Charging equipment designed specifically to charge your Model S is available from Tesla. A Tesla Wall Connector, which installs in your garage, is the fastest way to charge Model S at home.
In several market regions, Model S is equipped with a Mobile Connector and the adapter(s) you need to plug into commonly used power outlets. When using the Mobile Connector, first plug the Mobile Connector into the power outlet, then plug in Model S. For more information about your Mobile Connector, see the Mobile Connector Owner’s Manual (available on the touchscreen). Additional adapters can be purchased from Tesla.
Tesla also provides various types of adapters (including J1772, Mennekes Type 2, and CHAdeMO) that allow you to plug Model S into the most commonly used public charging stations in your region. Connect the adapter to the charging station’s charge cable, open the charge port door using the touchscreen, then plug in Model S.
