Can I use an adaptor to charge my Type 1 EV from a Type 2 cable or outlet?
What is an adapter? According to WorkSafe’s proposed Part 1 guidelines:
3.1.24 Vehicle Adaptor means a portable accessories constructed as an integral unit incorporating both vehicle inlet portion and vehicle connector portion.
This means a device that has a inlet socket as what a vehicle would have, and a outlet plug for connection into a vehicle socket.
Under Part 1 (1st Nov 2017 edition) section 9.1, Unsafe Practices:
(a) use of any EV adaptor that is not approved by the EVSE manufacturer; or
(b) cascading two or more supply leads.
Note an adaptor with a cable between the inlet and outlet is defined as a supply lead.
