We use ChargePoint Home Flex 50a … it is ultra portable.

Good job. Tesla had a plug-in wall connector for a year (~2019) but I guess it didn’t sell. Some people turn their hard-wired Tesla (Gen 2; maybe Hen 3?) wall connector into a plug-in. I did that. The 40-amp maximum on a NEMA 14-50 receptacle is more than adequate for overnight charging (Model X). In fact, I have car set for 32amps max.

I do notice that the better aftermarket wall connectors are no cheaper than the Tesla model ($500); often more.

...Tesla (Gen 2; maybe Hen 3?) wall connector...

There is also a "Rooster 3" connector, but in this case I meant the Generation 3 device.

Also, I updated Post #1 with a Note 7 about the Tesla Gen 2 J1772 Wall Connector, now for sale on the Tesla Charging website.

Be aware of recent (as of 4/28/22) lowered prices on Tesla charging equipment:
  • Gen 3 Wall Connector is now $400.
  • Gen 2 Mobile Connector bundle (connector, NEMA 5-15 and 14-50 plug-adapters, case) is now just $200 (was $315).
  • Corded Mobile Connector (w/permanent NEMA 14-50 plug) is now (only) $200.
Sadly, the Gen 2 Mobile Connector bundle is no longer included at no extra charge with new cars. Also, the two mobile connectors remain "out of stock" for the time being.

Lastly, note a previous price reduction on the Tesla website down to $50 for the SAE J1772 Charging Adapter. However, this adapter is, I believe, still included with new car delivery.

I understand why the change was made, but sometimes only using math to make decisions misses the point. Hopefully, they will reverse this decision.
