[Amazon.ca] AmazonBasics 32 Amp Level 2 EV Charging Station $514.38

18 foot cable, NEMA 4 rating. 1 year warranty.

I've been watching EV Charging stations for a while. This is the best price for a high quality UL certified (non sketchy) 32 amp charging station that I have seen. It is a rebranded LITE-ON, there is also a PowerCharge version of the same charger with a longer cable and 3 year warranty on Amazon for $600. This one dropped from $600 yesterday. Just ordered.

It's a NEMA 6-50 outlet rather than your standard household 110v 1-15 outlet. They look similar, but they're not physically compatible without an adapter.

Yes, but I believe that the Model 3 comes with with the correct adapter. This EV charger uses the North American standard SAE J1772. This video shows you how to use it (it's in the glovebox, it seems?):

if this is installed outside, make sure the cable stays flexible at low temperatures. extremely annoying to have a stiff cable, difficult to manage an place back on charger

I need a Qi version of this charger.....you drive your car onto the pad until the charger beeps that you have the right position.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

I'd be careful with such an investment: consider buying something more reliable unless you want surprises... so far amazonbasics hasn't worked well for me. You can expect the quality as what the name says...
