Charger for ford and Tesla

1708 Views 17 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Patrick johnson
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.

Welcome to the forum, @Cabntguy56!

I assume the problem you're looking to solve is about the shape of the connector (Tesla's proprietary plug is different from the J1172 connector everyone else uses), but let me know if I've got that wrong.
I've never spent any real time with a Tesla, but I suspect you just need something like this -- an adapter that will go on the Level 2 charger and fit your wife's Tesla - https://shop.tesla.com/product/sae-j1772-charging-adapter

That said, there's got to be someone here with the same two car fleet as you, so hopefully someone can hop in with some specific advice on how they solved the problem.

Off-topic questions: What model of Tesla are you getting, and how do you like the Lightning?
