    This is my first post as I am weeks away from receiving my model x
    Anyway I have installed a Tesla home charger. The voltage is on the high side 252.5 to 253.5 but ComEd says it’s within its limits of 240 +\- 14 volts. Will my model x charge at this voltage. Thanks for the help

    It won’t charge at that voltage, the voltage will drop with the load of the charger. Anyway no worries.

    And it will charge faster than if the voltage was on the low end of normal.

    It's on the high end of the range, but will charge. Welcome to the thread. I remember being in your shoes. I think you will love the x.

    Thank you. I’m excited to get it. Three weeks away. When this voltage issue came up my heart dropped. I’m so glad to here that it will charge. I don’t know what else I would do if I needed to bring the voltage down. Thanks again for the reassurance
