Tesla to J1772 Adapters

If you have a J1772 compatible EV, you can still charge using a Tesla/NACS plug with one of these adapters. For instance, these adapters would allow you to use the very capable Tesla Mobile Connector or charge at a Tesla destination charger:

If you have a Ford F150 Lightning or other vehicle that can charge at high amperages, you'll want to get an 80A capable adapter since there are a fair number of 80A Tesla destination chargers at hotels, and some people still have older Tesla Wall Connectors that can output 80A. Most other EVs can only charge at 48A from AC.

These adapters won't allow a non-Tesla to charge at a Supercharger station. They are meant for AC wall plug or Tesla destination charging only.

Tesla Superchargers

Currently Ford and Rivian EVs can charge at most Tesla Supercharger locations with the use of an adaper supplied for free by Ford/Rivian, or purchased from a third party ( A2Z or Lectron).

Later in 2024, General Motors, Volvo and Polestar will also be granted access to the Tesla Supercharger network, then other automakers will follow.

All non Tesla EVs can additionally charge at the "Magic Dock" enabled Tesla Superchargers, or at third party CCS networks.
