Tesla Wall Connector
Anywhere. Seriously. Where there’s an outlet, you can charge. The type of outlet or charging station will determine how fast you can charge.
The most convenient time to charge is often at night, when your car is parked in your garage. Simply plug in when you arrive home. Model S will charge right away or at the time you’ve scheduled using the Touchscreen or a smart phone. Long before morning, your car will be charged and ready for the next adventure.
Tesla recommends installing the Wall Connector or a 240-volt outlet.
Charge at Night at Home
Charging at night isn’t just convenient, it may be less expensive. Many utility companies offer Time of Use rate plans featuring prices that vary based on demand. At night, demand is lowest and prices drop.
The Touchscreen lets you program a charging schedule to take advantage of these low rates. Plug in when you get home and Model S will begin charging automatically at the time you specify.
Using Your Mobile Connector/240-volt – 29 MILES OF RANGE PER HOUR OF CHARGE
When your Model S arrives, your Delivery Experience Specialist will explain how to use the Mobile Connector. You’ll find that charging your car is a lot like plugging in your cell phone.
One end of the Mobile Connector plugs into the Charge Port and the other end plugs into an outlet. Two outlet adapters are included: one for a standard household outlet and a second adapter for a 240-volt outlet. Many additional adapters are available for purchase.
We recommend charging from a 240-volt outlet rather than a 110-volt outlet. A 240-volt outlet provides a lot more power than a standard outlet and will charge your car faster.
THE FASTEST WAY TO CHARGE AT HOME – 58 MILES RANGE PER HOUR OF CHARGE
A Wall Connector is installed on a 240 volt circuit and can be supplied with up to twice the amperage as an outlet. At maximum amperage it supplies two times more power than the Single Charger can process. This is where Dual Chargers come into play, doubling the charging capacity to 20 kW to match the output of the Wall Connector.
SUPERCHARGE! – 300 MILES RANGE PER HOUR OF CHARGE
The Tesla Supercharger recharges Model S quickly. Super quickly. Superchargers are for refueling quickly on road trips. A Supercharger can replenish half the battery in as little as 20 minutes. Superchargers will be positioned at convenient locations along major interstates throughout the country.
Driving On Solar
Owning an electric Model S helps reduce your carbon footprint and improve our environment for generations to come. Installing solar panels takes zero emission transportation a step further by replacing electricity generated by traditional power plants with clean, renewable solar energy.
