I just enabled the ability to charge on CCS on my 2018 Tesla Model 3.  I plan to do a few long distance trips on the US East Coast over the next few weeks to months.  I want to try out charging exclusively at EA, EVgo and other networks that are available on my routes.  It will be a good test to see how good the Ocean will be on similar trips.  Will the routes be similar or longer?  How about charging times?  All good things to investigate.

My first testing on an EVgo 350 kW charger two miles from my house went fairly well.  I charged from 1% up to 20% before a charger error.  I switched to the other charging cable and resumed 20-99%.

@mtn-ranger Nice video! How long did it take you to do the modification part to support the adapter? I purchased a CHAdeMO adapter before I bought the Tesla Model 3 and have never used it once. Doh!

I did the retrofit the previous weekend.  If I wasn’t documenting the video, it would have taken about 30-40 minutes.  15 minutes of that just waiting for the high voltage battery to disconnect.  It was fairly easy compared to installing the auto frunk and replacement taillights.

I borrowed a CHAdeMO adapter from my local Tesla club to test out.  It maxes out at 50 kW.  One quarter the level of this CCS adapter.

Your car may already support CCS.  If you check the software window and press more information, it should let you know.
