It is known that the CCS connector is only available to owners of Chevrolets, Porsches, BMWs and other non-Tesla cars. Tesla.
The next step will be the ability to charge non-Tesla cars at Tesla-owned AC stations, which Tesla representatives announced for the summer of 2021.
With a special TCP to CSS1 adapter, almost any electric vehicle can be charged with DC power in a short time.
The ability to charge electric vehicles at Tier 2 charging stations, such as Tesla Destinations, already exists and is used by some drivers. This type of charging station can be found near hotels and in mall parking lots. To plug in a Chevrolet Volt, for example, you need to buy an additional adapter.
The difference lies in the charging speed, which is due to the increased power and constant current of the Supercharger charging station. Depending on the electric car model, 30 minutes may be enough time to charge an empty battery at 80%.
One of the main indicators for charging an electric vehicle is the MPH rate. This means how many miles the vehicle travels after one hour of continuous charging. Input power is also limited by the electric vehicle's power supply, often less than 48 amps for Level 1 and 2 chargers, while blowers are DC charging stations (which may be labeled Level 3 or DCFC) and are not covered for electric vehicle power limitations. However, there are limitations on their speed. For example, it is five to ten times faster than a Level 2 charging station plugged into a NEMA 14-50 connector (depending on the electric vehicle).
For example, to charge a Chevy Volt, you must install the Tesla identification and billing app on your smartphone.
A TPC-to-CCS1 adapter (also known as a Tesla-to-CCS adapter) is required to charge Porsche Tycans and other vehicles in North America.
Charging stations communicate with electric cars in their own language, but that language is different for Supercharger charging stations and cars from other manufacturers. That's why the Tesla to CCS adapter includes not only a set of cables and housing, but also a translator with its own software. To ensure maximum interchangeability between charging stations and cars from different manufacturers, the software version is updated over time, so new adapters are theoretically more stable.
The adapter is inserted into the side of the blower. The other end of the adapter plugs into the electric vehicle input on the CCS1 connector. amp; lt; plan> To charge a Porsche Taikan or other non-Tesla vehicle in North America, you will need the TPC-to-CCS1 adapter (also known as the Tesla-to-CCS adapter).
