    Can I leave the wall connector cord/plug on the ground in the rain?

    My wall connector is the full 18 feet from the port on my Model Y. There is no place near to hang up the plug and I don't want to walk 18 feet each way to hang the plug up. So I'd like to leave the plug on the ground but I'm concerned that rain and snow would get in and cause a short. Has anyone...

    Basic charge point costs

    Moderator comment - information in this post superseded by post Basic charge point costs There's been debate about the cheapest way to install a charge point, if not able to take advantage of the OLEV grant (or just if you don't want a smart charge point). I thought I'd try and cost the...

    Mobile Connector for PHEVs?

    Maybe it's the boredom of quarantine or my pure 'enthusiast like' fanboy curiosity, but I've always wondered (again just for kicks) if a Tesla Mobile Connector would work on charging my 2014 Ford Fusion Energi Plug in Hybrid at my current Level 1 (trickle charge) rate and with the proper...

    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...

    Which charger for rental house?

    Looking at upgrading a rental house with an EV charger. As nice as the HPWC is, I assume it would increase the value of the rental more if it wasn’t Tesla-only. Can other EVs charge from a NEMA 14-50 outlet? That would be cheap and plenty fast enough for my Model 3, I just don’t know whether...

    Change generic EVSE to use a Tesla Plug?

    I previously had a BMW i3 and got a JuiceBox EVSE for home charging. I've been using the same charger for my S with the J1772 adapter, but would like to use just a plug. We have two cars in the garage and the adapter + J1772 creates a tight space for the other car to pass when my car is...

    "Charge cable may not be plugged in correctly"

    Hey, I've had my Model 3 for a couple of months. I've plugged it in and charged it many times without issues before. Usually, when I plug it in, after a second the Tesla logo turns dark blue (from pale blue), at which point the charge cable is locked in. But today, I got a car wash from one...

    Towing extension cable

    For those of you who tow, I would LOVE to buy an extension charging cable so I do not have to unhook the trailer to charge. I have seen a few SuperCharger stations with a charger that could work for towing but they seen to be in the majority. A cable about 15' long would allow us to nose in...

    Charging wall power Europe

    for every country in Europe Tesla seems to have a different charger for wall outlet (shuko). Instead of buying all these different chargers wouldn't it be much easier to buy a world adapter for wall outlets and plug in the (Dutch) shuko charger?

    Likelihood of a CHAdeMO adapter for the Model S

    We know almost for certain that the Model S will not support CHAdeMO if Tesla does not provide an adapter. There have been some rumors about it, but nothing concrete. At this point we have to assume that CHAdeMO charging will not be supported. In this thread: Ads which illustrate why I am so...
