Default Replacing J1772 Plug

My Blink charger needs repair/replacement of the J1772 plug. Does anyone know if I can simply buy any new J1772 plug and have an electrician replace the existing J1772 plug?

Sorry in advance if this is a really silly question but it appears the electrician who installed both my Blink charger and Schneider charger is no longer in business.

Try these guys: http://www.tucsonev.com/. They sell the plug by itself or pre-wired to a cable.

Thanks @Fabulist! Funny thing, I remembered your previous posts on Tucson EV and checked out their website earlier today. They have the plug for $90, so now just need to find an electrician able/willing to do the install.

You are welcome and good luck. If you get the connector pre-wired to the cable, you may be able to replace it yourself (after turning off the power of course -- safety first).

Keep this post around. I have the same charger as WattGas -- just a couple years newer.

@JCMorrill - don't worry, it's not the Schneider Electric charger that I'm having the plug issue with...it's the Blink Network charger that I use with the Volt. Rest easy!
