    Newbie question on adapters: Is there a Tesla brand NACS-to-J1772 adapter?

    With yesterday's announcement of the Universal Wall Connector coming in October, I was thinking of returning the regular Wall Connector that I got two weeks ago (still new in box). I've owned a Model Y Long Range for just under three weeks now and we've been fine with using the Mobile Charger...

    Ontario - Flo chargers

    I'm heading up to Horseshoe Valley this weekend where there's a Flo charger available and may need to use. Anyone have any experience using these? Are they reliable at all? Do you need to have an app and membership or can you simply use a credit card on the unit to be able to charge? I see that...

    Why can't I charge through the Type2 to J1772 to TPC multi-adapter?

    Hi I tried to convert the V3 Type2 WC connector to J1772 first, and then connect the original J1772 to TPC adapter to charge the Model 3. But the charging indicator is red and cannot be charged. What is the problem? Do I need to add any protocol or resistor? The ECU on my car is Gen4...

    J1772 adapter melted

    So I was using an EVGo L2 charger at my gym just now for my M3 and was charging for about 3 hours. I came back and unplugged the charger, but noticed it was really hot. I’ve charged at different L2s before and never came back to a hot charger. I didn’t think much of it, so I left to go to...

    J1772 adapter charge port latch logic inverted

    We just bought a 2015 Model S. When we use the J1772 adapter, the charge port latch is locked only when the car is NOT charging. For example, if I put in the adapter first, it immediately latches. Then when I put in the J1772 outlet, the car unlatches the port. Then it gives a warning about...

    Power Sharing for J1772 chargers

    I’m putting in chargers for my company. For our tesla chargers/wall connectors the power sharing feature is a huge advantage, running one high-amperage circuit versus lots of parallel smaller circuits minimizes electrician costs and number of chargers and maximizes charging rate for the whole...

    Level 2 charging behavior - Charge station not powered / Ready to charge - ChargePoint - J1772

    I have a 2017 Model S & I have chargepoint stations at work. For years, I would get out of my car, religiously plug the adapter into the vehicle's chargeport and then mess around with authorizing the ChargePoint station. Last step would be for me to plug the tail from the chargepoint into the...

    Charge Interrupted. Condensation in J1772 Plug w/Adapter?

    Purchased Model 3 in November 2019. We have been using a Clipper Creek EVSE for three years prior to that, using Tesla's J1772 adapter for the Model 3. No issues charging the Model 3 until recently. A couple of times, I noticed the EVSE was flashing a red error when plugged into the Tesla...

    Are there any aftermarket J1772 adapters out there?

    I assumed J1772 adapters would be a dime a dozen and thought I’d just grab a couple extras from Amazon. It turns out I cannot find anything online, other than the OEM Tesla units. At $95 they seem way overpriced. There are a few on Ebay for a little less but they’re still pricey. Is this not a...

    J1772 Adapter Storage?

    Where do you all store your J1772 adapter? I use mine frequently as I charge at work (free).... I've been storing it in the little well on the left side of the trunk area, but I find it clumsy to open the trunk and charger port, each time, not to mention when it's raining or snowing all the...

    Two J1772 charging issues: EVSE schedule and sharing.

    Hi, #1. When charging on EVSE with internal schedule due to time of day variable rates, M3 does not wake up once EVSE starts advertising. No other J1772 car i have or had had trouble following J1772 pilot signal regardless of when it transitions. My problem is that since i am charging two...

    No Way to Unlock Charge Port from Console?

    I had a situation today where I was using a ChargePoint J1772 adapter in an underground garage, and the charge port got into a state where it was open but locked.

    Near Salt Water

    So, I am spending the week on the Gulf of Mexico. I drove around (in an ICE) checking out all the charging options. Nothing was being used, anywhere. But it brought a question to mind: if I ever used a charing station close to a body of salt water, should I be concerned about any effects of...

    Charge Port Characteristics - rare but possible concerns

    I wanted to share some recent esoterica about the charging port locking modes of Model S, and describe a very rare but possible situation and how to work around it. The summary is: if your charge port ever fails to unlock, make sure that the shore power level is reduced below ~5-7A. In nearly...

    J1772 Hydra - charge two vehicles with one charger

    Last year as a sort of adjunct to the OpenEVSE project, I created a device called the J1772 Hydra. It's designed to allow two plug-in vehicles to share a charging station, but to do so safely and in full compliance with the J1772 specification. I haven't posted about it here before because it's...
