    How Long Does Wall Connector Installation Take? I'm WFH, Need a General Estimate for How Long Power Will Be Out.

    Hi Everybody, I think I'm going to go in and buy a Model 3LR, assuming I can get it in time before the tax credit potentially goes away. Anywho, I'm wondering how long a Wall Connector installation would take. It's not so much the amount of time that the overall process takes that matters for...

    Model 3 Not Charging with Siemens vg2 charger

    I recently purchased a 2023 Model 3 and to my surprise it won't charge with my Siemens vg2 charger. I had this charger previously installed (and it works) with my other EVs, but when I try to charge my Tesla with a J1772 adapter, it errors, returning "Charging equipment communication error." I...

    Tesla Charging Equipment in Australia

    Hi All, I'm expecting a Model Y later this year and I've been tossing up over which charging equipment for portable charging I really need.

    Home Charger Overcurrent?

    I'm hoping someone with more knowledge of this sort of thing than me can offer some insight. A week ago my 9 month old M3 experienced a major electrical failure while charging.

    Should I avoid an electrician who asks a homeowner to apply for a permit?

    Hi, I've been getting quotes from electricians on the Tesla website to install a wall connector. Some wouldn't apply for permits. Some wouldn't show up on the inspection day. If I apply for a permit myself that makes me responsible for all the work. Should I only hire an electrician who...

    Is installing a charger in a condo worth the high cost?

    My quoted price was $5k (including a charger, permit, labor, etc). I'm hesitant since I live within a walking distance of superchargers and other public chargers. But my guess is they are pretty busy. (1) Is that price normal for an underground condo parking structure in LA? (2) The...
