The service guy is wrong. If your's is truly new, then you have a gen 2 UMC and that maxes out at 32 amps.Ok Thanks, learned that in this forum. Funny that a service guy in Tesla Service Center told me today that it should hit 40a, and something is wrong with my set up.
You will have to get a -
- Gen1UMC (40a max)
- HPWC (80a max, direct wired)
- corded UMC (40a max) - Model S/X Corded Mobile Connector
to charge at greater than 32a.
The problem is that it is legal to wire an outlet for 40a, but put a 50a breaker on it... because there are no 40a breakers.
It also appears that they downsized the main cable in the Gen2 UMC for lighter weight and the redesigned the adaptors for more robustness (and more options).
It certainly doesn't take 10 minutes to ramp up to full charge rate--generally just about 30 seconds to a minute. But yes, that picture must be just after plugging in. Notice how the setting target is supposed to be 32, but it has only gotten up to 27 out of 32?Hmmm--my Clipper Creek charger charges at 32 amps as well but charge rate is 20-22 M/H. Yours is charing only at 10 M/H and battery is only half charged--something wrong--unless you took the pic right after connecting--It does take about 10 minutes to ramp up to full charge rate.
I get what you are trying to say, but most people won't because you used the wrong term. Buying an "adapter" won't give this person 40A charging. They already have a 14-50 adapter for their UMC. What you are probably referring to is the "corded mobile connector", that Tesla sells for $520.If you want to always carry a UMC in the car for emergencies (like a spare tire or the tire pump/tire repair kit), then purchasing Tesla's 14-50 adapter and leaving it permanently connected would give you 40A charging.
OP acknowledged several on and off topic responses, and this thread was as good as closed on 4/16. It's the posters in May that you should be getting on for not reading the thread before replying.Am I the only person that did research before buying a $100k car? haha. As stated above, the UMC Gen 2 (shipping with all new Teslas and the Model 3) has a max power of 32A.
The owners manual is in your MyTesla acct. I know I read every guide when I bought my car...
