Plugless Electrical Guide and Requirements

Plugless uses a simple electrical setup

All you need is a 240V outlet near your parking space

For Model S and i3

Nema 14-50 Receptacle

For Volt and LEAF

Nema 14-50 Receptacle

No Outlet? Don’t worry.

Plugless uses the same setup as a standard corded charger. So your electrician can easily install the outlet for you. Here’s the info your electrician might ask for:

Detailed Electrical Requirements

208-240V Single Phase AC

30A for Chevy Volt and Nissan LEAF systems
50A for Tesla Model S and BMW i3

Service Panel:
Dedicated 2-pole breaker rated for continuous use

Control Panel Wiring Inputs:
Line 1, Line 2, and Ground

Receptacle: (For indoor use ONLY)
Volt & LEAF: NEMA 6-30
Tesla Model S & BMW i3: NEMA 14-50

Works both indoors and out

We recommend that outdoor installation is performed by a certified electrician

Instead of using an outlet, your electrician can directly connect (also known as hardwiring) the Control Panel to your 240-volt circuit. You can install this way indoors, as well, but it is required for outdoor use.
