    New 240v outlet pulling 0 amps.

    Hello, I recently had an electrician install a nema 1450 receptacle on a 40 amp breaker for my mobile connector. When plugging in, the mobile connector shows the pulsating green light as if it’s charging, and the car itself says it’s charging but it’s pulling 0 amps. It is showing 240 volts...

    Can I use extension cord for Tesla Mobile Connector?

    I have been charging my Model Y using mobile connector (120V). I have been using an extension chord because I charge the car outside of my garage most of the time. I just happened to read the mobile connector manual (see attached) and on page 5 it specifically stated not to use any sort of...

    Did Telsa Mobile Connector come with NEMA 14-50 adapter?

    I got my Model Y in mid-2021, so it came with a mobile connector. I'm considering installing a NEMA 14-50 outlet at my home, but I couldn't find the NEMA 14-50 adapter for the mobile connector.

    Adjusting amp current draw when using 6-30 to 14-50 adapter

    I purchased a 6-30 to 14-50 adapter for an Airbnb with a 6-30 30A outlet in their barn. Tesla does not sell a 6-30 adapter for the Mobile Connector, so this is a hack of sorts. It's unclear to me if I need to adjust the current draw in the car to 30A (or maybe less to be safe) to ensure my...

    Electrician and work recommendation

    Reached out to a few electricians to install a charging outlet. My preference is for a NEMA 14-50 outlet as I don't want to be tied to a wall connector especially since my next EV may not be a Tesla. Of the three electricians, work scope was consistent, and couple did put forward an extra cost...

    14-30 charge adapter - 110v/120v capable?

    I'm trying to adapt to a 30amp 110v service and I'm not seeing a 110v capable plug with 30amp capability. I'd rather not use the 5-20 adapter as it's not going to get full amperage. Given that the 5-15 connector has been known to accept 240v (despite this being a bad idea), I'm curious if...
