A You-tube video by Tom Maloughney where he was reviewing the options for charging an ID.4 said emphatically that if you buy a Tesla Tap adapter so you can charge from a Tesla Destination Charger (NOT a Tesla Supercharger) it must be rated AT LEAST 50 amps or damage could occur to the adapter or YOUR CAR. The reason is that the Tesla Destination Charger can deliver 48 amps, and the ID.4 can accept up to 48 amps. If you had a 40 amp Tesla Tap adapter in between the two it could overheat and be damaged, and possibly your ID.4 too.
Is this everyone else's understanding on this?
