Breaking and... charging? Tesla Model Y owner goes to a condo to recharge for free

Breaking and... charging? Tesla Model Y owner goes to a condo to recharge for free



Can afford Tesla, cannot afford to charge? Just go to your nearest condo I guess.

What happened?

A Tesla Model Y at Sol Acres condominium was reported to have broke the lock to a wall plug to charge using the condo’s electricity, despite not being a resident vehicle. 


Pictures in the Facebook post show that the Tesla was using a wall plug in order to charge the car. The plug was apparently locked and subsequently broken, though no signs of damage were shown in the photo.


According to a forum post on Tesla Motors Club, it might take 30-40 hours to charge the car up from empty using a 13A wall plug like in the picture.
So the owner will have to leave the car there for 30-40 hours, by which time maybe security will get wise and put clamps on the car. If that happens,  they would need to pay to remove the wheel clamp so the whole ordeal would have cost about the same plus the additional wasted time and embarassment.

Online chatter

Many presented very simple solutions to this problem.


Many also ridiculed the Tesla owner for buying such a car but being unable to charge it.

  • Clubbers watch out, your taxi driver might be as drunk as you

    Taxi drivers are our saviours when we’ve had one too many drinks too late in the night, especially when public transport has ended. But I think no matter how many drinks they've had, even this passenger can tell something has gone horribly wrong. What happened? A cyclist in Anchorvale was having a cool, relaxing ride at the PCN (Park Connector Network) when they saw a taxi that definitely was not supposed to be there. The exclamation of “Yo, what the f*** boi??” sums up



    Honda Jazz driver sideswipes a motorcyclist at Yishun, renders him comatose in ICU

    Prayers to the motorcyclist's family. What happened? A Honda Jazz cut off and side swiped a motorcyclist at Yishun Avenue 1 on 23 July 2023, around 9.30 A.M. This sent the motorcyclist off his bike and knocked his helmet off as well, leaving his head unprotected as he crashed onto the tarmac.  The motorcyclist laid still on the ground, and another rider who went past the motorcyclist as the incident took place, but stopped and went over to check on the victim.



    Content creator declares Singaporeans as the worst drivers, almost everyone agrees

    You might disagree with her, but you’ll be hard pressed to find much evidence against her case. What happened? Content creator and entrepreneur Wendi Chan, better known as @pinkkittywendi has been stirring the pot by making the bold but likely true statement that Singaporeans are the worst drivers and/or the most inconsiderate drivers in the world. If you are angered at the above statement, I present to you all our existing articles. And SGRV. She uses the example of



    PAB rider gets run over after ignoring stop line at a junction, demands over $5000 in compensation

    The brakes on the car must be good, rider was wearing no protection and still escaped unscathed. What happened? On 11 September 2023, at Yishun Industrial Street 1 (because OF COURSE it was at Yishun), a food delivery rider on a PAB (Power Assisted Bicycle) ignored a stop line at a junction and was subsequently hit by a car. The car was going at around 30km/h and unable to avoid the rider, who was already onto the road and stopped moving like a deer in headlights. U
