This tool helps you quickly calculate how much it will cost to charge your Tesla.

## How to Use the Tesla Charging Cost Calculator

To use this calculator, follow these steps:

- Enter the size of your Tesla’s battery in kilowatt-hours (kWh).
- Enter your local energy cost per kWh in dollars.
- Enter your Tesla’s current battery level as a percentage.
- Enter your desired battery level as a percentage.
- Click on the “Calculate” button to see the cost to charge your Tesla to the desired battery level.

## How the Calculator Works

The calculator works by determining the energy required to charge your Tesla from the current battery level to the desired battery level:

**Formula:**

Required Energy (kWh) = (Desired Battery Level (%) – Current Battery Level (%)) / 100 * Battery Size (kWh)

Cost to Charge ($) = Required Energy (kWh) * Cost per kWh ($)

## Limitations

Please note:

- The calculator doesn’t account for charging efficiency losses, which can vary.
- Ensure all values are entered correctly for an accurate calculation.
- This is a simplified estimate and actual costs may vary based on your electricity plan and other factors.
