    Supercharger - Knockrow (Byron Bay) NSW

    Was just at The Farm....the works that Ray has shown appear to be drainage works associated with a road spur extension. They do have a lot of power there. I noted a 750KvA transformer further up from Ray's photo. They also have significant power needs with lots of cool rooms, etc to service...

    Opti-Coat Exterior Protection and Detailing

    I'm happy with Opti-coat. Seems to bring out the pearl essence even more, and as others have commented, nice protection and washing easier.

    Superchargers in Australia

    My Guess: Around Byron, Around Brisbane, Around Sunny Coast - say Gympie by the end of 2016.

    Mobile charging for Australia

    Several folks have ordered J1772 adapters from Tim Washington (Timpoo). They seem to work well. Mine should arrive soon! http://www.evnomics.com.au

    Nice video! For QLD the delivery experience seems vastly different. A truck in a parking lot and a guy is a dirty hi-vis vest! Guessing that'll change over time.

    Phone app

    when end I looked the latest was that the watch is water resistant to light splashes or rain, but that one should avoid activities such as swimming or showering.

    I really MUST get a portable charger

    Especially one that: - covers 3-phase 32A - accommodates a range of power sources - includes easily changeable adaptors - is thoughtful about packaging and storage when not in use. While I'd prefer Tesla produced charging kit, given the potential timing and the fact that they'll likely...

    There are a few charging options on Gold Coast if you ever get caught out down this way.

    VisibleTesla

    I downloaded VT onto a MAC and it seems to be mostly working for me. The only thing I notice is that it's not capturing any Trip Data. It is catering data for graphing, energy usage, speed, etc. Would the missing trip data be related to the new server issue previously noted?

    Australian Model S pics

    Temporary home for a month (2 weeks left). My charger at house supposed to get connected tomorrow. As LGGD noted, he's kindly allowed me to get some charge at his place until my charger gets sorted.

    Features I'd like to see

    I'd like to see options around valet mode. 70 mph / 113kph is too high. Would like option to limit speed to 40kph.

    Tesla Model S Fast Charging From An E-Station Via A CHAdeMO Adaptor. It Works!

    There are a couple of free spots in Brisbane. Charge Point are buying a number of the Tritium Veefil stations, which should all have CHAdeMO. Until the Supercharger network expands, this may be a good back up to have handy.

    I was was told that the Tesla 3-phase chargers will arrive with a type 2 holder, rather than US style.

    Tesla Home Storage Battery

    I saw something posted on the web recently. I think the current cost per kWh is slightly higher than retail electricity prices. There will surely be a point in the (perhaps near) future where this cost becomes equal or less than electricity rates.

    Tesla Home Storage Battery

    Redflow has one available now. Will be interesting to see how the Tesla price point compares. Once they launch in USA, I'd guess they will deliver to AUS "soon" after......

    Superchargers in Australia

    Interesting. I thought Elon mentioned that they were going to put additional investment into Australia, but the supercharger map in the article is the same as originally shown at launch.....with the same timelines. Were his comments hyperbole or might Tesla genuinely accelerate their rate of...

    Mine was built in Dec and delivered in March. At least it's planned to be delivered shortly!

    Registration plate frames

    They provide frames in USA, but I believe that's because there is one standard size number plate there.

    Of course rolling out Superchargers more quickly would somewhat alleviate the immediate much of the current needs for mobile chargers.

    Superchargers in Australia

    Gympie is too far north and road gets flooded (cut off) at times. Eumundi would be about perfect, or south of there. By the way, in order to meet the published commitments, it seems they need to knock out 2-3 new sites per quarter. Q1 is almost done. Will they do it?

    6.1 in Australia

    I confirmed that this next batch of cars due to arrive Aus shortly will have 6.1 installed prior to delivery. Has everyone else gotten their updates by now?

    My charger should be working by then (currently waiting on Energex connection). If you can make it to Hope Island, you are welcome to top up here.

    I would guess the issue is with the ports and the huge backlog of shipments that has built up.

    Yes, after I posted I was told ship was arriving after 27 Feb. I'm still guessing we are on same ship.

    The D thread Australia & New Zealand

    After some research and review, I'm guessing my car, along with several others is currently on the SAFMARINE MAFADI (see below). This would fit with the timing I've been told to expect. Assuming Port arrival 27 Feb, how long would folks expect the car to be unloaded, cleared customs, prepped...

    Interesting. I was told they use Toll, but to know the actual shipping line would seem to narrow down the possibilities significantly!

    Tesla in Australia

    Sounds and looks like a good solution DBorn. Maybe a dumb question, but wouldn't an auto club (e.g, RACQ, RACV) be a simpler solution?

    Home Supercharger v Dual Chargers

    In addition to the costs, I understand that superchargers deliver up to 120Kw per hour....which I believe would require the home to effectively have a 500 amp supply. I know that they require locations for supercharger to have a 500KvA supply available. It's unlikely any homes would have been...

    Australian Number Plates

    Did anyone get a plastic chrome looking Tesla number plate frame for the rear of their car? Apparently standard in USA. There is also a metal chrome frame which can be purchased. I was told Tesla owners get a discount off regular prices. Anyone hearing this in AUS?
