Choosing the Right Tesla Charger for You
Before you can install a Tesla charger, you need to choose the right one for your car and lifestyle. Most Tesla owners choose to buy a Tesla brand charger but there are plenty of other high-quality chargers that can be used with the correct adapter such as ChargePoint, Enel X Juicebox, and Autel. It’s important to factor in things such as wifi, Bluetooth, cable length, and hardwire vs Nema 14 50 when selecting the right charger for your situation. You can find more on our charger page.
