    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 jurisdiction, you may need to take out a permit for an installation of this type. Also, your installation may differ so please use caution when making material and installation decisions.

    Material used: 24’ 6 gauge 3-wire cable with ground, NEMA 14-50 receptical rated for 50 amps, metal wall box and cover, 50 amp two-pole circuit breaker, (2) 3/4” Romex connectors, nail plates, Sheetrock screws, joint compound.

    Tools used: Reciprocating power saw, cordless power drill, corded stud and joist drill, 5/8 wood drill bit with extensions, stick ruler, level, flathead and Phillips screw drivers, utility knife, wire strippers, stud finder, pencil.

    Forgot to mention that you’ll also need a good multimeter.
