    I hope I'll have the "Dutch" Tesla<>Mennekes converter by next week so I can check out how they've done it.

    But from what I read here, it's just a matter of connector the Mennekes signal wire to the Tesla signal wire?

    Here's a Roadster plugged into a Mennekes outlet. No Electronics.

    Tesla, Menekkes and J1772 are basically electrically the same in single phase mode.

    The best option for a European Roadster upgrade is to fit a J1772 socket to the car (see tomsax's account of that) and carry a Mennekes to J1772 cable (this is forseen in the standard) plus a UMC with a J1772 in place of the Tesla connector.

    This way you can charge from:
    - J1772 directly (using the cable attached to the EVSE)
    - Mennekes (using the cable you brought along)
    - Wild sockets (using the J-UMC)

    The above all assuming (reasonably) that there will never be a 3-phase input PEM upgrade for the Roadster.

    a vienna -3phase rectifier is smaller as the single-phase high current charger - why not replacing it? the PEM need a redesign anyway - the blower for the PEM is only IP33 and not a reliable component. if the warranty is expired, i can do what its needed to be done.

    Hi Eberhard - I knew you would say this . If you can get your friends Elon and JB to do it, great! I'll probably buy it. But my post was about what we can practically do now before that wonderful day!

    We picked up the Roadster of my colleague today and I asked about the Mennekes connector cable. There is a Dutch company, EV-Box which seems to have these cables, but I'm not sure if it's a real Tesla <> Mennekes connector or just a adapter for the Mobile charger, thus limiting to 16A.

    I'll give them a call tomorrow and ask about this.

    For now, the Roadster is being charged at 32A at a regular (blue, 1-phase) CEE outlet.

    Just spoke to EV-Box, they don't have a Mennekes <> Tesla cable, for the simple reason, the Tesla connector is not freely available.

    But they do sell Mennekes <> CEE, with a resistor in the Mennekes connector, one for 16A and one for 32A. They are going to send me one so I can charge the Roadster in The Netherlands at E-Laad at 16A and RWE in Germany at 32A.
