    3rd party Charging Port Cover Remote Control reviews

    Product link: https://amzn.eu/d/5yChow4 I saw this product online (available on Amazon and eBay). It’s basically used to open the charging flap and used on a non-Tesla charging cable to open the flap. Has anybody used this or a very similar device ? I also wanted to check - does this remote...

    Bicycle repair stand as a satisfactory charging cord organizer

    So I had a Park Tools bicycle repair stand sitting in my garage and it remains unoccupied by my bikes 99.99% of the time. Turns out it makes a fine cord organizer for my Tesla Wall Connector cable. I run the cable up the pole of the repair stand, gentle clamp it in the stand grip, and leave...

    Trading in car in 2 days…Mobile Connector won’t fully plug-in to Model 3

    Anyone run into this before? Having an issue where my mobile charger won’t fully plug into my Model 3’s port. Charger only seems to go about half way in and not far enough for car to recognize it. I’ve unplugged and re-plugged the mobile connector to its 240v outlet, and the Tesla lights on...

    My wall connector is too exposed during winter storms; looking for a solution

    I live in Maine with intense winter storms, and my wall connector and shed happen to be under a very large pine tree. I wasn't able to get a rugged cover installed for the car before the cold and frozen ground have arrived. There is too much risk to keep the car there during big winds, storms...

    Using a Prius Prime custom cable setup with my MY -- temporary

    I traded in a 2020 Prius Prime Limited for a Model Y. I had a Prius forum member make a custom cable pigtail that plugged into my NEMA 14-50 50A 240V receptacle and ended in a 5-15 socket. The two blades in the plug were wired to the two sides of the socket providing 240V. This worked because...

    2019 SR+. The charge wand will lock into place perfectly and stay locked while the car is charging. Full amps, no issue. Then when the charging is completed the wand lock releases and anyone can simply walk up and pull out the charge wand without even pushing the button. Has anyone else...

    Generation 1 or European Mobile charger for Model Y

    Hey folks... I’ve been looking on eBay and have seen a number of generation 1 and Europe spec mobile connectors. Can generation 1 or Europe spec mobile connectors, with a NEMA 14-50 plug attached, charge a Model Y? While they are not much cheaper it does increase the pool available to bid on...

    Charge Cord Extension & Y Splitter

    When I first bought my Model 3 I charged it by tying into my electric dryer connector (NEMA 14-30). Rather than unplug/plug my dryer cord each time, I bought a heavy duty Y-splitter so that the dryer and a 10 foot extension cord that reached my car could always be powered. After living with...

    Underground driveway charger?

    Has anyone had any luck with a decent underground driveway charging unit? There's no obvious point on my house where I'd want to stick the charger with giant cable, due to aesthetic reasons.

    Hint: HPWC cable from indoors to outdoors

    Hi. I sometimes charge inside and sometimes outside my garage. I also MUCH prefer a simple look outside without a lot of stuff. So I mounted my HPWC inside and drilled a 2" hole through my wall. I passed 2" ABS pipe through and out collars on the inside and outside to trap the "conduit". And...
