Tesla Charger


No, Superchargers require a large electrical infrastructure not available in residential areas.

Yes, you can use an adapter to charge J1772 models. It is safe and effective.

You need a Tesla to J1772 adapter for AC charging or a Tesla to CCS adapter for fast DC charging of other EVs.

To charge a non-NACS model, use a NACS to J1772 adapter.

What is a Tesla Charger

What are Tesla Chargers?

Tesla Chargers are devices designed to charge Tesla vehicles, also known as NACS (North American Charging Standard) Chargers. There are three types of chargers based on charging speed: Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3.

  • Level 1 Chargers: These are the slowest, providing up to 1.8 kW, which adds about 7 miles of range per hour of charging.
  • Level 2 Chargers: These are faster, typically providing 9.6 kW or 12 kW, adding 25-40 miles of range per hour.
  • Level 3 Chargers (Superchargers): These are the fastest, delivering up to 250 kW, which can give your Tesla an 80% charge in about 30 minutes.


What's the difference between the NACS Charger and other Chargers?

The NACS Charger, developed by Tesla, stands for North American Charging Standard and supports both DC and AC charging. It’s used for all Tesla models and will be available for more non-Tesla models starting in 2025. Other brands typically use the SAE J1772 Charger, which is primarily for AC charging.


What Tesla chargers can I install at home?

You can install both Level 1 and Level 2 NACS Chargers at home:

  • Level 2 50A Hard-wired Charger: Ideal for faster charging, it offers up to 12 kW of power.
  • Level 1 15A Charger: More portable and requires no extra installation, plugging into a standard 5-15R outlet.


What's the difference between Tesla Chargers and Adapters?

Tesla Chargers are specifically designed for Tesla vehicles, ensuring efficient charging with optimized cables and software. Adapters allow Tesla vehicles to use non-Tesla chargers, such as the J1772 Charger.


What if I want to use an existing outlet for my home charger?

The most common outlet in North America is the 5-15R. A Tesla Charger with a 5-15P plug can deliver up to 1.8 kW of power.


How long does it take to charge my Tesla?

Charging time varies by model due to different battery sizes. To estimate, divide your Tesla's battery capacity by the charger's power. For example, a Tesla Model 3 with a 75 kWh battery and a 9.6 kW charger takes about 7.8 hours to charge from 0% to 100%.

Charging Time= Battery Capacity÷Charging Power ​


What's the difference between Tesla Wall Connectors and Tesla Mobile Connectors?

  • Tesla Wall Connectors: Designed for home use with a maximum power of 12 kW, offering faster charging.
  • Tesla Mobile Connectors: Portable and more cost-effective, providing up to 9.6 kW of power, suitable for both home and travel use.


Best Practices for Charging a Tesla at Home

  • If you have a garage and want faster charging, go for the 50A Home Charger, which can add up to 40 miles of range per hour.
  • If you don't need fast charging, a 15A Portable Charger is sufficient, using a common 5-15R outlet and saving on installation costs.


Step-by-Step Guide to Installing a Tesla EV Charger

Step 1: Choose a Charger Type

  • Tesla Wall Connector: Faster charging, requires professional installation.
  • Tesla Mobile Connector: Slower charging, plugs into standard outlets.

Step 2: Preparation

  • Check Electrical Capacity: Ensure your home can handle the extra load. A 240V circuit with a 60-amp breaker is recommended for chargers over 15A.
  • Choose Installation Location: Pick a spot where the cable can easily reach your car.

Step 3: Hire a Professional Electrician

A licensed electrician will assess your wiring, install the charger, get necessary permits, and test the setup. Installation costs typically range from $500 to $1,500.
