CHARGING

There are 2 main ways to charge your Tesla: AC Charging (which is slower- typically is done at home overnight) and DC Fast Charging which can give you hundreds of miles of range in less than an hour (typically used when on a road trip).  AC Charging is called Level 1 (110V) or Level 2 (240V) Charging while DC Fast Charging is called Level 3 Charging.  If you want Level 2 Charging at home, you may need an electrician.  Start by searching our forums for "Electrician" to find local businesses that our members have used in the past.  There are also interesting charging devices at the end of this page that might help you charge faster or more conviently. 

For much more details on charging, please review John W's Charging Guide.

CHARGING PLUG TYPES
There are many different plug types that are supported to charge your car.  Most of the plug types are defined by how many volts and amps they can support.  Tesla does have a bundle of connectors available for purchase here.  Below are a list plugs that are commonly encountered by our members both at home and on the road.
