Charging compatibility

Any Level 2 charger will be compatible. You can charge at up to 48A, but it will accept any lower amperage as well. You won't be able to use the same Level 3 DC fast chargers as BMW uses CCS while Tesla can only use CHAdeMO via an adapter or their own proprietary Superchargers.

I think @Lyon missed a detail and may accidentally be giving bad information. You may not have noticed that @mcmcmc is from London. They do not generally use the J1772 (sometimes called Type 1) format charging plugs in Europe. It’s usually a Type 2 plug. The good news is that all of the European Teslas use the Type 2 as their standard charge port on the car, so it wouldn’t even need an adapter. At the European Tesla stores, they do have the CHAdeMO adapters that convert to the Type 2 plug.
