    Charger popping Circuit

    What an F'n hack job. Please start over with professional help. OMG. Too many dangerous things to even mention. Seriously.

    Snippiness 2.0

    I have to chuckle because TJ carelessly asked an ambiguously-worded question, but was careful to use the "woke" pronoun "their" in his response.

    Electrician confusion with 14-50 outlet

    He has two service disconnects. Up to 6 are allowed before a single main is required.

    Electrician confusion with 14-50 outlet

    Your two main service breakers, I believe, are fixed mounted and not replaceable with quad breakers. I'm not sure 50/40 combos are even in existence. Also, GFI type breaker may be required for EV charging in your area. Best bet is to have a load calc done on paper (or logged with a meter) and...

    Level two charger power consumption while maintaining desired level of charge

    Are there times when you are not allowed to use your oven, your A/C or your clothes dryer? Of course not. Charge whenever you want as long as the installation of the EVSE meets electrical codes, and is on your electric meter.

    14-50 installation

    Ask the electrician if the neutrals should be separated from the ground wires. This panel looks like a sub-panel.

    14-50 installation

    Yes. Don't pay him. I assume you mean 14-50, right? What kind of wire did he install? Pix of panel please.

    Zero battery indicated all of sudden

    Wow! That is an amazing first post.

    240V electrical noise causes charging problem

    You got it. Your GPU's switching mode power supply is injecting harmonics back onto the line, and Tessie does not like it. You could introduce an isolation transformer (or online UPS) between your wall outlet and GPU to quench the harmonics, but maybe a higher quality GPU power supply would be...

    Extension cord for charging at 110V?

    Also, never coil up the extension cord or it will exacerbate any heating. I did that with my 2012 Leaf and a 100 foot extension cord. Nearly too hot to hold after just a few hours of charging.

    Extremely Disappointed With Model S Range When Driving on the Highway at 35F

    Maybe see Munro's videos for massive changes made to new Plaid MS.

    No 80 Amp Charging Anymore?

    My August 2017 MS 100D has 72 amp charging. AP2.5 also (now HW3.0).

    Home circuit breaker 208 volts?

    People, there is no problem here. Vast majority of residential, hotel and condos are 208 volt grounded WYE to each apartment/condo. 120V from each phase to ground and 208 between the phases. Each resident gets 2 of the three phases. This is completely normal and is perfectly acceptable. It...

    NEMA 14-30 with 30A breaker

    And you only have a 100 amp panel, already with a 60 amp breaker presumably for A/C or whatever is below the load center panel..

    Replacing 50 amp breaker with 60 amp?

    Lotta people think the NEC is a design book. It is not. It is the bare minimum requirements for safety.
