Wanted - CHAdeMO socket / charging port from a wrecked Leaf or iMiEV

Post by TimH »

Hi,

Is anyone holding a CHAdeMO DC charging port from a wrecked Leaf or iMiEV? Or know a source to buy one that isn't asking a ridiculous price? I've tried wreckers in Aust/NZ, US and suppliers of new ports in China, all are way too expensive for what it is. I guess I haven't tried a wrecker in Japan yet but not sure where to start there.

Am in Brisbane but happy to pay for shipping.

Thanks,
Tim

I'm sure a Japanese (or even USA) wrecker will have something. Auctions for wrecked EVs do come up from time to time but you're left trying to find a home for all the other parts.
Which kit are you going to install? I think only Orion BMS is currently set up to play nice with Chademo.

I think Leon Ford has a wrecked iMiev, unless he's already sold it.
Otherwise, try suziauto

You could try the "My Nissan Leaf " forum. https://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewforum.php?f=27 There are many people searching for and buying wrecks around the world for the batteries.

Just saw an Imiev wrecking on gumtree. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/slacks- ... 63436_9299
He has sold most of the stuff but the CHADEMO socket could be left.

Yes planning to use Orion BMS again, have already used it in my Cortina and have CHAdeMO working. I used a CHAdeMO socket from a wreckced iMIev I had. Unfortunately I can't find another one locally now.

Trying to find a wrecker/supplier that has this part (and willing to ship) in Japan is the challenge.

That was actually my iMiev wreck a while back, I already used the charging ports, but thanks anyway!
