Tesla CCS1 Charger Adapter - Should you get one?

Tesla CCS1 Charger Adapter - Should you get one?

Another breakthrough for EV now allows Tesla owners to charge on a CCS DC Fast Charger. 

If you are someone who:

  1. Fancies road trips and is always on the go
  2. Is tired of finding and queueing at a Tesla supercharger in your vicinity 
  3. Wants a bigger pool and alternatives for charging destination

Here’s some of the stuff the CCS charger adapter will give you access to:

  1. Additional 4,500++ charging stations (DC Fast) across the United States
  2. Freedom to choose - no longer relying on Tesla superchargers in your vicinity or waiting in queues to get your fast charging started!

In the United States, the CCS charging station has now officially overthrown CHAdeMO to be the biggest EV charger in terms of sheer number. Stations such as Electrify America and EVgo Services now also provide multiple CCS ports, compare that to a typical 50kW CHAdeMO unit that only offers 1 port.

The Tesla supercharger itself has a very extensive and advanced network, but it is definitely far from being ideal - There are still numerous areas that are not within the reach of a Tesla supercharger in its vicinity, plus users have reported long queues and waiting times. 

So if you’ve been on trips and you remember situations where you wished you could’ve used a CCS DC fast charger (and you couldn’t) - now you CAN!

Our latest Lectron CCS Charger Adapter gives you access to 4x more DC Fast charging stations in the US - that’s right, 4x!

Tesla thinks CCS is CHAdeMO and so limits charge rate to 50kWh max. This will not change until and if, Tesla changes software or SETEC or LECTRON changes theirs.

~ 44 to 48kw on the Model 3 and Y (tested on an EvGO charger)
Soon as the S arrives I’ll post the charge rate for it.

It works with Model Y but only delivers ~42kw to the car.

Has this adapter been tested on a model Y? If so, what was the max charge rate received?
