    What is the added bonus of charging from a Tesla charger vs just plugging into the 240v outlet? If the little faster charg rate is not needed, is the other main benefit charging during off-hours for lower electricity charge? Trying to decide if buying the EV charger for 220v outlet is worth...

    Hi everyone In my garage I have a three pin (round) outlet which is 15A 240V (see picture). What Tesla adapter do I use? Also, my understanding is I should get around 12-15 miles charge an hour? Has anyone else had similar results? Thanks Matt

    I am moving to Pasadena, CA soon and I checked out their local power company (Pasadena Water & Power) online. I can't find anything about discounted "Time of Use" rate plans for home EV charging. Is there anyone on here that lives in Pasadena that can help me figure this out? It's looking...

    It is so refreshing to meet someone that takes pride in their work and who is also honest and genuine. So I just had my Wall Charger installed in my building (multi unit). I got quotes from several electricians including those on the Tesla referral page and finally found an honest electrician. I...

    Hello Folks, I am currently a Chevy Volt owner and have been for almost 4 years. I have been very pleased with the car as it has exceeded all the promises Chevy made regarding the vehicle. I have used the regular 110 outlet to charge my Volt as it has been more than adequate for my needs...

    Hi Everyone, I live in a condo and my HOA will not allow me to increase the power to my person outlet in my parking spot. Currently I have a single dedicated receptacle that is running 120v at 20 amps to a dedicated 20 amp breaker. I’m wondering how many miles per hour of charge I would get...
  10. Model 3: Charging
    Has anyone found their 20' UMC or 25' HPWC cables to be too short to reach the car? I don't have a garage, and I have a reserved parking space in front of the house. If I install a NEMA or HPWC outlet on the house exterior, I would still need 35 to 40 feet of cable to run from the wall, along...

    I've read that "a plugged in Tesla is a happy Tesla" and plan to have my Model 3 plugged in every night at home. My workplace is going to be installing Tesla chargers soon however, which would allow me to charge at the office on the days that I'm there and save the electricity on my home bill...
