    TD;LR - discovered a well built L2 charger being sold on ebay and seller provided addl details. Son is purchasing. Often Tesla owners have other electric cars (J1772) vs a Tesla 14-50 direct plug.
    Obviously do your own DD (Due Diligence)

    The SPX Voltec charger died that I purchased about the same times as our 2011 Volt was given to our son for his 2012 Volt. This lasted perhaps longer than I suspected based on reviews and other threads. The fuses were checked and were OK so it was not that simple fix. OpenEVSE kit was one option this new option seemed better.

    Several months ago I stayed at an AirBNB that had a charger I had not seen before. I stayed because it had a Volt in one of the pictures on the AirBNB site ads and after contacting the owner he said I could park and charge inside the attached building. The L2 J1772 charger worked well for our needs (Driving Tesla X in eastern TN).

    Here is the charger on ebay from the Georgia seller. I looked closely at the writing on the wires and found them/spec online. Seller answered my questions in reasonable detail. Wanted to pass this along.

    This is exactly how much they should cost. They are not that complicated or special. It's a glorified GFCI outlet, with some signalling to communicate how much current the vehicle can draw.

    Kudos to this eBay seller for being disruptive.
