Where to buy

Tesla uses Level 2 chargers in the US. Level 2 chargers provide 240 volts of electricity2, compared to 120 volts for Level 1 chargers. Some cars, like Tesla, need a special voltage.

Why is a Level 2 charger better than a Level 1 charger?

Leviton Level 2 chargers provide significantly more power than Level 1 chargers, which means they can charge electric vehicles much more quickly. A Leviton Level 2 charger can add up to 20 miles of range per hour of charge, while a Level 1 charger can add only two to four miles of range per hour of charge. For this reason, we recommend installing a Level 2 charger if you own a Tesla vehicle. This will provide the best home charging experience and allow you to charge your car as quickly as possible.

Leviton, a company that specializes in electrical wiring and home automation products, has been making high-quality charging stations for electric vehicles since the early 2000s3. From models for general use to those designed for home use, Leviton has something for everyone. All of their devices are made with top quality materials and include safety features like overcurrent protection and thermal overload protection. We’re proud to be one of America’s leading brands!
