What Is Teslas Magic Dock (CCS1) Adapter?
All the Superchargers have a NACS adapter in general to charge the Tesla cars. However, the brand thinks of non-Tesla users and made a separate universal adapter called CCS1 that can be used on other EVs including Hyundai, Ford, and so on.
Due to its unique design and double charging dock, people often address it as the Magic Dock of Supercharger. If you compare the NACS and CCS1 adapters, here’s what you’ll find:
- CCS1 is a little thicker with 2 charging plugs.
- NACS is a little thin with a single charging plug.
The Magic Dock adapter works exactly like the usual Supercharger but with a CCS1-type adapter to use on non-Tesla EVs.
