    for every country in Europe Tesla seems to have a different charger for wall outlet (shuko). Instead of buying all these different chargers wouldn't it be much easier to buy a world adapter for wall outlets and plug in the (Dutch) shuko charger?

    yes, but these are normally not so robust, I wouldn’t dare to have my car charging on one of these with 13 amps overnight, because of the risk of overheating the plug.

    Hi,

    It should work, but be careful and keep the current limited to MAX 10 Amps, so there's no melt down of the adapter plug!!
    This kind of plugs are made for using with your phone, laptop, shaver and maybe also for your hairdryer or for ironing, but NOT for charging a car... . Please be careful !!
