    Can one of my northern neighbors help me out?

    I'd like to buy one of these adapters that are only sold in Home Depot in Canada.

    I can reciprocate by shipping you something from my local Tesla store without the need for high shipping costs; frunk net, anyone?

    Unfortunately, I don't know the price and may change my mind if it's priced ridiculously high.

    curious why you 'need' that adapter? If you drop the amps of the 14-50 down all the way it is lower than 1 Kw ( I guess you can't super slow trickle though)

    I don't really "need" it, but it would be nice to have.

    The only plug near my car is the NEMA 14-50 that I use for charging. It would be nice to be able to step this down to a normal 110v occasionally to plug in a vacuum cleaner.

    Its 32.92 + taxes (about 15%).

    They have 8 at my local Home Depot.

    Let me know if you want one.

    ahh yes. I added a 120v outlet (finally) to the front of my house when I put in my 14-50.
    why not just add a 120 outlet, unless aesthetics would be ruined

    Just Lazy. I'll probably eventually get around to it.
