    2nd Gen mobile connector "ground loss"

    I had a similar issue driving me nuts. I was checking everything associated with the HPWC. Turned out it was a dirty port on the charging cable where i plugged into the car. Not enough to keep it from charging all the time, but enough to sporadically give me 'short" errors. I figured i'd...

    Repair a broken HPWC?

    From what i was told, yes. I only replaced the coil. The posts and the actual contacts were cleaned and reused from the old assembly which includes the spring. I would think the spring recoil is what would need to be adjusted in the unit to accommodate vertical installation being that the...

    Repair a broken HPWC?

    Yes, generation 1. Sold new in March 2015. There is a newer version, which arrives on Friday that will be installed next to our first generation. They will ideally share the same 100 amp breaker and I'm hoping that the different generation chargers will still communicate with each other...

    Repair a broken HPWC?

    Just updated the post, hopefully you can see the original images now. Tried the media share from TMC's internal media library- may have messed it up.

    Repair a broken HPWC?

    The distributor i went through was Bohlinger out of Conshohocken PA. Nice guys who have been in the EV game a while- But the Curtis Instruments people may have a distributor closer to your location- Part info - Curtis Albright Contactor 'SW82-312 240V CO 37/14' The total repair with all of...

    Repair a broken HPWC?

    My HPWC stopped working. Cleaned it and tested the fuse continuity, everything was fine. The contactor was my next guess. After tracking down the part it appears they are supposed to be installed with the contact studs facing upwards- but these were facing down. Not sure if this facilitated...

    Supercharger - Harrisburg, PA

    HAH- i was there yesterday and he was inside on the upper left corner of the red plastic on the 4th charger in. Darker shell though- very possibly a different snail. If he's spotted again- i feel he will need a name......

    Fatal autopilot crash, NHTSA investigating...

    It appears that both parties would have some sort of fault in this situation. I spend an enormous amount of time in the Vehicle and the Autopilot is activated around 90% of the time. I'm very familiar with what triggers it's braking- I'm wondering if there were other vehicles in the left lanes...

    400 mile range battery hint on Tesla's main page

    If you look at the dashboard picture on the Model S main page, it shows a battery indicator on the bottom left of the screen indicating 242 miles remaining on charge. This indicator is not more than 60% full which would equate to a total range of over 400 miles when charged to 100%. Link for...

    Supercharger - Harrisburg, PA

    Here now.... Everything looks good. Charging at 385 mi/hr. Good spot to stretch by taking a walk for a minute.

    Supercharger - Harrisburg, PA

    The 'string chargers' would be ideal for shopping and such, as well as being able to install large amounts for a fraction of the cost of a supercharger. I wonder if there will be a software update to allow others to unplug your car once your charging goal has been reached. By allowing this along...

    Supercharger - Harrisburg, PA

    I use the blink chademo chargers very often. They are prone to go out of service for days at a time though, so I can't really rely on them without checking the app before I leave. 140 mph charging rate isn't bad, but obviously 300+ is better! There is a new one at the king of Prussia rest...

    Supercharger - Harrisburg, PA

    Google Maps Already on Google Maps. Neat! I drive round trip between Mechancisburg and Philadelphia EVERY DAY. This is perfect for on my way home to add a few extra miles for little league games and running errands.. Waiting an extra 45 minutes for the HPWC at home is sometimes problematic...

    Supercharger - Allentown, PA

    Was there a few hours ago. Two bucket trucks idling with a few guys hooking up final connections. There appeared to be enough people on site to finish it today.
