Charging your Tesla

Now that I have had my Tesla for a month I have come to learn some things about charging.

If you aren’t planning on putting in the home charger at first, the mobile charger will work, but there are some things you should get. The main thing is the NEMA 5-20 adapter from Tesla. This will get you an extra couple miles an hour with out having to change much. Most grades have a NEMA 5-20 plug. If is doesn’t it is a pretty simple to swap out on a 20 amp breaker.

Then you will want to get an extension cord for travels and an adapter. This should get you pretty set until you can make it to a Supercharger.

I found this forum on Telsa. Lots of good info here.

Finally got a smart car

Super excited to have purchased a Tesla Model Y. And to be honest I didn’t purchase it because it was electric, I did it for the autopilot.

The electric was one of the main reason I have been hesitant for years. I haven’t been ready to change everything I have known about driving. I really just wanted the safety of the car, and myself, paying attention to the road.

I am not sure why other carmakers don’t understand this, it the software that brings a lot of people to this car, but then we stay for the hardware.

And I have to say, it’s a lot of fun to drive. The acceleration is something I have only felt in high sports cars. So it is a good thing all the safety features are there.

Autopilot is awesome! It takes some getting used to, but once you and the car learn each other it is very helpful. Make sure to keep a hand on the wheel or you will lose it till your next drive.

So far I am really loving this car. The only drawback is not having CarPlay, but I am sure I will get use to it.
