    well I'm trying to figure out if the M-F Type-II to Type-II cable is the right cable for EU Model S to charge at the various Type-II charging stations in EU.

    Basically I'm planning on buying this one:
    Power Cords, PDUs and Shore Power Connections

    It's a male-to-female cable. What's the Model S port (M/F?).

    The Tesla plug is slightly different, so that it will NOT plug into a standard Type 2 port / receptacle.

    Erm, we are talking about the EU car, right? From what I've understood the EU car has a Type-II connector and that's one of the reasons Tesla isn't selling a HPWC because any standard Type-II capable EV box will work. The only part I want clarified is wether the car has a male or female connector :) According to the website where I'm planning to buy the car side connector of the cable is female meaning that the cars connector has to be male. Just confirming it here...

    yes, in Europe you need a type 2 to type 2 male female cable and occasionally in France an other one (type 2 to Type 3 cable) for type 3 charging station common in France.
