How Tesla is charging its cars at home?
There are a few different types of Tesla chargers, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages. We reviewed them along with alternative Tesla home chargers, where our customers sometimes favor ChargePoint. Here's a rundown of your options:
Standard Tesla Wall Connector
The standard Tesla wall connector is the most common type of charger. It plugs into a 240-volt outlet and can provide up to 16 amps of current, for a charging rate of up to 7.5 kilowatts. This charger is included with every new Tesla, and most owners find it more than adequate for their needs.
However, the standard wall connector can be quite bulky, and it's not always easy to find a 240-volt outlet near your parking spot. If you don't have a good spot to install the connector, or if you need to charge your Tesla quickly, you may want to consider one of the following alternatives.
Tesla Mobile Connector
The Tesla mobile connector is a portable charger that can be used anywhere there's an outlet. It plugs into a standard 120-volt outlet and provides up to 16 amps of current, for a charging rate of up to 1.9 kilowatts. The mobile connector is included with the purchase of a Tesla, and it can also be purchased separately.
This charger is convenient because it's small and easy to take with you, but it can't provide as much power as the standard wall connector. It's a good option if you need to charge your Tesla on the go, but it's not as efficient as a home charger.
