    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter - Comparison of Just a Few Possible Storage Options

    You want one? Send me your address by pm/dm. I'll stick it (brown, black, or white?) in a mailer and send it (no padding needed :D). (I can also offer a case (discounted) to hold CCS1 adapter.)

    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter - Comparison of Just a Few Possible Storage Options

    Harumio sent me some of these things (see photo). Being a little slow, I still am not sure how to use a cushion with the CCS1 adapter, but at least I have a colorful choice. :)

    A Potential ("new") Source of Electric-Car Charging Adapters

    Good analysis by you. Here is a response from Electway (that had gone to my Spam Folder): "Our CHAdeMO to Tesla adapter still on R&D phase,will let you know when it is ready." and in response to a followup question from me: "All Tesla adapters are under developent[sic]. Maybe ready by the...

    A Potential ("new") Source of Electric-Car Charging Adapters

    I don’t know what that means. But I have experienced problems accessing Chinese websites, including the Tesla-China site. Sites there can be “down” for annoyingly long periods.

    CHAdeMO adapter is missing from Tesla website.

    As you may know better than I do, retrofitting an older North American Model 3/Y to achieve CCS capability is possible. For 2020--> cars with the "stripped" Gen4 ECU (the otherwise latest ECU that was unfortunately lacking a key chip or something) it is a relatively simple swap of the "bad" ECU...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    If anyone needs/wants one of the early cases (no longer available) from Harumio or (sold out on) Amazon, head on over to Crazy Tim's CCS1 Adapter Case sale. (I'll try to offer a good deal.)

    CCS Adapter for North America

    Another third-party CCS1-to-Tesla adapter (similar to the SETEC)? See post here.

    A Potential ("new") Source of Electric-Car Charging Adapters

    OK, this was new to me. Although the Chinese firm Electway is mentioned in four previous TMC posts, most of those cite outdated links and none were discussing actual charging adapters. What initially caught my eye was this eBay auction: CHAdeMO-to-GB/T Adapter Ignore the (arguably ridiculous)...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Yes, I knew it wasn't an official test program (hence the use of the quotes). Nonetheless, it has acted as an experiment, I suppose. Still curious why Models S and X weren't included? (Probably because so many are pre-2020 or otherwise couldn't accept the adapter.) What you are saying is...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Yes, your speculations are right on target. I doubt that it was planned, but in hind-sight one could be forgiven for thinking that the whole thing-- The genuine and imagined problems of range anxiety and Supercharging unavailability/congestion. An desirable remedy (growing numbers of CCS charge...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Yes. There are CCS1-to-Tesla (North American TPC proprietary connector) adapters (1 Tesla product; 2 third-party products). The Tesla adapter is available from South Korea. (Much-discussed on TMC.) No Tesla-to-CCS1 adapter yet, as far as I know.

    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter - Comparison of Just a Few Possible Storage Options

    Another use: As others have mentioned, having a brightly-colored thing on a black adapter--especially if it will fit on the small, easily overlooked J1772 adapter--will help visually remind drivers to remember to pull the adapter out of the socket before driving away from a charging site. And...

    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter - Comparison of Just a Few Possible Storage Options

    Turns out staff at Harumio saw these posts and have been trying to communicate by email with me about the "mysterious pink thing." But my (cheapo) email system was putting their email messages in my SPAM folder. Here's what Harumio says: "The function of the <pink sponge-like> item is...

    Good guess. Where can I get one. I’ll try the usual suspects (i.e., Amazon and eBay).

    California Timeline: Car Purchase, License & Registation, HOV Stickers, and FasTrak CAV Toll-Tag

    Search through this Thread (or TMC in general) for pertinent posts that discuss applying for HOV stickers before receiving your permanent license plates. I believe the general consensus was that it makes sense to apply for HOV stickers as soon as you receive your car--i.e., as soon as you have...

    GIANT Tesla CCS1 ADAPTER CASE SALE!!!

    Oh, sorry. But unfortunately, the numbers just don't make sense. That case (the latest from Harumio) cost me $45 (shipping included). Even if I sold it at a discount, I'd still have to ship it to you in Ohio. These days shipping in the US is expensive. What? Maybe $15-$20? It really makes more...

    GIANT Tesla CCS1 ADAPTER CASE SALE!!!

    Right. I use a zippered small-gun nylon case for my CHAdeMO adapter (that I never use).

    GIANT Tesla CCS1 ADAPTER CASE SALE!!!

    I have both. The original, smaller one with cushioned-indentation for just the CCS1 adapter, and the newer, larger one with spaces for both CCS1 and J1772 adapters. I also have that Amazon case (see previous posts) that will fit both adapters, though tightly. I figured to hold onto the new...

    GIANT Tesla CCS1 ADAPTER CASE SALE!!!

    ***** Seriously (moderators: this is a real "sale" of actual Tesla-related items), I have several basically new, unused cases used for evaluation (see here). if you want one of the Amazon or even Harumio cases, let me know. I am near Sacramento, California. In-person pickup would, naturally...

    Model X (only) - FSD beta

    I have a Model X and I see the speed limit whether in FSD or not. It took me a minute to remember that this is what this Thread was originally about (see OP), and that I had posted about this issue in this very Thread. Check out Post #s 207, 208, and 210. Last year (December 2021), at least...

