Has Tesla ever supplied J1772 equipment along with its own chargers?

    I've been told that at times Tesla has at times supplied J1772 equipment along with its own dedicated chargers - not sure if this means wall chargers or superchargers.

    Can't find a reference to Tesla doing that on this forum, despite much searching.

    Does anybody know if Tesla has done this?

    Yes in the destination charging program. Tesla will often add a Clipper Creek HCS 60 which is much better than your typical public L2 station.

    Thanks @dhrivnak . Very helpful.

    Is this a common thing for Tesla to do ? Why do they do it? Regulation? Publicity? Accommodate Roadsters? Stopping non-Teslas from using the Tesla charger?

    (My ulterior motive is to see if we can prompt Tesla to do something similar here in Australia!)

    No regulations that required it - but when you're asking a hotel to put in wiring for charging, it's nice for the hotel to be able to accommodate other EVs.

    As mentioned above Tesla does list destination charging stations for Tesla owners at places like Hotels and dining establishments where you might have a dedicated Tesla wall connector installed but most times from the map designations just list the site as having "a Tesla Connector" with up to so many kWh rating, assume these could be J1772 sometimes.

    Here's a Tesla Destination Charger map hopefully zero'd in on Australia for you:

    Find Us | Tesla

    If you click on the gray charging icon it will bring up more detailed info.

    They have built j1772 chargers that other evs can use next to superchargers. Examples are Rancho Cucamonga, Hawthorne, and San Diego

    Tesla supplies a J1772 adapter allowing Teslas to use a J1772, not an adapter allowing a J1772 car to use a Tesla charger, just to clarify.

    Quickchargepower.com was/is developing a Tesla-to-J1772 adapter last I heard.

    They said they were, but they may run into a few unanticipated problems. @hcsharp developed an adapter so that Roadsters could use the destination chargers & it wasn't a slam dunk.

    Thanks @bonnie @SMAlset @gaswalla @Evbwcaer so it looks like the main reason for Tesla to include J1772's with Destination Charger installations is to provide a complete EV charging solution for the property owner, which is somewhat favourable to Tesla !
