Tesla Destination Charger

From Unofficial Zero Manual

Tesla destination chargers are a network of AC chargers with a proprietary plug.

They are typically offered as a complementary service for a hotel or restaurant or other destination.
For Tesla owners, these are relatively slow chargers compared to their Tesla Supercharger DCFC network, but for a Zero, this can mostly charge the bike at the maximum rate supported.
Typically, the station offers 40, 60, or 80A service at 220V AC, yielding 9kW, 13kW, or 17kW.

The connector and protocol are very similar to J1772 but do require an adapter to initiate the process correctly.
