I'm looking to get a new/second mobile connector to use as a semi-permanent EVSE for my Tesla (I rent, so can't install the Wall Connector, but do have a NEMA14-50 outlet available), and I'm confused by the pricing of the "Corded Mobile Connector" at $520 vs. the "Gen 2 Mobile Connector Bundle" at $300. The latter seems to be superior (has interchangeable cord ends), but is less than 60% of the price?
Am I missing something? Why would anyone buy the "Corded Mobile Connector"?
There's probably some durability advantage to having the fixed/permanent cord attached to the "Corded Mobile Connector", but does that outweigh the flexibility and lower cost of the "Gen 2 Mobile Connector Bundle"? Does the "Corded Mobile Connector" have something more included that's not obvious based on the information on the Tesla web store?
