Charge Your Tesla Using 100% Solar Power and Optimise Your Power Consumption
Charging at a CEE Industrial Socket
You can charge your Tesla electric car anywhere while you are out and about – provided that you have a mobile charging station, such as the NRGkick, and the right adapters. The Model S and Model X can be charged with up to 16.5kW of charging power at any 32 A CEE industrial socket, just like using the charging station at home.
Charging at Public Charging Stations
You can also charge up your Tesla at public charging stations. However, most providers of public charging stations will require that you register with them beforehand. As a result, public charging needs good planning. The be.ENERGISED system from has.to.be enables drivers of electric cars to pay for charging easily and directly online via PayPal or credit card, without the need of a prior registration.
Charging Using a Tesla Supercharger
The fast charging stations installed by Tesla can charge your Model S or Model X to 80% battery capacity at no cost in just 30 minutes – that will certainly be enough to get you to the next supercharger. The fast charging stations are located at important hubs, such as motorway service areas, and offer multiple charging points. Power is not provided free of charge for the Tesla Model 3.

Special Features when Charging Your Tesla Model S:
The age of the 22 kW Model S double charger is over. From now on, it will be succeeded by the famous Model S in the 11 kW and the 16.5 kW upgrade variants. With a battery capacity of 70 kWh, you can enjoy the full driving range after about 4.5 hours of charging, while the 90 kWh variant is fully charged in 6 hours. Depending on your driving style and a number of other parameters such as the season, air conditioning system or seat heating, and based on the battery capacity, the driving range of your Tesla Model S will be up to 470 km (70D) or 550 km (90D). The Tesla Model S is also available in the P version with Insane button, e.g. the Tesla Model S P90D, which makes it possible to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 3 seconds.
The car can be charged at home using a type 2 plug. In some cases, you can also charge your Tesla Model S via a domestic socket at 2.3 kW using the mobile connector. For safety reasons, however, you should avoid doing this in the long term, since charging your car from a domestic socket will place the maximum load on the socket for up to 40 hours. The charging station enables you not only to charge your Tesla Model S safely, but also 7 times as quickly as using a domestic socket.
Special Features when Charging Your Tesla Model X:
Depending on the on-board charger type (11 kW, with the option of 16.5 kW), you can charge the Tesla Model X at home at a charging power of up to 16.5 kW. With a battery capacity of 75 kWh, you can enjoy the full driving range after about 5 hours of charging, while the 90 kWh variant is fully charged in 6 hours. Depending on your driving style and a number of other factors such as the season, air conditioning system and seat heating, the real driving range is 417 km for the Tesla Model X 75D and 489 km for the Tesla Model X 90D. The Tesla Model X also comes with the Insane button and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 3 seconds.
