prong 110 outlet. When charging at 110 volts the most you can push is 12 amps.
When charging at 220v you can charge at 30
Amps.

was that the only spot to install the port? surprised you didn't try and blend it into one of the black panels...

The Stock Charge port is in that location. So I just figured I would mount it in the same location. Yes I know it’s not super pretty. But I didn’t want to have to open and hood or flap to charge. And if your at a public charge station, it’s ok for people to Un plug you and start a charge on their car if your car is full. So keeping the plug in a common Aera is good changing etiquette

Thanks: one more thing Iím loving about this new plug. Is that it made me realize how much you have to fiddle with a standard 110 plug to get it registered and plugged in correctly. If nothing else it makes plugging in just that much easier. And I love how it locks, a few times I have not had the 110 cord in all the way and or it got kicked and I came out that morning and the car was not charged this one that canít happen, and last but not least I realize I hate plugging in and out the car. So the last thing I wanna do is hunt for the plug. Only thing better would be a Apple Mac style magnetic plug that attached it self like a Mac Laptop plug!!!!