    Model X (only) - FSD beta

    Yes. In my experience using FSD Beta for freeways is generally good. I hear that it is basically like AP or EAP. My complaints are about using FSD Beta on surface streets. I have seen improvement in the last six months. But a nearby small traffic circle still confounds FSD Beta every time. It is...

    Model X (only) - FSD beta

    Aghhh! So..hard..to..resist!! Oh, screw it. We told you so! Ah. That feels better. Seriously. If you really read all the feedback you'll see that many have said that FSD Beta is not even close to being self-driving, let alone being "full" anything. Nonetheless, it is good to participate (a)...

    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter - Comparison of Just a Few Possible Storage Options

    Yeah, I was thinking that it was a pad that fits over the TPC plug part to protect the car's finish from getting scratched? (Totally just guessing.) Whatever, I totally want it! :)

    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter - Comparison of Just a Few Possible Storage Options

    Just to be clear, it's the pink thing I'm talking about (in Post #51). 'Cause it also looks like there is a "Thank You" business card in the photo.

    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter - Comparison of Just a Few Possible Storage Options

    My only “gripe” is that I did not receive the mysterious pink thing in the mesh pocket shown in the Haumio photos online. What is that thing (inside red circle)?

    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter - Comparison of Just a Few Possible Storage Options

    New Harumio case (the large one) received today (6/1/22). 9 days after ordering. 3 days after email notification (w/tracking number) from Harumio. So even with the delay caused by the cases not yet being delivered to Harumio in Korea, that's pretty speedy. Harumio comes through again! FYI...

    Coincidentally, I just posted this asking about the new CHAdeMO standard--i.e., where is it?

    International Electric-Car Charging-Plug Standards

    What happened with that GB/T (China) + CHAdeMO (Japan) = ChaoJi (CHAdeMO 3.0) standard that we have been hearing about occasionally for a few years? Thst might have helped unify two major, and hence eventually the minor, Asian countries somewhat? (I must assume from the apparent general lack of...

    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter - Comparison of Just a Few Possible Storage Options

    Do you mean here? I hear good things about EVSE Adapters dot com. But yes, the 14-foot Supercharge-rated extension cable (packed with thick copper cable, most likely) is not cheap--$550. Valuable if you run into that problem a lot, though. (I.e., ICE cars blocking easy access to Supercharger...

    Models 3 & Y Gen 4 ECU (necessary for CCS Capability)

    I believe that Part Number 1537264-00-B from Original Post #1 above is the correct Gen 4 ECU for 2021 cars that have (or want to have) CCS compatibility. This is the part that people are trying to order from Tesla or buy on eBay. See Post #2. If a (after February) 2021 Model 3 or Y lacks CCS...

    International Electric-Car Charging-Plug Standards

    Oh, yes. I see what you mean. The older Models S and X with Type 2 port can be powered by the GM/T-to-Type 2 DC adapter. And the Models 3 & Y and Models S & X with CCS2 ports can accept AC power through the upper (Type 2) part of their CCS2 ports. But I am reminded that they cannot accept DC...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Smart. The risk we early buyers take is that Tesla-North America will eventually offer the adapter for much less money. But that may not happen. Based on prior evidence, it can takes years for Tesla to lower the prices for charging accessories. And there is the (in my mind very real) risk that...

    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter - Comparison of Just a Few Possible Storage Options

    Update: No sooner do I post that (on Saturday), then I get a message (today, Sunday) from Harumio saying that my new case "order is on the way." I now have a FedEx tracking number and everything. So like I said, things are constantly changing in Harumio-land. I think that they work hard as...

    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter - Comparison of Just a Few Possible Storage Options

    With your experience of owning both 2015 (bought new?) and 2022 Tesla models, it would be interesting to hear your assessment of how Tesla has changed--for the good or the bad--in seven years.

    Retrofit CCS compatibility onto earlier (NA) Model 3 - DIY approach

    I am reading that the answer is no. Purchasing a CCS1 adapter now from Harumio should be like buying anything else on the Internet. (I.e., credit card or PayPal and address.)

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Those of us active on the TMC forums are reasonably up-to-date with Tesla issues and news. However, is it possible that the average Tesla driver may not know much if anything about a North American CCS adapter--what it's used for, who makes it, et cetera? The majority of drivers charge at home...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    That's an interesting question. The new Roadster will be the Tesla flagship, I guess. At it's asking price $200,000+?), in my mind it should come with all accessories and options--e.g., both TPC and CCS1 charge ports (or at least the CCS1 adapter thrown in), plus the Gen2 Mobile Connector Bundle.

    Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter - Comparison of Just a Few Possible Storage Options

    On either Sunday or Monday (not sure which day) Harumio was sold out of the new case (to buy either separately or with an adapter). I requested being alerted by email when they received more. Then I happened to check again and I mistakenly thought they had them back in stock. So I ordered on...

    Followup: Oops! It was pointed out on another Thread that the new case is a pre-order. Harumio is still waiting to receive them. They are going to receive at least 45 cases--at least 15 are currently spoken for (so 30 left for purchase). They will start shipping in early June, at which time we...

    After weighing the options, I ordered one this week, also. When they first got the new, bigger case (Tuesday, 5/24/22, or earlier) they had 45 available for purchase (according to this website page). Perhaps there is additional stock for case-and-adapter combos? Regardless, today (05/27/22) they...
