JdeMO now for the Tesla Roadster (3rd party CHAdeMO for Roadster)

I'm surprised that no one else has posted this...

The guys at QuickChargerPower.com have adapted their JdeMO (CHAdeMO for Toyota RAV4EV 2nd Gen (the Tesla Model S in a Toyota body)) for use with Tesla Roadsters.

They have been discussing this on teslamotorsclub.com and SpeakEV.com and I realized that it's not here.

TMC - http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/showthread.php/55093-JdeMO-for-the-Roadster

If you look through those threads, they have posted pictures of a Roadster charging on CHAdeMO from earlier in the week.

The QCP guys are gathering interested parties and are building 10-20 of these units as the response has been lukewarm at best...

Check it out.

    If a 3rd party can pull this one off, why couldn't Tesla make a Supercharger compatible charging unit? Even if not as fast as MS/MX, like 1-2 hour charging @ 40kW - same power rating as regen ?

    At least we'd be able to leverage the Supercharger infrastructure. Would be wonderful.

    Here are some videos of the Roadster charging on CHAdeMO yesterday:

    <a href=" one shows the X, but I check in on the Roadster</a> a few minutes later.

    It's good news that DC fast charging is possible on the Roadster. I might be interested when I do the battery upgrade, if the Tesla service center can install it at the same time. This would bring a lot of convenience.

    Unless Tesla somehow made Supercharger access possible on the Roadster.

    @eric.zucker The JdeMO is a 3rd party product, not sure if the SC will install it for you. Contact the Quick Charger Power guys.
