Tesla Charging For Dummies

Wondering what the difference is between a Tesla destination charger and a Tesla supercharger?

Tesla Destination Chargers (pictured below): Chrome coloured chargers that say "TESLA" on the front. Destinations chargers provide 8KW of charging power and generally take 8 hours to fully charge a Tesla.

Tesla Superchargers (second and third image below): Large white stations that loosely resemble the shape of a gas pump and say "TESLA" across the top in red lettering. Supercharging stations provide 72KW OR 120KW of power and can fully charge a Tesla in as little as 45 - 60 minutes.

Both types of charging stations are exclusively for Tesla vehicles. Tesla vehicles, however, can plug into any E.V. charging station using certain plug-in adapters.
