I want to have some charging ability when my model 3 gets delivered in a few weeks to Fairbanks Alaska.
I'm told the car will arrive with a charge cable which has a connector-to-car end and presumably a standard 120v wall plug on the other.
Presumably this wall end unplugs from the cable and needs to be replaced by an adapter https://shop.tesla.com/product/gen-2-nema-adapters
I can't figure out which adapter I need.
The "adapter type" column does not match my memory of the package labels at Home Depot.
I was told to install a NEMA 14-50 receptacle but the one that looks most like that is named a 6-50 in the catalog.
Plugs are not compatible by design, so my chances of buying a "looks like it" only to find a form factor mi-match is high.
I am comfortable with working single phase electricity, but these transitions are always tricky.
I would rather buy a connector and cable with naked wires out the end and just hard wire it to my source.
Can this be done?
Thanks in advance for reading this far and thanks again if you can offer some insight into this charge conundrum.
