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.

About The hipster
About Ryan - For one I never really considered myself a hipster, but most of my suburban Co-worker thought so, I have a beard and glasses. So I ran with it.
