    Firmware 6.2 - Navigation for non tech package?

    my guess is that it will work the same way as it display distance to the nearest supercharger in the location menu (simple GPS straight line calculation) and when the distance to the nearest charger become within f.x. 10% of the current max range it will warn you as this is to be updated every...

    Personal observations from a Roadster owner who got to test drive several S Models.

    CHAdeMO Adapter

    the problem is probably more related to public charging where you often have to park nose in or parallel I know of several locations where it is impossible for me to charge, simply because i can't legally park in a way where the cable will reach

    Upcoming FW upgrade to "positively impact" essentially the entire fleet

    also it would be nice it they added support for vector based maps (non earth view), so zooming do not require loading of new map titles and if they added support for 3party charging networks and POI Complex icons - Google Maps JavaScript API v3 Google Developers

    Can a Model-S Charge from a backup battery directly?

    as I see it you have 2 options (easy or difficult) the easy solution is just to use X deep cycle 12v batteries and a 120v or230v DC-AC inverter and charger, and then just connect the UMC and set the max amp to what the inverter support this can be done with off the shelf products today, but the...

    Kia Installs First 100 kW CHAdeMO DC Fast Chargers In Europe great, now we just need someone to try this with the Model S and the ChaDeMo adaptor and see how fast we can charge (when available) as I recall Tesla do not charge at 500v but at 400v resulting in 80Kw (400v*200a = 80Kw) well it is...

    Question about charger

    Hi The key word you are looking at is "J1772" that mean that you just need to use you adapter that came with the car Other Important information is the 200v 30a you just multiply them 200*30=6000 with result in 6Kw Meaning that a single charger will be fine as it is less than 10Kw
