Yeah, I saw this.  It's apparently only 2013-2015 models.  Sounds like I get a new EVSE cord.  I'm hoping I can finagle a way to keep my old one after they give me the new one.  I'd like to make a project out of the old one or see if these guys can convert it for me: evseupgrade.com

I edited your title.  Voltage in the USA is 120 volts.  I have no idea where this mass belief that it is 110 volts came from.

I really didn't use it much, but it will be nice to have a new one.

Had mine replace about a year ago; plug had melted. New replacement still gets fairly warm and outlet light blinks red often when warn/hot. I guess my replacement was too early to have thermistor?

I bet it will be really hard to keep the old one. I'd imagine it will be a condition of the recall that the new one is only handed out by turning in the old one.

 

I never had a problem with mine.

I'm pretty sure you're right, but it doesn't hurt to try.

I don't think I have used mine more than 5 times in 5 years.  240 volts is so much faster.  It's not a problem for a properly wired outlet.
