    NEMA 6-50 and 14-50 adapters are labeled 30A

    I recently bought a NEMA Adapter Bundle from Tesla. All the adapters look good except for the NEMA 6-50 and 14-50 ones. They are both labeled as rated for 30A continuous on the adapter. The Gen 2 Mobile Connector is able to output 32A max, so shouldn't these two connectors be rated for 32A...

    Just ordered Model 3, need to set up charging, recommendations?

    Just ordered Model 3 standard range plus (263 miles), my garage has no 240V I believe, and not sure it's 100A or 60A. I have no knowledge of electrical stuff, so will hire an electrician to do things right. I read many posts and still am a bit confused. It seems this is what I need to do/make...

    Wall connector and nema 14-50. Overkill?

    I know this question had been beaten to death and I know the difference of using nema 14-50 vs wall changer but my question was more if I install both the nema 14-50 inside my garage for use in winter when I put the car in the garage and the wall charger outside for use well when the car is...

    NEMA 14-30 VS NEMA 14-50 charging speed for Model 3 Standard Range Plus

    The max current draw of NEMA 14-30 is 30A, and 50A for NEMA 14-50. However, the max Level 2 charging current of Model 3 Standard Range is limited to 32A. So I assume that there will not be noticeable difference between charging using NEMA 14-30 and NEMA 14-50, because the current draw will be...

    NEMA 14-50 to extension cord to NEMA 10-30 charging?

    I am taking a road trip over the holidays and my host has a standard 5-15 120V outlet and a 3-prong 10-30 dryer outlet. I have the 14-50 Tesla charging adapter. Rather than buy the 10-30 charging adapter from Tesla, I got a 14-50 to 10-30 adapter. So I would use the 14-50 on the Telsa mobile...

    Slow charging on NEMA 14-50: any advantages?

    Would there be any benefits to charging slow (lowering the Amps in the car) on a NEMA 14-50 capable of drawing 32 Amps? My commute is very predictable every day and charging my M3 LR AWD takes about 2-3 hours to reach 80% SOC. I tried 2 other approaches while charging with NEMA 14-50 at 32...

    Poll: What garage charging solution did you choose?

    I'm curious what other Model 3 owners have decided for their garage charging needs. It seems my installer and Tesla themselves are pushing me to get a HWPC, but I am leaning toward just a NEMA 14-50 @ 60 amps and taking the mobile connector with me when I travel and/or relying on Super Charging...

    New Jersey NEMA 14-50 Verification

    I'm having a NEMA 14-50 plug installed in my garage today. Since there is no ETA on my replacement VIN (long story for a different thread), and the contractor has this weird 30-day worry-free clause, I'd like to have someone swing by and test out my plug sooner rather than later. I'm in East...

    I'm 4-6 weeks out from getting my MX (100D). For now I plan to wire a 14-50 receptacle (50 Amp breaker) because it is cheap (relative) and easy. At some point down the road I'm hoping to score a referral and get a free wall charger (or maybe find one on Craigslist or ebay - anybody out there...

    Model 3 Charger not turning on with 50 amp plug

    I had my electrician install a nema 14-50 plug to use with the included adapter that came with the model 3. He used a 50 amp breaker and 6/3 wire. After the install, he used a voltage meter on the plug and both sides were reading 120V, so 240V total. It clearly has enough power. However, when I...

    Nema 14-50 on 20A Breaker?

    Hi guys, Need some help. I've gotten two quotes on a NEMA 14-50 install that appear to conflict with each other. One electrician is saying that I can put a 40Amp 14-50 outlet without any upgrades to my panel, the other is saying I can only do 20A with the current load. I have an existing 120V...

    Suspended UMC setup

    My garage is in the basement and if I'm not good about cleaning up the leaves in my trenched driveway then then can clog up the storm drain if it rains hard. Once a year or so I end up with some water in my garage — never fun. After several months of charging via 120V on an extension cord, I...

    Did you use Tesla installer for NEMA?

    Seems like a pretty simple job for qualified electrician to do. Our box has room for new wiring, so I am wondering why I should pay 30% more to use the recommended installer. Anyone "go rogue" and regret it? As always thanks in advance to this responsive community.
