SAE J1772 combo connector
DC Fast Charge
Designed and developed in accordance with SAE J1772™ and IEC 62196-3 draft standards, ensures full compatibility with EVSE charging stations.
The SAE J1772 “combo connector,” which will allow for both slower ac charging and faster dc charging of plug-in vehicles using a single vehicle electrical inlet, has been approved as the new standard. The three major domestic automakers (Chrysler, Ford, General Motors) and the five major automakers from Germany (Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche, & Volkswagen) have adopted it as their standard.
Hinge assembly All other connectors being used are either a "right" or "left" hand open. From a manufacturing standpoint, you have to make both a right and left hand cover and a customer has to select which one from a webpage. We have eliminated this by making a cover that is both right and left hand open.

Companies like GOe3 are changing the way Americans road trip. With a plan in place to install its fast charge stations at approximately 45 mile intervals across major interstate routes, soon all electric vehicle drivers will have the ability to drive across the country without fuel. Their chargers incorporate both the CHAdeMO and SAE combo connectors. Companies such as NRG/eVgo and ABB are also building charging staions that incorporate both connectors into their chargers. BMW and Volkswagon have collaborated with ChargePoint to install a large number of charging stations starting with the largest concentration on the east and west coast. These stations will support both CHAdeMO and CCS standards. In a recent agreement, Nissan will also build charging stations that support both standards.
