Tesla Model 3 Public Charge Cable 

To use the public chargers in New Zealand that have a type 2 socket you will need a Type 2 to Type 2 charge cable.

The model 3 has a 11kWh onboard charger so the ideal cable is the 3 phase 22kWh Type 2 to Type 2 cable. 

This will allow you to charge at 11kWh or add around 75km per hour of charge. They are available in 5m and 8m. You do not require a cable for the Tesla and Charge net chargers as they have a cable attached. 


Tesla Model 3 Charge times

The factory 10A charger will charge your Model 3 from 20% to 80% in around 22 hours at around 15km/h

Estimate charge timing comparison from 20% to 80%. After 80% charging can slow depending on the temperature of the batteries, also as the battery gets full the car balances the cells so charging will slow as it approaches 100%
