It has been named the North American Charging Standard with a hope to be adopted by the North American EV industry.

Tesla announced on November 11 the opening of its proprietary charging standard, originally introduced in 2012 with the market launch of the Tesla Model S to handle AC normal charging and DC fast charging.

Since then, it was used by the company in North America and in some other global markets.

Tesla says that after more than a decade of use, and an equivalent of 20 billion miles (32 billion km) of charging, the proprietary connector is the most proven in North America.

Tesla decided to open the EV connector design to the world, naming it the North American Charging Standard (NACS), so any other company would be able to adopt it (instead of the CCS Combo 1/ SAE J1772 Combo or the already outgoing CHAdeMO).

In pursuit of our mission to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy, today we are opening our EV connector design to the world. We invite charging network operators and vehicle manufacturers to put the Tesla charging connector and charge port, now called the North American Charging Standard (NACS), on their equipment and vehicles.

North American Charging Standard (NACS). 1 MW DC and 1,000 V

Tesla’s charging standard has been designed for AC charging (single phase) as well as DC fast charging, using one slim package.

The company officially revealed that the DC power output might reach up to 1 MW of power, which is two times more than in the case of the Combined Charging System (CCS).

Not only that, there are two configurations of the standard: for 500 V or 1,000 V, which are mechanically backward compatible. In other words, no change is needed to use the standard for the latest 800V or 900V battery systems.

The North American Charging Standard exists in both a 500V rated configuration and a 1,000V rated configuration. The 1,000V version is mechanically backwards compatible (i.e. 500V inlets can mate with 1,000V connectors and 500V connectors can mate with 1,000V inlets).

The maximum current rating has not been specified, although Tesla was able to successfully operate above 900A continuously with a non-liquid cooled vehicle inlet. That’s close to 1 MW.

The North American Charging Standard shall specify no maximum current rating. The maximum current rating of the inlet or connector shall be determined by the manufacturer, provided that the temperature limits defined in section 8 are maintained.

Tesla has successfully operated the North American Charging Standard above 900A continuously with a non-liquid cooled vehicle inlet.

Tesla notes that the connector has no moving parts, is half the size and two times more powerful than the CCS connectors. The difference can be seen below:

Tesla: North American Charging Standard vs CCS Combo 1

1-phase AC charging

In the case of AC charging, the standard is single-phase and that’s probably its only drawback preventing it from global adoption, because in many markets (including Europe) higher power levels (11-22 kW) are available through three-phase circuits.

Tesla‘s current basic specs for AC charging is 48 A at 240 V, which is about 11.5 kW (on par with Tesla’s onboard chargers). There is no real limit to the AC current level on the standard side because the limit is usually related to onboard charger or the infrastructure.

In the early days of the Tesla Model S/Model X, the company offered higher power levels of onboard chargers. up to 19.2 kW (80 A at 240 V), but even in North America, it was a bit high to accommodate. In Europe, such a high power level from a single phase on an individual household level is rather unheard of (instead, 22 kW is often available using three phases. 3x 32 A at 230 V, while 11 kW is easily available).

If only Tesla would develop a more universal 3-phase version (with unused two small AC pins in 1-phase markets) its standard would be a perfect solution, covering all applications around the world at the expense of a marginal increase in cost and space. The specifics of this one thing already caused Tesla to adopt the CCS Combo 2 standard in Europe and in most of the rest of the world.

The battle for Tesla’s North American Charging Standard (NACS) is now just for the North American market (and a small number of other markets).

NACS position in North America

Tesla points out that the NACS is the most common charging standard in North America:

  • NACS vehicles outnumber CCS two-to-one
  • Tesla’s Supercharging network has 60% more NACS posts than all the CCS-equipped networks combined

That difference is not expected to simply go away anytime soon, as Tesla has sold almost two out of three new all-electric cars in the US.

Tesla reveals that some charging networks already have plans to use NACS, which means DC fast chargers with Tesla-compatible plugs (without the necessity to use a CCS1 adapter, which Tesla also sells for 250).

The question is whether other carmakers will be willing to ditch the CCS1 in North America and switch to Tesla’s standard.

Tesla invites competitors:

Network operators already have plans in motion to incorporate NACS at their chargers, so Tesla owners can look forward to charging at other networks without adapters. Similarly, we look forward to future electric vehicles incorporating the NACS design and charging at Tesla’s North American Supercharging and Destination Charging networks.

So far we saw only Aptera applauding the idea, although Aptera is a small company, which also does not need to redesign anything or provide backward compatibility to older vehicles. That’s an easy choice for them. Aptera previously suggested a nationwide Tesla charging standard.

Not only CCS1, but also it would be the death of SAE J1772

While the Tesla’s charging standard is mostly associated with fast charging and Tesla Supercharging network, the switch from CCS1 (aka SAE J1772 Combo) to NACS, in the long term would also kill the SAE J1772 AC charging connector.

