I've been charging my MS60 with my 240V/40A outlet during the past month. But today, I wanted to experiment by using the 110V adapter and standard 110V outlet. Everything seemed to work OK. As predicted, it was charging very slowly, and the max amperage setting was just 12A. But after about 5 hours of charging, I checked up on it. And I found out that it just stopped charging. Not only that, but when my remote unlocked the car, nothing would turn on inside! The charge port was at its blue setting, and I could not release the charger. YIKES!!!! I figured there was something about the current running from the 110V outlet the Tesla didn't like. I unplugged from the 110V outlet, and after about a minute the MS60 reset itself and everything was back to normal. I immediately went back to the 240V. I wanted to test it in case I was running low on charge while over at a friend's house. I could use their 110V outlet. But from my experience tonight, I will never do that again! Has anybody tried it?
