Yes, it is okay to leave your Tesla charger plugged in. Tesla vehicles are designed to maintain their battery over time, and will not overcharge when plugged in for an extended period. In fact, it is recommended to keep your Tesla charger plugged in whenever possible, as this will help to preserve the battery and extend its lifespan.
When your Tesla is plugged in, the onboard computer will automatically manage the battery charge, only charging it to the level that you have set. For example, if you have set your car to charge to 80%, the computer will stop charging once the battery reaches 80%. This helps to prevent the battery from being overcharged, which can damage it over time.
There are a few things to keep in mind when leaving your Tesla charger plugged in:
- Make sure that the charger is properly installed and grounded.
- Do not overload the circuit that the charger is connected to.
- Avoid using extension cords.
- If you are going to be away from your car for an extended period of time, you may want to consider disconnecting the charger to prevent it from being damaged by a power surge or outage.
Overall, it is perfectly safe to leave your Tesla charger plugged in. In fact, it is recommended to do so to help preserve the battery and extend its lifespan.
