Tesla has launched its new cheaper $200 Mobile Connector, after recently announcing new vehicle purchases would not include a Gen 2 Mobile Connector, that offers charging via a regular household outlet, a decision that has resulted in mixed opinions by the company’s customers.

“Stay charged on extended trips or when you need it most with Mobile Connector. Using a standard outlet, you can recharge up to 3 miles of range per hour with the NEMA 5-15 Adapter or up to 30 miles of range with the NEMA 14-50 Adapter depending on your vehicle,” explains Tesla.

The new Mobile Connector at $200 (was $275) includes the following:

  • 1x Mobile Connector – 20’ cable
  • 1x NEMA 5-15 Adapter
  • 1x NEMA 14-50 Adapter (based on selection)
  • 1x storage bag

There’s an option to get only a NEMA 5-15 adapter, or an additional 14-50 adapter for the same $200 price. The Mobile Connector is out of stock.

Tesla’s previous Corded Mobile Connector with fixed 14-50 NEMA adapter has also dropped in price to $200 (was $400).

The automaker also says, “Vehicle orders placed on or after April 28, 2022 will not include a Mobile Connector with delivery. Mobile Connector orders with both NEMA 5-15 Adapter and NEMA 14-50 Adapter will begin shipping in August 2022.”

Previously, Tesla’s order deadline to include a Mobile Connector was April 17.

Also new is Tesla’s Wall Connector, slashed in price to $400 again after a recent price increase (was $495).

The discount is likely to help alleviate pressure for new owners as their cars won’t include a charger, and they will either need to buy the $200 USD Mobile Connector or spend double for the Wall Connector.

Tesla has also axed the name Gen 2 Mobile Connector Bundle to just ‘Mobile Connector’.
