“What is the cost to install a Tesla charger?” That’s a question that we receive quite often at Peak EVS. In this article, we will cover everything that you need to know in order to start the installation process.

Choosing the Right Tesla Charger for You

Before you can install a Tesla Wall Connector charger, you need to choose the right one for your car and lifestyle. Most Tesla owners choose to buy a Tesla Wall Connector charger but there are plenty of other high-quality chargers that can be used with the correct adapter such as ChargePoint, Enel X Juicebox, and Autel. It’s important to factor in things such as wifi, Bluetooth, cable length, and hardwire vs Nema 14-50 when selecting the right charger for your situation. You can find more on our charger page.
