    Home charging location of Charger

    Hi Friends, I’m in the midst of trying to figure out a location for my charger. Unfortunately my house driveway is less that ideal for locating a charger. Distance from the electric meter to the proposed locations have been too long to be covered by pod point or EO without exceptionally...

    Tesla Wall Connector (Level 2 charger) "out of stock"

    Not off to a very good start as a new customer. I take delivery next week in Maryland of a Model 3 and the recommended Tesla Wall Connector/Level 2 charger is "out of stock" on the website and at the dealer. But there is a catch. If you use the Tesla recommended electrician, then they will...

    Tesla requires 60A Disconnect switch w/charger?

    I received a quote from a Tesla authorized installer today and he says Tesla requires a 60A disconnect switch within 5’ of the home charger? Is this true? The reason I ask is it added $425.00 to the quote (not including the charger) vs just going with just a 50A and a NEMA 14/50 plug.

    Using 3-phase for faster charging US import Tesla (1-phase).

    This is my approach to build a charger for those, who have Tesla US imports. First I have built that for Nissan Leaf my Wife owns. As these charge via single-phase charger, using 3-phase 16A (typical across Europe) gives no good speed (all you have is 3,3 kW, and phase is fully loaded, so...

    Andersen scraps WiFi?

    The charger we were pretty set on buying, the Andersen A2 Tethered, has suddenly become much less appealing. According to their website, as of July 2019 WiFi is no longer a supported way to connect the charger to the network - only ethernet is supported. We’ve just had our house installed by...

    DIY mobile charger installation - NEMA 14-50 240V 50amp

    Just wanted to share a video I made of my own DIY installation of a charging station for my new Model 3. It’s good for charging at up to 40 amps if your charger supports it. I took queues from other threads here while making material and installation decisions. NOTE: Depending on your...

    60A Breaker -> 4 gage or 6 gage wire?

    I have received a few quotes to install my Tesla Wall Connector for my model 3. The biggest difference between the quotes is wire size. All electricians have their reasons, i’d like to know what you think My setup: 60A circuit breaker 48A max charging amps (wall connector setting #9) 35 ft...

    Charging Model X

    So sorry guys. I'm new Tesla owner Model X. Maybe it has been posted before but can anyone tell me if it is possible to create home charging with the cable directly connected to high voltage power supply (in Dutch it would be "krachtstroom") 380/400 V? So it would be on one end the type 2 outlet...

    A great looking home charger for Tesla

    There are quite a few home chargers out there, but there is one particular design which I am fond of - the Andersen A1 Home Charge Point (Premium Home Charge Points For Your Electric Car | Andersen). It fit's the premium Tesla looks and does a decent charge if you want to charge your car at home...

    Tesla Wall Connector - Any way to attach this to a pole coming out of the ground?

    So we're debating wether or not if we should replace our current wall charger with a Tesla Wall Connector, but if we do I would love it if I could move it away from the house and closer to the parking space itself. But to do so I would need to put something in place that the Wall Connector could...

    Tesla Wall Charger installed!

    Just had my Tesla Wall Charger installed in my garage at home. Only one step left.. Delivery of my Model X 90D, hopefully next week! I had the The Electrical Works install it for me. They did a nice clean job. They were recommended through Tesla's website. I highly recommend.

    Solution to charge your Model 3 if you don't have any garage?

    I was walking in my neighborhood (Noe Valley, San Francisco) this morning and came across this plug coming out of the sidewalk. The plus was charging a Mercedes. I guess the owner used the underground pipe to connect the plug to his house. It's a pretty discret solution that doesn't leave a...

    Question about EMW JuiceBox, permit approval, Lab certification.

    Hi All. As you've seen from some of my other posts, I'm in the early stages of preparing to buy an EV. I'm considering all the factors, including permitting, running new wiring, and picking out an EVSE. I've heard a lot of good things about the EV Motorwerks JuiceBox, but one issue I've heard is...

    Use HPWC with 14-50 - instructions?

    I'm thinking now I'd like to keep the free supplied adapter cable in the car with me and get the HPWC for home, even though we just installed the 14-50 plug. I don't mind using the HPWC at 40 amps still so was hoping there was a way to just wire it with a plug into the 14-50 outlet instead of...

    Nice to see Home Depot supporting the EV game.

    Received this in the morning spam - the Home Depot "Special Buy of the Day" - a Level 2 home charger for $399. Any awareness is good awareness, one might say, from a 'more the merrier' perspective. GE EV Charger Indoor/Outdoor Level-2 DuraStation Wall Mount with 18 ft. Cord-EVDSWGH-CP01 -...
