    This is a REALLY BAD IDEA.

    There is a temperature sensor that's wired into the Toyota EVSE 5-15P plug, if this plug is cut off the Toyota EVSE unit won't be able to determine if there's too much heat at the plug connection.

    Don't cut the Toyota EVSE plug off !!!


    EDIT: I type SLOW.... :)

    Ah so your a fan of the 220->110v adapter solution.

    Yes, I believe in SAFETY...

    Cutting the plug off of the Toyota EVSE means removing one of Toyota's safety systems.

    Rob, good to know, but...I really don't like the idea of 240 volts in a connector that looks (is) a 120 volt device. If I had it, I'd wrap the plug & connector in red tape so it couldn't come apart and looked unusual. Somebody sometime will be in that garage and need to plug in a compressor or shop vac or Skil saw and....

    You keep the adapter connected to the plug on the EVSE and then plug it into a 240V receptacle. When you unplug, you unplug it all, leaving a 240V receptacle ready for whatever 240V plug you want to plug in.
