There are a few kinds of Tesla charger. If you're looking at big red and white "tombstones" at the edge of a lot somewhere, those are Superchargers, and no adapter is going to help you - they only deliver high voltage DC directly to the battery, and only when authenticated to by a Tesla through digital communication, including VIN.Has anyone used the adapter to charge on a Tesla charger ??
Supposedly the guy that was going to set up that kickstarter went back to the drawing board and is coming out with an improved version. New kickstarter should start in the coming months. It would allow any EV to use a non-Supercharger Tesla station...like the destination chargers.
I've been told that when discussing the installation with the site owner, Tesla is willing to buy a J1772 EVSE (Clipper Creek) for every two HPWCs and install them all if the site owner wishes. I think about half of the locations in the Destination network have the J1772 EVSEs.I read that Tesla destination chargers had a standard J1772 installed next to it. Not the case?
Back to the drawing board? It's just a pass-through. Curious if anyone knows the Tesla inlet supplier? Short of going to a junkyard and ripping one off a wrecked car, I don't know how to buy an Telsa inlet. I wouldn't mind making an adapter myself, just to prove the point.Supposedly the guy that was going to set up that kickstarter went back to the drawing board and is coming out with an improved version.
I think this search does the trick; http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odk...570.l1313&_nkw=1772+to+tesla+adapter&_sacat=0
The crazy part is that most of those listings are for more than Tesla will charge you for a brand new one.Those adapters are to allow Teslas to connect to standard J1772 chargers. We're looking for an adapter that goes the other way. As another posted mentioned, it's just a simple pass-through, but no one has released one that I've seen.
