    Doesn't Tesla sell these? They at least sold them at some point.

    If you can buy a UMC somewhere you can build one yourself. That's how I did it three years ago. You need the special Roadster connector.

    Easiest route is to buy a type 2 to type 1 cable and add a "can" adaptor to that. Maybe not the cheapest route, but easy to get with no modifications needed.

    I agree. that's what I also did.
    this solution allows you to charge at any type2 station and also at tethered type1 stations

    I also got myself a type 2 male to type 1 adapter, that allows me to pull 60 amps from those public 43kw stations with tetheret type 2 cable. Not quite legal (extention/adapters not legal to use on type 2) but it does makes long trips possible.
