    The problem is, I'm not in Ticino, and I should know in advance what it is!
    Is it not possible to determine this by the picture?

    So, can I charge with the adapter from Park and charge on the 16plus with 32 A or only with 16A?


    Both documents are empty for my computer

    you will net an adapter for your UMC to charge on 32A. THis adapter was already mentioned. I have a blue 32A single phase pigtail from Tesla, but would need the adapter from park&charge as well.

    I have send an Email to Park and Charge for this adapter and I'm waiting for the answer. I will let you know.

    To charge with 16A you need to plug in a CEE16.
    To charge with 32A you need a P&C adaptercable Mode3 > Mode 1/2. What is at the End of the cable a do not know, you can fix a CEE32A red 5pole female plug

    Is anyone able to open the atachments?

    Found this in P&C OFTRINGEN. Look at the middle Adapter: Is this the CEE16Plus too. Seems to be from BRUSA.

    1) Just as we can get the key: Via their Web-Site Park & Charge
    2) Some sites have locally a key for visitors. You should ring ahead in any case.

    It's a high overhead to pay 140 Sfr for one charge.

    Well.... You are right. But sometimes you do have to feel like an ICE driver!

    But without joking, this is certainly one problem of this system. But you pay 140 CHF for one year. And there are Park and Charge stations on many locations!

    All fair points.

    Can someone explain the adapter cable for 32A? Do
    I need that only in Ticino or everywhere with Park & Charge?

    Does anyone know what it costs?

    Thanks

    Andrew

    I did talk to the responsible ,man here in Switzerland. This adapter is on several places in Switzerland ( about 3 in the German part and about 10 in Ticino ). But so far it is not possible to get it. The reasons are complicated....
    However I'm trying to find a way to get it.

    The situation is kind of frustrating, but there it is....Ifthere are some news, I will post them

    This 16Aplus seems to be really something special. Would enable us to charge with 32A on some parke and charge installations in Switzerland. I think there are about 10 such chargers in Switzerland. I know two of them: Bissone and Göschenen.
    There is a possibility to make an order for this plug. Would someone be interested?

    I've been this weekend in Geneva.

    La Réserve Genève :: Home

    This is a great place. Kind of where the rich and beautiful meet. Lots of superb cars!

    They have a HPC Tesla charger outdoors and at least two red CEE32 sockets with Tesla UMC's in the garage
    There have been two teslas outdoors on the lawn, you can rent them and two other Tesla's in the garage. With my car: 5 Tesla Roadster at one place!

    The only problem with their HPC is: When you get there you certainly would like to stay longer then 3 hours!

    What do they ask you to pay for a charge if you are not staying in their hotel?

    i do not know. but i could imagine if you eat or drink something in their restaurants they would let you charge for free.
    They are next to the Autobahn.
    if you plan to charge here, call them before
