    Yes, I fully agree it should be.. But I have not seen references to a European CHadeMO adapters yet (on the other hand, maybe I missed some posts on the forum :) )

    I thought superchargers used PLC signaling like the CCS standard. It was previously said Model S just needed a dumb CCS adapter as opposed to CHAdeMO needing an active adapter.

    As I understand it the Supercharger starts as CCS does, but then does additional communication, which is why adapting to CCS should be easy.

    Yes that was my understanding.

    CAN bus has 4 lines. Plus CHAdeMO has additional analogue interlocks.


    Does beg the question as to why Tesla hadn't released a CCS adapter already.

    Also, the UMC/HPWC is just ordinary J1772 signaling. The only difference it Tesla's use of a proprietary physical connector format. There is no electronics in the J1772 adapter; it's just a dumb physical adapter.

    The proof of the pudding is in the eating! De uitkomst zal het leren.

    Oh yes.. I was already at 257 km (hence the +21km) and had been driving for a bit (warm battery?) and I did not stay for too long as I did not need the charge and there were Taxi drivers waiting for me to finish.

    One of these days I hope I can draw the promised 135 kW

    I just wanted to check if actually worked :biggrin:

    CHAdeMO adapters delivering

    En toch zou je als de CHAdeMO lader en 50Kw versie is, 42kW moeten kunnen halen met de Tesla, en ook op 278km. Ik heb in Zevenaar bij 349 km (90%) geladen aan 34kW

    Oh my.. There must be something wrong! Did they mistake me for someone else? And I am not even Dutch :)

    Edit: Just called Tesla and was informed that I am one of the few who has received it so far, but they are rolling it out for sure.
