    Think that this stuff has nothing to do with TESLA. They are only using the name of TESLA to advertize them. It's what we call in Roman slang "na sola".
    Translation in meaning "a lemon" (hope to have used the right word in English) :smile:

    These are well pumps made by an Italian company that was also named Tesla.

    Yeah, I didn't once think these were from the California Tesla Motors we know. I just find it mildly amusing when we see other products sharing the Tesla name.

    There are virtually thousands of companies sharing the name. Nowadays everyone likes to have their own brand called Tesla :)
