I wasn't able to find this topic covered so I apologize if it is a rehash but I am planning to use a supercharger for the first time on an upcoming road trip and had a question.
Has anyone played with reducing the amp. limit while charging to avoid excess heat while charging?
Some simple math reveals that the new Roadster should be capable of charging at at least 320kW. Let's take a look:
-The Long Range Model 3, with a 75kWh battery, can achieve a peak charging rate of 120kW on a Supercharger
-The base model new Roadster has a 200kWh battery
-(120kW/75kWh) * 200kWh...
Elon's recent decision to offer either $ 5K refund at the cost of giving up free supercharging implicitly values the latter at $ 5K.
Many people think its being overvalued, which some feel its a good deal.
What would you pay for free lifetime supercharging for life?
I've had my car for nearly a month now and every time I use a supercharger, as long as it's pulling in about 50 kW or higher, the battery pack will make loud banging noises. It sounds like a hammer hitting the car or like flexing a large piece of steel and it popping. It becomes louder and more...
On Monday we tried some new-to-us superchargers in Peru, IL. The screen in the car reported a cost of $3.60 for our charging session, but when I look online on my tesla account, I was charged $5.56. Is this sort of discrepancy common?
Yesterday we drove our Model 3 over to Peru, IL and used the superchargers there. A few minutes after connecting, we heard (and felt) quite a "thunk." I let the charger go beyond this point, for a total charge time of 12 minutes. Nothing else odd happened. The charging rate was amazing, topping...
Went to chage my TM3 at our nearest Tesla supercharging station and I was at 26% charged it to 90% which came out to $26.94. it's cheaper than gas but I was surprised at the cost. I previously filled up at work (no supercharger just regular EV charging station) and it cost me a little under $5...
I'm going out with a group of friends in August to chill out in Halifax and area for a week. We did the trip last year after our wedding using my wife's work van (Grand Caravan), and we're really hoping to not have to do it again.
We had originally planned to take our Model 3 Long range. To...
Just wanted to share some quick thoughts as I finally picked up my model 3 (camped out on 3/31/16 and first time Tesla owner)
The experience picking up the car was amazing. Friendly customer service who took their time and went the extra mile. I think not taking delivery at the quarter...
So I went ahead and made a rough calculator to assist in understanding the overall cost that is associated with the use of a supercharger with a model 3. If there is anything that I could improve on please let me know and I will do my best to adjust for that.
10% at 109 kW in 7 minutes
20% at 116 kW in 11 minutes
30% at 116 kW in 15 minutes
40% at 116 kW in 19 minutes
50% at 112 kW in 23 minutes
60% at 83 kW in 28 minutes
70% at 67 kW in 34 minutes
80% at 51 kW in 42 minutes
90% at 32 kW in 53 minutes
100% at 14 kW in 72 minutes
reddit user teslabargain noticed the terms for the lifetime supercharging has changed again. Now it is listed as carrying over to any new Model S / X purchased by the end of this year. Contrary to the understanding from a month or so ago that sounded like ANY future Model S / X purchase by an...
A few days ago a Tesla removed all references to Supercharging from their CPO site.
Many were thinking,including myself, that means Tesla is removing Free lifetime Supercharging for CPOs and moving their fleet of used cars to the new credit system.
Today I received positive confirmation from...
So it has been stated that Tesla and Elon have not decided whether to offer "Free Supercharging" to the Model 3 Owners. Only that Supercharging capability will be "made available."
(1) Will this decision be made before we 'pull the trigger' on Configuring in Design Studio and final...
