Need suggestions on charging install.

Thanks everyone. Some really helpful advice. I think I've decided that I'm going to do both. I'll install the Tesla wall charger and have them install a 240V. Probably connect the Tesla to the 240V outlet, since I know I can't use the Tesla charger and the 240V at the same time. Will probably be handy to have a 240V in the garage for other things (ie. heater, plug-in lawnmowers, etc...).

Does anyone have any recommendations on adapters to use at non-tesla charging stations? I assume, there are adapters that convert non-Tesla standard to Tesla.

The car comes with one adapter J1772 to Tesla. The only other official adapter is the ChAdaMO to Tesla adapter. There are rumors of a CCS to Tesla adapter from Korea but I doubt it.

Thanks all. I returned my Tesla charger, and just had a guy install a 50A 240V. After reading more about everything, the Tesla charger just didn't seem worth it, as a 50A 240V charges fast enough. Now I just need to wait for the car.

Hopefully this thread helps others that come along the journey!
