    I think my Portable Charger is dying and I'm looking for a better solution.

    That's exactly what I'm looking for! Any idea where he got it?

    I think my Portable Charger is dying and I'm looking for a better solution.

    Another question.. Does the Wall Charger need to communicate in some way with the vehicle, or does it communicate with the part that's physically plugged in? If I have the wall charger locked up in a solid steel box with only a hole for the cable to come out of, I want to make sure there won't...

    I think my Portable Charger is dying and I'm looking for a better solution.

    I have a 2019 Model 3 performance that I charge at my restaurant exclusively (a lot cheaper electricity cost than home). Lately, I have to reset my charger 3-5 times before it finally works. I've been getting errors in the car that the charger had a GFI fault (There is no moisture anywhere...

    I can’t seem to find a true answer.

    So to clarify a few things. First, the electricity usage graph in the vehicle lists "rated" Wh, and it's highlighted at 250. If I go below 250, the line drops below the rated. Above, and it goes above the rated, which is why I was under the impression that 250kwh is the "goal" to get the...

    I can’t seem to find a true answer.

    Sorry for coming back so late, but I decided to play with settings, jump back and forth between percentage battery remaining and how many miles remaining and so on. So here is my current stats, what I've figured out, and I still think there may be issues, but would love everyone's feedback...

    I can’t seem to find a true answer.

    I’ve seen some posts that power draw while in park is not calculated in your power usage (IE, using the AC in park etc), but it seems people are saying it is calculated in your kWh used while driving. I’m getting conflicting results on my Tesla, and trying to figure out what the deal is. 2019...

    Seatbelt 'burn-in' on white seats?

    As Nocturnal said.. this has nothing to do with Warranty. It has to do with damages that happened while in the possession of their service center. If they hit a wall with your bumper and damaged it, the bumper wouldn't be a warranty repair either. It would be an insurance repair on their part...

    Tankless water heaters are terrible....

    It really depends on your application. A homeowner such as myself for example, that rarely uses hot water (take a shower, then I'm gone all day), would benefit greatly from a tankless (gas tankless for me). The gas turns on ONLY when I demand hot water, then turns off as soon as I'm done with...

    Germany says we are wrong....

    According to Germany.. the combination of the ecological cost of producing the Tesla Vehicle, Batteries, and electricity to recharge them is greater than the use of diesel... So trying to wrap my head around their concepts, there is a few things to consider. Tesla, from my understanding, has...

    Summon seems like a silly party trick to me

    Davecolene, That's what gets me.. it was promised 3 years ago.. implying that when they are promising such an item, it should be near ready for release when they announce it. Much like a movie doesn't start advertising trailers until it's most of the way completed. Instead, it seems more like...

    Summon seems like a silly party trick to me

    The other thing you forget is some people don't like to get soaking wet when it's pouring rain... it has some utility to it. Or perhaps you are carrying a heavy object you need to load up. It takes a lot less effort to have the vehicle come to you, then putting the package down, walking to the...

    Has anyone used trash cans etc to test the limits of Summon?

    So as many people are exploring with the new advanced summon, I've had a lot of close calls on my very limited tests, and I don't know whether the close calls were not "close calls" but merely me not trusting in the technology to do what it should do. I, being just to the side of an aisle of...

    A long range Hybrid Tesla, thinking outside of the box...

    I admit, this design would sound odd while driving, but realistically, with such a small engine, piped properly, it could be a whisper quiet engine, and you really wouldn't notice it.

    A long range Hybrid Tesla, thinking outside of the box...

    @Uncle Paul Just looked up the details on the i3. It's closer to my concept, but still not there. It has a 42.2kwh battery pack, and the 2 cylinder engine doesn't kick on until you are 5% battery life. It's being used as a battery backup, rather than the main power source. Have that engine...

    A long range Hybrid Tesla, thinking outside of the box...

    @Uncle Paul That's the model everyone is using.. Not the model I'm talking about. I just looked up all of the options on the I8. It has a 6 speed transmission on the gas motor (in my design, you wouldn't need a transmission on the gas motor), an 11.8 gallon fuel tank, and it's hp reported is...
