Our new NEMA 6-15 Gen 2 adapter lets you charge your Tesla Model 3 or Model Y (or Model S or Model X with Gen 2 UMC) at NEMA 6-15 outlets. These types of outlets are sometimes found in motels, used for the room air conditioner. Note, this adapter will also work at most NEMA 6-20 outlets, but will not exceed 12 amps.
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 vehicle’s mobile connector. Made exclusively by EVSE Adapters.
