    What ameprage do you supply your Wall Charger?

    I just purchased a Gen 2 Wall Charger. I am reading in the manual that you can supply anywhere from 20A to 100A to the charger. I am reading in the manual that if I feed the charger 100A it will supply the car 80A of power. I currently have a 200A service on my 1500sq ft house. (Central AC...

    Car not charging using all Amps available

    Hi there Can’t see if someone already post about this. when I plug my Tesla 3 with Tesla wall connector, car will not use all 32 amps available, thus charging at 11km/h instead of 52km/h. As anyone experienced this? if I unplug and plug it again, one or two times, problem is fixed. But last...

    Reduce Charging Amps

    If I recall correctly, there was a way in the Model S and X to reduce the number of amps that are being drawn when charging? Is there a way to do that for the Model 3 as well? Thanks.

    House Breaker Box Maxed Out

    On Saturday, my wife is going to test drive a Model X. This will be for her car and not mine as I already have a reservation in for the Model 3. This will be our first time ever in a Tesla actually. Depending on how it goes, we might be placing an order for one. Though, who am I kidding... I...

    Charging @ 40AMP - Volt differences

    I'm curious if anyone can explain why on a 40AMP circuit there are different volts at two separate locations I use to charge my 2015 Model S. My home 240 outlet gives me 248V at 40AMP and a public charging location gives me 206V at 40AMP. See attached pictures. What would be the reason for the...

    Does charging at a lower rate give me any benefits?

    Some days I drive very little. And I have a Tesla Power charger that's charges at 48amps and usually takes 2-3 hours to charge to 90%. I've been reducing the AMPs to 10 and allowing it to charge overnight for 6 hours. I feel that if I have the time I should lower the amps and give the car a...

    Charging slower

    Hi all. I'm a new Model S owner. I remember reading somewhere that charging at a lower current is better for the battery than a higher current. So when I plug in the car to charge at night, I set the current to the minimum needed for the car to finish charging as close as possible to the time I...

    At what voltage does the Model S motor work ?

    Sorry if that was asked before, I just did not find anything. After my test drive seeing about 320KW coming out of the battery to the motor I was wondering how the cables look ! At 320 volts that would be 1000 amps ! Does anybody know at what voltage the motor runs and how they get this power...
