Though not compatible with SuperCharger all other Tesla charging stations will work simply connect this adapter and utilize the Tesla charging network.

I emailed the store owner regarding the IPace and this device....

The TeslaTap works fine with the IPace.
I would suggest the TeslaTap40, for the extra $10.00.
All of the TeslaTaps will work the difference is the amount of power that they can carry just like using a thicker extension cord.

Just make sure that you stay away from the clones out there. They are not rated at all.

Thanks,
Dave

This is Level 2 charging only, right?

I apologize if the answer is in the linked video, but I am unable to view it right now.

This is compatible with all portable and stationary chargers from 110-250VAC.

With this adapter cable you can charge your non-Tesla EV on a Tesla Destination, UMC, or Wall Connector charger.

The adapter has a special circuit that allows it to work on any current Tesla charger including Destination Chargers.

This adapter cable has all of the pins needed to maintain all functionality and safety protocols used by UMC and J1772 charging systems.

So it is yes, then.

Thanks.

This is great! Opens up all Tesla Destination chargers to non-Teslas.
I read somewhere that certain color Tesla destination chargers were not compatible.
But can't remember the specifics.:|

I just ordered one, but then later heard that Tesla chargers can go up to 70 amps, whereas Level 2 chargers are typically 30 amps. Has anybody actually used the Teslatap at a Tesla Destination charger? And, would we have a problem if we ran into a charger putting out more Amps, or will the I-Pace adapt?

The adapter knows the flow through limit and will restrict accordingly to protect itself. And having more amps available will not matter to the vehicle as it will just pull in what is needed. Either the car or the supply will restrict power to the lower level so all is safe. There is actually a pilot signal for these items to communicate with each other.

Exactly and no matter how it "adapts" the L2 portion of the connector has rated amp limits and won't exceed the 7 KWHr charger onboard. The Fast charger connector (extended) can handle more.

Just ordered. Not sure I will get the Tesla Charger since I already have 4 L2 EVSE's, but I still might because of it's 14-50 and handy size.
