Our new NEMA L5-15 Gen 2 adapter lets you charge your Tesla Model 3, Model S, Model Y or Model X (with Gen 2 UMC) at NEMA L5-15 twist-locking outlets.
For your safety, this adapter has an internal circuit that monitors the plug temperature and communicates with the car to automatically set the appropriate 12 amp charging current. No need to manually set the current – simply plug it in! Cable length is 12 inches. We use a thicker cable for maximum efficiency and it also is more comfortable to grip onto when connecting and disconnecting it from your Tesla’s mobile connector. Made exclusively by EVSE Adapters.
Note, EVSE Adapters is an independent supplier of Tesla-compatible charging adapters and we are not associated with Tesla in any way.
Which adapter do you need?

If your Tesla came with the Gen 1 UMC, it will not work with this adapter – choose one of the adapters in this category instead. All 2018 and later Tesla vehicles use the Gen 2 UMC and can use this adapter.
