    Got my M3 today.
    Got home and got this solution for now for charging.

    I call it a-bucket-of-cable mounting solution. It's hooked up to a wall charger on the other side of garage for now.

    I hope this is not a new low for tesla owners IMG_7402.jpg

    I don't have a Tesla yet, but I assume that thing will get very hot while charging. Make sure to check the temp and see if the bucket is melting after a long charge session.

    doesn’t get too hot if it’s in the open.

    Still wise to check as a coil will hold more heat.

    the UMC gets warm but not too warm to touch. if it doesn't scald my hand its not going to melt a bucket.

    i honestly love the ingenuity.
