  4. 4. Universal Mobile Connector The Universal Mobile Connector (UMC) can be used with any electrical outlet for which you have an adapter 110V is very, very slow—avoid it except in emergencies! extensions for the UMC can be acquired in the aftermarket—be certain they have been designed specifically for EV charging the J1772 plug is the most common for level 2 public charging. A J1772 adapter is provided with the Model S 4
  5. 5. Charging Adapters and Port—I Most people keep their charging adapters in the trunk, but there is a special space in the back of the glove box for a J1772 charging adapter EVannex also provides a charger adapter storage solution The easiest way to open the charging port is to hold the UMC sightly above and to the left of it and press the button on the top of the UMC connector (@NickHowe) 5
  6. 6. Charging Adapters and Port—II If the charge port is stuck closed it can be pried open using a small plastic tool while pushing firmly on the bottom right corner (@NickHowe) closure is magnetic so nothing will break 6
  7. 7. Charging Adapters and Port—III If there is a power outage, your UMC connector may not release Tap the touchscreen charge port button (even though it shows the door is open) and the UMC connector will release double clicking on the key fob will also release the connector (@NigelM and @Mario Kadastik) 7
  8. 8. Charging Settings The amperage setting for charging is GPS aware the Model S will remember the appropriate amperage setting based on GPS location and will use default if the location is unrecognized (@DaveVA) If you charge at the “range” setting, that setting will not revert to standard the next time you charge. You must reset to standard manually (@JoshG) 8
  9. 9. Charging Timing Each 10 percent of battery charge will take about an hour. Battery charge indicator has markings every 10%, so if you are at 60 percent of full charge, it will take about three hours to get to 90% of full charge (@MNGreen) If you have a HPWC, each 10 percent of battery charge will take about half an hour. (@MNGreen) 9
  10. 10. Charging Timing 110V 10 - 20 amp —provides 3 - 5 miles of range per hour of charging 240V 30 amp (level 2)—provides 18 - 22 miles of range per hour of charging 240V 40 amp (NEMA 14-50)—provides approximately 26 - 30 miles of range per hour of charging HPWC—provides approximately 55 - 60 miles of range per hour of charging Tesla Supercharger—provides 150 - 170 miles of range in 20 minutes 10 0 40 80 120 160 200 110V 240-30 240-40 HPWC SC
