Looking to acquire one - for emergencies - does anybody have recommendation?
Being quoted upwards of £350
Is there a second hand market?
thanks

Is a Model S compatible with 3rd party / DIY / non-Tesla EVSE given that it apparently accepts both CHAdeMO DC input via an adaptor and supercharging DC directly via the Type 2 connector?

Technically not a Type2 socket on the Tesla, but a Type 2 compatible one.

The type2 standard does actually allow for DC up to 140A, using all the AC pins as DC pins, but I don't think that's ever been deployed.

Open EVSE is probably your best bet. Or a Juicebox. You could possibly squeeze it in at under £200, but you'd be doing a lot of work yourself. Otherwise nuWorldEnergy have a sale on.

Aparently a lot of 13amp to type two cables dont work with Zoes. They aparently trip the earth trips on the units. So if you have a Zoe make sure the cable works before you buy it. It does explain why Renault can get away with around £500 for one of these. I gather a few owners have ended up getting them after trying various units.
