Let’s take a wild guess, you’ve got your new Model S and your home charger is installed or on its way. You’ve put a few hundred miles on the clock and got past any range anxiety you had, or thought you might have. Here is our guide to the Tesla Model S Accessories you might want, or need
So Let look at some EV Accessories available from us, and other sites.
What’s a dribox? I hear you say, and if you have heard of them, you might have used on for those festive decorative lights we love to put up once a year.
Well the Dribox 330 is the perfect size for putting your UMC (universal mobile connnector) in when is raining. It will keep it dray and more importantly clean. This will enable you to charge your car anywhere condidently that your UMC will stay dry. The UMC is waterproof, but this gives you that extra layer of protection. For charing from a three pin plug, oyu might want to buy a good quality extension lead, which takes us to must have accessory number 2.
Now this is a delicate subject, you’re going to charge Tesla un a number of ways, and one of them could be a three pin plug, and you might thing that extension real from under the stairs is perfect for the job, but most are not rated for 13amp continuous dray. Unlike an Iron, for example that uses 13amps, the iron heats up to temperature then cuts off until the temperature drops. Your Tesla is going to draw max current for a few hours. You can buy an industrial extension, but the chances are they wont take the heat literally. This is where Xavelec comes in.
Xavelec produce extension leads for Tesla charging, the owner of the company is a Tesla owner and has a wealth of experience as a european traveller in his Tesla. His extension lead kits come in all sorts of combinations for use abroad and within the UK. Xavelec even make a special letterbox adaptor so you don’t have to leave a door or window open.

This is the product that started EV Accessories off and remain one ouf our top selling. We manufacture this for Tesla Model S and Model X There is no strong jackpad on the market. It has been designed to ensure pressure isonly applied to the vehicles jacking position when used on a trolley jack or four post lift. The adapter tool enables the jack saddle to maintain a safe clearance from the battery pack located in the cars floor pan. Read our blog post on how to Jack a Tesla Model S safely. Get one before you allow your Model S to be jacked with a Trolley Jack.
Designed for Professionals and Owners
Our Tesla jack pad has sold across the globe to owners and professionals. Professionals have told us they choose our jack pad due it’s construction alone. Our jack pad it the only metal tool on the market to fully distribute the load across the jack point. It does this as the only load bearing part is the base, unlike others that hold in place by magnets that transfer load to the retaining bolts. Due to it’s construction the adaptor is suitable for different size Jack saddles and professional post lifts.

Sadly it is only compatable with the facelift version of the Tesla Model S and late versions of the pre facelift that have a single bonnet catch.
Okay, we were going to stick with 10, but as the stereo in the Model S goes to 11, so will we.
Our launch safe cubby tray is the ONLY cubby draw tray on the market that is try launch safe, and wont try and escape when your floor the Model S.
It doesn’t use magenets or any extra fittings to hold it in place. We would tell you how it does it, but we really don’t want our competitiors copying it. That’s why we have registered the design to protect it.
