Wall Connector Features


Wall Connector can be used with Model S, Model 3 and Model X. It is compatible with Model Y, Model X, and Model X. It is capable of providing up to 44 miles per hour of charging and up output of 11.5 kW or 48 amps, depending on model.


Wall Connector is compatible with most electrical systems. For a wide range of circuit breakers, it can be used to modify power levels. Installation is possible in almost all residences, workplace, condos, and apartments thanks to this flexibility.. The Mobile Connector is 24 sq ft (7.3 m) cable, is lightweight and can be kept in your car.


The Wall Connector can connect remote diagnostics, monitor usage information, and download firmware wirelessly by being connected to a Wi-Fi network. To improve user experience and add new features, firmware updates will automatically be sent to the Wall Connector.

Power sharing

This power sharing feature is great for households who need to charge multiple Tesla at once but don’t have enough power to run them all. This allows up to four Wall Connectors, which can share power from one circuit and still allow your vehicles to receive sufficient charge.

Access Control

You have total control over which vehicles can use your Wall Connector for charging thanks to the charging access control. Without using a physical lock device, you can limit charging access using the commissioning wizard.

Indoor/Outdoor Compatible

The lightweight construction of Wall Connector enables versatile, indoor or outdoor mounting.

Charging Speed of Vehicles

Install Wall Connector with a circuit breaker that matches the vehicle’s onboard charger capabilities for fastest home charging. Tap the lightning bolt icon at the touchscreen to see the maximum amperage for your Tesla.

All charges are approximate.

Wall Connector can be used to support any electrical system, even those with limited power or in unusual power situations.

It is a good idea to install your Wall Connector before you take delivery of your vehicle. Installations usually take less than an hour, but scheduling an electrician may take up to two weeks.

How do I install an electric car charger at home?

This question has both a simple and complex answer. These adjectives can be used to describe almost everything related to EVs, and the entire industry that they have spawned.

This article will not only show you how to charge your electric car, but also answer many questions. Examples include:

  • What is an electric vehicle charging dock?
  • What are the types of electric charging stations available?
  • What is the cost of an electric charging station?
  • How long does an electric car take to charge?
  • What is the cost of charging an electric car?
  • What are the types of electric vehicle charging stations available?

There are three types of basic electric vehicle charging stations. These stations are often called “electric vehicle service equipment”, or EVSE. These stations can be simple or more complicated than you might think.

What is a Level 1 Charging station?

A Level 1 charger is the most basic charging station of the three. The charging cable that comes with an electric vehicle when it is purchased or leased is a Level 1 charger. These chargers simply plug into a typical grounded wall socket using a common configuration plug and operate on standard household electrical current (110–120 volts AC).

Although Level 1 chargers are convenient and inexpensive, their main drawback is the lengthy, sometimes excruciatingly long, battery recharge times. A Level 1 charger should be able to provide 5 to 6 miles per hour of charging for an electric vehicle (EV). If your car has a 200-mile range, it may take 35 to 50 hours to fully recharge.

Level 1 solutions should only be used to charge plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV). In a typical PHEV, the battery can be recharged in a few hours.

What is a Level 2 Charging station?

The Level 2 charger is next on the EV charging station ladder. Level 2 chargers use 240-volt circuits, which are the same type used to charge electric clothes dryers.

Some Level 2 charging stations can be carried and use the multi-pronged plug with associated outlet for clothes dryers. Many households have such an outlet and circuit in their laundry rooms. It is not convenient to unplug the dryer in order to plug in your electric car tesla charger.

The vast majority of Level 2 charging stations are installed in homes by people who hire electricians to run a 240-volt circuit to the garage. Consumers can “hard-wire” the charging station into the circuit once the garage is powered. They can also plug in a Level 2 portable wall charger to the 240-volt socket in the garage and take the tesla wall charger with them.

It can be costly to hire an electrician and change the existing electrical system in your home. The big advantage is the faster charging rates, which speed up recharge times. An EV battery can be charged at Level 2 in half the time than it takes with a Level 1. This makes it the most convenient charging station for those who own an electric vehicle.

A PHEV with 200 mile range can be charged in 10 to 15 hours. A Level 2 charging station can be used with a PHEV to recharge the battery in less than four hours.

What is a Level 3 Charging station?

A Level 3 charging station for electric cars is the third. It is intended for commercial use, or to be used by those who need to stop for a few minutes before returning on their journey.

At Level 3 filling stations, DC fast chargers (DCFC) are offered. As a result, charging times can be accelerated. In less than an hour, some Level 3 fast chargers can fully charge a Battery pack from its fully charged state. With a 350-volt or 750-volt charging system, the most recent EV models can recharge high-power batteries from 10% to 80% in as little as 20 minutes. The charging times for Level 3 devices will be even shorter, despite the apparent lightning speed. You could contrast Level 3’s charging time with that of a typical gas station.

A Level 3 car charging installation can easily cost $50,000. Although it is highly improbable that your energy utility would approve the installation of a Level 3 charging cable in your home, even if you had that kind of cash to spend, because many residential areas don’t have electrical panels that can support it.

Connecting to a Wall

The third generation Tesla Wall Connector was designed to be easy to install. The third generation Tesla Wall Connector features an open wire box that has integrated terminals. This allows for plenty of space to land wires. Entry points can be made from the top, bottom, and rear. To commission Wall Connectors and connect to customers’ internet networks, installers can use their smartphone.

Wall Connector Commissioning

Wall Connector hosts Wi-Fi networks for configuration of breaker sizes, Wi-Fi connectivity and power sharing. The Wi-Fi network broadcasts for five minutes after the Wall Connector has been energized. It can also be re-enabled for another five minutes by pressing the button on the charging cable’s handle.


Prices for installation can vary depending upon your electrical system.

An installation that is simple can cost anywhere from $750 to $1,500. If you require additional items to complete your installation, the cost will be increased accordingly.

Usually included:

  • Service and materials for professional installation
  • Permit
  • Inspection
  • Warranty on installation

Usually, additional:

  • The length of the wire runs (distance between an electrical panel and the installation site)
  • Additional sub-panel
  • Trench (underground wires)
  • Existing Main panel upgrade
  • Pedestal installation
  • Hidden cables behind walls
  • Installation Resources
