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 5-15 style receptacle which can accommodate essentially all devices sold in the US and Canada (if your device is capable of operating at 220V – see note below). Note: This adapter has been tested with the Vespa Elettrica and is compatible with this vehicle.

Do you need more than one outlet? We can include a 3-outlet power strip with your new adapter – just select it from the options above.

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….

  2. MrPRSTO

    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 (store manager)

      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 (store manager)

      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 (store manager)

      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.

    Do you have a UK version of this, and do you ship to the UK?

    • evseadapters (store manager)

      Yes, we do ship to the UK! We offer a Type 2 charger to Schuko adapter, which is more suitable for the UK and Europe. Although it has a schuko outlet, you could connect to a UK outlet converter or cut off the connector and wire on your own UK type receptacle.

    How is the J1772 wired to communicate over CP? Is there a pull down for CP to earth ground and if so what value?

    • evseadapters (store manager)

      Yes, there is a pull-down resistor and a diode inside, in line with J1772 specification. If you want to DIY, you can do a web search for images using the term “j1772 control pilot resistor” and you’ll find the relevant schematics and parts values.

    It didn’t work for my charger. I ended up taking it apart and building a working adapter with a true signal and pilot lead. The build turned out pretty cool because I added a volt and amp meter to it. You might have better luck. Well I was disappointed that the adapter did not work out of the box, but it did push me to research and build something way cooler. So I can’t really be mad.

    great adapter, love this thing.

    Could I use this with a Bluetti 500eh/300w power bank? I couldn’t tell from website specs. Thanks!

    • evseadapters (store manager)

      I went onto Bluetti’s website and researched that product. From what I understand about it, the answer is YES. Based on the type of AC charger that Bluetti uses (it appears to be a switching power supply), our J1772 adapter should work well with all of their power banks. Still, make sure to check the specifications label on the back of their AC charger before using, to make certain that it is rated for 240V – but from my research I’m 95% sure that it is.

    How many of these ( see photos)
    could I run off this adapter at once with a power strip?

    Or better yet. What product do you recommend that would lete me run the most amount of charges at once?

    • evseadapters (store manager)

      Based on the rating of 3A on the label, you can run up to 6 chargers at once using this adapter with a power strip. Most likely though, at 220V your chargers probably won’t pull more than half the current, so in that case you could likely run as many as 12 of them at once. To be sure though, I’d recommend testing the adapter with your charger, at a charging station that displays power output. This way, you can find out exactly how much power your charger uses in reality, as the figure on the label is often much higher than its actual requirement. Our adapter is rated for up to 16 amps.

    Happy, works perfectly. We bought a 50mm hole saw which was a little small, it should be a 52mm. In hindsight we should have purchased the 6-50 or 14-50 adapter for only a few dollars more, to better support the full 30A available from the charging station. Our current charger is drawing 20A which is working fine, but we would like to upgrade it to 30A
