Charging Extension Cord for Tesla Model S

Charging Extension Cord for Tesla Model S

When you travel along a route that can’t make use of superchargers, you may need access to a external power source at an RV park or the house of a friend and relative. But upon arrival at the charging location, you may not be able to get your Tesla Model S within 20 feet of the power outlet. Our 30 foot extension charging cable integrates seamlessly with your Tesla charging cable and will allow you to reach power sources that are up to 50 feet from your vehicle. The Ergo Grip Handle is designed to provide a firm grip for unplugging heavy power cords easier.  The built-in LED indicator illuminates when the power is activated to easily test the connection. It's a must-have for Tesla owners who use unconventional locations for charging. 

Note: Charging Extension Cord has been designed for North American electrical outlets. It will not work in any other international location.

Description

Our 30-foot charging cable extension integrates seamlessly with your Tesla charging cable. When connected to your standard Tesla charging cable, the extension allows you to reach power sources that are up to 50 feet from your vehicle.

For example, after a 120-mile trip to visit a relative, you must charge your Model S. The only workable power source is a clothes drier or AC outlet (240V, 30amp) that is in a 'mud' room off the garage, about 40 feet from you vehicle. Using your Tesla charging cable and our extension (along with a clothes dryer adapter), you'll be able to reach the outlet and charge your vehicle.

The extension cord is constructed from UL-approved components and incorporates a NEMA 14-50 male connector (plug) and NEMA-14-50 female connector (receptacle). The NEMA 14-50 plug-end of the extension can accommodate appropriate charging adapters (see our adapters here).

Specifications

The extension cord is constructed from UL-approved components and incorporates a NEMA 14-50 male connector (plug) and NEMA-14-50 female connector (receptacle). The NEMA 14-50 plug-end of the extension can accommodate appropriate charging adapters (see our adapters here).

The extension cable itself is constructed from 4-wire #6 UL rated electrical cable thereby reducing power loss over its length. The extension cable weights approximately 22 lbs.

The extension cable has a convenient holder than allows it to be transported without difficulty.

The Ergo Grip Handle is designed to provide a firm grip for unplugging heavy power cords easier.

The built-in LED indicator illuminates when the power is activated to easily test the connection.

DISCLAIMER: This item is for electric vehicle use ONLY, and must not be used with any other power system. Please label and store with other electric vehicle charging equipment.

FAQ

How does the 30-foot extension cord work?

The extension cord has NEMA 14-50 male plug and female receptacle. You plug the male plug of your Tesla charging cable into the female receptacle of your extension chord. The male end of the extension chord then plugs into a NEMA 14-50 power cord or, if another power source is available, you use one of the available charging adapters, plug the extension chord into the adapter, and then plug the adapter into the power outlet.

How far can my vehicle be from the power source?

If you use only the Tesla standard charging cable, your vehicle must be within approximately 20 feet of the power source. If you add an extension cord to the standard Tesla charging cable, your vehicle must be approximately 50 feet or less from the charging source.

Can I use the 110 Volt adapter Tesla provided with this extension cord?

Yes, this extension cord will work with the Tesla provided 110 Volt adapter, although may be inefficient. 

Is it possible to chain two extension cords together to gain even more charging distance?

Yes, but as the total distance from the electrical outlet increases (i.e. as the total length of the combined cords increases), you will experience line losses that will increase charging time.

Is it possible to run into a situation where I have the right extension cord coupled to the right adapter, but charging doesn’t work?

Tesla vehicles are relatively sensitive to the quality of the power supply. If there is significant voltage variation or other anomalies, charging may not occur.

Will this extension cord (and or adapters) work in Europe or other international locations?

No. All charging adapters have been designed for North American electrical outlets. They will not work in any other international location and should not be ordered if your Tesla vehicle resides in an international location.

Can I use my charging adapter to power other devices besides my Tesla?

Due to the wiring requirements for Tesla charging equipment, it is unsafe and not recommended that an EV adapter be used for anything else besides with electric vehicles. Please label and store all adapters with other EV charging equipment.

How long does it take to ship Charging Extension Cord?

We target delivery between 1 to 2 weeks from the date of your order (via FedEx).
