# How many Amps do I need for a Tesla Home Charger?

The person who is owning a Tesla car does need a lot of information regarding the charger and charging how many amps does a Tesla charger need different charging devices will have different charge speeds so you have to choose a charger that has a minimum installation cost but does have maximum electric driving. So this article will guide you about how many amps you need for a Tesla home charger.

## How many amps are needed for a Tesla home charger?

The charger amps vary according to the Tesla model such as:

•  A Tesla model of model 3 rear wheel does have 32 amp.
•  The models X, S, and Y also model 3 performances have 48 amps.

For a home charger, you just don’t have to look for charger amps but you need to consider many factors like amps breaker, voltage, size breaker, etc which is explained next.

### Charging with a 50 amps home charger:

It all depends upon the Tesla model such as:

• A model S if it is charged with a 50 amp the miles of range per hour is 29 mph.
• The Tesla Model 3 standard when charged with a 50 amps charger then the range per hour would be 37 mph.
• Tesla Model X when charged with 50 amps then the mile of range per hour would be 25 mph.
• The Tesla Model Y charges a 50 amp then the Mile of range per hour would be 36 mph.

### Charging with a 30 amps home charger:

• A Tesla Model S when charged on a 30 M circuit breaker would have the maximum charging speed which is 17 miles per hour.
• A Tesla model 3 when charged on a 30 amp circuit breaker would have a charging speed of 22 miles per hour.
• A Tesla Model X charge on a 30 amp circuit breaker would have 14 miles per hour.

## Set up voltage for tesla home charger:

The other appliances generally use zero volts but for a home charger for a Tesla car, you need the correct voltage which is 240 volts so if you have installed a 240-volt outlet you need to have a 50 amps NEMA 14-50 outlet for mobile connectors also called universal mobile connector.  The following are some differences in time taken to charge with different voltage systems:

### Using 220V system:

• A Tesla car which is used to charge with a system of 220 volts will take an hour to charge up to 40% to 80%.
• Using a 220-volt system for charging a Tesla it will take 2 hours to charge from 80% to 100%.
• After charging a Tesla car around this rate it will run around 10 to 60 miles per hour but it totally depends upon the Tesla model.

### Using 110V system:

• A Tesla car that is charged on a 110-volt system can have approximately for every hour of charging time it will add 3 miles to Tesla cars range. However, charging with a system of 110 volts will take around 13 to 14 hours.
• For charging a Tesla car up to 100% using a 110-volt system it will require charging from 6 in the evening to 7 in the morning.

### Using 240V system:

• Using a 240V system to charge and the time taken to charge depends on the amps of the circuit breaker and the model of the car.
• Using a 60 amp circuit breaker then the maximum range per charge of the Tesla car model S would be 34 mph the tesla car model X would be 30 mph and the model why would be 42 mph.

Note:

According to the amperage of the circuit breaker, the charging speed per model goes down.

## Size breaker:

Commonly a Tesla model does have the amps either 48 amps or 32 amps and according to the amp the size breaker is different for example Tesla model 3 performance 3 long-range model and Model S, X, and Y have 48 amps and they do need to connect to A 60 amp circuit breaker but a model 3 read will drive having 32 amp need to be connected with 40 amp circuit breaker.

## What size breaker should prefer more?

For charging the Tesla model faster A 60 amp circuit breaker is highly recommended because it does charge the car faster. If you charge the Tesla model with a 60 amp circuit breaker you are able to cover upward of 30 miles per charging hour of the tesla Model such as models 3, S, X, and Y.

## Conclusion:

As mainly the charging speed always depends upon the Emperors of the Tesla model onboard charger and circuit breaker. according to me using a 60 amp circuit breaker for charging at home and this best for all Tesla models because it provides you the highest miles of Ranger per charging hour.

## FAQ’s

### Charging Tesla at maximum amps is beneficial?

We should charge the vehicle maximum to the limit of around 90% or below it for longer battery life.
