Having a safe space to store your Tesla and your charger and its cord is very important if you charge your Tesla at home.
The cord, however, is quite long, so it can always reach your car, but it can be challenging to put away safely.
Tesla has now built the wall connector pedestal for your new wall connector to charge your vehicle.
Your wall connector should be located three feet away from any wall, surface or object (including other charging adapters). For optimum operational efficiency, the wall connector pedestal should also be a minimum of 18 inches off of the floor. This ensures that air can freely flow around the adapter and promotes proper airflow within your garage or parking space. This will also allow your car to charge more effectively, giving you maximum use out of your products. When you charge your vehicle, wanting it to charge efficiently is the number one priority, so doing the correct installation steps for your wall charger pedestal is crucial. Being a free-standing pedestal, you can freely place this wall connector pedestal wherever you prefer, outside your driveway or in your garage.
There are many benefits to having the wall connector pedestal as well as your wall connector to charge your Tesla vehicle;
The Tesla Wall Connector is compatible with all connectors, including both generations 2 and 3 wall connectors.
Interchangeable single or dual mount configurations make it perfect for both your first home and your second and third homes.
With the Tesla Wall Connector, you can install the pedestal either outside or inside, providing you with versatility for whichever space you are planning on charging your Tesla in.
Rugged aluminium construction for longevity and durability.
With all products, some users may have some queries and concerns when deciding whether or not to make the additional purchase.
- Some Tesla drivers may already have a solution to the large cord, so they may see the pedestal as an expensive additional purchase they aren’t sure about. While it keeps your cord and charger safe and stored well, it is pretty high in price, which deters some customers.
- While you are able to move the charger and pedestal around if you move often, you will always need to make sure that there is a place for trenching as well as a solid concrete pad to install and secure the pedestal before use.
Our Final Opinion on this Gadget
Tesla drivers are constantly on the move, and moving from one place to another, you always want to ensure you can charge your sweet ride anywhere. Just like the wall connector, the pedestal has been made with Tesla drivers in mind, knowing that adding these additional products will make your life in the Tesla worry-free.
Having a wall connector to charge your Tesla instead of always finding a Tesla charging station is a great benefit. Also, the wall connectors are customizable with their different power levels so they will always work for any home. This allows you to move freely, knowing wherever your next home is, you’ll be able to charge your vehicle.
Some customers have found that the Tesla wall connectors may make a high pitch noise after installation. However that isn’t anything to worry about as the charging capability is not affected, nor is it harmful to the car itself. There will be a light sound when charging, but it isn’t a disturbing noise.
