How fast can I charge at home?

A maximum charge rate depends on three components, shown below. The component that channels the least power, referred to as the “slowest link”, determines the maximum charge rate.

Grid Connection at Your Home

Most homes in United Kingdom allow a maximum charge rate of 7.4 kW or 19 to 27 miles/hour. This is more than sufficient for overnight charging. An electrician can determine the available power at your home during a site visit and install your Wall Connector accordingly.

Tesla Wall Connector

The maximum power output of the Wall Connector is 22 kW, meaning it is never the slowest link of the home charging installation.

Your Tesla

The onboard charger, which is built into your car, has a maximum rate at which it can deliver energy to the battery.* Different Tesla cars have different onboard charger capabilities.

The Wall Connector is our recommended home charging solution, as it provides the most convenience and the fastest charging speeds. However, a Tesla can also be charged at universal Type 2 charging stations.

Yes. A domestic adapter is included as standard equipment with all new Tesla cars. This provides approximately 6-8 miles of range per hour of charge, depending on the car. For the best home charging experience, we recommend installing a Wall Connector.

The Tesla Wall Connector does not have a certified meter. If you require this functionality, you can install an MID-certified meter in front of the charge point or look into universal Type 2 charge points. Your local certified electrician can consult on the most convenient charging solution matching your needs.

Cost varies depending on the local circumstances. You may want to get multiple installation quotes. Tesla provides a list of recommended electricians in your area who can provide you a quote based on a free site visit.

Installing two Wall Connectors configured for power sharing would be the best option. The Wall Connector is equipped to facilitate load sharing for up to four connectors. Check the video and installation manual for more information on power sharing capabilities.

The standards for installing charge points state that every individual connector should be protected with an RCD that protects against direct current leaking. The Tesla Wall Connector does not measure DC current leaking, so an RCD Type B or a specific Type A-EV needs to be installed. National regulations can vary so always check with your local recommended electrician.

Superchargers skip the onboard charger of the vehicle, providing up to 250kW of direct current (DC) power directly to the battery. This level of power requires dedicated transformers and utility connections, which are not available in residential locations.

The best charging experience will always come from charging at home and this often costs less than Supercharging. Check the Supercharging support page for more information on usage and the price per kWh.