Why? Well, why would you install the J1772 on the vehicle side anymore if the NACS would handle both AC and DC charging, and an adapter for J1772 is a simple part (Tesla sells it for 50). Ford is even adding such adapters with the Ford F-150 Lightning (mostly for marketing reason).

It other words, the J1772 would gradually fade, just like the CCS1 and join CHAdeMO at the charging graveyard in North America.

What are the Tesla Charging Options?

Elon Musk’s vision to make electric vehicles a primary mode of transport for the world is no longer a far-fetched idea. The first problem that Tesla needs to address before firmly establishing electric vehicle dependency is charging. Recent steps towards this initiative involve Elon Musk’s announcement to make Tesla’s charging stations open to all-electric vehicles, not just Teslas.

Many people believe that this is a marketing flaw for Tesla as they are giving up their vast network of charging stations around the US to other car companies. On the flip side, people have failed to realize that Tesla will also benefit from more EV owners using their charging stalls.

With more users at their disposal, Tesla can expand their already vast network of charging stations and gain further dominance in the electric vehicle space. Regardless of the increasing number of electric cars rushing to Tesla stations, whether this will improve their income stream is still up for debate.

Nonetheless, to evaluate this question, you also must take into account that a large majority of Tesla owners charge their cars at home and not the charging stations. The only time charging stations become useful for Tesla users is when they have to travel long distances.

You can find many different Tesla charging options when it comes to fueling a Tesla’s battery with stored electricity. Every charging option involves a particular set of advantages and disadvantages for Tesla users around the world.

Tesla Charging 101

All the Tesla cars can easily recharge from the 120-volt, 240-volt, and supercharging Tesla outlets, along with other company charging outlets. To check the battery condition of a Tesla car, all you have to do is press the battery icon on the infotainment screen.

single-phase, charging, station, tesla, phase, charger

To retrieve additional details, two main charging types encompass the charging for Tesla, AC or DC. If you charge at home, then you generally require an AC charger. Essentially, a Tesla car will benefit more from utilizing an AC charger. This is because each car has an inventor that converts the AC into DC.

Different Types of AC Chargers

The Tesla onboard charger for the new Tesla Model 3 or X has a charging capacity of 16.5 KW. This means that the car’s maximum charging from a destination charger can allow it to run at about 82 km/h. So what are Tesla’s charging options for AC charging? Well, every Tesla comes with a mobile charging kit.

This kit comprises a wall plug that can connect to any power socket in your home. This plug runs at 10 amperes. Therefore, if the power socket runs at 10 amps of an electric volt, and the average home generates about 240 volts from the power supply, the maximum capacity that you can get is 2.4 Kilowatts of energy.

This means that you can charge at about 10 kilometers an hour and you cannot get any faster when charging with the help of a wall plug. This may not be very fast, especially if you have a base model of a 75-kilowatt battery. In that case, your battery capacity evaluates out to be 375 kilometers.

Along with the plug, Tesla’s charging kit also includes a wall connector. And there are two types of wall connectors that you can find. The first includes the single-phase wall connector and the other involves a three-phase wall connector.

Single Phase Wall Connectors

If you have a single-phase wall connector, then the maximum current that you can generate is about 40 amps. This will translate into 96 Kilowatts of energy for your Tesla car, which equates to about 45 kilometers an hour. This means that if you use a single-phase charger, even if your home is three-phase, you will get a range of about 45 kilometers an hour.

If you have a Tesla Model S, then you will notice that this is a little short of the 82 km/h capacity that the car has. This is why for cars such as these, a three-phase charger is comparatively better and more adequate.

Three Phase Charger

Even though the three-phase chargers are smaller, they can provide your car with a charge capacity that caters to the 82 km/hour limit. Using a three-phase charger is, therefore, the best way to charge at home.

You can also find other Tesla charging options, such as charge point chargers. This uses the J 1772 port, and the only downside to using this port is that they will only charge your car at 6.5 KW. In this case, your car charger that can charge at about 82 km/hour will not limit you. Instead, the adapter, which does not come with the car kit, is the limiting factor and you have to purchase it separately.

Brief on Tesla Charging Options and their Speeds

Therefore, if you were to rank Tesla charging options from the fastest to the slowest, the fastest would be the Tesla supercharger that can provide 120 KW of charging in a very short span of time. Following that would be the Chardemo. Both of these are DC charging options for Tesla cars.

Nevertheless, Tesla recommends users stick to AC options, and the best one remains as the third-fastest option or the three-phase wall charger. This charger can provide you with an optimum charging rate of 9.6 KW. Following this is the single-phase wall charger and then finally the J1772 charging points that you find at shopping centers.

