    Retrofit CCS compatibility onto earlier (NA) Model 3 - DIY approach

    Also as mentioned up thread there may be Tesla Body Shops (Tesla.com/FindUs) that are closer to you than a Tesla Service Center. So if you are on FSD and don't wanna wait 2 months for the next FSD update, you can, as mentioned above, request a re-install with a service request via the app and...

    Wow! Did you spend the night at *my* house? Yeah, I got a $350 23 lb. Unagi scooter for getting around when I don't want to or can't take the car. Fits behind the front seats or across the trunk.

    Wow! Charge HQ seems great. Hope they build in support for my energy monitor

    Charge HQ

    I have a Python Script I wrote (TesSense) that coordinates my Tesla's charging with my Sense Energy Monitor. It mostly works, but runs on my laptop, I need a way to offload that to the cloud, so this looks great. I downloaded and set up an account, registered my Tesla and put in a request for...

    CCS Adapter for North America

    Seems like the best trick is the one EVgo did with the Tesla CHAdeMO adapters, they got them with long Tesla cables coming out of them and permanently attached the adapter part to the charge station and then you just plug the CHAdeMO wand into it when you wanna charge a Tesla.

    Tesla's battery-manufacturing 'Megafactory' breaks ground in California

    Don't think so, I was there yesterday and the parking lot was still surrounded in black plastic covered fence. It may be open as there are cars at the front door, but perhaps still finishing construction.

    Retrofit CCS compatibility onto earlier (NA) Model 3 - DIY approach

    Yeah, there is almost finger space under the adapter, on my Model 3, perhaps it's different on other cars I did find a couple of chargers that may have had an issue, but I haven't gotten errors, just worried about the adapter or the port on my car with the weight, but other chargers I have been...

    Seattle Installs EV Chargers on Utility Poles for City Residents Without Home Chargers

    This is so cool, check out the article and the tweet below "Seattle City Light will pay for all costs related to the purchase and installation of the chargers. There is no cost to the resident or property owner to request or install a public curbside Level 2 EV charger. "Drivers will need to...

    Probably just takes practice. Charging at free chargers I am motivated to learn how to do it, since there isn't much to do for an hour or more filling up at a City Hall free charger

    Yay! I got in. I love that I'll be able to check in and see that there are other Superchargers nearby that I haven't touched yet. Why does it show I visited Liberty Lake twice? Calabasas thrice?

    I just hang the one hand from the wheel enough to have the computer know I am there, probably in the 5 o'clock position, or the other hand if my seating position gets old. I let the car do the steering, if it's too much for my hand to follow I just let go during the turn which rarely is at a...

    Wiki Largest gaps between Superchargers on US Interstates

    It sure makes sense to use one of those 12v air heaters you can get for a truck, they can run on diesel or maybe propane. My Sprinter had a hydronic version as Diesel engines don't work so great w/o pre-heating so this was added to the coolant system and circulated warm coolant before you...

    Supercharger - Cottonwood, CA (LIVE 4 May 2022, 12 V3 stalls)

    I don't know that they discover the bad stalls immediately, that's why it's always best practice to toss the cord over the top of the charger if it's not working. I think they just check if no one has used a charger in a time they will mark it as bad and schedule a tech to check it out. Living...

    Next stop, Megacharger adapter (MCS standard), looks to be a smaller plug after all, hopefully we don't all need another updated ECU for compatibility, just a nice global standard plug we can all use when no Semi's or Solid State vehicles are waiting for it. I should think it capable of charging...

    If you are almost anywhere in LA there are free CHAdeMO chargers from LADWP. Also the Zoo, and AAA, and some Park and Rides.

    Just create an FSD driver profile and switch to it when you wanna use FSD. You can turn off FSD in the normal profile and set the speed offset as you like, then when you wanna use it switch to that profile that goes at the speed limit and uses FSD.
