Hey man, you kinda dug yourself a hole there. You have been on this forum since 2022, have started 8 threads and managed to respond to many other threads and then claim you never knew you couldn’t use the Lectron DCFC Adapter that you would have had to pre-order A LONG TIME AGO to charge on a wall charger. Considering this adapter has been the spotlight for many months and you had the wherewithal to pre-order it unlike 99% of others on this forum kind of points to the fact you are not as dumb as you make yourself sound and instead are just trolling. You then claim you are not tech savvy in the same response you added a photo of the Lectron adapter where you DIGITALLY drew on to make your point. Your initial post was vague at best and definitely had the appearance of trolling, so yeah, you got smacked around like Nacho Libré.
Best response ever.

In general defense, the adapters don't say anything on them. If my wife went to plug in, she won't know a Tesla from a nacs from a j1772 from a CCS. Plug and charge at rivian Tesla EV go but nowhere else. Find an app, create an account, locate a station, hope it works. No wonder many people say "nope, I'll keep a gas car."

"Green" ones don't fit in gasoline cars. Knowing just enough can be dangerous.
Except in Europe Green is unleaded gasoline and Black is diesel.

Assumptions can bite us all, and the fact that Tesla shares AC and DC pins on their NACs design will lead to some confusion for sure.

Wow very helpful forum. Thank you.
I jumped from tesla to rivian(regrets). Very different crowd. Good bye
Your invaluable contributions will be missed.

PS. Your adapter is missing the AC pins. Doesn't take a genius to understand why it wouldn't work.

i find myself just a little suspicious of the original post for
- having one of the few Lectron NACS adapters that has actually shipped
- in Canada no less (takes extra time to get there)
- using stock photography and not an actual photo of the adapter

Just my 5¢, no pennies anymore in Canada so rounding up.

His comment not mine. Either way Diesel nozzles are bigger.
