How long does it take to charge a Tesla on 110 volts?
I want to buy a Tesla, but I’m apprehensive. I’ve heard it’s expensive to buy the wall charger, and the car is already pretty pricey. Do I need the charger? Would it take too long to charge a Tesla with a 110-volt wall outlet?

Buying a new Tesla is an exciting experience! They get great mileage, and the price isn’t outrageous compared to other luxury cars! However, charging the car on a 110-volt outlet can take between 20 and 40 hours! But don’t worry—you still have other options.
If 20 to 40 hours to charge your vehicle is out of the realm of possibility, you can still get the Tesla Level 2 charger. The cost of installation plus parts is $1,700, but you’ll be able to charge your car in eight to 12 hours!
If that still sounds like too much, you could also charge your Tesla in 15 to 30 minutes at a supercharger station. Since you’re only paying for electricity, it should also be an affordable experience!
