120v operation with the current 40a Advanced Kit

I think I know the answer to this, but I wanted to double check before ordering.  

Will I be able to use this kit with a regular 110v nema 5-15 household outlet for the time being until I get 220v installed in my garage later this year or next year?  I'd like to buy one charger now and upgrade it to fit my needs.

Sorry if this is a newb question.  I have some wiring experience from building guitar amps and various automotive projects, but no experience with circuits like these.


Yes. the Advanced series will take whatever voltage you provide to it from 90 up to 264. 120v, 208v and 240v all work great.

OpenEVSE Support


I just bought an Advanced OpenEVSE kit.

Am going to make the unit portable with a 14-50 plug.

For a 14-50 connector to 5-15 plug, exactly how is an adapter cable wired?

Thanks and good health,  Weogo

That's what I figured, just wanted to make sure.

Good health,  Weogo

 If you're feeling more wealthy than handy, it looks like you can buy these:

 Hi Tony,
That's a nice looking assembly.
I do live audio production and build a lot of cabling.

The reason I originally asked the question is one video showed
tying the ground and neutral wires, which I understood to be a no go.
I've searched but can't find the video to post a correction.

Thanks and good health,  Weogo
