    Installing Wall Connector is better than NEMA 14-50

    I bought a new Model Y recently and was planning to install NEMA 14-50 Receptacle for the Mobile charger. I saw many posts and youtube videos regarding this. Now, it looks like a wall connector is the best option to install. For Installing NEMA Outlet for Mobile Charger - I have to buy NEMA...

    Wall connector not recording as “Home Charging”

    So I just installed a wall connector in my garage and everything works fine except my app does not seem to recognize that the wall connector is in my house and when I use it to charge, the app registers it as “Other” and calculates the usage and pricing incorrectly. I can’t find a way to fix...

    Gen 3 charger not charging after outage

    I purchased a Gen 3 charger and had it installed on the Controlled Load 1 circuit so that I could charge the car overnight when off-peak rates kick in about 12.30am and turn off at 7am. In Australia, electricity only runs through that circuit during these times. Unfortunately, the charger does...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector for sale

    Hi there, I recently had a NEMA 14-50 outlet installed for my plug-in wall connector and the wall connector unfortunately malfunctioned, but was under warranty so Tesla sent me a brand new Gen 3 Wall Connector. Instead of bringing my electrician back out to re-wire it, I would rather have the...

    Gen3 Wall Connector API?

    I noticed that the Gen 3 wall connector responds to most URLs (example http://<ip address>/status) with a 404, but noticed that if I try something like this: http://<ip address>/api/1/status I get no response. I'm wondering if there is an API underneath this thing that can be polled. Just...

    Tesla Gen 3 Charger prone to overheating?

    Getting ready to install a Level 2 Charger for my Model Y SR in Souther California and the electrician recommended I save the $500 on the Gen 3 Tesla Charger and just install a Nema 14-50 outlet and with an adapter and use the mobile connector instead. He said he had a number of issues with the...

    Getting billed for using a normal looking wall connector?

    At an apartment complex, there are a bunch of wall connectors (like what is in the tesla store). They were free to charge on them for a few months. On my last visit, I was billed $1.50 to my Tesla account. Apparently these wall connectors are "destination chargers" now capable of billing. This...

    Gen3 Wall Connector Question - load sharing?

    About a year ago, I installed two Gen 3 wall connectors. Due to my (old) house's electrical panel, they are both on the same circuit breaker circuit. I'm *eagerly* awaiting the long-promised load sharing feature so I can start using the second wall connector. Otherwise, it's basically garage...

    Gen3 HPWC disassembly, with overheating issues explained!

    Caution: Wall of text ahead! So, I got a secondhand Gen3 HPWC (TPN:1457768-01-F) that had known issues at full power and of course ran it right up to 48 amps to see what she'd do(note it had updated firmware). For a little while it did 48 amps, but after a half hour in my 20f garage, it...

    With the gen. 3 WC out in the USA for 14/15 months now...in Europe (the Netherlands for me) we still have to wait. I know my question is difficult to answer but maybe someone has a clue?

    Upgrade to Gen 3 Wall Connector firmware?

    I woke Wednesday morning to a notice that my 2021 Model 3 LR AWD did not charge over night. The message on the display said that the wall connector needed service. I connected to the wall connector hotspot and found a new question that wasn't there before - should the wall connector be allowed...

    Tesla Wall Connector FW 1.4.4

    I was getting the 3 flashing red lights (along with green stream while charging) on my wall connector. I called the support line (510-249-2490, option 2). They pushed a firmware update to it. It is now 1.4.4 and it looks like the interface changed a little. I held the button down for several...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    I am on my second Gen 3 Wall Connector/Charger. Purchased first one in June 2020. Wired to 60 amp breaker and delivered 48 amps 237 volts to vehicle. After 20-30 minutes it throttled back to 24 amps and was seeing an error code on LED lights (3 red blinks). Worked with Tesla support and they...

    Tesla wall connector gen3 overheating fix

    Just thought I’d put this here in case someone else runs into the issue with the latest gen 3 wall charger overheating (3 blinking red light) at 48amps. I called support and they had to force push a firmware update and that appeared to resolve the issue.

    What is the RS-485 port for on a Gen 3 Wall Connector?

    Just got my Wall Connector installed (finally!). Reading the manual in detail now that I've got it up & running.... I see on p. 10 of the manual that I've got an RS-485 port inside. I gather from reading here that the Gen 2 connectors used it for load sharing? (Which function is allegedly...

    Gen 3 Wall Charger - Power Sharing

    Anyone heard news on when the new Gen 3 wall chargers are expected to have the power sharing feature enabled? I'm also curious on how we'll get notified of when a software update gets released. For now, I'm just periodically connecting to the wall connector wifi SSID and checking to see if the...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector

    New Gen 3 Wall Connector will support Power Sharing with up to 16 units. I can see this being very beneficial for building out Destination Charging - during our trip to Wisconsin last month the hotel we stayed at in Oklahoma City had a number of Teslas rotate overnight thru their 3 chargers.