These entail the myriad of charging options that you have as a Tesla owner.

single-phase, charging, station, tesla, phase, charger

According to recommendations, the best way to charge your Tesla would be to use the three-phase wall charger at your home and charge your car overnight to about 80 to 90 percent.

Tesla’s Home Charging Options and How to Charge

New Tesla owners often have difficulties learning the proper ways to charge a Tesla. To simplify Tesla charging options for homes, you have three different options. The first option is the 110 Volt outlets, and the rest of the two include 230 Volts and a wall connector.

110V Outlet

Every Tesla comes with a car kit that includes this mobile charger. This is a hose-like wire with two ends. On one end, you can find the part that attaches to your car, while on the other end you have some Tesla charging options, one of them being the 110V outlet.

This outlet consists of the lowest level of charging for Tesla Cars.

To set it up, all you have to do is take a mobile adapter and plug one end into the 110V outlet, and the other into your car. The power that you can max out from this outlet is about 4 miles per hour of charge.

230 V Outlet

If you are looking for faster-charging speeds, you have to resort to the 230 V outlet. This charging option is a step up from the 110V outlet. You will find this in your house with a dryer outlet, and people refer to this outlet as a 1450 adapter.

Once you plug this charger into the car, you will notice that the power ramps up to about 32 amps. This equates to about 30 miles per hour with an additional adapter of 14-50 kinds. With this type of adapter, you can ultimately charge a Tesla from zero to a hundred in only 11 hours.

Because most drivers do not find the need to charge from 0 to a hundred percent, the charge time for the 230V outlet gets even shorter in real-world use. This makes for a reasonable charging outlet that can help charge your Tesla EV overnight without any problems.

Tesla Wall Connector Charging Option

The third charging option for charging your Tesla at home is the Tesla Wall Connector. This is something that Tesla owners can purchase from Tesla so that they can charge their cars overnight and enjoy the fruits of convenience.

It also allows you the option to keep your mobile connectors in your car and rids you from the tensions of constantly worrying about it on your commutes. The amount of power you can generate from the wall connector depends on the circuit that your wall connector hooks to.

If you connect the wall charger to a circuit that offers about 60 amps of power, then you can provide the Tesla with the maximum amount of power.

over, many Tesla owners are in favor of using the wall connector because of its simplicity.

All you have to do is unplug the cord, take it over to the car, and plug it in, and you will be able to connect the car to the power source in about a second. To confirm that your car has started charging, you have to make sure that the light turns green on the wall charger as soon as you connect the charger.

Inside the car, you will find that the power ramps up to about 45 miles per hour or 48 amps. This is the maximum power that you can charge a Tesla car with from a residential location. Meaning you can charge the car from zero to a hundred percent in just about seven hours of total charge time.

The reality is that managing all of these charging apparatus is difficult. Using free applications like Optiwatt can be a simple and affordable way to measure your energy consumption and minimize your electricity bill.

How to Supercharge Your Tesla?

Supercharging is one of the fastest ways you can get your Tesla to charge at maximum capacity, quickly. Supercharging your Tesla is very easy. All you have to do is drive to the nearest supercharging station, and plug the supercharger from the stall into your car.

Since your card information is available on the Tesla App, you don’t even have to go through any payment procedure, just directly charge your car, and drive away.

If you have already used superchargers at different locations, you will notice that some superchargers charge faster than others do.

This is because there are three different types of superchargers that you can find. The first one is V1, then comes the V2 and the newest one is the V3. The V1 and V2 can charge about 150 kilowatts of power. This power distributes between two cars. This means that if two cars plug into the same charging stall, then the power divides equally.

While the V1 and V2 were already quick, the V3 superchargers surpassed them and changed the game of supercharging. The V3 superchargers can provide your car with 250 kilowatts of peak charging power, and, on top of that, it does not share this power with other cars.

Despite all that power, your Tesla is likely unable to utilize that much power at once. Each Tesla model, such as the Tesla Model 3 and or the model S have different peak power capacities. While supercharging may seem super convenient, it is important to realize that Tesla recommends you do not regularly use superchargers as they may degrade the battery performance with consistent use.

Not to mention, charging from an outlet is also the more cost-effective option than using superchargers. Nonetheless, Tesla’s Supercharger network allows you to plan a long route in the most time-effective and cost-effective way.

If you would like to find out more about exactly how much it costs to charge your car at home, check out Optiwatt. Optiwatt is a free app that can automatically charge your Tesla during off-peak hours, getting you the cheapest charge possible. It can also track exactly how much it costs to charge your car, and automatically compares it to what you would have spent on gas as well.

Does Tesla Come with Charger?

Yes, each Tesla comes with an adapter for a 110 volt outlet. It allows about 2-4 miles of range per hour of charge.

How Fast Can a Tesla Charge?
