    Supercharger - Manhattan - Vesey St, NY

    I decided to stop by this location yesterday as I needed a charge and didn't have time to drive out to Williamsburg last night anbd I had another disappointing charging experience. these chargers seem to max out at 56 KW rather than 72 or 74 KW that I generally get from other "urban" SCers...

    Maximum battery charge level reduced - warranty about to expire

    I too suspect the OP will get a "new" 90 KW battery. I expect same will be software limited to what a new 85 KW battery would max out at. on the off chance that they do have an older 85KW battery lying around (I am told these are all but exhausted as far as 1st party repalcement packs from...

    Maximum battery charge level reduced - warranty about to expire

    While I was figuring out what to do with my battery repalcement (3rd party refurb vs "new" 90 KW pack with a 48 month, 48,000 mile waranty from Tesla) and I was going back and forth with the Tesla reps, they told me I could "drop the car off at any time." I had an appintment for Nov 8th and was...

    Maximum battery charge level reduced - warranty about to expire

    If I were you I would do whatever you needed to do to make sure Tesla sees your car prior to the expiration of the warranty. If you alert them to the issue prior to the expiration, their policy is to honor the warranty as the issue arose prior to the expiration of the warranty. However, As...

    Are we stuck with low supercharge 2015 s 85d?

    I stopped by the SC in N Bergen next to the Starbucks last Sunday 10.15.23 to test my SCing speeds and I am happy to report the results were better than anticipated. Although TeslaFi reports a max of 94 KW, I definately saw the charging ramp up to 106 KW and stay above 100 KW for several...

    Interview with Tesla Supercharger Team member

    I listed to the podcast starting from 7:22 and found it most informative as a Manhattan resident without a dedicated parking space to park or charge. I went back and listed to the conversation in it's entirety. Mr. Xiao made a few eronious assumptions regarding parking and charging in the 5...

    Are we stuck with low supercharge 2015 s 85d?

    Recently I have been using 2 Urban SCer locations to charge my 2015 85D that has been out of (extended) warranty since the end of June 2023 and have only gotten max 52 KW instead of the 72 KW (and occasionally 74 KW I used to get at the same locations). this is typically with a low SOC when...

    Now that the charging standard war has ended, can we focus on...

    exactly this happened to me over memorial day weekend. I was 3rd in line to charge when I arrived at a full SCer in Roslyn Heights, NY - but I ran into the Starbucks to use "the facilities" on an emergancy basis. when I returned, a 4th car had pulled in and it looked like there was a free...

    I stopped By Roslyn Heights SCer yesterday with the Model 3 LR loaner on my way back from eastern long island. I had 60 miles of Rated Range when I left Sayville Ferry parking lot and had originally intened on going to Islandia or Plainview for a few minutes just to have enough cussion to make...

    Supercharger - Roslyn Heights, NY - Willis Ave.

    What a difference 19 months make... Tesla's best kept secret is totally out. I have said before that this is the most valuable SCer on Long Island and my valuation proved true. this is probably the busiest supercharger on the eastern seaboard. I stopped by on Saturday, May 27th.. mid-day on...

    Supercharger - Manorville NY

    I stopped by on Monday 4/25/22 not b/c I needed a charge, but b/c I wanted to replenish what I had lost driving by the eastern end of long island and I wanted to try out this location. also, my weekly destination charging garage in the city has been giving me a hard time the past few weeks I...

    Did Elon Musk flash the white supremacy symbol on SNL on Saturday?

    I've actually been thinking a lot about this thread since Monday. I'm not surprised to see it resurrected. and yes, I am the OP of this thread and I still think Musk was flashing the White Power slogan on SNL as seen in the pics above, I have about 14 month left on extended warranty of my...

    I saw my 1st Rivian R1T in NYC yesterday..

    Speaking of Marques, it may have been him in the driver's seat when I had my sighting bc he did have his "test drive" on the day that I saw the R1T. of course most of the footage from the YouTube video is in NJ, and as I said above, I didn't get a good look at the interior. fun times.. :cool:

    I spotted the Rivian R1T in NYC yesterday as I was driving around doing some errands. it was the "Super Mario" blue color. :cool: looked nice. unfortunately the ride height is so high I couldn't get a good look at the interior. I am very interested in the Rivian R1S but I worry that I wont...

    Supercharger - Roslyn Heights, NY - Willis Ave.

    This is a much needed SCer location. Ever since Syosset was “decommissioned” there has been no easy way to leave the city heading East with only 30-40 miles of rated range. (I find myself in this predicament all the time, unfortunately.) but now, Even with 30 miles RR, we can head out from...

