    Places you need this : J1772 Extension Cord

    Pacific Guardian Center
    Kahala Mall (unless you drive against traffic)

    Works great.

    30 Amp Extension Cord

    Anyone else have an extension cord? J1772 Extension Cord (Blue car on the website is mine)

    Pacific Guardian Center installed the charger in a place that can only be pulled into. So, made sense to buy this : J1772 Extension Cord

    Kahala Mall as well, unless you are willing to drive against traffic, you'll need this cord.

    ~$300

    In my old car, $0.30 / mile, I would have paid for it in 100 miles.

    Being that Tesla is about $0.10 / mile, 3,000 miles charged @ work , I break even.

    Thanks HawaiiBee...never knew there was an extension cord. Add Mililani Town Center to the list where you need this. I rarely charge at a public charging station since they're usually leaf'd and I haven't had the need too unless I go around the island, but would be nice to not have to back into the stall.

    thanks, didn't read the message between post (changes pages too fast..)

    Leaf'd lol.

    We have a theory that the leafs in our building call each other to busy out the stall. We see them on the street queued up.

    But they do need it, I had one owner call me asking to use the stall since she had range anxiety. So I moved.

    Range anxiety in Hawaii... That sort of like people who always gas up at 1/2 tank?

    In a Leaf, happens pretty easily. I've easily taken it down to less than 5 miles showing on the GOM and on one occasion, down to 0. Even in Hawaii. :)

    Range anxiety in Hawaii is absolutely possible. I've gotten below 25 miles of range left on more than one occasion with my P85, and I even sat on chargers during the day when possible. We may be islands, but we go nowhere fast! :tongue:

    At Kahala, I usually find there's enough room to come down the row the right way and back into the stall.

    $235 for a cable, although high quality, seems like a pretty high price to pay, just in my opinion.
