    iPhone 12 Pro Max and charging

    Did you ever consider making the spacer such that it actually drops the phone DOWN by maybe half an inch or so? Seems like it would be easy enough to design, but I also don’t know anything about 3D printing Also, do you mind sharing your version and how I would acquire it? I also have a iPhone...

    Model 3 Battery charging every hour for about 2 mins at a time - has anyone figured out why?

    I have this exact same thing happening to me. I was under the assumption that when the car is plugged in, all electrons that the car would require come from the wall unit and not the battery itself. This perhaps does not seem to be the case anymore?

    USB Too Slow -TeslaCam

    I’ve searched and read all the posts regarding the USB drives and the “too slow” message. I read the entire sticky thread. I can’t seem to find any consensus so I thought I’d ask here. I bought a brand new, non-counterfeit, Samsung Fit Plus 128GB from Amazon. It was working perfectly for a week...

    How are the 3D MAXpider floor mats holding up?

    I was like you guys and hated the absolutely stupid 3D maxpider logo. I did hours of research to see if I could buy anything else without the obnoxious logo. Ultimately I went with the maxpider. Now that’s it’s installed I rarely notice or care about the logo. I just enjoy the car. that being...

    Why can the Tesla app open the frunk but not the trunk?

    Why is the shortcut on the Tesla app to open the frunk? Isn’t the trunk much more utilized? Ant way to change the shortcut?

    Things to do when getting a new Model 3

    #1 thing to do... ENJOY YOUR CAR. Being a part of these forums is invaluable and it offers a wealth of knowledge. However, it’s draining. Every little issue, every little complaint. Every microscopic rock chip. Don’t get bogged down. You don’t need to buy any of these things on these lists...

    V10 update: 2019.32.12.2 - Release notes same as previous V10 versions

    Thank you. I don’t have a notification for 12.2 tho, only 12.1. Is that what you had as well?

    Would You Buy a Model 3 Again Today?

    Yes. And I got a performance because I knew I’d regret not getting it. Even tho I never floor it. Maybe not never - rarely floor it.

    Only 198 volts on nema 14-50. Yikes!?

    Sorry I am new to all of this terminology. First of all, thank you to each one of you who helped give responses. We have a Level 2 (like ChargePoint but I forget the name). There has never been 2 cars charging at the same time. Yes it goes to 16/16 not 16/32. And about once an hour it drops...

    v10 TeslaCam- supposed to overwrite, do I even need > 16GB USB now?

    Have a USB that I used for 2-3 weeks without a single hiccup. Now I get the error message just like you. Started after the v10 update. Does sentry still record with this message? Haven’t had a chance to check.

    How are you hanging your UMC charging cable? Post it!

    Not sure if there is truth to this but I read it’s a bad idea to wind/loop up electrical cords as if generates heat? Anyone heard this before?
  22. E

    Only 198 volts on nema 14-50. Yikes!?

    Thank you for your response. I checked - there is no restriction from the management side in terms of electricity use or other limits as such. I am mostly concerned that the charge keeps getting interrupted to 0 every hour or so. There has to be some sort of issue that is causing some sort of...

    Hub for 2 controllers? And leave the TeslaCam USB alone?

    Game Controller - Cuphead

    Dumb question but how do you use 2 controllers for 2 people with the TeslaCam USB? Do you use a splitter for the controllers or something?

    So you were inside your Tesla when this happened? First ding will hurt the most. Really sorry this happened to you.

    Only 198 volts on nema 14-50. Yikes!?

    Oh and to clarify, only 1 car is charging at a time, FYI. There are 2 stalls but no one in the building has an electric car, so there is no concurrent dual charging, for the time being.

    Only 198 volts on nema 14-50. Yikes!?

    It’s a residential charging station. I wouldn’t even know how to contact an electrician nor is it my responsibility to do so - but if anyone thinks this is dangerous I will for sure contact the manager. If the only issue is a “slower” charge - then I don’t mind as I plug it in overnight and...

    Only 198 volts on nema 14-50. Yikes!?

    The run is about 300-400 feet (I live in a condo and am estimating, I looked again today). I turned on Tesla app notifications and about every hour I am getting a “charge interrupted” notification. When I check the app it says 0/16 amps and after a few minutes ramps back up to 16 amps. Really...

    Only 198 volts on nema 14-50. Yikes!?

    So update on my situation: When I plug in my car, it starts at 6/6 amps out of a total of 32 amps. Around 203-204V. After a few minutes it gets going and goes to its max of 32/32 amps. The volts drop to around 192-193. After a few minutes it drops to 16/16 amps at 198 volts where it remains...

    Prefer Wired Phone Charging vs Wireless

    Thinking more like charging with a long cord not the one that you can add to the bottom of the phone mat.

    Prefer Wired Phone Charging vs Wireless

    Money isn’t really an issue here, we’re talking about a few dollars difference per year. My question was more about the pros and cons of both options. Electric cars are all about efficiency... and wireless is the least efficient way to charge, and likely least practical as well. Can’t charge...

    M3P- . What is it, how to order it, etc.

    Still no v10 update for my Sept 2019 M3P- Anyone else not get it? Thinking of setting up a service appointment as it seems most have received the update.

    Prefer Wired Phone Charging vs Wireless

    My sentiments exactly. Also doesn’t really make sense if my wife wants to charge and at the same time want to look up restaurants or something like that. There isn’t much flexibility there.

    Prefer Wired Phone Charging vs Wireless

    Anyone prefer the wired option of phone charging as opposed to wireless? I’ve ordered a wireless phone charger but am having second thoughts. I prefer to keep the electrons for my car instead of my cell phone - and when the cell phone needs a charge, it should be done in the most efficient way...

    Only 198 volts on nema 14-50. Yikes!?

    I am in a condo building and the wires from the main electrical box run about 300 feet to get to the commercial EV charging stations So is volts like resistance? Any resources I can read so I can understand amps, volts, watts, and all of the electrical stuff? Mainly for my own education. Thanks.
  38. E

    Only 198 volts on nema 14-50. Yikes!?

    Pardon my ignorance. I also have a level 2 like OP. The volt is usually 198-199 when charging. The amps start at 6/6 and then after 2-3 minutes goes to 32/32 A. I didn’t realize the volt below 200 is an issue? Can someone please help and educate? Thank you in advance.

    Need Help Picking Center Console Wrap

    I did a search but there’s not much on this. It seems all the brands for center console wrapping are using 3M 1080 so the materials seem the same. So what brand do you recommend for the best OEM looking install? Kenriko looks good but seems like you need to use a razor blade to do some cutting...

    I would not want to get an early build Model Y. They are still working on cleaning up the manufacturing for the Model 3. look at the rust issue. It’s been 3 years and the build quality is, to be quite frank, just not there yet. The counter argument is the “but the Model Y will share so many...

    High pitched noise from drive unit

    Exactly this. What’s wrong with the sound? It sounds futuristic and like a spaceship taking off. Better than hearing grumbles from a ICE and smelling exhaust. Seems like a completely normal sound?

    Buy now or 2020

    Buy it now. Think of the opportunity cost. Not just monetary.

    Model 3 showroom mode? Anyone?

    Surprised the mod merged my post as it isn’t the same question as what OP asked. Mine is to see if showroom mode will give you an automatic instant update to v10. I am about 99% sure it would.

    Model 3 showroom mode? Anyone?

    When I picked up my Model 3, the delivery advisor showed me how to enable showroom mode for the car. I have since forgotten how to do this. Does anyone remember? Anyway, it got me thinking... All showroom cars have v10 installed. There is nothing special hardware wise about the showroom cars...
