Just bought a new ELW and super stoked about getting some rides in!

Quick question on charging (I looked through the forum, but didn’t see this answered yet...apologies if it’s a duplicate)

I also have a Tesla and while I know the Tesla Level 2 home / destination chargers aren’t going to be faster than the L1, has anyone used something like the TeslaTap to charge their Livewire at home or on the road?


Thanks!

Andrew

Btw, for all that are interested, the TeslaTap works perfectly with the ELW. I ended up getting the TeslaTap Mini as it will fit under the seat with the standard charger. Works perfectly!

Following instructions is very important! Plug it into the Tesla charger and wait 30 seconds before plugging it into the bike. I got over zealous once and plugged straight into Tesla and then the bike and it didn’t work. Had to unplug both and follow the procedure. Have charged several times with 100% success.

Hey, I do have a Tesla too and a home charger L 2 type 2 installed, not the Tesla original but a better high performing one - not that it charges my Tesla any faster. It has a 32 Amp fuse and I use it to charge my Live Wire without any problems. As with my Tesla it charges at the same pace as the L 1 charger that is included with the bike would have done. Works perfect! Here in Norway it is strongly recommended not to use L1 chargers that are plugged into ordinary sockets due to the fire hazard.
