Why Level 2 Wall Connector Is Best for Home Charging
240V level 2 chargers provide a bigger “pipeline” for electricity to flow to your Tesla. They can charge up to 15 times faster than trickle chargers. Tesla Mobile Connector, Wall Connector and the wireless Tesla charging station are different types of Level 2 chargers. A “Level 2” EV charger is simply any EV charger that can connect to a particular type of electrical circuit — 240 volt, split phase circuits (similar to what an electric dryer uses).
The ideal home Tesla charger offers these benefits:
- Recoups your daily driving range in just a few hours
- Fully recharges your battery overnight on the occasions that you arrive home on low charge (after a long trip, etc)
- Doesn’t require major upgrades to your home electrical service
For US drivers who cover about 37 miles per day on average, a charger that delivers 20-30 miles of range per hour charged is ideal (6.6-10 kW power delivery). Average daily miles are recharged within 2 hours and even a close-to-empty 100 kWh battery can be charged fully overnight. For the vast majority of homes, charging at those speeds will not require major electrical service upgrades to 400 amps.
