With limited adapters available from Tesla (5-15, 14-50 and 6-50 are the only ones I know of available at this time), had anyone made a home made adapter that works?
Today I tried to use something an RV buddy of mine has, which supposedly links two 5-15 outlets (usual US houses) to obtain 240 voltage (which theoretically would half the charge time using a standard 120 volt household outlet).
Here is a link:
Needless to say it didn't work. The Tesla cord had a red light on it instead of green.
I was also interested in this:
However to use this one would need some form of adapter from 14-50 or 6-50 to a 6-15.
I'm just not sure whether the tesla cord can recognize these adapters or extension cords and "shut down" but there needs to be some other ways for us to charge this vehicle than public stations. And the power cord won't reach a dryer deep in a house.
