Default Charging Karma with Tesla Charger - 32 Amp

Folks,

I just purchased 2012 Fisker Karma and I am wondering if it's OK to use the Tesla charger (32 Amp) to charge my Karma. I bought the adapter that goes from Tesla to Fisker but I am afraid to use it. Is it OK to use it or is it too much voltage/Amp for Fisker? Please let me know if anyone else is using it and it's safe to do so.

Thank you,

Yes. The OBCM on the Fisker will step the wattage down to 3.3kw no matter what so you are fine. Your 32 amp designation is the capability of the charger, not how much it will be pushing. Amperage is based on the demand so the Karma will only demand as it can use in essence

I've been using a TeslaTap with a Tesla charger for over a year. No issues.

Also good on road trips; using Tesla destination chargers.
