    Being a new Tesla owner, I've now realized that most of the fast charging in Quebec is done through CHAdeMO, where we're taking a road trip to this week. Does anyone around the GTA have a CHAdeMO adapter that they would be willing to loan out to us for a week?

    Many thanks. :)

    I have one that I've loaned in the past but I'm on a big road trip to PEI at the moment.

    If you think you'll be doing much travel in Quebec, I'd suggest purchasing one. They're worth it.

    Yep, realizing that now. Problem is we leave on Wednesday and I just called Oakville Service and it's on backorder until next week. Been trying to reach Toronto but nobody is answering the phones there. Will keep trying.

    Thanks, the road trip sounds fun!

    I'd happily lend you mine but I'm not back from holidays until Wednesday evening.

    I would've lent you mine, but I'm heading to Ottawa on Saturday.

    Don't forget that you have the Montréal store as a 3rd option.

    The Club Tesla QC has two or three that members can borrow for up to two weeks per year (free with refundable deposit) It might be a bit short notice to join (dues $40/yr) and arrange for pick-up, though.

    If you stop specifically at the Roulez Electrique CHAdeMO in Trois-Rivieres during business hours they can provide an adapter for the length of your recharge there.

    Ended up picking one up from the Toronto dealership, as they had a few of them in stock. It was great help in Quebec City at a fast charger, to get us that extra top-up to get up into the mountains.

    And, on the way back I ran into iKhalid in Kingston! Nice guy :)

    I am going to need CHAdeMO adapter for my New York trip from Toronto. I called Tesla Oakville and they said it is back ordered.
    If anybody has available and can lend me for a week (May 5 to May 11).
    Thanks.

    Did you check with @rypalmer? He has it listed on the map I mentioned above in Toronto.

    I checked my calendar and unfortunately cannot accommodate a loan this time. Sorry!

    I'm doing the same trip (Toronto to New York) in June. Do we really need a CHAdeMo adaptor? I didn't think of that. Let me know how your trip goes!

    I also question why you would need a CHAdeMo adapter as there are lots of SCs along the Interstates that you would take.

    Thanks everybody, I found one from one fellow Tesla Motor club member. He happily lend me the CHAdeMo adapter today.
    It's not that you really need it, but as backup also.
    Phil the North, I will definitely let you know about the trip.
    Thanks.
