After Tesla stopped including the Mobile Connector bundle for free with all new car purchases as part of an Apple-like move in April, it is now in stock for its lowered price of $200 USD on Tesla’s website (via Reddit).
The Mobile Connector had been unavailable on the Tesla Shop ever since the company pulled it from customer orders. For Tesla owners, the Mobile Connector is the best way to trickle charge their car at home if they don’t have a Wall Connector or other charger installed. It also makes for an excellent backup charging option on road trips.
“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,” Tesla explains on the product page.
Tesla’s Mobile Connector kit includes:
- 1x Mobile Connector – 20’ cable
- 1x NEMA 5-15 Adapter
- 1x NEMA 14-50 Adapter (based on selection)
- 1x storage bag
You can now place orders for Mobile Connector kits with a NEMA 5-15 adapter, but kits with an additional NEMA 14-50 adapter (which cost the same) remain out of stock at the time of writing.
Back in April, Tesla also dropped the price of its Corded Mobile Connector with a fixed 14-50 NEMA adapter down to $200 (from $400). However, the Corded Mobile Connector also remains out of stock.
