Tesla Gen2 Mobile Connector Adaptor

(58 customer reviews)


Tesla Gen2 Mobile Connector Adaptor, with selectable 20A 3pin & 5pin and 32A 3pin & 5pin plugs to suit everyone’s needs when charging at 20A or 32A outlets, single or 3 phase.

Feeling tempted to buy for a few dollars cheaper from another supplier? What if this happens on your first charge?

How will that work out for warranty?

In this case the temperature-sensing chip (circled in red) stopped the UMC from charging before the heat build up caused a hazardous situation or a fire.

In early 2024 we were approached by a Chinese manufacturer looking to enter the Australian market with a copy of this product.

We are Australia’s first and leading online retailer of the Gen2 Mobile Connector Adaptor but research & development is at the heart of everything we do so we requested a sample of this product for material & workmanship testing and validation.

We tore it down and found:
1) the temperature sensor was not in the plug where it needs to be to measure heat-buildup in the plug/socket connection,
2) the plug did not have the RCM logo.




This is where the temperature-sensor is found on all of our Gen2 Mobile Connector Adaptors.




Needless to say we declined their enthusiastic overtures to sell their product. We have noticed these copy-adaptors now appearing on other online stores – they are easily identifiable as they have a tab on the topside of the clear shell.


So before buying the knock-off copy ask yourself if the $30 saving is worth the risk.
Where is the temperature-sensor? At the plug?

Buy our adaptors with confidence — 100% 5-star reviews — our adaptors are tested under load (aka plugged into our own Tesla) before shipping. If any issues, call 1800 PLUGIN and chat to us – we speak your language.
Did we mention our Gen2 adaptors are sold with a 3 year warranty?

This is the perfect solution for those looking to use their mobile connector as a semi-permanent home charger.

Warranty: 3 Years

SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Note: when connected to a 3phase socket this adaptor draws power only from L1 – does not draw power from the other two phases L2, L3.

Use this adaptor to connect your Tesla Mobile Connector (second generation) to single phase or 3phase power outlets rated up to 32A. Your Mobile Connector kit already comes with 10A and 15A tails*

Use the pull-down menu to select your desired plug-type as follows:

  • 20A 3 pin
    This plug allows you to connect to a single phase 20A 3 round pin socket. (3pin flat also possible, contact us)
    This will allow your Tesla to receive charging power up to 4.8kW (where supply current is 20A).
    NOTE: This adaptor is set at the factory to draw no more than 24A. When using turn the Amperage on the Main Control Unit in the car to 20A (or less).
  • 20A 5 pin
    This plug allows you to connect directly to a 3phase 20A 5pin socket.
    This will allow your Tesla to receive charging power up to 4.8kW (where supply current is 20A).
    NOTE: This adaptor is set at the factory to draw no more than 24A. When using turn the Amperage on the Main Control Unit in the car to 20A (or less).
  • 32A 3 pin
    This plug allows you to connect directly to a single phase 32A 3pin socket.
    This will allow your Tesla to receive charging power up to 7.2kW (where supply current is 32A).
  • 32A 5 pin
    This plug allows you to connect directly to a 3phase 32A 5pin socket.
    This will allow your Tesla to receive charging power up to 7.2kW (where supply current is 32A).

Why choose the EVchargers Gen2 Adaptor?
EVchargers was the first Australian retailer to bring to market products for the Gen2 Mobile Connector – we sold our first adaptor within days of the Model 3 launch in Australia! Other online retailers have sought to match our prices by using lower grade industrial plugs, we only use the highest quality Australian designed industrial grade switchgear,

  • conform to AS/NZS 3123:2005,
  • are made from PCA 18 virgin grade plastics (no regrind),
  • use 316 stainless steel springs and mounting screws
  • internal connections have greater than 80% copper content, (helps with the heat rise) and
  • are compatible with Australian switchgear
  • Operating temperature range -25° – 70 °C

If you you need some extra length between the car and the charging outlet, and you know you will be connecting to both 32A and 20A outlets, then another choice is to buy our Gen2 Mobile Connector Bundle.

This adaptor has an internal circuit that monitors the plug temperature and communicates with the car when to initiate the charging session. We use a thicker cable for maximum efficiency and it also is more comfortable to grip onto when connecting and disconnecting it from your Tesla vehicle’s mobile connector.

3 phase sockets (particularly 32A) are very common in rural areas, particularly Showgrounds, farm machinery sheds, council depots etc and are arguably more common than petrol stations out in the bush.

NOTE: the chip monitors temperature and quality of the current – some owners have reported reduced charging power at some 32A locations. This is due to the wiring and how the chip is managing the incoming current to safe levels.

*Model 3’s delivered before Dec 2021 came with tails limited to 8A/12A respectively

    Always strive to use the most environmentally sensitive wrapping/freight, as your market are trying to reduce their impacts.

  12. John Archer (verified owner)

    It should probably be made clear that only one of the three 20A 3Ø pins is connected.

      Hi John,

      Please refer to this paragraph which is clearly written in the product description:

      “Note that this adaptor is for single phase power. When connected to a 3phase socket, it will not be able to make use of the other phases.”

      If you have more product queries, please read the description carefully and/or contact us.

    Ordered the .5m extended 32A 5 pin tail so that the UMC could sit flush. Clearly a high quality cable. Was shipped reasonably quickly. I wall mounted the UMC to make for a tidy finish. Very happy with the product.

    It’s great but I bought the wroing one 🙁

  52. Mitchell (verified owner)

    Great quality cable. Nice and thick. I have a large solar setup but only on single phase so being able to draw 7.2kw will help during those sunny days when the solar is pumping and I can dial it down outside of those hours. Plus have a screw on plug makes it much safer than my 15amp plug, considering its getting used multiple times a day.
