Upgraded Installation

Tesla Wall Connector

For customers interested in faster home charging, there is some additional optional equipment available when ordering a Model S: Tesla Wall Connector. This is piece of hardware purchased by the customer from Tesla, we will ship it directly to them.

For the fastest charging, using a circuit breaker rated for 100 amps is recommended. Per National Electric Code, the circuit breaker must be rated for 125% of the supplied current, meaning that a 100 Amp breaker can provide a maximum of 80 Amps of continuous current to a Tesla vehicle. In certain home or office locations, this level of power is not readily available.  In this event you can adjust the current setting on the Wall Connector manually ranging from 12 to 80 amp operating current.
