I may do this to replace the factory EVSE (which is only 1.2 kW max). The Tesla EVSE is small, has both 120v and 240v pigtails, and can charge at full i-Pace 7.0 kW at RV campgrounds if you find yourself out for adventure. The factory EVSE is so slow, that you'd probably call for a tow truck if you ended up with a range issue outside the area of SAE L2 coverage. This is more important if you going to do some fireroading in the i-Pace. You will probably need an RV hookup at some point.

You still need a way to charge your I-Pace at home using a 240V NEMA 14-50 outlet. The Tesla Mobile Connector Bundle is what you plug in between your NEMA 14-50 outlet and the TeslaTap adapter plugged into your I-Pace. This gives you about 20-21 miles of range for every hour of connection.

There's also an adapter to go between the typical RV park connection and a NEMA 14-50. I can post a picture of mine if you need it. Got it from Amazon.

What's the max wattage of a typical RV park connection?

40 amps, 80% duty cycle. So up to 9.6 kW.

You may find a few that are wired off 3 phase giving 208 volts or 8.32 kW
Either way I-Pace will charge at max rate.

Today I drove ten miles to assist my wife when she called about her I-Pace that would not start. Thought about all the possible and horrendous things that could be wrong while I drove there. Turns out that since there was no start-up sound she made the logical but incorrect conclusion. All is well and she now looks for the “ready” light.

Had a ceramic waxing job today. On my JagYouWire that is. He's also putting a some kind of superior version of Rain-X on the glass. I hope it doesn't interfere with anything. I've found modern digital cars to be very picky about coatings and dirty sensors. They program the sensors for a very specific window.

It's not entirely her fault. I've run into a few times I thought (99% sure) I turned the car on, and it was not, then played with it back and forth.

There is a lag to the start button I think. So I'm getting used to holding the brake, and pressing for a full second (that's actually a long time to push a button). Then I wait until everything is Woke, and press shifter button. Many cars say, PLEASE WAIT or similar when booting them up. Not the i-Pace.

Here's another option:

This lets you charge 120v or 240v from the same cord. You could install a 240v plug (on a 30 Amp circuit) in your garage instead of installing a permanent station. And, use this charger at home or on the road.
