The mobile bundle is out of stock right now (Jan 22):
https://shop.tesla.com/us/en/product/vehicle-accessories/gen-2-mobile-connector-bundle.htmlhttps://shop.tesla.com/us/en/product/vehicle-accessories/gen-2-mobile-connector-bundle.html

So instead I opted for this 240V/30Amp cable which received good reviews and will get to me tomorrow ... which is hopefully when I'll be picking up the beast at JLR Livermore.

It's only ~$40 more after tax than the Tesla cable, which is also shorter. I will probably still get the Tesla tap but that's not as urgent.

I found my Model 3 UMB on Ebay $280 no tax or shipping because Tesla was out of stock last week

I like the solutions in this thread and appreciate your work. I need a 30’ run to reach my I-Pace. How to?
You will need to buy a compatible extension cord if you cannot run permanent wiring. An RV supply or welding supply store would have a compatible extension cord

Terrific explanation of charging technique for iPace!

I am replying to NerdOne who has given a terrific description of how to get a faster charge for the iPace using Tesla Tap-Tesla Mobile Connector-Nema 14-50 220 outlet.

How many miles do you add per hour using this way of charging from, say, 20% battery life going to, say, 90%? Do you know if this is faster or slower than using ChargePoint?

Thank you!

Unless you drive pretty close to the same way, same road conditions and in the same weather conditions all the time, how many ‘miles’ added is a variable that isn’t an accurate unit of measure.

With that said, the charging rate you receive from an AC EVSE is not varied based on manufacturer.

If using this charging solution at home, how can I arrange for TOU charging during the hours when my rates are lowest? Reading some of the other threads in this forum, it seems that the on-board timer to start and end charging is not reliable...?

At home I plug in at 10PM and let it rip. SCE-TOU-A. Unplug by 8AM. No timers or delay programming on the vehicle or EVSE. I need 100% reliability when charging at home.

I ran into an issue with my Model 3 UMC. I bought a Tesla 14-30 pigtail, since I have one at work, and it doesn't work reliably. It's commercial 208v power using 2 phases. My Clipper Creek 14-30 works there for the last 6 years. Just the Tesla unit has a problem. It reports back wrong or something. It starts, then it yields weird numbers, then it stops in a few minutes with about 3 miles added.

Oddly the 14-50 works perfectly.

(4) Unplug the Tesla Mobile Connector for NEMA 14-50 if you're using one.
Very informative, NerdUno. This is the only step I'd consider skipping if you are doing this in your own garage. Most NEMA 14-50 sockets are not manufactured to weather frequent plugging and unplugging. I'd just leave it plugged in all the time if you're staying put in the same (secure) location for a while.

I'm sure this has been covered before. I have a new 2020 i-Pace in Northern California. My Aerovironment charger charges the car well. We're on TOU/Off peak

1. How do I set up the car to start charging at 7pm and not before then charge until it is full.
2. How do I set it up as #1 but stopping at 80% full
3. How do I set it so it charges immediately on plug in for weekends which are off peak.
4. How do I override the timers if I need to use a charger outside of my house during the day.

If anyone can provide answers or point me in the right direct it would help a lot. Thanks.

You can't. Not sure why you'd want to. It's not a Tesla that will allow overcharging the battery.

3. How do I set it so it charges immediately on plug in for weekends which are off peak.

Just don't set timed charging when you park.

4. How do I override the timers if I need to use a charger outside of my house during the day.

Do nothing when you park.

Jjohncm, I can't help you with weekend charging because I use Chargepoint and the app allows me to continuously charge on weekends using timed charging.

For question #2, if your system is 240V 32A you can assume about an 8% percent charge per hour and set your timer accordingly. For example: from 50% charge to 80% is nearly 4 hours of charge time. I understand your concerns about battery longevity as there are numerous online articles about keeping your state of charge between 20% and 80% to extend battery life.
