Downtown Melbourne EV Fast Charger Ribbon Cutting

Here’s a sneak peek at the ribbon cutting event that took place at downtown Melbourne’s newest EV charging station.  The first DC fast charger in Brevard County, FL.  The Space Coast EV Drivers were invited to do Q & A with attendees at the ribbon cutting. Stay tuned for photos and videos from the event. Lots of electric vehicle drivers were on hand to celebrate the unveiling.

3D Printed J1772 Plug Holder

Do you use the portable 110V charger for your Chevy Volt or other EV as your main charger?  Do you ever wonder where to put the plug after you’ve removed it from the car?  Do you just drape it over the charger box or just set it on a nearby shelf?  Do you wish there was a nice spot you could just put the plug in like at a public charging station?  Wish no more!  With the advent of 3D printers you can now simply download this plug holder and print it out in hard plastic.  Then just bolt it to the wall near the charger and you can plug it in just like you’ve always wanted.  Take a look at the pictures to see it in action.  Leave us a comment if you wanted one of these and/or would use one.  And if you have a 3D printer this is the link to the file I used to print it:  http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:153449
