...this is gonna be a loooong month!
Where did you get the logo plate? Cooolio!
Actually just a sticker from Amazon.
Well, that was a pathetically quick sale. Wish my car would arrive that quickly!
Probably the cheapest thing I'll ever buy for my Tesla.
Carrerascott, I just checked Amazon and they are out of stock. How many did you buy?:wink:
Sorry guys, I jumped on that and snagged 2 of the 10 available, the rest must've gone quickly after that.
Wow it said 10 in stock before I posted. Too bad I don't get a commission!
Can't you just print it
Did you wire with 3 or 4 wires?
Mine was just installed today with 3 wires (no ground).
I am having him come back and change to a 4 wire system. Does that sound correct?
If it's a NEMA 14-50 the electrician should have know how to install it properly which is 4 wires if I have that correct. If you are getting a HPWC, the will install 3 wires and a 6-50 outlet for you to use until the HPWC comes.
If you get a NEMA 14-50 outlet (like the one pictured earlier in this thread) you need 4 wires. 2 hot, 1 neutral, 1 ground. If you get a NEMA 6-50 (welding outlet) you only need 3 wires. 2 hot, 1 ground (Model S doesn't need/use a neutral). If you are wiring a HPWC (or other EVSE) you only need 3 wires. 2 hot, 1 ground (they don't need/use neutral).
Yes 4 wires... 2 hot 1 neutral 1 ground. Will also be installing the HPWC when it comes in (but leave the NEMA 14-50 as a backup in case the HPWC ever fails.
Thanks for the replies. I think he just made a mistake. I am not getting the HPWC.
My electrician is returning to run the proper line.
Great. Make sure he installed it with the ground plug on top too like in the first post for this thread.
Mine was put in yesterday. 4 wires ground plug on top. They also ran a 120V line so I now have some additional power in that corner of the garage.
Those stickers are back in stock on Amazon, fyi.
Snagged one. Thanks! Wonder if there's some place on the car itself where this might look cool?!
Now, Amazon wants me to buy a center console and Elon's biography!
