    Can the Tesla wall charger charge other EVs?

    (looking it up…)…2017 NEC 625.54 says GFCI is mandatory only for runs of 150V or less. Revisions to this 625.54 in 2020 did not alter that 150V limit.

    Can the Tesla wall charger charge other EVs?

    (without looking it up…)…Surely not a GFCI on a 14-50??!! After all, typical usage is as a welder outlet. 🤔

    Can the Tesla wall charger charge other EVs?

    Tenants in one of our properties have told me they are considering purchasing an EV; it might be a Tesla but perhaps not. That got me to thinking if, instead of installing one of Tesla‘s Wall Chargers, it might be significantly more appropriate for the combination of both these tenants and...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Sitting in a waiting room this morning means I’m not teaching this morning means I have time and ability to join in this morning’s discussion. So using @unk45 ’s post as reference, I see a long-tailed sweet spot in the mini-Tesla conundrum. To the extent that Tesla has {battery + overall...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Continuing to violate my self-administered sabbatical, here is some information about the T-MexPark (great name!) that is sited directly adjacent (3km/2mi) to Mexico City's new airport, itself just 30km/20mi from the megalopolis's center, and which is the location presumed to be of interest to...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    No - I'm specifically wondering that which I wrote, which is what, in the context of that bureaucratese, the word "should" means. If the word used was "shall", it is extremely obvious that it is mandatory. "May" also is not ambiguous. But - literally - I do not know what "should" is implying...

    You wrote "So, CCS required". But what is the force of law, or of regulatory action, or enablement/refusal, of the word "should" in this context?

    Front door openers problem

    Thank you for that response. It's good to hear that it might be possible to replace solely the driver's door release, and I appreciate your reasoning for Tesla to avoid out-of-warranty gratis replacements.

    Front door openers problem

    The problem that showed up on our 2017 Model X has, via a search through this "Interior/Exterior" forum, occurred with a handful of others. A few months ago, the driver's door stopped opening properly. When attempting to open either via key fob, exterior latch or interior screen, it would first...

    @MC3OZ: When did Tesla bring glass production in house? Our newest Tesla is a 2017 - still makes use of the AGP Glass company provided in the first Teslas. I'll go farther out and state that I shall be very surprised if Tesla has found it appropriate to float their own glass. As with metal...

    I wouldn't want to think like Mr Musk, partly because if I did, then I would consider myself inappropriate as a candidate for the BoD. More strongly: that would be the single most inappropriate attribute a Board member should possess. Now, before the catcalls and tomato-throwing begin, recall...

    My reaction when seeing the prices shown during launch was: "Ugh. This sounds as though Tesla did not learn much from their "Cheaper than traditional solar panels...or roofs!..." with the launch of their solar tiles." How did that one perform on your test?

    The Model X is not an off-road vehicle; its suspension is not anywhere near so beefy as the CT's had better be; its air suspension nowhere close to having the large range the CT's had better have (220mm is a good ballpark figure); and with hundreds of thousands of Model Xs behind them, Tesla had...

    Bulleproof glass, a very large amount of a specialized stainless steel, a supremely complex suspension system - these are a few differentiating factors that are costly. As you mentioned production costs rather than capital costs - even amortized to a per-vehicle basis - I'll grant you that we...

    You’re welcome.😇 PS: WYSIWYG (or ..P) , SNAFU, FUD are acronyms: each can be pronounced as a standalone word. GM (in any of its meanings), AAA, MSRP, WTF, PS itself - those are abbreviations: one has to say each letter.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Irrespective of MSRP shenanigans or lack thereof, and of FomoCo's very strong wordings to dealers who abuse the "S" in MSRP, I am in absolute belief that Ford's dealers will easily find ways to snag virtually all the benefits of the IRA's largesse. With Tesla, WYSIWYP rules. With all others -...

    Alex: I regard that post as highly unethical. It puts me as Moderator, AND anyone considering purchasing or selling TSLA, in difficult positions. I have had to sit on my hands any number of times over the years; it is not easy but it is the correct thing to do. Thank you for your understanding.

    It is become rather difficult to post anything in this thread that is insightful and original, as the past 72 +/- hrs of posts demonstrate. But here is something that is, at least, original. I too have been tearing my hair out trying to decipher what “Burnt Hair” might mean. What about...

    You've been around long enough to know one of my lesser mantras: Words Count. Well, in that vein, grammar counts, too. And personal pronouns are one thing; nouns are another. So you're muddling things terribly if you believe what you write: that you don't understand why pronouns are no...
