    It is Tuesday. Time for a bit of rumour mongering.

    Is anyone else wondering why it is taking Tesla so long to come out with the 3 phase 32A and single phase 80A high power wall connectors for Mennekes Type II Europe/Asia? We don't even have the proper cable hanger yet! (although some enterprising chap in China has worked around that last problem for us - ÌØ˹À­ Tesla ³äµçÆ÷ Ö§¼Ü ¹Ò¼þ ¹Ò¼Ü ÌØ˹À­Öйú³µÖ÷רÓÃ-ÌÔ±¦Íø).

    Three phase means simply changing the breaker from 1 to 3 phase. 40A->80A is just higher-rated components. So, why so long? Approval process? Time to focus and get it done?

    Or, something better?
