With our new J1772 EV adapter, you can now charge your e-bike, electric scooter, “hover” wheel, or nearly any personal electric vehicle at all public J1772 charging stations even if you don’t have a J1772 inlet on your vehicle. You can also power nearly anything else that has a standard electrical plug as long as it can also operate at 240V. This adapter works by using a specially designed circuit inside the plug that basically tricks the charging station into thinking a vehicle is connected and ready to charge. Features a J1772 inlet and a standard NEMA 5-20 style receptacle which can accommodate devices having either NEMA 5-15 or NEMA 5-20 plugs – that’s essentially all devices sold in the US and Canada. Note: This adapter has been tested with the Vespa Elettrica and is compatible with this vehicle.

CAUTION! Make sure your EV charger or appliance is configured to operate on 220V before connecting to the charging station! Most charging stations operate at about 220V, so this is very important. Refer to the label on your device’s power supply – if it indicates it can accept 220V or above, then you can definitely safely use it with this adapter; however if not, then please DO NOT USE – misuse may damage your device.

    I have used this adapter to charge my vespa elettrica 2020 usa model that came with a standard 110v plug, I plug in into the public charging station with out any problems….

    Tested the adapter today to charge my 2020 Zero FXS and it worked great. It’s well made and I received it in about 10 days!

    Does anyone know what the true voltage output is? I’m guessing it represents one leg of the 220V that is the output of the EV charger? I’m being thrown off by the warnings regarding 220V — but how could a NEMA 5-15 possibly output 220V?

    • evseadapters

      Most EV charging stations output about 208V to 240V. This adapter supplies a NEMA 5-15 connection as a convenience feature for easy connection to chargers that come with the American standard power cord but are capable of operating at the higher input voltage (a lot of ebike chargers are made for international voltage compatibility so can handle 220V easily but for the American market they ship with the NEMA 5-15 plug). Just be careful to only use this adapter for 220V-capable appliances.

    Wow!! I received this high quality product within a week, here in San Francisco, and downloaded the plugshare app. I set my parameters(free charging, connector type, etc.) and quickly located a charge station. I charged my Sur Ron X for 30 minutes while enjoying the fresh air and sunshine, and got a 15% charge increase. I have recommended this product to everyone I know that is using electric vehicles. I can not believe that I did not think about buying this years ago. Thank you for making this. Cheers.

    Question from a prospective customer.

    Does this device deliver 15A or 20A? The plug indicates 20A since they used a NEMA 5-20R plug, but considering they are using a 120V plug for 230V, this doesn’t necessarily mean a thing.

    Incidentally, the correct plug to use in North America is either a NEMA 6-15R or a 6-20R (depending on the current capability of the adapter).

    I am thinking about buying one, but it I do I will replace the NEMA 5-20R plug with a correct 6-15R or 6-20R plug. Seems fairly dangerous to have something like this laying about.

    • evseadapters

      You’re right, this adapter can be dangerous if misused. We use a NEMA 5-20R connector for compatibility with existing devices such as ebike chargers which already come with a standard NEMA 5-15 cord but can operate at 120 or 240V (most of these have universal-voltage input). The adapter can safely output up to 20 amps. You could certainly buy the adapter and change out the connector for a NEMA 6-20 if you wish. Thank you for the feedback. BTW we do also offer this type of adapter with a NEMA 14-50 or NEMA 6-50 connector, and those versions are rated for up to 50 amps output – you can find them on the same page.

    Could I use a product like this to then connect to my EcoFlow Delta Lithium Ion Battery / Solar Controller?

    • evseadapters

      According to the specifications on EcoFlow’s website, their device accepts AC Charge Input Voltage of “100-120Vac (50Hz/60Hz) (International Version 220-240Vac ONLY)”. I’m not absolutely certain what this means, but it sounds like they make two versions with their US model accepting 120V and their international one accepting 220V. If that is so, then you would have to have their international version if you will be connecting to an EV charger with our adapter, because most EV chargers output 208-240V. I also see that their international version has a C13 inlet, so I would advise selecting our J1772 to C13 adapter instead of this one.
