In the installation manual for the wall connector there is a rotary switch that sets the maximum current that the wall connector is allowed to draw (based on your wire gauge used and circuit breaker size). If I go for max, using a 100A breaker and appropriate wire gauge, I can set it for 80A. Does this mean that the Model 3 will actually charge at an 80A rate? I think I read somewhere that a wall charger is limited to 32A with a Model 3. And if that's the case, why do I have an option to go as high as 80A? Does that only apply to a model X or S?
