July 08, 2020

Tesla, a leader in the electrical vehicle and clean energy market, manufactures and designs electrical vehicles and EV chargers. Known as reliable and easy to use, Tesla chargers can be installed in both residential and commercial areas. Have you purchased or are planning to buy an EV charger? Then it’s important that you know some basic information about their technology. Here are some frequently asked questions and the answers to them:


How long does it take to charge a Tesla?

The amount of time it takes to charge a Tesla depends on the car and the type of Tesla charging unit you use. If you are using a Tesla supercharger, you can get as much as 150 miles of range in as little as 20-25 minutes. A full charge would give you about 260 miles on average which will require 70 to 75 minutes of charging.


How long does a Tesla charge last?

The length of time that a charge will last depends on the distance you drive daily as well as the type of battery you have. Tesla vehicles come with various sized batteries but in general, the range varies from at least 230 miles up to 360 miles. 


How to charge a Tesla?

There are different options for using a Tesla charger. These include supercharging, destination charging (located at hotels, restaurants, etc), and home charging. Home charging is the most preferred option for most EV owners due to its convenience and cost-saving benefits.


How to charge Tesla at home?

The best way of using a Tesla charger at home is to have a reliable and certified electrician, such as A.S. Electrical, to help you install it. They will produce a 240V-50A circuit from your electrical service box to the location where you want to plug in your charging cable, which will most likely be in your garage. The electrician will then wire an outlet that you can use to charge your EV.
