Pics and Info: Inside the Tesla 100kWh Battery Pack | wk057's SkieNET
Jason Hughes on Twitter
So I recently purchased the first known salvage auction Tesla with the new 100kWh...
After nearly two months, we finally settled our property damage claim after being rear ended in our 2016 Tesla Model S 90D. Insurance claims are something many of us dread about owning a Tesla, a risk we acknowledged going in. I thought I'd share the experience and the outcome in the hope it will help someone else. As I shared...
First, a bit of a warning to those easily offended by anything negative about Tesla: I've posted several threads about the actual capacities of Tesla battery packs. Raw data with mixed reception. Unfortunately it seems like any time anyone posts a thread that puts Tesla in a negative light most of them tend to get overrun by posts that either...
It looks like the new battery architecture that was mentioned by Elon and JB used in P100D pack is outlined in US Patent Application Publication US 2015/0244036 A1 titled ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM WITH HEAT PIPE THERMAL MANAGEMENT.
I made an attempt at comprehensive search of all Tesla patents, but could not find any other that would be consistent...
Model S (70 RWD Coil Spring Suspension) flooded in my garage on August 27 in Houston. I thought I'd share details about my experience thus far that may be of interest to the community.
The car ultimately sat in about 22 inches of water (measured from ground), probably 21 near the front and 23 near the back due to incline of garage.
Hi Everyone -
The peak charging rate possible in a lithium-ion cell will slightly decline after a very large number of high-rate charging sessions. This is due to physical and chemical changes inside of the cells.
Our fast-charge control technology is designed to keep the battery safe and to preserve the maximum amount of cell capacity...
Dear Tesla Motors,
Over the past couple of years I've called Tesla out several times for misleading or flat out falsely advertised specs. The 691 "HP" issue, the 285 miles of range on a P85D, the 81 kWh 85's, etc. Well, adding another one to the pile:
Upgrading a software limited "60" to a to "75" actually buys you 10 kWh, not 15 kWh.
Lots of misinformation in this thread, as well as a lot of misconceptions. I am in the leather/vinyl/upholstery supply distribution business. My company is a supplier to the automotive aftermarket, marine, aircraft, and commercial markets. I grew up around fabrics and vinyls, and I know them very well.
I'm not here to change anybody's...
Ever since the 100D came out, I have been planning to upgrade from a 70D. The only reservation I've had is AP1 vs AP2's feature gap dramatically affecting my road trips. I eagerly arranged an AP2 test drive when 8.1 came out. I've had 17,000 miles in the last 8 months with AP1, and just finished around 150 miles of AP2 driving in a S P90D with...
Today I was reading the following thread (which is wonderful by the way) about the known and unknown properties of the HW2 camera suite. I suggest you read it if you're into highly technical stuff:
AP2.0 Cameras: Capabilities and Limitations?
However, even after seven months since release, nobody has decided to disassemble the...
Hi everyone. I just got off the phone with Tesla with some disturbing news.
My car has approximately 30,000 miles on it. I regularly use CHADeMo to charge my car, with the occasional Supercharger charge on road trips. On my last road trip, I noticed that my supercharging rate was significantly reduced, usually staying between 75 kw and 90 kw....
UPDATE on this terrible accident -
Earlier today I talked with a crew of police & firemen who had responded to this horror. I learned that the testimony they took from the scarcely-injured Model X driver included the following extremely interesting material (I need to paraphrase here):
"I saw nothing. All of a sudden my X slammed on its...
At some point within the last month or so Tesla has added code to the firmware updater on the car that prioritizes firmware patch downloads when on WiFi and will delay downloading patches when not on WiFi.
The update server will now give the updater on the car a timeout date for when to give up trying to get the update if the car never...
You are absolutely incorrect in this one. I do this every day in the commercial environment.
When the robot follows your lead it writes its own code concerning movement. That's absolutely true. There is no static coding anymore - written by humans on commercial robots. X-Y-Z coordinates and function are totally follow me written....
Methods for resetting various features in the Model X:
Press and hold both scroll buttons for a few seconds. Center console display will turn black and reboot.
Press and hold both of the steering wheel buttons above the scroll wheels. IC display will turn black and reboot.
Curious as to how many of the camera on the new Model S are actually being used at the moment so I decided to do some testing today.
I started by first covered in the side fender cameras. This has zero effect on Autopilot and it worked as if they were not covered.
I then covered the side B pillar cameras. Again, zero effect on Autopilot.
Akilae over at Model 3 owners club found this code snipet on the Tesla site:
TEG's post on the Monroney stickers for the 3 prompted me to dig around for them. Unfortunately, I came up short in that search, but I found something just as good, maybe even better.
Long story short, Tesla built a monster with the 3! It can put down 258hp, gets 126mpge (confirmed via the picture in TEG's thread), has *roughly 78kWh of usable...
Graphs, graphs, graphs :)
Two of the PHEVs in the above graph have higher actual acceleration than their theoretical max electric acceleration because they also use a gasoline engine in parallel. I presume the X100D figure to be erroneous. In general the achieved 0-60...
One last post concerning the robot assembly lines I write python libraries for.
This one was extremely exciting to me.
A company purchased 32 robot arms to produce a product. 16 robots on each side. The first robot on the line was to be fed a chassis that was about 6 feet by 9 feet from a mobile robot that took the chassis from a press...
