Introducing EVerlast-A

EVerlast-A is an electrically conductive lubricant that extends the service life of the J-1772 power connectors.

EVerlast-A is specially formulated to reduce wear of the contact/connector surfaces and provide increased electrical conductivity that reduces connector heating during the EV charging cycle. It is the only heavy duty electrically conductive lubricant specially designed and tested to be used on the J1772 connectors in the EV charging stations.

It is estimated that the replacement of the EVCS, J-1772 connectors will cost about $950.

After analyzing the rapid growth of both the markets and production of electric vehicles and chargers worldwide (maybe more than one per EV) it is easy to extrapolate the production of the EV’s and charging stations to the need to maintain the connectors in the EV's and the EV chargers. 

While correct lubrication of all of the affected connectors in both the EV's and the chargers is preferred, the priority of importance is that of the more frequently mated connectors in the "nozzle" (J1772 connector) of the power cable that runs from the charger to the mating connector in the EV.

The Problem

As with all connectors, those used to charge EV batteries are subject to corrosion and wear in ANY environment. This connector wear may not only lead to degradation of performance, requiring longer charging times, but also to the need for replacement of parts. The scenario of connector wear and failure mode is as follows: The repeated matings of the J1772 connector without a conductive lubricant will leave debris that will in turn increase the resistance of the contacts of the connectors.  As the resistance of those contacts increases the voltage to the battery will decrease and finally overheat the connectors and perhaps destroy the EV by fire.

The Solution

Ohmega-Z-Products has designed EVerlast-A, a new product tailored specifically for EV recharging station connectors, to keep them working in optimum condition and an inexpensive way to incorporate connector life protection early on. Lubricating all of the connector contacts in the EV battery charging circuit with Ohmega-z-Products'EVerlast-A will prevent wear, its resultant debris, and maintain low resistance thru the battery charging circuit.   As the charging voltage increases, that is driven by the need for reduced charge time, the need for a wear-proofing conductive lubricant in the charging circuits becomes obvious.  Ohmega-Z-Product EVerlast-A is the solution waiting to be applied.

Pure Silver

EVerlast-A is formulated with pure silver powder to improve electrical conductivity and is blended with a non-hydrocarbon oil and a powerful lubricant to reduce contact/connector friction. Capable of an upper temperature of 280C, EVerlast-A is more powerful than any other contact lubricant on the market today.

The new charging improvements being designed for faster EV charging are forcing the need for an electrically conductive lubricant that will extend the service life of both the J1772 in the stations and the mating connector in the vehicles.

Everlast-A's unique combination of electrically conductive and slippery components will enhance the service life of any frequently mated power connectors.

We are looking for Field Testers

Any catastrophic failure or even performance degradation of the connectors in the charging circuit will require replacement of not only the J1772, but also the mating connector in the EV. While the replacement costs have not yet been published by the connector companies, it is estimated to be over $800.

We whole-heartedly believe that along with regular maintenance, EVerlast-A will extend the life of connectors by protecting them from premature wear and eventual failure that lead to these repairs, replacement costs and down time. To solidify this, we need help.

About John Ebbinghaus


John Ebbinghaus

John started solving electrical conductivity problems about 35 years ago by inventing products that are still manufactured and sold by Prohmtect. His assignments, while working at two top aerospace companies, were to advance the state-of-the-art guidance systems as well as investigating root-cause of field and production failures. In early 2017, John formed Ohmega-Z-Products to continue to design and invent new products to prevent electrical connector failures.

Free samples are available for Beta Phase testing of EVerlast-A. In-turn for free samples, we ask that the recipient sign an NDA and agree to report the approximate number of connector insertions and any noticeable improvement or degradation of the charging cycle.
