    Received the Tesla CHAdeMO adapter on Friday and showed it off at the meet on Sunday.
    I have just returned from Tritium in Brisbane where I tested same by connecting to one of their Veefil fast DC chargers.
    Battery was nearly full; it charged at (if memory serves) 146 KM/H.

    CHArge de (while) MObile - also sounds like Japanese for a 'cup of tea' meaning it doesn't take long.
    Dreadful name.

    Goodness - who came up with THAT??

    "Mobile Charger" sounds much better.

    Well, CHA or pronounced "sha" means "tea" in Portuguese. Not that there is any connection. The word "chai" comes from the same Latin root.

    Hi 359,

    Ordered mine through Tesla Sydney. Very nice product. Cost is A$550, includes tax and delivery by Toll.

    Thanks @RBR this isn't available in Hong Kong yet so might consider getting it either from Australia or Europe if sales in HK can't help!
