    New Model X and S Peak Charge Rates

    I have a 2017 Model X and want to upgrade to the new model. The last article I found on peak charge rates for the Model X and S was in 2020 saying that Tesla increased the peak charge rates to 225. Does anyone know if the new models have the same peak charge rates or if they are higher?

    Charging keeps stopping.

    Hi all. Our Tesla Model 3 long range has suddenly started to do some strange charging. We plug it in when back from work (down to 17%) and it seems that charging starts fine, but after about 2-3 minutes charging it stops again. We have not set any time for charging to be complete or anything...

    290mi at max charge after 6 months

    My 2021 MYP just turned 6 months old, I observed the range of charge to the border between “daily” and “trip” decreased over time, from 271 to 259. Today, I played around on the app and moved the bar to max, and it shows 290, vs 303, so I lost 12-13mi in 6 months, expected? Since delivery, i...

    Level 1 vs. Level 2 Charging Cost?

    Hey guys, I just purchased my brand new Model Y 2 weeks ago and I’m down to 500 miles of the 1,000 I was given for the referral bonus or whatever. I’m stuck between upgrading to a level 2 charging solution or staying at level 1. I drive about 30-40 miles per day and I usually charge about 30-40...

    Extension cord needed, apartment charging in garage, outlet on ceiling

    I live in an apartment that has a regular outlet in the garage that I could use to charge my Model 3. My only dilemma is that the outlet is on the ceiling so I will be needing an extension cord. I DON'T plan to leave the cord hanging. I will be securing it to the wall. I should only need around...

    Vancouver, Canada: Rent your CHAdeMO adapter for one week?

    Hello fellow Vancouverites! I'm doing a road trip up to Smithers, BC around Canada Day this year (2021), and the new Tesla Superchargers don't seem like they'll be ready in time. It looks like there are a bunch of CHAdeMO 50kW chargers on the way up north but I can't buy an adapter anywhere...

    Tesla repeatedly charging me for past charging sessions

    Tesla has been repeatedly charging me for charging sessions that I've already paid for in the past. To be specific: About 2-3 weeks ago, I had 2 separate charging sessions costing $1.00 and $2.25, each, at a Tesla destination charger. These were charged to my CC and paid for. Starting last...

    Newbie Questions: 2021 M3 SR+ SuperCharging Speeds

    Tesla Newbie here expecting our M3 SR+ early next month. We went with the SR+ due to price (can't really afford the LR) and I am now noticing more of the differences other than the range. Few questions I am hoping other M# owners can help with: 1) I notice the SR+ has a slower supercharging max...

    Change charge rate from app please!

    This is THE most tedious aspect of having our Tesla. Please Elon, allow us to change the amps remotely rather than having to head out to the car. Please pile in to lend support so that this somehow makes its way onto Elon's radar. Cheers.

    Charging time Tesla charger vs Standard 50amp outlet

    Hi! I am getting a new Model Y in a few weeks and am deciding between the Tesla charger, the Juicebox ,or sticking with a regular 50 amp 240vac outlet. Does the tesla charger/juicebox charge any faster than the 50amp standard plug? OR does it just give you more features? Thank you

    Model S 100D - Full charge - 300 miles - should be 335?

    Hi, Just received my 2017 100D Model S and loving it so far. I've noticed that when I plug into my home tesla charger (240v) that fully charged only goes to 300 miles. I know the car is advertised to get 335 miles. I've double-checked to make sure it is set to charge to 100% and I can certainly...

    Getting billed for using a normal looking wall connector?

    At an apartment complex, there are a bunch of wall connectors (like what is in the tesla store). They were free to charge on them for a few months. On my last visit, I was billed $1.50 to my Tesla account. Apparently these wall connectors are "destination chargers" now capable of billing. This...

    battery charging, is this possible?

    Is it possible to plug your car into a standard 120v or 240v outlet, use the Tesla app on your phone to set when you want the car to charge at what capacity and have the ability in the app to change the capacity? I assume all this is probably possible with a smart charger, but do you have this...

    Hey guys, I just picked up my 2021 M3SR+ last week and debating whether I should buy the Chademo adapter or wait for the CCS Combo adapter to release in North America. I live in Surrey, British Columbia and the nearest Supercharger to me is a 15 minute drive whereas the closest BC hydro...

    1-2 Times A Week Charging

    Hello! I am about to pull the trigger on purchasing a Tesla but am in a living situation where home charging will not be a choice. I have several CHAdeMO chargers via EVgo near my home, and with my driving patterns I see myself having to charge there 1-1.5 times a week with the adapter. The...

    Is there a way to start charging based on my solar panels outputting energy?

I have Enphase Energy micro inverters and I can easily tell when they are generating enough power to not...

    Supercharger support: Total fail

    Once again, Tesla’s horrific customer service has demonstrated itself. Such a shame, given how exemplary there were when they first launched. I took a road trip this past weekend. About 2 hours after my 2nd supercharger stop, I received an alert, both on my IC screen and the main screen that...

    Using dual TT-30s for charging?

    Has anyone used a Y-connector with dual TT-30s, one on each phase? It should nominally deliver 30A at 240V, so charge at 24A. I could make one, and they have them for sale on Amazon. Yes, I know the setup is not to code/"legal", and one could touch a hot plug. That's not my question. Has...

    120V vs 240V for Battery Health?

    RV parks filling the charging gaps?

    BMS Drift - does it really matter?

    So I have seen numerous posts about range decreasing and the wonky BMS, but no one has actually addressed the problem with that. Of course, that's assuming you don't have a faulty battery. I feel like in those cases you'd be able to tell pretty easily. Does having a BMS that's drifted cause...
