With JDpater™, you will be able to plug any modern Electric Vehicle (EV) in North American or Japan into any Alternating Current (AC)*** powered Tesla "Destination charger" / UMC / mobile connector / HPWC / wall connector. There are thousands of these throughout North America and Japan. Every Tesla owner has at least one! Also, there are thousands of hotels, restaurants, businesses, shopping centers, as well as other establishments with these Tesla charge stations.
***Alternating Current (AC) is the type of electricity that is in a home or business. Direct Current (DC) electrical energy is that which is stored in batteries.
If your vehcile did not come with a J1772 / "L1" / "Level 2" / Type 1 inlet, we can also sell you a J1772 inlet for your EV. This works great for homebuilt EVs or other conversion EVs.. If you have a ZERO motorycle, we have adaptors for the ZERO "C13" charge inlet, too. Tesla AC charger stations have maximum capabilities as follows:
1) HPWC wall connector - 80 amps max / 208-240 volts only (19.2kW max, adjustable at installation from 12 amps to 80 amps). NOTE: Do not use an HPWC that is connected to 277 volts.
2) UMC mobile connector - 40 amps max / 120-208-240 volts (9.6kW max, adjustable with interchangeable wall plugs from 12 to 40 amps)
The Kickstarter campaign is scheduled for 30 days in total, starting Saturday, 24 Sept 2016. Within about six months, we should be able to ship your product.
The price during the Kickstarter event will be $199 each. If you are a reseller, or just want to order 5 or more, contact us for wholesale pricing.
NO TESLA SUPERCHARGER !!!
Again, it is NOT possible to use the Tesla Supercharger DC charging network. Yes, Tesla vehicles can use CHAdeMO DC charging equipment with a Tesla supplied adaptor. No, we will never build such an adaptor, even if we could bypass the Tesla security measures (we can't). The use of the Supercharger network is entirely controlled by Tesla Motors.
JDapter will only work with Tesla AC charging equipment that every Tesla owner has, like the UMC / mobile connector or the HPWC / wall connector / "destination chargers".
JDapter™ does NOT give you free reign to plug in wherever you like.
The Tesla owned AC charging stations that are at a Tesla Service Center, for instance, are obviously intended for Tesla cars, much the same as the J1772 charging stations at a Nissan dealer Service Center are likely for Nissan vehicles undergoing repair and service. We don't recommend attempting to use these sites for any reason whatsoever except for the obvious brand of car that should be there.
For charging any Electric Vehicle, always ask first before plugging in anywhere that you don't own or have a public network card (like ChargePoint, eVgo, Blink, Greenlots, AeroVironment, EVconnect, SemaConnect, etc). The same would be true of a Tesla vehicle at any J1772 charging station using the Tesla supplied J1772 charge adaptor, or a Tesla vehicle using a CHAdeMO station with the Tesla supplied CHAdeMO adaptor. Ask first if you don't have a public access charge card.
The charging station site owner / operator is the final authority as to whether you can charge at a particular location. If there's a question about plugging in anywhere, I'd strongly recommend getting permission first. That permission is between the EV owner / operator and the charge station owner / operator. Quick Charge Power LLC does NOT grant permission for use of any charging stations, anywhere, at any time.
So, to repeat, if the owner / operator of a Tesla HPWC destination charger or Tesla UMC mobile connector does not explicitly give you permission to use it, don't. If you have any question whatsoever, get permission from the owner / operator of the charging equipment prior to using it.
TESLA OWNERS WITH CONCERNS
Some Tesla vehicle owners are concerned that if Tesla Motors donated a charge station, for example to a hotel, then that station is intended for the exclusive use of Tesla owners while at that hotel. However, at the same time, these same Tesla vehicle owners may find it perfectly rational to use their Tesla supplied J1772 and CHAdeMO adaptors while using charging equipment that was NOT provided by Tesla. Some of these J1772 and/or CHAdeMO charging stations have been donated by entities like Nissan, BMW, VW, Kia, or others (Nissan has donated thousands of charging stations around the world). There's more on that below.
In any event, please be courteous in any exchanges or debates that may come up with your use of JDapter™.

Who might want to use JDapter?
1) People who own both a Tesla vehicle as well as a non-Tesla electric vehicle, and who have purchased their own Tesla charging equipment. JDapter is a fantastic product for home or office use to charge your compatible vehicle (see list of compatible vehicles below).
2) People who do not have a Tesla, but want a premium charging equipment offered by Tesla. They can buy any Tesla charging station and use JDapter to charge both at home or the office with ANY electric vehicle.
3) People planning on buying / leasing a Tesla vehicle in the future, but have a different brand of EV (listed below). Again, they can purchase the Tesla charging equipment NOW, and use it with their current plug-in vehicle, and also with a future Tesla vehicle.
4) People traveling with a non-Tesla EV that want the flexibility of using public Tesla charge stations. There are thousands of them around North America and Japan.
5) Hotels, businesses, companies, etc, that would like their fleet vehicles or customers / visitors / employees to be able to use charging equipment on all their EVs, not just Tesla vehicles.
TESLA ADAPTERS FROM TESLA
Tesla has produced the following adaptors so that Tesla vehicles can use non-Tesla charging equipment paid for by other auto manufacturers, as well as public and private companies, businesses, governments, non-profits, charities, etc:
1) Every Model S and X that is sold new comes with a J1772 adaptor, plus it is available online or at a Tesla Service Centers for $95. Tesla has not designed, developed, produced or manufactured a single J1772 charging station. Nissan, as well as several other auto manufacturers have, like Mitsubishi, VW, BMW and Kia.
2) The Tesla CHAdeMO adaptor is available for $450. Tesla has not paid for, designed, developed, manufacturered or installed a single CHAdeMO station. Other auto manufacturers, like Nissan, Mitsubishi and Kia all have. Thousands of CHAdeMO stations were built, installed and paid for by Nissan alone, and most were given away.
3) The Tesla Roadster J1772 adaptor (discontinued from Tesla, but still available as an aftermarket product). Again, Tesla doesn't build J1772 equipment.
4) In the future, Tesla will likely offer an adaptor for CCS chargers, too. Tesla has not announced any plans to design, develop, manufacture or install a single CCS station, nor is it expected that they will. Other auto manufacturers, like VW, BMW and Kia, have however.
