NEMA 5-20 Adapter for Tesla Model S/X/3 Gen 2
Our new NEMA 5-20 Gen 2 adapter lets you charge your Tesla Model 3 (or Model S or X with Gen 2 UMC) at NEMA 5-20 outlets. The NEMA 5-20 is a higher amperage version of the standard 120V wall outlet, and typically has a T-shaped slot on one side to accommodate both NEMA 5-20 and the more common NEMA 5-15 plugs.
For your safety, this adapter has an internal circuit that monitors the plug temperature and communicates with the car to automatically set the appropriate 16 amp charging current. No need to manually set the current - simply plug it in!
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 collection instead. All 2018 and later Tesla vehicles use the Gen 2 UMC and can use this adapter.
