Hello Everyone,

Sorry if this was asked before.

I have few questions :)

1. Can you extend the 24 Ft Cable that it comes with ?

2. The Wall Connector will be installed outside, did anyone have weather related issues ?


Thank you

Why not install the Tesla Gen3 Wall Connector where you need it to be able to charge using the provided 24 ft charging cable?

As an alternative to digging a trench and installing conduit, wire underground it may be possible bury underground rated wire covered in cement. The wire would not have to be buried as deeply as when using conduit. No conduit would be required.

I might need longer then 24 ft charging cable, reason why I park two cars in the single driveway .
If you install the Tesla Gen3 Wall Connector outdoors on a post adjacent to the left side of the single vehicle driveway the 24 ft charging cord would reach either the first or second vehicle.

Resurrecting an old post, but sharing this... sec 625.17 of the NEC caps the cable length from EVSE to car at 25'. You might not find much in the way of extensions.

I have my Gen3 charger in my front stoop; so it is outside but is covered. The 24' cable easily reaches to my MYLR, and could reach over to a second car once my wife upgrades to a Tesla. The trick is to get use to backing in so that the charge port is on the correct side close to the Gen3 charger.

My exterior walls have horizontal studs inside them, hence the ugly gray electrical conduit. In a couple years we'll be redoing the siding and will put the wire inside the wall then. See photo below.

Since it is outside, I told the Gen3 charger to only charge my VIN. And I already have numerous security cameras.
