    Hello all, I bought my Tesla back in October 2023. I recently did a road trip and was caught close to going right down to 0% on my battery. Luckily, I was able to navigate to a supercharger before I lost all battery, but it sparked some questions: What do you consider to be must haves for...

    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...
