Did your Tesla come with a J1772 adapter or did you have to buy one?

    My P100D did not come with one of these adapters, should it have?

    Yes. It’s in the bag with the UMC and the 2 UMC adapters.

    Yes, it’s part of the UMC package. If you bought it new, I’d ask. Kind of hard afternoon the fact, perhaps.

    It should come in a bag in the under part of your trunk with your home charging adapter.. that's where mine was anyway. It does come with the car, so if you can't find it,I'd call your service center.

    It is also possible that your delivery person placed it in the glovebox for you. My delivery person moved it from the bag to the glovebox, with my knowledge though.

    There is also a nook in the back of the glovebox where it could be stored as well (or at least there used to be - not sure if it is in the newest cars). When I bought my CPO it had one shoved back there as well as one in my UMC bag, so I ended up with two. :)

    It's gone in the newest cars, very irritating to have no good place to put it actually.

    Put it in the center console. Or did they stop including that too?

    If only they stopped, or at least made it optional. I miss the bowling alley, so much more useful.

    On last 3 cars it was in the bag with the charger. On the latest car the bag changed from round to square and the J1772 was in the glove compartment instead (no special nook, just there).

    No, there was no adapter in my car. I called the SC and the original reps and was told that the charger package no longer includes any adapters outside of the tesla "standard". They forwarded me to the parts department to order this "option"..

    I found that spot as well ... fits perfectly and doesn’t rattle. Wish there was a dedicated space for it for all us ChargePoint users!

    Wow. I guess I got mine just in time. I took delivery March 17, 2018 and my car came with adapter.

    That is ridiculous. So the car no longer comes with the adapter for the most common public charging station connector?

    According to this page it is supposed to come with the car: Model S Specifications

    I would elevate that.
