Have you bought a Tesla? Are you tired of waiting for the mobile connector? The Tesla mobile connector plugs directly into a 10amp power outlet but can take a long time to recharge the battery. We recommend installing a dedicated circuit for the Tesla charger unit and finding the right team of electricians for the installation.
Whether you have a single-phase or 3 phase supply, anything is better than using the 10amp mobile connector. The Tesla Model S and X have the same charging unit (wall connector), and their mobile connector is universal for any Tesla car. The Model S has a capacity charging power of 22KW on a three-phase power supply only, and with a single-phase supply on a 32 amp safety switch, you can receive 7.6KW of power. Installing the Tesla charging unit on a three phase-supply at a power charge of 22KW should give you 90KM per hour of charge. The installation of a single-phase dedicated circuit with 7.6KW of power at 35 km per hour of battery charge.
The Tesla wall connector installation is a straightforward and cost-effective procedure installed and done right by professional electricians. The installation process should take a day, but this depends on the location of the wall connector and switchboard (power supply box).
The site or property would first need inspecting and quoted before any work commences. The electrician would assess the switchboard to see how many power phases are in place. Just a pointer, a 3-phase power supply installation for your charger will cost more than a single phase, as more cabling and material are involved. The location of the wall connector is another significant factor; the closer to the switchboard, the easier the installation and the inexpensive the cost will be. The electrician will also need to determine how to install the cabling. Can the cable be run through cavity walls, or will the power supply need protection from either ducting or conduit? The wall connecter must have its dedicated circuit, so, in turn, it will have its safety switch (RCBO), and the 3-phase RCBO over the single-phase RCBO is quite a few dollars extra.
