Searching the forums doesn't show a clear recommendation that gets the best L2 can offer with flawless compatibility. Can please list specific models or links for your adapter if it's known to work with Rivian?

I have that Lectron for my MME. Haven't had an occasion to pull 48A through it but I have used several times now with no problem. Put the adapter on the Tesla end, then plug the car up, and then there are a few seconds for the handshake to complete and charging to start.

I have a 60A Teslatap Mini and highly recommend it. It’s small, we’ll built and I’ve had no issues at all with it.

I’ll be buying the TelsaTap Mini. I think it’s the best looking, and compatibility can’t be beat.

Would probably help me when I occasionally park in the doctor's lot at my local hospital when there. Apparently, there were a lot more doctors with Tesla's, so they relaced 3 out of 4 of their chargers with Tesla chargers, and only have one J-1772, and even this one is usually covered up with a Tesla with their adapter. No love for my Bolt EV and upcoming R1T...

If it works well, is WAY less expensive than the Tesla Tap mini, around $70 vs $200-300. Let us know if anyone has used it on an R1T successfully! I like saving $$$

I have the Lectron version but haven't had a chance to use it with an R1T yet - but hopefully "soon".

There isn't anything unique about the Rivian that should cause an issue vs anything else with a j1772. Most Tesla L2 chargers are going to be less than 48A anyway.

Where did you see it for $70?
