Ditching Team Tesla? Here's how you can save your charger

As the electric vehicle market continues to evolve, it's becoming increasingly evident that Tesla is no longer the sole option for quality EVs. There are now numerous other manufacturers producing impressive electric vehicles as well.

While Tesla has been at the forefront of pushing the boundaries in terms of electric vehicle range and design, other automakers such as Hyundai, Kia, Ford, and Chevrolet are also making significant strides. They now offer electric vehicle models with comparable range to Tesla, but at a more affordable price point, giving consumers more options to choose from in the market.

However, for those who bought a Tesla in the past but now want to make the shift to a different EV, it’s not as easy as just ditching your Tesla. After all, Tesla uses a proprietary charging plug that is not compatible with all other EVs, which use a standard plug (J1772). 

So, if you had gone all in on Team Tesla and bought a Mobile Connector for your trunk and a Wall Connector for your garage, using these devices to charge your new EV would leave you – as my dad would say – up shit’s creek without a paddle. 

But what if I told you that you don’t actually have to get rid of your Tesla chargers?

There is a solution called the Lectron Tesla to J1772 Adapter, which allows you to continue using your Tesla chargers. This adapter enables you to connect your Tesla vehicle to a J1772 charging station, saving you the expense of purchasing new chargers and potentially saving you hundreds of dollars.

Simply plug this powerful 48 amp adapter onto the end of your Tesla charger, and you will be able to charge any standard EV!

Let’s take a closer look

Out of the box, the first thing you’ll notice is the quality of the design – strong, hefty, and durable – yet compact enough to fit in your glove box. 

To connect the adapter to the Tesla charger, slide the adapter over the end of the connector until it clicks into place. The snug fit makes for a solid connection, so it won’t slip out or mischarge when you walk away. 

Then, plug the adapter into your EV’s charging port. The adapter and the vehicle will automatically lock the charging port and start charging. 


The Lectron Tesla to J1772 charging adapter supports up to 48A charging and is compatible with Tesla High Powered Wall Connectors, all generations of Tesla Destination Chargers, and Tesla Mobile Connectors. 

The only Tesla charger the adapter is not compatible with is the Supercharger, due to the extremely high voltages that need to pass from the charger to your car. 

Final thoughts:

The Lectron Tesla to J1772 charging adapter is a great deal that saves you some serious money by not having to overhaul your entire charging system. It also comes in handy if you’re traveling, since you can even use Tesla Destination Chargers to charge your standard EV!

So, if you’ve been thinking about moving on from your Tesla but don’t want to go through all the hassle, consider Lectron’s Tesla to J1772 charging adapter for a quick, easy, inexpensive, and seamless solution.
