Long Range [310 mi] AWD Tesla Model 3 w/ Autopilot
🔹FREE TRICKLE CHARGING
No smoking or pets, please.
How do I supercharge?
To find the Tesla Superchargers, look for the Red Lightning bolts on the Tesla map inside the vehicle on the Touchscreen Display, or you can navigate to:
When you arrive at the Tesla Supercharger: reverse into the stall, grab the cord at the station, press the button on the cord's handle to open the charge port on the vehicle, then you can plug it in and it will charge the vehicle (automatically billing me.) Tesla Superchargers will average a charging rate of around ~250-300 mi/hr, but I have seen it go past +450 mi/hr.
"Idle time" at Tesla Superchargers will accrue fees. If any "idle time" fees accumulate during the trip I will, unfortunately, have to bill you (Tesla fee is $0.50-$1.00/minute for idle time.)
How do I use a Public/Trickle charger?
The "free" deal is only valid for chargers on the 'Blink Charging' network. Find the nearest one by searching at:
Upon arriving at the trickle charger: reverse into the stall, inside the center console of the Tesla you will find a J1772 adapter (black, about the size of a fist), take that and open the charge port on the vehicle by selecting the lightning bolt on the Tesla (as pictured on the Touchscreen Display), then take the 'Blink Charging' RFID card out of the center console, and swipe it at the charging station to initiate the session (automatically billing me.) Now, exit the vehicle, and take the cord (attached to the charging station) and connect the J1772 adapter to it's end, take all that, and plug it into the Tesla's charge port.
The J1772 adapter is necessary for most public chargers that aren't Tesla brand Superchargers. Public chargers tend to average ~30 mi/hr charge rate.
Help! The J1772 adapter is stuck in the Tesla's charge port and I cannot retrieve it.
The most convenient way to unplug a Model 3 from a J1772 public charging station is to remove both the charging station handle and the Tesla J1772 adapter 'at the same time':
1. Ensure that Model 3 is unlocked.
2. Hold the public charging handle with one hand.
3. Hold the Tesla J1772 adapter with the other hand.
4. Press and hold the button on the public charging handle, then pull outward with both hands in
order to remove the handle and adapter together.
5. Press and hold the button again to remove the adapter from the handle.
If the charging station handle separates from the adapter, Model 3 automatically locks the adapter in the
charge port. To remove it, use the touchscreen to unlock the charge port.
