EVchargers is proud to be the first Australian retailer to offer a ‘Mennekes’ Type 2 plug with a button to open Tesla charge ports. This is a Tesla only product and for now available only for 16A version.
This cable is a Type 2 MALE to Type 2 FEMALE, which will allow you to charge your Tesla at any Type 2 Charging station. These charging stations are commonly installed by local councils and businesses and are readily found on Plugshare.com – set your filter to Type 2 under ‘COMPATIBLE PLUGS’.
If you purchase the cable with the optional charge port button, it will allow you to stop charging / open your charge port in the same way you can at Tesla Superchargers, Destination Chargers, via the Gen1/Gen2 UMC or the smartphone app.
Use the pull-down menu to select Amperage. For owners of Model 3, Model S and X with single on-board chargers, select 16A – 11kW.
For owners of Model S ‘classic nose’ with dual on-board chargers, and Model S/X ‘Raven’ owners, select 32A – 22kW.
