I tried googling this but can’t find a clear answer Wall charger speed for 2021+ Model S

I have been using my dryer buddy to charge using my mobile charger at 24 Amps without any issues for over 2 years now. It charges the car at 20-21 miles per hour. If I were to get a 50 or 60 amp circuit put in with Tesla Wall charger gen 3 what speed should I expect? How many miles per hour?

Tesla has this information on their website:


(Relevant text from the above link)

TL ; DR - 50 amp circuit on a model S approx 34 miles per hour, 60 amp circuit on a model S = approx 41 miles per hour.
============================

Vehicle Charging Speeds​

For the fastest home charging, install Wall Connector with a circuit breaker that matches your vehicle’s onboard charger capabilities. To view the max amperage of your Tesla, tap the lightning bolt icon on the touchscreen.

For unique power situations or when power may be limited, Wall Connector can also be installed with lower amperage circuit breakers to support almost any existing electrical system.

Please refer to the table below for charging speeds for each power level option.

With my 60 amp circuit and wall connector, 11kw, 48 amp I get about 40 miles per hour.
