So, my question: what is the difference between the corded mobile connector that I have, and the Gen 2 mobile connector bundle (aside from the adaptor that comes with the bundle)? I ask because should I (or anyone) need to buy a new one, why would you buy a "corded mobile connector" at $520, when the bundle is $275, plus another $35 for the 14-50 connector? I must be missing something.
Yeah I dont know.

That's odd. I wonder if they're out of stock.

The two most important are:
- The Gen 2 has several swappable adapters (separate purchases) that allow it to plug directly into a variety of outlets. The CMC had only a 14-50 plug and you had to use adapters between the 14-50 and the desired outlet, so the Gen 2 has a cleaner deign.
- The Gen 2 is limited to 32 Amps, while the CMC can charge at up to 40 Amps.

It's that latter reason that causes people to seek out the older CMC and causes the prices to be higher. From what I can tell it's been discontinued by Tesla and is no longer available for purchase as a new accessory.

Charging options

I am looking for suggestions and recommendations for solutions/adapters to allow me to plug an
i_Pace into a Tesla level 2 charger I might want to use while
away from home.

I know I can't compare everything to Tesla, but I have a Tesla as well, so I am well aware of what it COULD/SHOULD be.
