Our wired phone charging kit enables USB-C PD fast charging at up to 27W in the 2020 Model Y (and Model 3 after June 2020). It comes with two USB-C to USB-C cables and our custom adapter for the phone dock. You can use any combination of wireless and wired charging on either side to meet your phone charging needs.

The adapter also works with Tesla’s USB-A cables (not included) for more charging options like Apple lightning, micro-USB, and USB-C to USB-A. By popular request, the MK3 adapter now supports this Lightning to USB-C cable (sold separately) also!

Since the car only has one USB-C port in the console, to power everything, you’ll need to swap cables, run additional power from the 12V outlet in the console, get one of Jeda’s Hubs, or use a USB-C power bank to add more ports.

Our kit is designed, printed, and packaged in California by Tesla owners and fans. We strive to reduce our environmental impact by using Prusa 3D printers to make strong parts with internal structures that minimize our use of plastics and by offsetting our 3D-printer farm’s energy with Tesla Solar and Powerwalls.

Comes with two USB-C to USB-C cables, two Lightning cable adapters, dock adapter, and textured cover.

Description

The 15W wireless charging pad included with the 2020 Model Y (and Model 3 after June 2020) is great if you have a phone that supports it, but not every phone has wireless charging and many that do only support slower speeds like 7.5W or 5W. We prefer the faster (up to 27W!) speeds that a wired USB-C connection offers, so we’ve assembled a kit with two USB-C to USB-C cables and our own adapter that fits in the dock without interfering with the wireless pad.

You can use one or two cables on either side for any combination of wired and wireless charging that fits your needs. The adapter even works with Tesla’s USB-A cables for more options. Since the center console only has one USB-C and one USB-A port, you’ll need to swap cables around as needed, run power from the 12V outlet in the console, or get one of Jeda’s Hubs to add more ports.

We’ve tested the adapter with various phone and case combinations, but of course, combinations are endless. Thankfully, our capabilities with 3D printing are equally endless. Let us know if you’re having issues with fit and we’ll likely be able to adjust to accommodate.

    This was exactly what we needed for our new Model Y. Our phones do not have wireless charging capability. The initial part didn’t fit with our phone cases by 3mm. The kind folks at LivingTesla went above and beyond to work with me on printing another piece that would work for us. We are very happy with our purchase and can now plug our phones into the cables in the charging area and have them resting on the pad facing up. Perfect! Thank you!

    Hi Ordered this and received it within a week (California to Canada) – very fast shipping! It works well in my Model Y with old console. It’s a bit fiddly to install (The Youtube video makes it look very easy), but I was fiddling around with it a bit more but I finally got it installed. It comes with a small “L” shaped piece to hold a lightning cable firmly in place, but the same piece doesn’t fit with the USB-C cable. The cable once installed does move a bit so perhaps a “L” shaped piece to hold that firmly in place may help. I also may need a spacer too because it just barely fits with the case on my cell phone. I ordered a JEDA spacer and JEDA USB Hub to go along with this. Not sure if the JEDA spacer will work or not with this?

    Thanks for making this product!

      Hi Darren,
      You’re correct that the cables can move around a bit in the adapter so that it can accomodate a wide range of phones and case sizes, including those with wallets and pop sockets. We tried to make a one-size-fits-all adapter here, but we can always make adjustments by request if needed.
