Is anybody charging other vehicles with their Charge Station Pro?

I have a Charge Station Pro on the way to be installed soon. I have a Tesla Model 3 that I want to charge with my charger, but so far it looks like there's no direct path from the Ford (CCS) to Tesla (J1772). Some quick research has found some suuuuper expensive adapters - Almost more expensive than just getting a second charger installed! I was wondering if anybody is charging non-Fords with their Charge Stations and if so, how?

In a similar boat as JerkyChew... was hoping to charge my Model 3 with the CSP when it was installed.

If there is no workaround currently, and people have opted for Tesla Wall Connector, curious what the adaptor is to connect Tesla Wall Connector to F-150 Lightning (and how long it would take for an Lariat ER). Thanks!
You don't have to go with a Tesla wall connector for your Tesla, you can use a third party home charger with the included Tesla adapter. I have a Chargepoint Flex at my previous house that I haven't set up yet. I bought it because you can configure the amperage based on connection (and unknown to me at the time there are ways to set its amperage via software as well) and my old wiring was, shall we say, "suspect". But if wired correctly it will go all the way to 50 amps, which is a pretty good rate for a home-based charger. Mine is currently set at 30 amps which gives me roughly 11-15 mph in my Lariat ER.
Thanks, helpful. Any reason you chose the Chargepoint Flex ($750) over the Tesla Wall Connector ($400)?
Got it. Thanks, will dig into the options. Thank you!
