    If I recall correctly, there was a way in the Model S and X to reduce the number of amps that are being drawn when charging?

    Is there a way to do that for the Model 3 as well?

    Thanks.

    Yes. On the bottom of the charge screen when plugged in.

    Oh great! I didn't see it on the Tesla app -- I guess in-car screen only.

    Right— if you ever need to manually adjust amps, which should be rare, you would be doing it when you plug the car in.

    Elon has hinted some time ago on Twitter that they might add the functionality to the app. This would mean it would be included in the API which opens up possibilities like matching your charge rate to PV production.

    But as always, in Elon time.
