Charging on the Go

You will sometimes need to travel away from your preferred charging location at home or at work. Throughout the country, more and more initiatives are being taken to charge your electric vehicle on the go. In this overview you can find the different options. 

Tesla Superchargers
 

What do I need?

Superchargers have their own cable, so all you do is pick the cable up, click the button on the top which will open your charge port on your vehicle, then plug it in and you’re done!

Where to find?

Superchargers will be positioned along major routes throughout Australia, and in certain inner-city areas. Superchargers are listed in the in-car navigation for your convenience. 

How fast will I charge?

That will depend on the power provided by the point you are connecting to, public charging stations will generally advertise the amount of power they are able to provide.

Public Direct Current Stations (CHAdeMO)
 

What do I need?

To use these charging stations, you will need a CHAdeMO adapter (optional) and Supercharging enabled on your Tesla. The adapter is available as an aftermarket accessory via service centres. 

Where to find?

You can search for High Power Stations on websites such as Plugshare.com.

How fast will I charge?

CHAdeMO stations commonly charge at 50kW (90km of range per 20 minutes), but as with Supercharging, topping off the battery will reduce the charging rate.

Public Charging Stations
 

What do I need?

Some public charging stations have a Type 2 socket. A Type 2 cable can be ordered as an aftermarket accessory via your delivery specialist or Tesla service centre. Some charging stations will also offer a domestic socket. A 3 pin domestic adapter for your Mobile Connector comes as standard. Typically you will need a RFID card or app to unlock the charging stations. 

Where to find?

Mostly in towns and cities, numerous parties are setting up public charging stations to charge on the go. The most comprehensive overview can be found on plugshare.com.

How fast will I charge?

Most charging stations in Australia will provide 7 kW which adds 30 kilometers of range per hour. However, the charging rate can be as low as 12 kilometers up to 120 kilometers per hour (with dual chargers), depending on the available power of the station.
