Jesla (Tesla) Mobile Charge Cable Stolen

Wed Oct 18, 2017 5:28 pm

We returned from a short holiday to find someone had stolen some minor stuff from our Chevy Volt, including 20-year old cloth shopping bags! But they also walked off with our Jesla mobile charge cable. If you see this for sale anywhere, please contact me immediately. This is an expensive piece of gear and it is only of use to someone with a non-Tesla EV.

The Jesla is a Tesla MC cable with a J1772 head. The EVSE says Tesla on it and it comes in a black, zippered bag with several adapters. This is a premium EVSE and is quite a blow to find it stolen. Here are the pertinent details.

Jesla (Tesla MC)

S/N: T15A0000872

P/N 1015786-99-B

There should be four adapters and a small padlock and an instruction sheet.

Could you explain. That was a bit too cryptic for me.

I think what SB is saying is, what comes around goes around. Heres hoping whoever stole your EVSE has the same thing happen to them 10 fold :|
I'd keep an eye on your local CraigsList or even Ebay, with the seller in your location.

Thanks for the detailed tip. Not using those services I wouldn't know how to filter them.

This theft is particularly troubling after just losing the first bar in our 2015 Leaf. Not been a good week. ;)

I see these for sale locally in the $400 region. Not too bad. I would just order a new one and move on. Less than most insurance deductibles.

You are probably in one of the few regions where high-tech vehicle theft is a thing. Around here, nobody would even know what it is. People still ask me how do I not get electrocuted driving the Leaf in the rain... Dead serious.

https://bakersfield.craigslist.org/ - put in keywords like Tesla, Jesla, charger, charging cable
https://www.ebay.com/ - ditto, change the location on the left to say 50 or 100 miles of your zip code

All very valuable tips. Did find a used Tesla MC cable on EBay but it has the Tesla connector--not a J1772. So far, out of luck. I feel like a babe in the woods on those sites.

I would STRONGLY suggest that the thief having no clue what he took would be advertising it as such online. I would search for more general terms as well

Not exactly the same things, but just making sure you're aware of the JDapter Stub that will convert a Tesla UMC to J1772, so that you could continue to use a Tesla MC or destination charger. At $239, it's something relatively new from the same folks who made Jesla.
