    Sparky's preparing for her 2nd road trip to Melby Melbs from Radelaide for dual charges install.

    MaxiCharger via Jetcharge & EVNomics J1772 kit is on its way!

    Getting really excited to start exploring!

    Tesla are quoting $3500 install - does this sound right?

    Tesla — Dual Charger with Installation

    "Please note the price includes installation. The parts will be shipped to the customer’s nearest Tesla Service Center from our Distribution Center."

    $2000 USD approx = $2700AUD + shipping/GST etc round up to $3000

    Anyone know where the extra $500 comes in?

    Cheers in advance :)

    I paid $2857 (inc GST) to upgrade from 11kW to only 16.5kW (the max with the facelifted version). You are getting 22kW for only $3500. Doesn't sound too bad to me!

    When I shipped my 15 Amp Clipper Creek charge connector, customs charged GST, 5% Import duty (USA free trade agreement doesn't always apply apparently), plus a circa $200 processing fee so I can see this happening.

    The current model with max 16.5kW is very different to the dual charger upgrade, as Richard said. With the new spec chargers it is a software update as all cars come with the full 16.5kW charger hardware. The original car came with an 11kW charger, up-gradable by the physical addition of a 2nd charger to 22kW (yes, better than the current model!). It is definitely more expensive.

    When I got my car I had the dual charger installed, and it was $2600 installed, but they have jacked their prices up significantly since then (early 2016) and the $3500 quoted sounds about right.

    If you travel off the beaten track away from superchargers then it is well worth having - I have used mine several times at 3 phase outlets and have been very glad of it - over 100km/hr charge rate makes a huge difference to stop over times. I also have a Maxicharger (purchased direct from Europe before Tim distributed them) and have been very happy with it. They had some teething problems with the new model, but I believe they are well and truly put to bed.

    I'm off to Tasmania next weekend, and the Maxicharger will get a workout there too. The dual chargers also allow you to take full advantage of Tesla 3 Phase 22kW HPWC destination chargers, of which there are more and more popping up, and quite a few in Tasmania.
