    When I charge at home do I need to...?

    I have a Bosch L2 charger 30A or 32A, not sure which. I have always manually adjusted the 48A on the app or screen to 30A before plugging in at home. Do I need to adjust it? Will it auto adjust if I just plug it in? My Rivian R1S has no option to adjust amps and I just plug that in and it...

    2017 S 100D extremely long charging times for last 10%

    Long time lurker here, but have always found answers with a search. But not for this so... I have a 2017 S100D with 93k miles on it. The battery is at about 86% of original range (283 miles vs 330 new). The problem is when I need to charge to full, that last 10-15% of range takes much longer...

    Can I share a charger and have my neighbor bill me?

    Can I share my neighbor's charger and have my neighbor bill me? We live in a condo building, and the cost of installing a wall charger would be prohibitive.

    Considering buying a 2nd MYP. Add separate second charger or split existing?

    Love my wife's 23 MYP so much I'm thinking of getting one of my own when my ICE lease is up in 3 months.

    Is level 1 charging a viable long-term option?

    Busting 2 myths about saving money when home charging in Hawaii

    Hi all, Here are the 2 myths I have heard about saving money when home charging in Hawaii: 1. It is cheaper to charge your Tesla with the slow, standard mobile connector (110/120V @ 15A) than with a 50A (240V) socket using a NEMA 14-50 adapter or Tesla Wall Connector 2. It is cheaper to charge...
