New standardized charge plug

Written by admin. Posted in Other Details

Here is the plug head side by side with my original. This new international standard requires some signal feedback to the charge station before any power is applied to the head. It has a nice latching system with easy insertion/removal.

Rear Charge Port

The old fuel tank inlet has been re-commissioned:

BMW made it easy for me here too. This was only a half day task with the rotary table on the milling machine. It presses snugly into the rubber lined opening and is anchored from behind with a mount that is perfectly located for this purpose. Getting a bit repetitive, but Luck happened again…

Front Charge Port

Written by admin. Posted in Other Details

Fun with ABS:

This comfortable plug handle was fabricated with ABS which I built around a standard 14-50 220V socket/plug.

This is the charger input port that will be used normally while parked in the garage. With this recessed plug design, it is impossible to get your fingers anywhere near metal.
