As you know, charging your Tesla is important.
With two, it is now twice as important that you have this down. On a typical basis, you can charge at SuperCharging stations, although you may have to go out of your way to charge up and it can become costly. Comparatively, if you set up charging the right way at home, it is cost-effective and convenient to wake up with a full battery.
So what's the issue with charging at home?
Charging at home is no doubt the easiest and most affordable place to charge. The issue lies in the installation.
Once you have one outlet installed at home for charging, it fills up most of the power your electrical panel can handle. What this means is that when you get quoted from an electrician somewhere from $1,500 - $8,000 (depending on your setup) to install an outlet for charging.
This might seem unreasonable…. And it is. No one wants to pay thousands of dollars to charge their car at home.
Another choice is to switch your current charger between both of your Teslas. This means you need to monitor and know when one of your Teslas is sufficiently charged, then go into your garage and switch the charger to your second car.
“This was just inconvenient, and a pain in the neck” one of our customers explained who was setting an alarm at 11 pm to switch their charger to their wife's Tesla.
If you already have an outlet installed, the best solution for you is to get a NeoCharge 50A Smart Splitter, which allows you to share one outlet for charging both of your cars. This means you don’t need any installation, permits, or hassle.
You simply plug in the Smart Splitter device and plugin both of the Tesla Mobile Connectors (or any EVSE) that comes with your car and you’re ready to charge up at home. We’ve found that most Tesla owners are saving upwards of $3,000 on their installation!
The Smart Splitter also has smart sensing capabilities that switch power between your two Teslas. You can charge both of your Teslas at the same time by setting the current limit in your car or charge one after the other sequentially. Making it effortless to charge up at home and eliminating the need to switch the charger over in the middle of the night.
In the case that you have an electric dryer or water heater near your garage. You can also use the one of NeoCharge's 30A Smart Splitters to share your outlet for charging access. This is perfect for homeowners and renters that want to save time and money on their electrical installation.
