    simply clicked the link off the site and guess that's been fixed now :) Either way looks like i'm late to the party only posted it because it seemed nobody had

    Supercharger - Raleigh NC

    Moderator note: This post plus a couple downthread were moved from a different thread. Bump, per FB this is being expanded to a 24 stall install.

    It's almost like there is a charger 4 miles down the road from this one. :)

    Did you know the 3 heats the battery (actively) constantly while DC charging at any speed or temp?

    This doesn't seem abnormal. it heats to 140f and then tries to hold it there while charging.

    Warm seats

    If you have a FLIR it will pick up the fact a heater element is on under as it will be brighter red than just where your body has warmed.

    Warm seats

    understood, but somewhere in this thread i hit my seat with a FLIR and you could see there was no heating element on. In the winter, you can see if for some reason the vent under the seat isn't coming out the back correctly but otherwise it's just your body heat being trapped in a warm seat likely.

    Warm seats

    usually it's due to sun hitting the seat and being hot when you sit on it and insulate that heat against your body. Precooling the car for even just a few minutes makes huge difference.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    As I understand it it depends on how the cell is faulty. A hard short and it basically will disconnect itself from the pack via a fusible link.
  10. S

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    But also a much bigger hit if a cell does in fact go bad.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Not exactly. The point of the free market not caring is that the consumer will buy the best product at a given price. They don't care if they are buying at 50k and it cost you 49k or they are buying at 50k and it cost you 20k if it's the best option. The free market will in theory drive prices...

    Could Acceleration Boost Cause Increased Battery Degradation?

    the rating difference has to do with the wheels as there is no efficiency difference in the motors. the only difference the boost would be is that it allows you to draw higher amps from the batttery which in theory is more stress. However, it's not as much draw as the P and any difference that...

    Could Acceleration Boost Cause Increased Battery Degradation?

    of course range loss over time is real but a lot of times it's not actually what the BMS shows. Its just guessing and really just driving it from full to zero is about the only way to get actual numbers.
  14. S

    Could Acceleration Boost Cause Increased Battery Degradation?

    that graph is just a chart of the BMS guess. Let the bms take readings at different points along the charge and I bet you get some of it back.

    Supercharger - Asheville, NC

    It also gets more complex when there are say 8 stalls or 12 because the inverters can pull from each other.

    Supercharger - Asheville, NC

    The graphic you listed is SR vs long range on V3 not V2 vs V3. V2, unless the cable/plug is overheating, will hold ~145kW until the normal V3 taper point at 145k and then they taper as same rate. Either way, V3s are simple and people don't have to think about where they plug in and MOST of the...

    Supercharger - Asheville, NC

    Also really depends. I think there are only 4 v3 there so you would be better off having your own V2 pair than being the 3rd or 4th on the V3 charger assuming all cars are pulling real high current. In your instance with only 2 cars, always better. :)

    that sounds more like what i was thinking.

    that permit says 65k. Are installs really down that cheap now?

    I was unable to find anything on this. Have any of the cyber rodeo "deliveries" been videoed with a charge curve?

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    Also, depending on how you charge it, you likely will get a good portion of that back. I've got a 2018 3 perf and it will bounce between 279 and 288 depending on how it's been charged recently. @jburnham read through this: How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    2nd phone app user: Same Tesla account or separate?

    Sounds like your setup is really she is the main account and she's just given your account access to the car. Everything will be billed to the account the car is tied to.

    Maybe somebody said this already but the lucid video showing cooling plates seems to make a lot of sense from making things simple and consistent. Won't be long till we know hopefully. :)

    Tesla using old time dealer dirty tactics to make money on service

    Feels like OP got big mad over something that wasn't that big a deal and topped it off with a little conspiracy theory. :)

    Tesla supercharger map updated

    understood. I've been able to use chademo downtown boone and charging at grandfather so it hasn't been too bad but I get it's not ideal.

    one small plus is there is a little better coverage for those going to boone from raleigh now with a SC going in winston.

    Model 3 12v battery dead

    based on the tear down it can discharge at -20c and charge at -10c so wouldn't be too hard to discharge it at say... -20c and warm it up to -10c right? Below -20c is a mystery though as you get into a bit of a catch22. You can't draw power to close HV contactors so there is no way to warm it...

    Supercharger - Chapel Hill, NC

    10 stall, i guess that raises the minimum speed you can get up to 105kW. :p

    Did you know the 3 heats the battery (actively) constantly while DC charging at any speed or temp?

    True but at those faster spots, even urban ones, it's not that big a deal. But at the 40kW and under it makes a big difference. Ideally they are smarter about both though.
  37. S

    Did you know the 3 heats the battery (actively) constantly while DC charging at any speed or temp?

    I do wish it was more intelligent about 3rd party DCFC. In theory it should read how fast the charger is and figure out how much it needs to heat the battery to get the fastest charge, not just blindingly heat the battery up to the limit.

    AutoWipers Still dont work well on 2021 Model Y

    wipers have improved a lot since they went with the all vision deal in 2018 but they are still less than ideal, especially at night.

    This will be nice for people coming into UNC but dang that's super close to the Durham one.

    Supercharger - Old Fort, NC

    navigated there from where? If you left asheville and navigated to the SC there certainly wouldn't have been enough time to get the pack hot from a below 30f overnight soak.

    Another Price Increase? 11/11

    Slowly walking the price up to offset the pending tax credit along with more demand than they can satisfy. Makes sense.

    yeah i just see a long bed truck easily backing into it, but maybe i'm wrong. :)

    sure, trade off is they can easily be hit though.

    Wonder why they went with pedestals in the in the middle of the lot vs running further down the back spaces.

    I went by on saturday evening and they were still dark.

    How hot should the batteries get while charging?

    In theory but from what I've read, and i'm just a layman, the benefit of doing so doesn't outweigh the complexity, increased cost, and relatively small amount of energy a capacitor can store.
