Gen 3 wall connector Ireland

I have a gen 3 and no complaints, it's minor but the charge port button is good and makes charging more seamless, and makes the difference for technophobes...

Ok by means of an update, Tesla have updated their Irish store site now to differentiate between the Gen 2 and Gen 3 Wall Chargers, with a very slight increase in price but currently the gen 3 is out of stock, I expect that they are trying to flog their gen 2’s first!

the benefits of gen 3 are
1) more Electrical safety built-in which should mean a reduced installation cost
2) future proofing by allowing over the air updates, potential to integrate with their power wall solar solution in the future.
3) thinner cable making it easier to wrap around for storing
4) cable and head are more flexible
5) can automatically open your car charger cap by pressing a button on the adapter head rather than having to open via your phone app or via the car touchscreen

the downside of the gen 3 is
1) the longer cable length has reduced from 24feet (7.3m) to 18feet (5.5m), the smaller cable length option remains the same at 8.5feet (2.6m)

Good to know, thanks Teddy, just wondering did you have the gen 1 or 2 before it in order to compare it in a real world example?
No it's my first one.

Are you sure the gen 2 doesn't have the charge port button?

Anyways I'd hate buying old tech when the new one is out, I had to wait a month for it to come into stock etc and used the 12amp charger in the meantime
