I am going to buy a Tesla to J1772 adapter. Is there a difference? Which is best?
Thanks

Is anyone using either product? If so, please post some feedback. 40 Amp, 50 Amp, 80 Amp? Pros/cons. Thanks

JDapter gets "the nod" because they make an 80 amp version - to my Knowledge TeslaTap does not have an 80 amp version

and when charging my Taycan at a 48 amp Tesla L2 charger (60 amp break) the 40 amp TeslaTap did get noticibiliy warmer to the touch than the 80 amp adapter - you want to run equipment rated for the sorts of loads these EV charging systems can place on equipment - so best practice in this case is the 80 amp version rather than the 40 amp version.
