EVANNEX has developed an exclusive collection of Charge Port Skinz™ that will make you smile every time you open the charge port of your Tesla Model 3. Our Charge Port Skinz™ are made from high quality, weather-proof vinyl. They adhere directly to the charge port surface and can be applied with no tools or cutting. For those who want to upgrade the surface using a conventional feel, we offer a Carbon Fiber look. But for those who want something a little more whimsical, we have skinz we call — Lightning, Nebula, and Matrix. The decision and the smiles are yours.
The Tesla Model 3 OEM charge port surface is a utlilitarian matte black. That works from a functional standpoint, but some Model 3 owners want a more custom look. EVANNEX has developed an exclusive collection of Charge Port Skinz™ that will make you smile every time you open the charge port of your Model 3.
Our Charge Port Skinz™ transform your charge port from a utilitarian surface to something special. Made from custom-designed and precision-cut high quality, weather-proof vinyl, our Skinz adhere directly to the charge port surface and can be applied without tools or cutting.
The Carbon Fiber Skin. For those who want to upgrade the surface with a conventional feel, we offer a "carbon fiber" look. It dresses up your charge port surface, but offers a more aggressive sport-performance look.
But for Model 3 owners who want a more whimsical look, we offer three Skinz options:
The Lightning Skin. Model 3 is, after all, an electric vehicle. What better way to emphasize that fact than with our “Lightning” skin, designed to symbolize the high voltage nature of your Model 3.
The Nebula Skin. Model 3’s grandfather, the Tesla Roadster, recently headed into space and might someday move toward distant galaxies. Our “Nebula” skin celebrates that event, symbolizing Tesla’s efforts to aim for the stars.
The Matrix Skin. To say that Model 3 is high-tech is an understatement. Although the vehicle is not a massive simulation (at least we don’t think so), it does represent automotive computing at its zenith. The “Matrix” skin’s vortex of 1s and zeros is emblematic of that fact.
EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz™ are made using premium vinyl film designed and fabricated for strength, fade and weather resistance, and long life. All use specially-designed adhesives that facilitate surface placement, hold the skin firmly in place, but can be removed with relative ease if you decide to change the look of your charge port.
We captured the shape required for each of our EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz™ and fed basic surface parameters into our CAD system for refinement and testing. Artwork for the Lightning, Nebula, Carbon Fiber and Matrix skins were then added, and the finished shape was cut using specialized computer controlled equipment.

EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz™ will not interfere with the opening or closing or your charge port door or with vehicle charging in any way.
Why do I need EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz?
Stated simply, to change the look of your charge port and make it unique. It’s important to note that EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz allow you to change the look of your charge port at relatively low cost. If at some point in the future you want to go back to the OEM surface, vinyl is easy to remove with no damage to the OEM surface. It’s also possible to change the look of your Model 3 charge port on a periodic basis by applying different skinz when the spirit moves you.
Are EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz difficult to install?
No, installation is straightforward. But patience and a steady hand are required. Complete Installation Instructions and an Installation Video are provided.
Are special tools required?
Do I need to cut or trim the EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz?
No. The Skinz have been specifically designed to fit the Model 3 charge port surface without any requirement for cutting or trimming.
Do you provide instructions for applying the skinz?
We have developed detailed step-by-step written instructions for EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz. In addition, EVANNEX provides an installation video.
Is surface preparation complicated?
Not al all. The surface should be cleaned with a 60 % water/40 % isopropyl alcohol mix applied using a lint free cloth or paper towel. The objective is to remove all dust, dirt, and greasy residue before vinyl installation commences.
Can I remove the vinyl if I decide to go back to the OEM surface finish?
Absolutely. Vinyl can be removed at any time. In fact, because skinz are relatively inexpensive, some owners purposely remove their skin periodically and replace it with different skin to change the look of their charge port.
Are EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz cut to fit?
Yes. All Skinz have been designed to provide coverage of the charge port surface area. We have designed them so that none of the skinz surface is visable through the gaps between the charge port door and the rear fender surface.
Will EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz fit the charge port for Model S or Model X?
No. The skins have been designed specifically for Model 3. However, if you have interest in skins for Model S or Model X, contact us and we'll put you on the waiting list.
What is the projected life of EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz?
The Skinz should have a useful life of between 3 and 5 years, possibly a bit longer.
Will the vinyl fade with time?
In general, vinyl is impervious to sun damage and will not fade or otherwise discolor.
Are the skinz weather resistant?
Yes, moisture and temperature should not impact them.
Can the skinz be scratched or otherwise damaged during regular use?
In general, vinyl is remarkably strong and resilent. However, if a sharp or abrasive object comes into hard contact with the vinyl, it can be scratched or torn, but that’s true of just about any surface.
Are Charge Port Skinz easy to remove?
Yes. The specialized adhesives used for the skinz hold firmly, but the skinz can be peeled off with little difficulty and leave no residue
If I decide to remove a skin after some period of time, can I re-install it again at a later date?
No. Once the vinyl has set on the surface (requiring about 24 hours), its adhesion becomes stronger. It can still be removed without difficulty, but removal will stretch and potentially tear the vinyl. It cannot be reused.
What is your return policy for the vinyl kits?
All EVANNEX products can be returned in an unused (and undamaged) condition within 30 days of purchase. However, once the backing is removed from any of the EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz, it may not be returned for credit or exchange. The reason is that the skin cannot be resold once the backing has been removed. It must be returned in its original packaging, with shipping and insurance paid by the purchaser. Product Registration must be completed prior to return.
How long does it take to receive my order?
For EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz, you can expect delivery between 1 to 2 weeks from the day you place your order.
Do EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz ship internationally?
Yes, the EVANNEX Charge Port Skins does ship internationally using USPS International. Please be certain to refer to our specific policies and requirements for international orders before you purchase EVANNEX Charge Port Skinz for international delivery.
