The Best Way to Charge

Charging your Tesla is as easy as charging your phone. Just plug in when you get home and when you wake up, your Tesla will be fully charged and ready to go.

Included

Mobile Connector and Adapters

Get up to 29 miles of range per hour with the included standard charging equipment:

  • Mobile Connector (20 foot cord length)
  • Adapter for standard 110 volt household outlets (NEMA 5-15)
  • Adapter for higher power 240 volt outlet (NEMA 14-50)
  • Adapter for public charging stations (SAE J1772)

You can simply plug into an outlet to charge. Installing a 240 volt outlet provides more power than a standard outlet to charge your Tesla faster.

Find an Electrician

We recommend working with a licensed electrician to install your 240 volt outlet or Wall Connector before the delivery of your Tesla. Your electrician will be able to assess power availability for the Wall Connector's amperage levels and ensure a safe installation.

Charge at Night

Your power company may offer special rates to electric vehicle owners. By charging at night when electricity demand is lowest, power companies can manage peak demand more efficiently, and pass that savings on to you. Contact your power company to see if you qualify, then schedule your Tesla to charge at specific times using the center display.

Charge Faster

Most outlets are either standard 110 volt or higher powered 240 volt outlets. We recommend installing a 240 volt, 40 amp outlet, also called a NEMA 14-50, to charge up to five times faster than a standard outlet at home. Pairing a Tesla Wall Connector and a High Amperage Upgraded Charger allows your Model S to charge at up to 72 amps, which translates into 52 miles of charge per hour.

Vehicle on-board charger Voltage / Current Power Model S
miles per hour
Model X
miles per hour
NEMA 5-15 Standard 120 V / 12 A 1.4 kW 3 2
NEMA 14-50 Standard 240 V / 40 A 9.6 kW 29 25
Wall Connector @ 60 amp Standard 240 V / 48 A 11.5 kW 34 30
Wall Connector @ 90 amp High Amperage Upgrade 240 V / 72 A 17.3 kW 52 45

*Wall Connectors can be configured to almost any power supply. A 60 amp circuit breaker best matches Tesla vehicles with the standard on-board charger. A 90 amp circuit breaker provides the fastest possible home charging speeds for vehicles with the High Amperage Charger Upgrade.

App Controls

The Tesla App allows you to check charging progress in real time and start or stop charging. You can also use it to vent or close the panoramic roof, lock or unlock remotely and heat or cool the cabin to your preferred temp before you even get in.
