Tesla’s Covertly Installing Wall Chargers At Locations Across The Country

teslalogoSo you’ve no doubt heard of Tesla’s nationwide high-speed EV Supercharger network, right? But have you heard of the company’s other charging network?

No, huh? Well you’re not the only one. It turns out that Tesla has been installing high-power wall chargers at hotels, restaurants, beaches, boardwalks, etc, around the country for some time now.

While not quite as high-powered as the Supercharger stations, the chargers will certainly add quite a boost to your battery — an hour of charging at these adds around 58 miles of range. Which means that these chargers are somewhere around twice as fast as the standard 240-volt chargers found at many other charging facilities.

The Wall Street Journal provides more:

Tesla has been rolling these out quickly across the country as a convenience to customers. The company says 106 of them have been installed since the program began this spring, with more coming online daily. Like the Superchargers, they are free to use for Tesla owners. They don’t work with other electric cars.

Unlike the Superchargers, which function more like gas stations, located off of major routes, these wall chargers are designed for destinations. Teslas can also use standard charging stations with the use of an adapter that comes with the car.

According to Tesla spokeswoman Alexis Georgeson, there isn’t any set plan in place — the number to be installed in the future isn’t set. Given the fact that the Supercharger network is itself quite comprehensive, this other network is more a supplement than anything. The company’s current plan is to have the Supercharger network provide service to at least 98% of the American and Canadian populations by the end of next year.
