Prime Day is coming up on June 25th. There are several mobile EVSEs sold through amazon. Some 40A models go for ~$320 I'm hoping for a sale.

Yea that looks like a good alternative to a Tesla Gen 2 Corded mobile charger($275 but OOS) + 14-50($45). Thanks for this!

I'd stay away from the Tesla chargers. Maybe i've been unlucky, but they are shipping my second replacement. I wish now I'd of gotten a 220V outlet installed in my garage and spent $50 on an adapter. Hopefully this third one will be the charm.

I have settled to have a Nema 14-50 installed outside my garage and use my adapter that came with the car. My Gen 2 charger is working just fine inside the the garage. What exactly went wrong on the first 2?

It was getting hot when charging above 38amps. There was a firmware update, that helped some, but even though I lowered the charge amps to 35, it was still getting pretty warm to the touch, almost hot. They sent a replacement, this one, and everything was fine until a month ago when it just stopped. I'll never use the "smart" charging feature again either. I'm going to get a NEMA 14-50 outlet installed next to the charger, just in case.
