There is a protective cap to cover the DC charging port in my Ev6 but I am surprised to see nothing to protect the J1772 port. Even though the door has a seal around the charging ports but I can still see dust, dirt, and may be even moisture can enter the charging port. With my 3D printer I designed and made this flexible protective cap to give my charging port some additional protection against the elements.

May I ask what 3D printer you are using for something like this? 😁

I use a PRUSA MK3 printer, one of the best and reliable 3D printers on the market.
You should disclose if you are actively marketing/selling a product regardless of its merits. People primarily go on these forums to listen to users experiences. Personally i would be upset if i was being baited into a product pitch by unknowingly clicking into an infomercial

I see these exact photos on Ebay.

Admin: please delete my post. I don’t want to mislead anyone. I am a EV6 owner just want to share an idea.
IMHO I don't think you were intending to mislead anyone with your product post but I can see how some folks could construe it as product advertising/placement. I think most folks here are pleased to see members like yourself step up and try to come up with a solution to an issue.

I dont see a reason it should be covered tho. I had a chevy Volt before this for 3 years and always had dust or water get around the port. Never affected my charging at all. I can understand having the DC covered when you're using just level 1 or 2 charging.
