Tesla has recently launched a new at-home wall charger that works with other electric vehicles, reports Electrek. The new Level 2 wall is now available to the company’s online store. Tesla has also started allowing non-Tesla EVs to charge at Supercharger stations in the Netherlands.

The new charger uses a standard J1772 connector, that means it would work fine with other electric vehicles in North America. It’s competitively priced, too, at $415 and has to be installed by a professional electrician.

Tesla says it can charge at up to 9.6kW and is designed for both indoor or outdoor installation. It’s basically a reworked version of the Gen 2 Tesla home charger, though, meaning it won’t have some of the more advanced features (like Wi-Fi) found on the Gen 3 version Tesla currently sells to its owners.

Tesla’s new wall charger and the opening of the Supercharger network shows the company is ready to take advantage of the many new EVs that are on sale or close to it. While many legacy automakers sell their own branded home chargers, the third-party market for home chargers is full of mostly unrecognizable brands.
