Tesla drivers can run into various problems of compatibility since Tesla uses a different adapter. Most of the public charging stations use SAE J1772 chargers that are compatible with most brands of electric vehicles but not Tesla. As of now, there are only 4,367 Level 2 charging stations located in the US that are compatible with Tesla. In comparison, there are a total of 28,846 J1772 Level 2 charging stations in the US.

As seen in the chart above, the percentage of charging stations that are compatible with Tesla is only 15% even though Tesla is one of the most popular electric vehicles in the US.
In 2019, Tesla had sold 158,925 units of Model 3, and Model 3 alone accounted for 81% of the US electric vehicle sales that year. With Tesla’s impressive sales figures, it is strange to see how 85% of Level 2 public charging stations still do not charge Tesla cars directly.
