However my understanding is the new Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) batteries support a higher Model 3 RWD charging rate. I was told by Tesla that when I receive delivery of my Model 3 next month, it will be from the Freemont factory, which has switched from the older Nickel Cobalt batteries to the new LFP batteries for the Model 3 RWD. I've heard from several sources that Model 3 with LFP batteries supports a faster charging rate. Just not sure if that would translate to me seeing a difference the a 40 AMP Mobile charger with a built in 14-50 plug. If it does, I will then purchase the 40 AMP version of the Mobile charger.

I think you may be mixing up a couple of things (or tesla may be mixing up what you are asking).

SR+ tesla model 3s level 2 charge at 32amp maximum... full stop. There is no tesla SR+ / Standard range / LFP that charges at faster than 32amps on Level 2 home charging. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.

Now, its possible that a LFP model 3s can DC fast charge (which has zero to do with your mobile adapters / wall adapters etc) faster than non LFP SR model 3s, but I havent been following that.

With that being said, for your home charging, the car will not charge faster than 32amps. Period.

Edit... I didnt see that @ucmndd said basically the same thing. I wasnt attempting to pile on, but will leave my response here.

The model 3 RWD does have the new LFP battery the LR and Performance have the NCA battery.
My car which is the new RWD build date of 24 April 2022 has the LFP and only supports 32A max.
Whoever is telling you that it takes a faster charging rate does not know what they are talking about.

Read the link I posted earlier, that is right from Tesla
