Tesla Charging Options: Comprehensive Guide

Exploring all Tesla charging methods is key to a happy ev experience. This guide covers home charging, destination charging, and supercharging, providing you with the information needed for each method.

Tesla Charging options:

1. Home Charging: Best Charging Method

Home charging stands as the best method for charing your Tesla. Here's how to do it:

  • Ensure compatibility between your Tesla's Wall connector charging cable and your home's wall socket. The plug from tesla should be of the UK-3pin which is the U.A.E Standard
  • Confirm the correct current and voltage are displayed on your Tesla's screen. The voltage and current should be 230V@10Amp.

Low Current or low voltage? Consult an electrician: Should the appropriate voltage/current not be supplied, an electrician may be necessary. Alternatively, trying a different outlet might help. Advise the electrician to inspect the wall outlet and ensure the 230V@10AMP is received in the tesla.

Don't have wall Socket? Consider Installation: Discuss installation options with your landlord or community management for tesla charging. The wall socket costs ~20AED, additional wiring from your home grid to the wall socket and electrician labor. the installation is very easy compared to installing the 2400AED wall charger by charging companies. Upto 10M extensions can be used if the wall socket is far away from the tesla parking.

Precautions : - Wall charger has built in over-heat monitoring, over current or low current cut off protections. However, it is NOT recommended to charge the tesla or have the wall connector placed in direct sunlight.

Home Charging Costs in Dubai & U.A.E:

In Dubai, the cost of electricity stands at 23 fils per kilowatt hour. For a Tesla Model 3 2021 with a 50 kW battery, the cost from 0 to 100% is approximately 11 AED, based on the latest DEWA rates. Larger batteries in models like the Tesla Model Y, S, and X can be calculated using the formula of multiplying the electricity rate (23 fils) by the battery capacity.(rate per kilowatt x Battery capacity in KW)

While technically not free, charging your Tesla at home in the UAE is incredibly cost-effective. Using a standard 3-pin socket is sufficient for daily charging needs, especially if your daily usage does not exceed 40% of the battery's capacity. This method provides a cost-efficient and convenient solution for Tesla owners in the UAE.

2. Destination Charging: For Long Days.

Public charging, or destination charging, offers versatility:

  • Apps like PlugShare can help identify nearby charging points.
  • Select from both free and paid charging stations according to your needs.

3. Superchargers: For Long Trips

Superchargers present unique advantages for Tesla drivers:

  • They're perfect for long journeys, ensuring rapid charging.
  • Utilize them for quick charges during travel emergencies.
  • Use Tesla's navigation for efficient supercharger location.
