I would consult an electrician before buying anything.
Great advice. I recommend a 20 amp circuit with the following:

$299 from Quick Charge Power Go-Cable
(tm) is the super flexible and super lightweight low cost 240 volt / 20 amp portable charge cable (EVSE) for your EV sold in North America or Japan.
Full 25 foot cable length !!!
Requires a 208- 240 volt wall outlet, with a minimum 20 amp circuit.
Provides up to 3.8kW of power to your EV.
Equipped with NEMA L6-20P
wall plug.Optional adaptors for $29 each: NEMA 14-50P
(RV parks... this is the home outlet recommended by Tesla) NEMA 10-30P
NOTE: the NEMA 14-50P can be modified to be safely used with NEMA 14-20P
or NEMA 14-30P
(newer dryers) by removing the neutral pin. Any qualified electrician can do this.
Other popular plugs available via special order.
