    Has anyone hooked up the wall charger to 110? My garage is detached and he ground is frozen so I cannot get 220 run till spring. The tax deduction for ev charges expires in two days but since I have the wall charger I'm curious if it's possible to wire it with 110. I see in the manual it shows lower amp options all the way down to 12 amps but it looks like it suggests two hits. Anyone tried it with a single hot wire?

    Perhaps not the answer you are asking for but for informational purposes I get 3 mph on a 110 wall outlet, 17 mph using a NEMA 14-30 in a dryer outlet and 30 mph on my NEMA 14-50 in my garage.

    I was more curious on booking the wall charger up at 110 so I can claim the tax credit until I can run my 220 since that will be after the credit expires.

    The tax credit for charging equipment is subject to AMT, meaning that is unlikely that people of sufficient means to buy a Tesla would get any benefit from the credit.

    We just have a very small house payment and that's it for monthly payments and no kids. We have not done AMT before but I did have a job change that helped justify the tesla. Hopefully we still avoid it.

    The wall connector cannot be installed on a 120 circuit.

    I used 110 for a week this summer while staying at a beach house. It worked fine. We did not drive much,about 30 miles per day. Left with 100%charge.

    Charging off 120 works fine. The UMC supports that. The Wall Connector does not list it as a supported voltage.

    Definitely check the AMT issue above. Its usually better to take the $7,500 EV purchase credit in a different tax year as the EV charger installation credit. In our case (like a most other Tesla buyers) the AMT issue yielded ZERO tax crecit for our EV charger installation credit.

    YMMV
