The Supercharger and Wall Connector are both weather-resistant, and the car itself has a number of sensors to monitor for any potential problems.
However, there are a few things to keep in mind when charging your Tesla in the rain:
- Avoid charging during a thunderstorm. If there is a chance of lightning, it is best to unplug your car until the storm passes.
