Comparing The Tesla Wall Connector Gen 2 And Gen 3

Telsa is working hard to provide consumers with high-quality, innovative products. As the owner of a Tesla electric vehicle, you’ll need to keep that vehicle charged. It is wise to install a charger in your home. Doing so will ensure that you’re able to recharge your car at night, so it’ll be ready for the morning commute.

You need to learn more about the Gen 2 and Gen 3 Tesla Chargers. Which is best?

Differences

Looks

First and foremost, you should take a look at both chargers. Both are attractive. The new charger features a glass front and a white background.

Power Specifications

When comparing the two, you will discover that the Gen 2 connector is more powerful. It can deliver a maximum of 80 amps of power to an electric vehicle. Meanwhile, the Gen 3 charger is limited to 48 amps. Just remember that the difference isn’t dramatic.

After all, most electric vehicles only charge at 48 amps.

Length Of Cable

Having a lengthier cable will make a big difference. The Gen 2 charger is better here because it offers 24 feet. As for the Gen 3 charger, it only has 18 feet. If you need a longer cord, you’ll want to buy the Gen 2 connector.

Thickness Of Cable

Gen 2 connectors feature thicker and heavier cables. You know they’re going to last, but they’re difficult to carry. The Gen 3 connectors have thinner and lighter cords. You won’t have any trouble hauling them around.

Wi-Fi Connectivity

Would you like to be able to control the charger from your smartphone? With Gen 3 chargers, you can. You won’t be able to do this with the Gen 2 chargers.

Load Sharing Capabilities

Gen 3 chargers are better in terms of load sharing. With a Gen 3 charger, you will be able to share the load across 16 devices. With the older charger, you can charge four devices at once.

Pricing

Surprisingly, the price is identical. Both chargers will cost you $500. The price makes it difficult to pick a winner. In addition to this, some consumers will prefer Gen 3 chargers, while others will like the Gen 2. Both chargers are reliable, but Gen 3 offers Wi-Fi connectivity.
