    Throttled supercharger speeds

    How did you find out how many kWh you’ve received? I’d like to know. My supercharging keeps getting throttled lower and lower, starts at about 45kw and goes to about 15. Really Tesla, 1.5C to 4C???? Clearly a free supercharging slap in our face. The funny thing is that when supercharging was...

    Tesla supercharger throttling lawsuit how to join

    And btw, I have the 2020.48.37.1 update and it made my 2013 model S even worse..... peak of 40kw, really Tesla! Wonder if they’ll raise it again once my warranty is up in May. Please publish the name of the lawsuit for this. Googling keeps coming up with the range limitation lawsuit.....

    Tesla supercharger throttling lawsuit how to join

    Just supercharged today and this is getting even worse. At 25% battery I was at 40kw. I end up having to spend over an hour camping in a charging spot. This has gotten progressively worse over the last year. Has anyone been able to contact Tesla and have them undo this? Time for me to look...

    Supercharger - Rockledge, FL

    No lines are painted yet, but they are close to being centered with the bollards. I would think that would be centered in the spot.

    Supercharger - Rockledge, FL

    Latest pictures (14FE), definitely a 12 stall site. Weird orientation. Not parallel to curb. Also seems like they installed them backwards. Although with how far the pilings are from the charger maybe they need that orientation to reach the car. The only other thing I can think of is, maybe...

    Supercharger - Charleston, WV

    Not sure, but they are building a new hotel just off the freeway, I bet that's the location. Waffle House current in front of this site!

    Supercharger - Charleston, WV

    Charleston WV supercharger!! I may have the most travel impactful "supercharger opening" story yet. Next week we are driving from Florida to visit my wife's family, about 70miles south of Charleston. We then drive back to Florida and then fly out a day later from Orlando to Detroit (4...

    bubbles on touchscreen

    I just joined the leaking screen club. Hope they replace my carpet as well..... MS 2013 10xxx 39000 miles This reminds me of the old drive unit epidemic.

    OPT7 LED headlights

    I never did a 30ft picture of the Halogens, only the side by side 6ish foot with alot of stuff in the way..... This was also the non-X fluxbeam.

    OPT7 LED headlights

    Very valid points. The one thing I liked about the OPT7 was their arcbeam lens. It's a separate lens they install on top of the led to get as wide as beam pattern as they can. Supposedly 120 deg per side, so 240 total. Still short of 360 though..... I did replace my Fluxbeam with the new...

    Supercharger - Columbia, SC

    I used this charger this weekend on a drive back from West Virgina. Was able to gap this to Savannah in a 60! No more out of the way Santee! Parking spots are in a very bad location. They are very iceable. All spots would have been iced when I arrived except they had roped a couple off to...

    OPT7 LED headlights

    The cutoff is great identical to the OEM. And the light distribution is also great, as good than the OEM (which is really amazing for an LED). The luman power level is also great, as good or better than OEM. Then why don't they look perfect. Not the rest of this is just an investigative...

    OPT7 LED headlights

    Update on the OPT7 Fluxbeams. After working with the OPT7 folks, I installed the ECM capacitors (that actually came with the bulbs) and the "bulb out" warning indicator issue went away. They now run like the OEM halogens on the little toy car. The lights are really nice. I love the "color"...
