    And yet? Apple will change the cord again before your car arrives. My empathy.

    How do you know that these won't simply come with the Model 3 already?

    Nothing wrong with having a spare. Looks like a generally useful cable to have anyways.

    Besides, I just wanted to get a package from Tesla.

    It was excellent clickbait.

    But wait, isn't that a usb-lightning cable? Why on earth would anyone buy one from Tesla when you can get 3 for $10 on amazon and there's a bin of them at just about every retail checkout?

    Do you actually need to charge your iPhone often enough to need a car charger anymore?

    When I first switched over to smartphones I had a droid charge (ironically named) with such crappy battery life that I pretty well left it on a charger all day. The iPhone I charge at night and usually I don't ever see it drop below 50%.

    I was wondering about ordering one of those - is it Apple certified.
    Just looking on Amazon, the price is about right, so may as well get the Tesla one

    It looks like it is designed to fit the drop in tray so I expect the L shaped connector fits into some clip so that it is easy to push the phone in/out.
    Some generic cable probably doesn't fit the tray correctly.

    Now that I own the cable, they should bump up my order priority, right ? :confused:

    Do you know if the charging cable for the Model 3 (USB C) will work in the Model S/X?
