Curious if anyone has bought this NEW! Tesla Extension Cord – EVSE Adapters. It looks pretty cool, but haven't seen one review. Trying to plan my adapter set for the car and seems maybe just using this and adapters with the mobile connector would work best. One of the thoughts about going this route is I'm afraid of needing multiple extension cords because 14-50, 6-50, tt30, etc don't all seem to easily be converted or would need a nest of converters to use with a single extension cable. I'd like to be able to charge at camp sites and the occasional dryer at a friends house.

There's a standard warning from everyone on this forum about how your manual says to not use extension cords with your Tesla. This is because of connections, wire gauge, and the potential for error.

With all of that said, Evse adapters makes some of the best stuff around. If you need something like this, they are definitely the place to go.

This is an extension cord that extends the reach of the Tesla charging cable. Each Tesla Extension cord is built to order. The standard lengths are 19' (32A rated), 20' (50A rated) and 50' (50A rated) Custom lengths are available. Prices start at $299 US. The Tesla Extension cord has a female Tesla charging connector on one end and a male Tesla charging connector on the other end that plugs into the Tesla vehicle's charging port. The Tesla Extension cable can be used with either the Tesla Mobile Connector or the Tesla Wall Connector. The Tesla Extension cord is not compatible with the Tesla Supercharger charging station.

If you need a 20 foot extension cord for home, you're probably better off paying an electrician to put the charger where it can reach.

A Model 3 can charge about 48A 240V - that is a lot of electricity. the fewer connections it goes through as opposed to direct wiring, the better.

I would not use an extension cord for daily charging.
However on trips you may need to use one. For continuous use the max you should set the current (if it isn't automatically set) is 80% of rated but to be able to not worry and sleep well at night I suggest setting things another 10-20% lower. Eg. if you are using a 30a extension cord the max continuous draw is 24a so due to the extra connections and possible increased resistance set your current to ~18a. It is still way way faster than a NEMA 5-15.
