Tesla Mobile Connector Owners Manual

Specifications Use only a 230 volt (single phase) or 230/400 volt (3 phase) AC, 50 hertz wall outlet that has a dedicated and properly grounded circuit. The minimum single-phase current is 10A. If possible, use a dedicated receptacle with a single socket. If the receptacle has two sockets, do not plug any other items into the other socket. The Mobile Connector is 6 metres long. Use an existing outlet or install a new outlet within approximately 4 metres of the vehicle’s charge port and at least 45 cm above the ground. The charge port is located on the side of the vehicle, behind a door that is part of the rear tail light assembly. Warning: Do not use an extension cord, a multi-outlet adapter, a multi-plug, a conversion plug, or a power strip to plug in the Mobile Connector. Charging Time Charging times vary based on the voltage and current available from the power outlet, subject to various conditions. Charge time also depends on ambient temperature and the vehicle’s Battery temperature. If the Battery is not within the optimal temperature range for charging, the vehicle heats or cools the Battery before charging begins.
