    Hi all, seeking your advice here please as I can't seem to find the answer in the forums here. What charging cables come with the Model S? Presumably I'll get a cable to plug into the Tesla chargers and I'll get one for carparks but what type is it as there are so many different standards? I don't have charging facilities in my car park and plan to use the Supercharger in the mall next to me and park in Central either at Star Ferry or Cheung Kong Centre. Would you recommend I buy any extra cables from Tesla do you think? And do I need to order the dual charging option too?

    Many thanks for your advice in advance.

    Tesla's website shows the cable and adapters that come with the Model S. See Charging | Tesla Motors Watch the video on that page.
    You do not need to buy a cable to connect to a Tesla Supercharger.
    There is a thread on whether or not to buy one or two onboard chargers. It seems to be an endless debate. Search the forums.

    Thanks ecarfan. This is helpful but I'm looking for more HK specific advice particularly in respect of the car parks I'll be using as I don't whether I need further adapters for the j1772 cable in Hong Kong. Dual charging may be different for a place like HK compared to US too. Thanks anyway

    Hi, what do you have in terms of charing facilities in Cheung Kong Centre? I believe it will help if you can find out what do they have in place first.
