I am having a level 3 charging station installed at my business. It is a 480 Volt 63 Amp DC charger. "Blink"
Since the Tesla has chargers on board that convert AC to DC, does it have any effect hooking up a DC charger? Is it even allowed? Are there any advantages or disadvantages to having that much juice entering the vehicle? (other than time) Does a DC charger have any negative effects on the life of the battery?
Thanks in advance for any input.
