What’s Included in the Plugless Upgrade for Tesla Model S?
The Plugless upgrade includes all parts and labor required to upgrade your Model S with wireless charging capabilities as well as the wireless charging station itself.
How does wireless charging for Tesla Model S work?
Plugless uses inductive charging technology to eliminate the need to plug in your Tesla.
Plugless uses two magnetic coils, one in the parking pad and the other installed on your upgraded Tesla Model S, to pass power over the air gap.
Did you work with Tesla on this technology?
Will Plugless affect my vehicle warranty?
No. Like any other fully-reversible vehicle upgrade, adding Plugless as an aftermarket accessory can’t automatically void your warranty. In more than 3 years of installations across the USA and Canada there’s not been one manufacturer warranty issue.
We further protect Plugless owners with our own industry-leading “Love It” Guarantee, which specifically states that if there’s any impact to your vehicle warranty caused by Plugless, we will cover the costs. So if there’s any risk with your warranty, it’s on us.
How does the Plugless upgrade happen?
Your Tesla upgrade will be performed at your local EV auto shop by a Plugless-certified technician. The whole upgrade process takes ~2 hours, and our Customer Care team coordinates the upgrade appointment. Expect a great customer experience.
How fast is wireless charging for Tesla Model S with Plugless?
A Plugless-enabled Model S charges itself with 20-25 miles of range per hour parked. For the average daily driving distance, a Plugless-enabled Model S is fully recharged in about 1 hour and 40 minutes.
What are the electrical requirements?
Plugless for the Model S requires a 208/240 volt, 50 Amp, 2-pole, dedicated circuit rated for “continuous duty”. The Plugless charging station can use the same NEMA 14-50 outlet as the Tesla mobile connector, or it can be directly hardwired to a home circuit by your electrician.

In fact, the worse the weather conditions, the more you’ll love how your Tesla takes care of charging for you.
Will it work with Summon?
