2015 OpenEVSE Build Contest Winner
Steampunk OpenEVSE creation by Craig K. a fully functional 1910 Wooden Wall Phone Charging Station.
Congratulations Craig K. the 2015 OpenEVSE Build contest winner.
Craig restored the classic telephone by replacing the receiver with a new-old-stock receiver (receiver is the term for the ear piece). Everything functions as well as it did in 1910. He could connect it to plain-old-telephone-service and would raise an operator by cranking the crank - I kid you not. Craig has a 2G cellphone module but is holding off on integrating until he can be sure I'm not going to destroy it with the high voltage AC produced by the crank.
