They say not to use extension cords yet I know many have used them as long as the right type is used. I pick up next Fri (very excited)... what do i need to know if I use and extension cord??
Tesla is probably failing conservative to deter someone from trying to run 40 amps in a "Heavy Duty" #12 extension cord. That's a good way to start a fire. I bought 100' of #6 SOOW cable and fitted it with NEMA 14-50 plugs. No problems... just make sure it's not coiled when you're using it :)
Hi celtrog, check out these (use http://volkerize.com to search)
What kind of plug and amps are you looking to charge with?
Per a Tesla Service "Ranger" there may be some Tesla-made extension cords available in the future, but who knows!
