You have a variety of convenient charging options that can accommodate your lifestyle and driving needs. Whether you’re at home or on the road, you can charge a Tesla vehicle anywhere with access to an outlet.
We recommend charging where you park to meet most of your charging needs.
Wall Connector offers the fastest charging speed for your home or office, adding up to 44 miles of range per hour of charge. You can order a Wall Connector online and have it installed by a Tesla Certified Installer.
Mobile Connectors and Adapters
If you don’t want to install a Wall Connector, you can purchase a Mobile Connector and plug into a standard three-prong, 120 volt outlet. A 120 volt outlet will supply 2 to 3 miles of range per hour of charge. If you charge overnight and drive less than 30 to 40 miles per day, this option should meet your typical charging needs.
You can also purchase an adapter bundle and charge with other outlet types, including a 240 volt outlet. Commonly used in homes to power larger appliances, a 240 volt outlet will supply up to 30 miles of range per hour of charge.
Electric vehicle charging is offered as an amenity at many apartment, condo and office buildings nationwide. Talk to your property manager or HOA about getting chargers installed. We offer the following templates to help get these conversations started with your building manager or HOA:
- Request your apartment or condo install EV charging
- Request for approval to self-install EV charging in your deeded parking space
For property managers and owners, Commercial Charging provides a self-service option to install shared charging stations for tenants and guests. Find information on how to host Commercial Charging at your property.
When you’re traveling in your Tesla vehicle or away from where you normally park, there are three main charging options to keep your vehicle charged on the go.
Superchargers are the fastest charging option when you’re away from home, allowing you to charge your vehicle up to 200 miles in 15 minutes. Designed to get you charged and back on the road as quickly as possible, we own and operate over 50,000 global Superchargers that are accessible on a 24/7 basis, located on major routes near convenient amenities.
Destination Charging locations are comprised of popular hotels, restaurants, vineyards, resorts and other destinations that host Wall Connectors for customers to charge. There are over 40,000 Wall Connectors at Destination Charging locations in urban areas and rural locations, making it easy to charge when you arrive at your location or have a few hours to spare.
Third-party charging stations can be located through Plugshare.com. Charging stations labeled as J1772 will work with a SAE J1772 adapter and 120 volt stations labeled as 120 volt will work with the Mobile Connector. When a Mobile Connector is not in use, we recommend storing it in your vehicle for easy access. For maximum flexibility on the road and to charge from a 240 volt outlet, store an adapter bundle in your vehicle as well.
Each charging option provides different charge speeds. To view the max amperage of your Tesla vehicle, tap the lightning bolt icon on the touchscreen. To determine the max amperage of your non-Tesla electric vehicle, refer to your vehicle manufacturer’s guidance.

Before you get in your vehicle, use our Go Anywhere tool to plan future road trips. Select your vehicle's configuration and add your start and end locations. The Go Anywhere tool will then provide the fastest route, including Supercharger stops and recommended charge times.
When you’re traveling, the Trip Planner on your vehicle touchscreen will guide you to your destination. Simply enter your end location on the touchscreen and the touchscreen will zoom out to provide an overview of the route as well as the most convenient Superchargers along the way. We advise using your Trip Planner when you’re on the road or traveling long distances so that it can provide the most accurate recommended stops and charge times based on your driving.
