High power charger on back order

High power charger on back order

Have been waiting anxiously for months for my car to arrive only to find out that the twin charger I ordered is on back order. That's fine but Teslas solution is for me to get a nema 650 installed in the meantime. I'm o.k. With that but they only offer a $200 credit. Not nearly enough to cover the expense of that. Very unfair.

As was mentioned elsewhere, the connections to the 6-50 and HWPC are in common, the same. Only a swap of wall units will be necessary.

$200 sounds more than fair to me.

BTW It's likely that it's the High Power Wall Charger that's backordered, not the Twin Charger which gets installed in the car itself.

Yes, agreed. And it's called a High Power Wall Connector. It does not do any kind of charging - that's done by the onboard chargers. See http://www.teslamotors.com/charging#/highpower
