More important is making sure that the outlet you have is correctly installed - and that means, for example, torquing the screws that clamp the wires to the manufacturer specs. My uninformed opinion is that the cheap outlets are much less tolerant of under- or over-torquing the clamp screws than the more expensive outlets, and most of the melting and smoke issues come from people / electricians who don't understand this. A bad connection creates resistance, which creates heat, which causes melty plastic bits.I saw enough melted Leviton 240V outlets used for EV charging to upgrade to a Hubbell. The Home Depot Leviton is like $3 and the quality difference is dramatic. I believe Tesla has heat sensors in their plugs though so it would be very unlikely to melt, but considering the plug is in my attached garage the peace of mind of having a quality outlet is worth it. You can find lots of horror stories just on these forums alone.
