With the questions about charging a Model 3 ramping nearly as fast as the car itself it seemed that a comprehensive resource that folks could link to might be helpful. This charging guide is Model 3 specific, providing an overview of charging the car at home. It includes a calculator to help the owner (or soon to be owner) determine the appropriate charging solution based on how many miles per day they drive. There is also an outlet table showing the required AC receptacle and circuit needed for the selected charging solution, and a description of the Tesla Wall Connector for cases when a directly connected charging appliance is appropriate. A subsequent FAQ addresses some typical charging questions.

CREDITS: Coastal Cruiser authored the original draft of the charging guide. Tesla Tap agreed to host the guide on his site (teslatap.com). This was fortuitous as Tesla Tap added much value to the guide. He created the charging calculator, drew the outlet illustrations, enacted a significant number of edits and additions, and did so expeditiously and without complaint. I consider Tesla Tap a co-author of the article (and an all-round nice guy).

Much of the information in the charging guide came from answers to questions posed in the forums, so those contributors played their part as well. Thank you.

Special thanks to Tesla forum members ‘Rocky_H’, ‘cascadiadesign’, ‘chuck’, ‘CST’, ‘TexasBob’, and ‘Earl and Nagin’, who read and provided critique for the early drafts of the guide.
