Wow. I didn't realize there was an adapter that we could use with the Tesla chargers. That product on ebay does have this disclaimer ...

"This adapter is NOT COMPATIBLE and is not to be used with the Tesla Super Charger Network."

I was under the assumption that ALL Tesla chargers were 'Super Chargers'. Now, how to identify which Tesla chargers this adapter will work with? Hmmmm.....

It's going to work with the wall charger type chargers that Tesla owners have at home.

Here in Korea the Kia N iro EV was released a few months ago with CCS1.
The new Soul EV is about to be released.
Plenty of sightings here of test vehicles charging.
The new Soul EV here in Korea is also CCS1

The local Kia repear shop has replaced its Chademo ch arger with a dual nozzle Chademo CCS1.

Image

The New Soul EV in the United States will also be CCS1.

this makes me sad cause the number of CCS out here is way more then Chademo already .
but maybe that means ill have no problem waiting in line.

The New Soul EV will be CCS1 in Korea and the US (+ Canada?).
The New Soul EV will almost certainly be CCS2 in Europe.

I think it will be the same as the new N iro EV

I saw a Niro EV (actually three of them) at a local dealer yesterday. They are definitely CCS type 1. So they are “in the wild” now.

Also, the “Electrify America” charging stations that are going in around here (part of the Volkswagen diesel cheating settlement) are predominately CCS1. Most of them have a half-dozen CCS1 chargers and one Chademo. That said, none of them within easy reach are active yet.

One place I currently stop when needed for a quick charge has added CCS1 to their existing Chademo installation as well.

It makes a certain amount of sense as the Chevy Bolt (when equipped with level 3 charging ports at all) is also CCS1.

I’m wondering if other networks around (Blink in particular) will start placing CCS1 chargers either alongside existing Chademos or redoing some existing installations. When I turn in my leased 2016 Soul EV in September I won’t be needing the Chademo any more.....
