    I read an article that the official 10-30 adapter was recalled early Dec 2016 and that a replacement would be sent to affected Tesla owners. If true, will the 10-30 recall replacement adapter ever be available for purchase. I believe the Tesla adapter informed the car that it should only draw 24A; whereas, using some non-official adapters requires the owner to dial down the current draw to 24A. Does anyone know exactly how the (formerly available/recall replacement 10-30 adapters) informed the car not to exceed 24A?

    NOTE: I tried to post the above on the website and the SPAM filter rejected the post???

    Thanks Very Much in Advance!!!
    Regards, Ron

    Yeah, each Tesla adapter has a small resistor inside it. The UMC checks that resistor value. Each resistor size corresponds to a different current value, which the UMC reports to the car. I don't remember what the table of values is, but it's been posted on this forum a couple of times.
