And most of the voltage of the home charging post is the use of household 220V voltage, charging speed up to 40km / h, if the voltage is 380V, the charging speed can reach 70km / h.
And the installation of home charging piles will generally be completed by the official Tesla service provider, the owner as long as there is a fixed parking space, and apply for a good meter, you can install. After the installation of the home charging pile, then as long as you come home from work at night, you can charge the car, and the next day you can go out with a full charge, which is very convenient.
2、Super charging pile
Super charging is a charging method that many car owners like, its charging speed can reach 10 minutes to fill 100km at the fastest, generally as long as 40 minutes to fully charged, and in the super charging station, there is a wireless network, car owners can also enjoy the car's entertainment services during the charging process.
