Re: Tesla to J1772 adapter

The Lectron adapter works like a charm once DIP2 in the Tesla HPWC was flipped to the other position (was in position 2, moved to position 1). I donated the Lectron adapter to the Brake Room coffee & bike shop in Belleville, Ontario. I don’t want to have to open up every Tesla HPWC I encounter. ...

Re: 14" Wheels

A 1st gen Honda Insight spare seems to be the go-to for others. They are harder to find though.

Re: Tesla to J1772 adapter

The owners of my fave coffee shop will let me play around with the DIP switches in their HPWC to see it I can get the Lectron unit to work. If I can, and if switching DIP2 from Tesla to J1772 still allows Teslas to charge, I’ll leave the HPWC on J1772 and give the Lectron unit to the coffee shop for...

Re: Tesla to J1772 adapter

My 50A TeslaTap arrived. I went to the nearest Tesla gen II HPWC to test it out. It worked like a dream. I was almost surprised it worked after all the trouble with the Lectron unit!

So, for anybody else looking to use an adapter: go with TeslaTap.

Re: Tesla to J1772 adapter

Update: Lectron doesn’t want their adapter back. I’ll play with the HPWC DIP switches some more to see if I can get it to work.

Re: Tesla to J1772 adapter

Thanks! PM will be sent shortly. Wasserstein, the vendor that sold me the Lectron adapter on amazon.ca, issued me a refund last night. They made no mention of wanting their adapter back, so I may have the opportunity to experiment with it further. I just ordered a 50A TeslaTap direct from the websit...

Re: Tesla to J1772 adapter

That looks like a Tesla Tap. Duosida makes the J1772 handle part. I actually tried opening up a HPWC near me and dialing back the current to below 40A as per Lectron’s instructions. No luck. I also tried 32A, no luck. It took two different-sized Torx bits. Thanks for the info. I am more confident no...

Re: Tesla to J1772 adapter

Thanks Joe. I’m not getting a lot of support from Lectron to help troubleshoot my unit. I have now tried 3 different wall connectors (following their instructions) with no luck. I bought it on amazon and will be returning it. My next thought would be to purchase and try a TeslaTap. I’m glad to hear ...
