Looks like Tesla is out of 14-50 adaptors right now in my area. I'm taking delivery Tuesday and wanted to try out the new 14-50 plug I added to my cabin in Big Bear.

Are there are good third party 14-50 adaptors or better to wait til they are back on stock and buy official Tesla?

NEMA 14-50 Adapter for Tesla Model S/X/3 Gen 2 – EVSE Adapters

If you need a NEMA 14-50 extension cord they have those as well in assorted lengths.

They work great, no problems with my S. I would also recommend picking up an assortment of adapters to cover your bases.

Post it up on the for sale section that you want to buy one. Someone will most likely sell you theirs. Lots of people dont use them when they use to come with the car.

Thanks, I thought the 3 came with a lot of different adapters but I will definitely look to see exactly what I might be missing still


Not any more, they come with almost nothing these days. No floor mats, no iphone charger cables, no additional charger adapters, etc etc.

... but they're cheaper, as far as I can tell. A multicoat white Model 3 with FSD for $44,990? Adding a modest 3rd party subwoofer to the "partial premium" can be done for ~ $100. And people are still buying plastic ICE SUVs with a pig nose?

Most knock offs are cheaper. But in the case of Tesla, they are much more expensive.

Charging able adapters $35 Vs 85
Wall connector $500 Vs $800+ for same amperage

That's because Tesla's prices are actually extremely reasonable. I don't think they're actually making much in the way of a profit on their charging accessories.

The third party accessories are probably hand made, and extremely low volume. $85 is not far off what it would cost for you to make these parts, after factoring in tooling costs for the custom connector Tesla uses for the UMC.

Thought I'd through out an alternative...buy the 6-50 adapter, and change your 14-50 outlet to a 6-50 outlet. You already have the wiring for it since 6-50 doesn't use the neutral line...and Tesla doesn't either.

I just installed the 14-50 a week ago in my cabin- think I'll leave it for now- ha!
