    Pyrotechnic fuse

    First you should be familiar with working with high voltages, have the correct protective equipment: HV gloves, insulated tools, etc., before trying to service. Also, tesla changes parts/design so often that you better know exactly which part you need and will fit your car. The pyro fuses are...

    COVID Infects Tesla 12V batteries

    They could easily. The catch is "Safety" they want the HV system off as much as possible. For that to happen you need a 12V battery. They chose a very small 12V battery for how much energy these cars use when off. This means that it discharges often and each discharge shortens the battery...

    Tesla Quietly Raised the Price of the Powerwall

    Hey hey... got my order in 2 weeks ago at the lower price.... :) If you check the prices, the PW2 is still 1/3 the price of their competitors. $400 did not change that. Also, one thing that companies don't do... make grand announcements about price hikes... Get yours now before the next price...

    Power Wall 2 quote

    We'll in side sales stated that of the to main disconnects they could only power 1 (already knew that) and that they would not be moving any critical circuits from the other box. I accepted the quote for 4 PW2 to get this moving forward. I will have an electrician do a load analysis on my two...

    Power Wall 2 quote

    For those of you with PW2. In the quote, did Tesla tell you which circuits would be backed up and which would not. I put the down payment, and had a survey guy out. The house can only be partially backed up, which is just fine. I got a price quote but the sales person won't tell me which...

    Tesla Energy will not Allow me to Pick a Different Salesperson

    I am having a similar issue on a Power wall. Response time is more than a week. I leave a message or email and 10 to 14 days later I get a response. Not sure what to do... I am ready to spend money but can't get simple info like which circuits will be in the gateway.

    Powerwall 2: Installation

    Got the site survey Sunday. Rep says 400A Gateway is "under development". Getting quote on 200A but really want 400A, saves allot of wiring to get all important loads into the same panel. Wiring is across 6 breaker boxes and 2 buildings. Looking at 4 PW2's. With existing solar should give...

    Powerwall 2: Installation

    Any updates on the 400A gateway. This would save alot of wiring between two 200a boxes. Looking to add Powerwall 2, but would like a simple install.
