I'm not a fan of those clip connections, especially when high current is travelling. Seems like a loose connections that caused resistance/heat.
I have noticed the newer ones having more pressure, let us know what you find..that is if there's a visible story on the melt down...I agree but those pressure clips do seem to have alot of pressure behind them.
They may have set it for 48 even though it's plugged into a 50 amp kiln receptacle. They tried to get me to make them a second invoice a year after install, saying car receptacle not kiln receptacle like the original ironically enough. I told them it was against company policy.I guess I'd need to know what setting the charger was set to. The early Tesla chargers that went up to 80 amps smoked a couple of my installs. The newer ones have been ok. I don't care for the idea of the latest gen Tesla ones need you to connect to wifi to adjust the charger output. The previous ones had switching for it that I remember. What I really hate is skimpy to no documentation delivered with products and all you get is one of those codes to scan or a link. Don't they realize even in affluent areas, there isn't always wifi or cell service available. The lousy pictograms and poorly translated text is crap.
Yes probably. Cheap junk.Do these plug into a receptacle already there? It looks like you can order a couple of versions 14-50 or 6-50. Internal wiring should be able to handle any amp setting. Manufacturing defect?
Theyre like tinned or soldered ends on the wall plug cord and those come preterminated. The installer puts the car charging cable under pressure clips which are also tinned.I have noticed the newer ones having more pressure, let us know what you find..that is if there's a visible story on the melt down...
Polarity seems correct, it could be that only a few strands were inserted and the rest bent back as the cable was being pushed in.
That's right, thanks for kicking around the electrons in my memory. I am now thinking it was the soldering point to the board perhaps..mfr defectTheyre like tinned or soldered ends on the wall plug cord and those come preterminated.
