    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...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector cable temperature

    I feel a bit silly asking this but is it normal for the cable going from the Wall Connector to the car to get pretty warm when charging? My wall connector was installed by an electrician that does this all the time so I'm assuming this is normal. It is a 60amp circuit so it is outputting the...

    Want a USED Tesla Wall Connector With 8.5 ft Cable

    I truly don't need the Tesla Wall Connector itself. What I want is the 8.5 ft cable that comes with it. So if the wall connector apparatus is in bad shape, as long as the 8.5 ft cable is in good shape, I would be interested to buy it from you. Len Jacobson

    8 1/2' Charging Cable

    A friend of mine recently purchased a Model 3 and was given not only the standard 20' (or is it 24'???) charging cable, but also a second cable that is 8 1/2' in length. Can anyone tell me how to acquire that shorter charging cable? Thank you. Len Jacobson

    Automatic charge connection testing?

    I've noticed, as many of you probably have, that when you first connect an EVSE to a Tesla with charging scheduled at a later time, the Tesla still asserts READY and ramps up to a few amps. Then it drops READY to de-energize the cable and waits for the scheduled charging time. The whole process...

    On Street Home Charging

    Hey, Newbie here - thanks for accommodating this question. I'm considering switching to a Tesla from a BMW so I'm deep in research mode. I live in Bristol - a typical Victorian/Edwardian street. I don't have a driveway; I'm on a corner, so I have a road out front and down the side of my...

    Rescue Mode

    Given the amount of Tesla cars on the road, it would be great if there was a "Rescue mode" whereby a Tesla driver could donate some battery power to a stranded Tesla on the road. Both cars would have to be in the Rescue Mode (one to donate and one to receive)and utilize a cable with Tesla plugs...

    Charging cable festoon in our garage

    Our driveway has a tight turn, so backing in the 3 (to get the charge port near the wall) isn't a good option (and the driver's door would be too close to our work bench, making it difficult to get in and out). We also have to zig-zag back-and-forth a few times to get into the garage, often...

    Charging Model X

    So sorry guys. I'm new Tesla owner Model X. Maybe it has been posted before but can anyone tell me if it is possible to create home charging with the cable directly connected to high voltage power supply (in Dutch it would be "krachtstroom") 380/400 V? So it would be on one end the type 2 outlet...

    Snow in the WC charge cable connector

    Yesterday we had a major snowstorm in the northeast US. My Tesla Model S was parked outside, and plugged into my Tesla Wall Connector (WC). When the snow was over, the snow removal crews were clearing the parking lot at my condo, so I went out to clear off the car and move it so that my space...

    Has anyone else had a 220v Adapter burn or melt? I plug in to the same 220v outlet every day at work. About 2 weeks ago, I noticed a "Charge Cable Fault" on my dash. When I unplugged, the adapter was very hot and I found this: The rear of the adapter was scorched. A Tesla Ranger came out...
