For those who thinking of several Wall Connectors in their home, they can consider taking advantage of the charger’s power sharing feature. Made possible by unit-to-unit Wi-Fi connectivity, this functionality allows up to 6 Wall Connectors to dynamically share the total available power in one’s premise.

Speaking about Wi-Fi connectivity, it also allows the Wall Connector to receive over-the-air updates and provide remote diagnostics access. In addition to that, users can monitor charging usage and set up a charging schedule through the Tesla app, even if they are using the Wall Connector with a non-Tesla EV.
