Dryer Buddy Plus AUTO (10-30)

I purchased earlier this year so I can piggy back off my dryer in the garage to charge my car. This one is fully automated so someone can start the dryer and it'll stop charging the car so you don't trip the breaker. I also upgraded to include a 35' cord so you can place the outlet at a different location. The display will tell you how much kWh it has used so this will help anyone who shares utilities to calculate how much they've used to charge the car.

There's nothing wrong with it, I moved to a new home that has car charging outlet already setup.

This was my original order...

1x Upgrade pak for Dryer Buddy™ on order (waiting for build) to remote EVSE outlet - Same as original order / 3-prong (example: NEMA 10-30, 10-50, 6-30, 6-50, L6-30) / 35' for $119.79 each
1x Dryer Buddy™ Plus AUTO #1 Custom 30A 2-way switcher, 5' 10-30 plug cable (before 1996) to two 10-30 outlets with optional kWh/Watt/Volt/Amp meter - with kWh meter for $362.59 each

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.

Did you sell it? I am curious, what does the Tesla do when the dryer buddy cuts the power to the mobile connector. Doesn't the mobile connector then complain about a fault and cause an alert on your phone, among other things? Do you have to turn that off (thus not getting other alerts?)
