Charger for ford and Tesla

Thanks for adding me to the group. I received my lightning in November and picking up my wife’s Tesla on Friday. I have the pro charger installed in my house and was thinking I would be able to charge the Tesla with it. Sounds like this is not the case. Does anyone now what charger I could buy that would do both? I have a 100 amp dedicated breaker for whichever one I will need.

Wait the FCSP can't charge a Tesla even with the Tesla adapter on the J1772 FCSP plug?
It uses a CCS plug, not a J1772 plug. I haven't tested, but I believe the CCS to Tesla adapters utilize the DC contacts instead of the AC contacts. If you dig through threads here, I believe someone got a J1772 extension and removed a bit of plastic so it would plug into the CCS plug, sort of solving the issue.
Crap, I did not know that. Thank you for the clarification. Guess I need to do some more homework as we got a Model Y on order and I have the FCSP already wired into the house for the Lightning.

That said, we may cancel the Model Y order as I got notified I can order a Lyriq dual motor tomorrow morning. We shall see. To that point, do they make CCS to J1772 adapters? That should work for the Lyriq. Wonder if they make CCS to J1772 to Tesla adapters? Plug two adapters on top of each other??!!? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
