Has anyone installed a charging port like this?

Has anyone done something like this?

With wipers installed, opening & closing the hood isn't so easy and puts incremental stress on the wiper arm. So I was just wondering about a way to make it faster & easier to plug in the rig. It will also encourage me to do it more often. :-)

Anyway, just wondering if anyone had done this, where did you put it, what are any pros & cons. Thanks.

You can drill a hole in the glove compartment and route the power cable through it.

Here in the UK the std inlet in the dash, doesnt work well with our much larger 3 pin 13a plugs. The plugs also get hot as time and wear causes resistance on the internal fuse. So I now fit the 16a Inlet as shown, just above the passenger cup holder.

Our 2013 EV came with access to the charger power plug in the dash. What year is your's?

Voltronics 160Ah Li-ion conversion kit is installed in my 2013 EV.

Hold the Control key down and click on a picture or a link, or a Thread, to open it in a new Tab.

I thought about using a charger plug like that for my 2017 570 full-size, but i ended up just dropping the plug out under the steering wheel. I ended up doing this because it was simple, out of the way, and I can run the extension cord through the steering wheel to plug it in. This way no one takes off without unplugging it. Hope this helps.
