  1. This standard was known as MagneCharge or J1773. One of the main alleged benefits is that it’s inductive, so no exposed conductors. Back then some people thought exposed conductors would be a big problem.

    What I can’t figure out is if it’s AC or DC. I know some early EVs used only DC charging, and the charging units had to have a rectifier in them to convert power from the line.

  2. I haven’t checked it yet, but in our EV club meet yesterday someone mentioned that Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield managed to get hands on original EV1, which somehow wasn’t crushed. From the top of my head EV1 and Toyota RAV4 were the only ones using this type of connector?
