A good introduction for new EV owners.

Just watched the video - I always like Tom Moloughney's videos. He is very informative yet makes sure it is easy to follow and didn't go too deep into the minutiae. I really appreciate how he calls them "chargers" but explained the true "EVSE" name (there is a certain other forum I would peruse where there were "fanbois" that would bite people's head off for calling them chargers, like it really matters).

Having an EV, not much new information for me but the video is a great introduction to charging for anyone who is unfamiliar with charging EVs.

I do have a TeslaTap adapter I bought during a Black Friday sale (I have a Tesla HPWC at home) but have yet to try it as I don't have any car to try it on (hoping I didn't spend $200 on a broken adapter as past the warranty period).

Thanks I didn't know about the teslatap adapter which I want to get now, since it allows charging at 1000's of tesla destination chargers that are a decent 11kw.
