We knew that Tesla made J1772 to Tesla adaptors so that Teslas could use the extensive public “universal” charging network. But a JDapter Stub is now on the market. Non-Teslas can now use Tesla AC Charging Stations (but not Tesla Superchargers). Because it’s so new, the price definitely exceeds the Tesla converter’s affordable $95, but with the potential of free Tesla charging, it may be worth it.
The EV market is growing, but there are not enough chargers to serve the market. So what does this mean for EV drivers? Well, there are two primary pain points that come up. We like to call them ‘range anxiety’ and ‘charge anxiety.’ You can call them whatever you want, but at the end of the day, it is inhibiting the EV market.
