Tesla Model 3 electric car charger installation & HPWC options
Congratulations...you've probably waited a long time to say it, but you're now officially a Tesla Model 3 owner!
One of the most hotly anticipated EVs on the Australian market, the Model 3 had around 40,000 pre-orders in Australia and NZ alone and it's taken almost 3 years for them to be delivered.
The Model 3 is also the brand (and car) that has influenced so many people's decision to go electric; and sent other major car manufacturers scrambling to release a competitively priced, ranged and sized EV that will entice Aussie and NZ drivers.
With some types of the Model 3 capable of 0 to 100kms in around 3 seconds, plus a range of 500+kms, PLUS a whole lot of sustainable and fun driving, the Model 3 is a game changer on the domestic market...and we're looking forward to hearing your experiences!
Using our national network of professional and qualified electricians, we can organise for your Tesla-supplied HPWC to be installed anywhere - nationally in Australia and New Zealand. But, we also have some other great EVSE charging options for you too.
So, let's have a look at how you get the best out of your Tesla Model 3 with some great charging tips and tricks!
Have your Tesla HPWC electric car charger installed at home
Your Tesla Model 3 comes with an electric car charger or HPWC...but what are the pros and cons?
Our team knows that, without a doubt, having the right EV charging equipment at home and in your boot is vital to a positive electric car driving experience.
When you buy a Tesla Model 3, it is supplied with a wall charging station or High Power Wall Connector (HPWC) for home charging and a portable electric car charger or Universal Mobile Connector (UMC) for when you're out and about.
Both your HPWC and UMC arrive in the boot of your Tesla Model 3 when you get it, so there's no real opportunity to install your charging - or get used to the equipment - ahead of time. Plus, there are some pros and cons with the supplied charging equipment:
No eco-smart or solar-aware function
Faster and solar smart electric car charging for your Tesla Model 3
While both the Tesla-supplied chargers will be fine to start with, every EV owner eventually gets to the point where they want to charge their car faster from three phase power or want to be able to charge only from their solar panels.
So here we have a number of electric car chargers which you may want to invest in.
Myenergi Zappi - one of our most popular Type 2 ev chargers, the Zappi is a very smart electric car charger for home. Basically, it takes your self-generated solar power and feeds it to your EV at a rate that ensures you're not pulling from the grid (and paying to charge your car up). By integrating with your solar and/or battery storage system, the Zappi will keep you driving on sunshine while you're out enjoying the power and performance of your Model 3.
Tip: If you have a home battery only the Zappi ev charger will ensure you have control over when the battery is used to charge your car.
This Tesla Model 3 Type 2 to Type 2 charging cable will add up to 22Kw / or 120 km for every hour of charge
This charging cable is for every Mennekes Type 2 vehicle to enable safe and secure charging from public ‘Universal’ charge points.
There is a trend for public type 2 charger stations to be universal; this means the chargepoint has no in-built cable. The result is reduced maintenance and damage, as well as reduced liability for the owner of the electric car charging station.
The GIGER is our favourite portable electric car charger at the moment and even better is cheapest way to get into 3 phase ev charging. Both the GIGER and the Juice Booster can enable charge from the TOCA and AEVA charging network a real bonus if you take your Tesla Model 3 or Hyundai Kona away from the charging networks.
