Charging Time

Charging speeds affected by many factors, including the power and current of the charging station, as well as external factors like air temperature and vehicle battery capacity. If the battery is outside the optimal temperature range, the vehicle will adjust it before charging.

To 80 percent charge. Charging rate slows as the battery gets closer to its full capacity to protect battery’s health. Therefore, it is more efficient in cost and time to use DC fast charging until reaching 80%, and then continue on their trip. The remaining time taken to charge the last 10% is typically similar to charging the initial 90%.

When I took it out of the box I was like "wow this thing is way heavier than I was expecting. Remember to plug the adapter to the charger first before plugging into the Tesla. A good investment!

Recently got my adapter and tested it at an Electrify America charger. Works great! A few caveats for it though. The first is, you need to plug the adapter to the CCS plug FIRST, or you can get errors on the charging station Once you plug the adapter to the CCS plug, then you plug everything to your Tesla. The charger I was at was 150kw max output station. Ramped up to about 120kw-ish, had me charged up in 30 min and I was on my way. Worked flawlessly.

Ordered on the 15th and received 15 days later. I have a few free CCS chargers (30ish KW) that I can use on my normal commutes. It is totally worth it for me!

Added flexibility is nice. I've gone places that would have taken multiple hour reroutes or charging at a level 2 in order to make it there if I didn't have the adapter. So far I’m beyond happy and very glad I bought it.
