Tesla Now Officially Lets Non-Tesla EV Owners Use Superchargers Across The US

Tesla has started to allow drivers of other electric vehicles to use its Supercharger network while also sharing more details that explain how that all actually works.

The opening up of the Supercharger network is something that we’ve been expecting for some time after Tesla trialed the same thing internationally.

Electrek also reports that Tesla had been installing the “Magic Dock” at some Supercharger locations in recent days.

With those Supercharger locations featuring the integrated CCS adapter that is required to charge non-Tesla EVs, all that was left was for Tesla to flick the switch and enable everything. That’s now happened, with a new support page also detailing how it works.

To charge at a Tesla Supercharger people will need to download the Tesla app on their iPhone or Android phone and then use that to begin charging. The app includes instructions on how to use the Supercharger, as well as handling any charging fees that are applied.

Tesla does note that it can take up to two minutes for the Supercharger to actually start delivering power, so that’s something to keep in mind if you’re plugging in.

Initial reports suggest that the number of Superchargers available for non-Tesla charging is relatively limited, but we can expect that to change in due course. If you’re interested in leaning more, check out Tesla’s explanation video and support documentation for additional information.
