Do you currently own a Tesla EVSE ?

Charge Up In About 5 1/2 Hours Using Your 120v Honda OE EVSE At 240 Volts.
Level 2 Charging Adapters: 10 Gauge / 100% Copper Cord, Most are $49 Shipped.
I Build 240v Conversion Pigtails With Almost Any Plug Needed, PM Me If You Need One.

Since we're on the Clarity forum, I figured it's a reasonable starting point...

I have a 2018 clarity this is an adapter for a tesla charge cord to J1772. On a trip to California I found a lot of tesla charge stations with free charging not so many J1772.

Got it, that makes sense.

How many "free" charges would you need to break even at $239 dollars ?

I agree with Rob - it's going to take a lot of free charges to cover the price of that adapter. On the other hand, cost isn't everything and I could see this being useful if you're frequently parked where there are Tesla chargers. We sometimes pay for convenience, which is why convenience stores can charge higher prices for small food items that you might want on the road.

Hi in this case free had two meanings as in not being used and charging for no cost. But getting off topic I was asking if anyone has used one of these with there car. Don't know about anyone else but free charging I would like. Where I am now and using the time of use plan it costs under a dollar to charge over night. Even costing $300 if I could charge for free part of the time would be great. I don't know if everyone knows that Tesla cars charge for free a lot of the time that is why the cars cost north of $100000. There is a tesla type charger where I work and any car can use it any time

The Tesla adapter from Tesla is J1772 Female to Tesla Male - it's made for Teslas to use non-Tesla Level 2 charging. It won't allow you to use a Tesla "destination charger" to charge a non-Tesla or to use a Tesla Level 2 home charge station to charge a non-Tesla.

If you have some other kind of non-Tesla adapter that's Tesla Female to J1772 Male I'd be wary of it.

The "free" Tesla charging you're thinking of is Level 3, DC Supercharging. It's a moot point, though, because the Clarity PHEV can't accept DC current - and the Clarity EV has a CCS charging receptacle for Level 3.

I think you are mistaken about the tesla chargers there is one where I work. Just level two. I saw the paperwork from Tesla the owner of the building pays for the electricity and the install. For that Tesla will give the charging equipment to the building owner for free. Also states it will show up on the tesla network of chargers. Anyone can use it, there is no way to collect money for its use.
