This week, Tesla introduced a new wall charger that can plug directly into a NEMA 14-50 standard American wall outlet.

Mid- and standard-range vehicles still charge at 32 amps, much like the mobile wall connector.

Both the new wall charger and the electrician-installed wall connector cost $500, but the new charger that is NEMA 14-50-compatible obviously won't require electrician's fees if you have an accessible outlet.

The Tesla Wall Connecter offers the fastest charging speeds, but according to Tesla, this new wall charger is 25 percent faster at charging than the Gen 2 mobile wall connector.

As far as charging speed, it seems to sit somewhere between the high-end hardwired charger and the mobile charging kit.

The Baltimore Sun reported on Wednesday that the Maryland Public Service Commission (PSC) authorized four of the state's biggest utilities to install 5,000 residential, workplace, and public chargers.
