I'm going to install a Wall connector soon. I have two choices between 60 amp vs 80 amp. Can anyone recommend which amp I should go with?
What car do you have, and do you plan on buying another Tesla anytime soon?
No model 3 can charge from a home charger faster than 48 amps. You need a 60 amp circuit to charge at 48 amps. If you are getting an electrician to install it, and getting a permit, they will need to do a load calculation, so you can not assume that you would be able to install an 80amp circuit (easily) anyway. There is zero benefit for you to install the 80amp circuit, unless you are planning on load sharing with another tesla at some point.
I would plan on the 60 amp circuit (which charges at 43-44 miles per hour). Even with the most narrow time of use plans, you will still have enough speed to charge your commute in just a few hours in the middle of the night, even if you drive 200 miles per day.
"jjrandorin" Thank You very much for the answer. I've been waiting for my Model 3 that I ordered since the end of SEP. so I wanted to have everything ready when it arrives.
The reason for 80 amp, I'm planing to add a second Wall connector within a year. I don't like having many cables running in my garage.
Is 80amp a good plan for two wall connectors? : )
