    I was just checking to see if anything had been added to the Model S accessories, and lo and behold you can buy another UMC for $750:

    Shop Tesla Gear MODEL S MOBILE CONNECTOR BUNDLE

    Debating on when I should get this, because it would be handy to have.

    Price went up... I paid $500 for mine, but only got the 14-50 connector and no bag.

    I wish I would have ordered one earlier, I had every plan on doing it back in Jan but slipped my mind. Now with the extra $250 I might just see if I can continue living with out it. tbh I would just be happy if I could get my J1772 adapter sometime this year :smile:

    Interesting they would add it now. I ordered one at the beginning of March and was told not to expect it for a month and a half when I called to find out what the status of my order was.

    You can always order the HPWC, for $1,200 (in a month or two, when they put it on the web store). $450 more, but comes with a 25' vs 18' cable, and is 80A capable (if you opt for the dual chargers). It's actually not much more than building a 30A J-1772 OpenEVSE, which will cost you about $450-500, but max amperage you can get is 24A (or 30A if you build it with larger than normal wiring etc). $750 is not a bad price, really for 40A capable EVSE.

    It's vanished off the site again. I'm also considering a spare, just so that I can leave one permanently hanging in the garage.

    We leave our cord hanging from the garage and it works out very well.

    I would, however, also like to have a cord in the car (just in case) - although have never had to charge anywhere but home, yet.

    Rather, a J1772 adapter is included in the price of the car and is provided. However, there have been some instances where the J1772 adapter was on the due bill as they weren't available at time of delivery. Since I will be heavily dependent on the J1772 adapter, I ordered a second one as a spare a couple weeks back and received it.

    Yes I just have yet to receive mine. Luckily I have not had a need for one yet.

    I recently had my UMC replaced. I was told that a LOT of UMCs were going back to Tesla, being refurbished and sent back out. I hope for that price you're getting a new unit and not a refurb. Sure, same warranty and such, but still...

    Manufacturers have to disclose that a product is refurbished when selling it. Tesla can use refurbished parts for warranty repair and exchange however.

    Looks as if the price was recently changed. Would purchase a refurbished one if the price was half :biggrin:

    Even $500 is outrageous for a glorified extension cord.

    but isn't UMC just an extension cable ? as S carries onboard charger.
    unlike most J1772 OpenEVSE, that are actually a charger.