    Tesla Supercharger network

    This has been a pet-peeve of mine since tesla started charging $$ for supercharger use. My Model S is from 2015 and has free supercharging so I am completely in the dark about what Tesla is charging those without free supercharging. even more annoying, this forum -- usually so informative on...

    Right-to-Charge laws in New York?

    You should reach out to the lawyer and ask him why the charger was approved by the other HOA but not this one. if he won't talk to you, hire a lawyer to talk to him.

    MASTER THREAD: FSD Subscription Available 16 Jul 2021

    I would do $199 -- its reasonable and you don't have to worry about Tesla taking their sweet time refunding yr $10,000. as an aside, if the price were $5,000 i'd say try it for a month and if you like it, buy it outright. its only 25 months of payments. is suspect u would keep yr car at least...

    Did Elon Musk flash the white supremacy symbol on SNL on Saturday?

    I’m saying that Eddie Murphy flashing the OK sign 30 years ago is irrelevant to this discussion.

    Did Elon Musk flash the white supremacy symbol on SNL on Saturday?

    The OK sign has been appropriated by actual white supremacists. This is known and not some liberal snowflake conspiracy. The same is true of "red pilling" so you are saying that because Eddie Murphy spent the 1st million dollars he made in 1987 on bitcoin the OK sign could never be a covert...

    Did Elon Musk flash the white supremacy symbol on SNL on Saturday?

    This. coupled with all the “red pill” and “the ‘rona is a hoax” st*ff Musk has been spewing on Twitter… 😬 I’m sad to say but I think THIS is why he wanted to go on SNL…

    Did Elon Musk flash the white supremacy symbol on SNL on Saturday?

    I watched several of the SNL skits on YouTube on Sunday morning and was so pleased when Musk mentioned Asperger's and thought the episode was chugging along nicely... at one point Musk even offered a semi-apology for being a "mask-hole." and then, during the Weekend Update skit he repeatedly...

    1000 mile road trip with SCer throttled 2015 Model S 85D

    I'd like some feedback from those of us with older Model S's that have now been SCer throttled. my car does often hit 115 kW (or better) SCer rate, but that only lasts a few seconds. Even with a low SOC my car is charging below 90 KW for much for much of the charging session and i'm wondering...

    Will US Tesla work in Europe?

    I misspoke.. both my homes in Greece are wired for 3-phase power. I had originally thought that my summer home (constructed in the early-90s) was single-only, but it turns out that it too is wired for 400 V 3-phase at 16 amps.

    Will US Tesla work in Europe?

    Yes but what about North American Spec Teslas in Europe. it sounds like they would be limited to 230 V x 16 amps b/c if it is pulling 1 phase of 480 V at 16 Amps, it would be limited to 16 amps.. which is super slow and very prohibitive. like I said in my post above, most homes are wired for...

    Supercharger - New York JFK, NY

    That's very cool! how much does it cost? Does JFK SCer get backed up often? I have only used 2-3 times myself b/c it is a pain to get to from the city, but I grew up in the shadow of the Verrazano Bridge and the Belt, so I can see how it might be useful for some.

    What to do about NYC public garage gougers?

    yes, they are still decent and they charge my Tesla whenever I need them to without much hassle. they definitely have some space so I would look into booking with them directly. if not, try booking them thru DropCar as I did. i'm very pleased. let me know if you have any other questions.. feel...

    A Better Routeplanner

    Yes.. my car is a 2015 Model S85D.. I rarely need to supercharge these days, mostly b/c of Covid-19, but I was surprised to find my battery pulling less than 72 kW at a SCer capable of at least 130 kW with only 41 rated miles when I plugged in. all i'm saying is that if I was expecting to get...

    A Better Routeplanner

    Does anyone know if ABRP takes into account SCer throttled "vintage" Model S 85Ds? I stopped by SC yesterday with 41 miles of RR and only got a max of 67 kW. I only needed like 5-6 miles of margin to get home. and I had to pee, so it wasn't all for nothing, but I worry about my next 2000 mile...

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    I think this is normal for all cars.. even those that are not throttled. charging above 90% takes much longer than charging from 20%-50% and charging above 95% takes FOREVER.

    Will US Tesla work in Europe?

    What kind of charging speeds are you getting on a NA-spec Tesla from a type 2 charger? is it limited to 3.68 kW (230 V x 16 Amps) because its single phase? or can you get 7.36 kW (230 V x 32 Amps) out of these chargers. this is something i'm always confused about. in Greece most modern homes...

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    it does not sound to me like you are throttled. But i'm not an expert on throttle-gate so.. My 2015 85D has just over 40,000 miles on the odometer and I have had several SCer sessions that describe something similar to this.. although my car will hit 128 kW IIRC (I have not supercharged in...
