With the growing popularity of electric and hybrid cars, the demand for home car charging options is also exploding. Sustainable transportation requires home charging options. And while it is possible to charge electric cars, such as the Tesla Model S, with a standard home outlet, it’s certainly not ideal. With the Model S, using a regular plug will only charge about three miles of range per hour the car is plugged in. In other words, plugging a Model S into a standard outlet requires more than 66 hours of charging to achieve 200 miles of range!
How Do You Charge Your Tesla?
A 240-volt outlet provides a far faster charge. These upgraded outlets can get a Model S charged to 200 miles of range in just under seven hours. Therefore, it’s feasible that your Model S could be fully charged overnight if it’s plugged into a 240-volt outlet.
An even better charging solution is a Telsa Wall Connector. With a charging speed of up to 58 miles of range per hour, the Wall Connector is the Telsa charging solution for people who don’t always want to wait around for their Model S to charge.
