Max Charge Speeds and Min Supercharging Costs – Pro Tip

The Tesla Navigation system is a trusted guide for most drivers, but did you know that it can be a bit too conservative when it comes to charging planning? This is where some pro tips can come in handy, especially if you want to decrease charging times and save money.

To start, consider using superchargers with about 10% of charge left. This can significantly increase charging speeds and efficiency, allowing you to add about 65 miles in just 4 minutes or 125 miles in 10 minutes. If your supercharger is billed per minute, this can mean big savings over time.

Another tip is to prioritize V3 superchargers if possible. These newer charging stations can deliver up to 250kw of power, allowing you to charge even faster than before. By being strategic about when and where you charge, you can make the most of your time on the road and keep your costs under control.
