Tesla has decided to drop the mobile charger as part of the standard accesssories with its all-electric cars.
The decision was noticed Saturday and later confirmed by Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
The social media reaction came swiftly to news of dropping as standard equipment of the $275 Gen 2 Mobile Connector Bundle, which is, interestingly, out of stock.
