Hmmm. Looks like the plug is not interchangeable... 14-50 only?
I think it may be a bit early to jump to that conclusion. Perhaps they are going with a different type of adapter for this one. Maybe something the 14-50 plugs into or one that slides off making it smaller than the older ones.
Look real close at the original on Instagram. There looks to be some type of ring in front of the outlet.
the press kit says it comes with 14-50 and 5-15 adapters
That looks like the "non-UMC" (the Mobile Connector with a molded plug for 14-50.). Tesla has been selling that for a while now but I've never heard of anyone using one.
Model S/X Corded Mobile Connector
If that is the new UMC will you be able to use the NEMA 14-30 and other NEMA adapters?
Indeed - it would be better to get the bundle with the extra plug options
Steve posted a video of it
We don't know. Tesla just says that it comes with the 14-50 and the 5-15 NEMA adapters. It doesn't say anything about other available adapters.
So it opens when you click a button on connector which is awesome but you have to use phone app to close it ? Why can't a second press of connector close it? Something not right with that logic.
Like the S&X it will probably close on by itself after a few seconds of not getting anything plugged in to it...
Tesla is selling it on their shops page: Model S/X Corded Mobile Connector along with the previous version. It's $30 cheaper. I wonder if you can opt for the interchangeable version?
Model 3 onboard chargers are 32 amp base and 40 amp for long range. Nothing more in the US than a Nema 14-50 needed.
Rumor has it the long range charger is actually 48 amps. (You just can't go above 40 amps with what is included with the car, you have to use a HPWC or high-amp J1772 EVSE.)
Source? Not trying to call you out. I'd just like to read about this.
I've never actually used the 14-50 adapter with my UMC... 10-30, 14-30, and 5-15? Yes.
there's a whole thread on this:
Long range 3 has 48A charger!
I saw it in this post where someone claims to have gotten an email from the Tesla charging team with those details: Long range 3 has 48A charger!
