I took delivery of my 2022 Lightning and as I’m going through the included items I found an adapter to charge Teslas. Interesting find. If I find any dead Teslas I’ll let my Ford Lightning come to the rescue. Also included was an adapter to help with all Ford mobile chargers. I guess Ford wants us owners to start a National Mobile Charging Network. Just need to come up with a great acronym. What do you think?

Interesting. Please post pictures of these adapters. I love the idea of helping out stranded Teslas!

It should have both 240v (NEMA 14-50) and 120v pigtails. That's what comes with the Mach E.

Got to love how the box says "Compatible With All Tesla Vehicles".

Either Ford did that intentionally or including that adaptor was an afterthought.
I’m guessing it was the result of Farley’s comments at the launch event: “and if the power goes out you can charge your neighbor’s Tesla”.

The smack about Tesla is funny to read. There were a few issues along the way but I can assure you the tech and other things we've seen so far in this truck seem to be lacking. I'm hoping Ford does this right and stands behind it. However when you see Tesla grow, produce a few million cars, put the same hardware in all of them, make many major improvements along the way, innovate and push those innovations out to all past buyers, allow full computer upgrades to keep an older car current, that is some impressive stuff.

Then the first major thing we learn about our new 2022 Lightnings is that Ford couldn't get their new Android stack out the door so we will be unicorns with central computer systems that are only in 20K trucks or so for a single year. Ford has gone on record saying they won't have an upgrade path, well I hope they last a long time because we won't get any further development and then they have an issue in a few years you'll be lucky to get parts and maybe not even SW patches. The MachE guys say it is different, but if you want to go back to the sister forum this one was split from you'll also see that Ford can't even push SW out for over a year. Tesla pushes to almost the whole fleet at least once every 6 weeks or so. You don't have to decide when you might want to download it or when you want to be home. The download happens anytime it is connected to Wifi - the you simply press a button when you have 30 minutes.

I've driven Ford, I'm coming back for the Lightning. However you best at least keep your eyes open to know that Ford is following a leader here that has many strides on us already. Ford has entered a market and have not even taken baby steps with these technologies yet.

Tesla is not immune to their own problems. For instance: what about the tesla wall chargers or wall connectors whatever the proprietary proper name is being able to load share via Wi-Fi? That’s been something that’s been promised for something like two or three years and still hasn’t gone live.

Elon and his company made definitely be innovators an idea say liters; but they certainly aren’t perfect at this game either.
