Tesla Charging At Home

Tesla Charging At Home

Tesla Charging At Home is mostly Tesla Owner to choose for charging. Because when they do Tesla Charging At Home, they can charge it at night at home, and don’t need to go out for public charging.
Tesla Charging Basics: What to Know & Why You Care
Each level of charging delivers different charging speeds. Different Tesla configurations have a maximum charge power they can accept. Choosing the right Tesla charger minimizes hassle and installation costs. And maximizes your enjoyment of electric driving. Keep reading to make charging levels as easy as 1, 2, 3.
First, an “EV Charger” Can Refer to Two Different Things
Internal or “On-Board” Charger
The on-board charger is a component inside the car. The OBC manages internal power flow to safely charge your EV battery.
External Charger or “EVSE”
The box-and-cord device has a technical name. “Electric vehicle supply equipment,” or EVSE. The EVSE delivers power from the grid (or other source like solar panels) to your EV’s on-board charger in the first place. Still, everyone tends to call the EVSE a “charger.” So will I for the rest of this post.
How Fast Can I Charge?
Depends on the charging level, the maximum power output of the charging station and max power intake of your EV. There are 3 levels of chargers:
Level 1 (120 volt) charging
Level 2 (240 volt) charging
Level 3 (480 volt) Supercharging or DC fast charging
What ARE Charging Levels, Exactly?
Levels 1, 2, and 3 chargers run on different levels of voltage.
Why Level 2 Is Best for Home Charging
240V level 2 chargers provide a bigger “pipeline” for electricity to flow to your Tesla. They can charge up to 15 times faster than trickle chargers. Tesla Mobile Connector, Wall Connector and the wireless Tesla charging station are different types of Level 2 chargers.
Level 2 is the level for you if any of these things are true:
You don’t want to (or can’t) rely heavily on Supercharging stations
Your electric utility offers time of use (TOU) discounts for nighttime charging
You want to use the self-charging upgrade
You really want to enjoy driving the heck out of your Tesla
Why Not Have a Supercharger at Home?
Other than persistent rumors of a secret home SuperCharger in San Diego, there aren’t any home Superchargers. Why? You could very well purchase another Tesla for the costs associated with providing enough electricity to your home to deliver 145 kW of power.
