Tesla wall chargers: Levels 1 through 3

Level 1

Level 1 charging, otherwise known as “trickle charging,” utilizes a standard 120-volt electric applicant. 120-volt outlets are the standard and most used outlet in ordinary households, making this the universal option. Delivering 12 amps, the Level 1 can deliver 40 miles in an overnight charge of 8 hours.

Level 2

Level 2 chargers deliver between 3.3 to 17.2 kW of power, enabling you to gain 10 to 52 miles per hour of charging. Requiring a 240 volt power outlet, a Level 2 is ideal for the homeowner looking for a fast at-home charge.

Level 3

Level 3 chargers need 480-volt outlets. These are the highest in power and require outlets accessible at public stations and are not enabled for homeowners. A Level 3 charger can charge a Tesla Model 3 from 5 to 90 percent in a mere 37 minutes.

Your Tesla charging station color guide:

 

  • Green: Charging is done.
  • Green (blinking): The Tesla is currently charging. The closer the battery gets to being full, the light will flash green.
  • Blue: The Tesla senses there is a charger connected.
  • Blue (blinking): The Tesla is transmitting with the connector. It is either preparing for a charge or has a charging session scheduled for a specific time.
  • White: The charging port flap is opened. Your Tesla is prepared to charge, but it shows no sign of a connector cord inserted. An alternative reason is that the latch is freed, and the connector is ready to be moved elsewhere.
  • Gold-colored: The connector is not fully connected. Re-adjust the cord to fit the charging port.
  • Blinking gold: Your Tesla is charging at a smaller electrical current (AC charging).
  • Red: There is a fault detected within the system, and the charging has stopped until further notice. Make sure to check the panels and touchscreens for an error message.
