    Do different model years have different top supercharging speeds?

    Surprisingly I couldn't find a straightforward answer to this question online: I have a 2017 Model X 75D - Will my car be able to take advantage of the 250 kW speed or are older models limited to a different number? If it is different, is there a resource that shows the different charging rates...

    Accidental disconnect wouldn't let me finish charging to 90%

    Due to "high usage" Tesla lowered my charge limit from 90% to 80%, so I set it back to 90% and went shopping. When I thought the app showed 90%, I walked back to disconnect; but I misread the 80%. I didn't know because I just unplugged my car upon arrival; when I opened the door, I saw it was...

    If tesla opens supercharging to other vehicles. Can current tesla owners sue tesla

    If tesla opens up the supercharging network to other vehicles this will 1. increase the usage of the sites, which can lead to longer wait times. p.s. wait times in California long will current tesla owners have a right to sue Tesla. (ie class actions) They bought their Tesla s for the car and...

    Tesla Supercharging - SC05 - Transfer supercharging workaround?

    Hey everyone, So I was just trying to buy a Tesla from someone and they let me know that their car is currently optioned with "SC05" option code. For those of you who are not aware, SC05 basically means "Free unlimited supercharging - but only for first owner" aka non-transferable supercharing...

    Salvage cars: Tesla permanently disabling SC from supercharger

    Hi guys, just drawing your attention to this tweet from @wk057 "Tesla really doesn't want people with salvage cars using superchargers. Aside from legal threats in their docs, they're blocking it in more ways now. Seems even offline cars on semi-modern firmware can now have it perm disabled...

    My Model S 75D nerfed to 80kw max is now charging at 117kw on a V2 120kw SC since 2020.48.30 update. HW3 also recently fitted but the unnerfing came only after 2020.48.30

    EVGO vs Supercharger

    Gotta share this experience and I hope it makes you smile. I'm a charge-at-home guy so seldom have to use public charging facilities. Wife and I decided to drive about to the outlet mall about 120 miles away to do some early Christmas shopping. I noted that the mall had an electric charging...

    V3 Supercharging rate with Version H battery, anyone tested?

    Any new owners are able to see how fast their new build Model X can charge on V3 supercharging. It's supposed to be up to 250kw now and curious what the charge experience has been.

    End of June delivery, still no free supercharging

    I see other threads here that this is not a new issue. I suppose I am venting since Tesla isn't doing anything. Unasked, I was offered a year of free supercharging if I took delivery before the end of June. I took delivery June 25th. I still have not be granted the free supercharging. After...

    Record: longest battery pre-conditioning

    I thought it might be a good time to look at the records for batter preconditioning since many of us have cold-soaked batteries due to not driving. Rules: - no squatting i.e. can't just sit at home or at the supercharging before charging to keep preconditioning going, you have to keep moving -...

    USA Today says S & X price cut means no more free Supercharging.

    What is more damaging to the battery?

    I am going on a road trip and am wondering, which one is more damaging to the battery -- slow charging to 100% at home, or slow charging only to 90% but then supercharging extra 10% than otherwise? I understand that both charging to 100% as well as supercharging have negative effects on battery...

    Supercharger Free?

    Probably a stupid question, but I used a Supercharger (Maidstone) today for about 15 mins and it said my charge was about a tenner. However, I just drove off afterwards and have had no prompt to pay it other than the figure being shown on my last charge. How do they draw this money down - I’ve...

    EV and ICE enthusiasts: Can't we all just get along??

    One thing that has amazed me in the year I've owned my Model 3 is the amount of H8 and venom spewed at EVs in general and Teslas in particular. From ICE-ing Superchargers, to "rolling coal", to road-rage incidents to internet commentary, I just don't get from where all the ill-will stems...

    Supercharging the Mobile Megapack at Madonna Inn

    Tesla brought the mobile Megapack with Superchargers back to the Madonna Inn Supercharger to help out with Christmas travel. It now has an upgrade where it can recharge from the onsite Superchargers. Unfortunately it was not providing power from it's 8 on board chargers while blocking 2 stalls...

    Supercharging sessions (charges) not showing up on account / car

    I got my car in May 2018 and had a credit card setup on my account. From then until September 2019 any time I supercharged, it'd appear on the display and on the account and would charge me. In October, the card that was on my account was replaced with a new one (someone had charged some stuff...

    West Virginia to Florida - A Thanksgiving Road Trip

    Did you know the 3 heats the battery (actively) constantly while DC charging at any speed or temp?

    I bet you didn't. I'll bet you're thinking right now, "no, that's nonsense, that can't be right, let me get in this thread and tell this idiot off". Or maybe "what makes you think that, where'd you get that data?". Perhaps "no, that's just because DC charging causes the battery to heat up"...

    REMINDER: Leave a gap on V2 superchargers

    Amazing how many don’t know about this... Reminding people/making people aware every other week, when there are plenty other unused stalls. Parking next to another Tesla whilst charging on V2 will share the speed. You might be happy with that, but the car next door may not and might be in a...

    HELP! Model S Won’t Charge at Supercharger

    Hey guys, I’m in sort of a pickle here. Was driving back to Birmingham from Atlanta after a football game and planned on using the supercharger in Oxford, AL instead of using one in ATL for a few minutes after the game. Anyway, I pulled in with 10 miles range. When I plug in, it says “starting...

    Different charges during Supercharging.

    Hello All, I did a Myrtle beach trip over last week and for first time charged my Model-3 at Superchargers. The first 20 mins the Supercharger does around 450 mph - 525 mph, afterwards it starts dropping the mph rate of charging. My question is, after first 20 mins of charging the cost/min is...

    Bike Hitch Rack and Superchargers

    Planning to purchase a Thule Apex XT 5 to carry our 5 bikes. We might take some trips that require supercharging in Southern California. Are there any challenges with using this bike rack and fitting the Model X to supercharge? For 5 bikes, are there any other recommended bike hitch racks?

    V3 Supercharging tested by Motor Trend...

    Pretty in-depth, too, so props to MT for sticking with it to try to get accurate results. One key thing is mentioned in the text, but not given enough emphasis, IMO: Supercharing to 100% is rare, so the x% to 80-90% times are the useful figures. Tesla V3 Supercharger: We Put the Latest Fast...

    Unlimited supercharging disappearing from used/cpo cars

    I've seen tesla-info report that the unlimited supercharging codes have been changed to pay per use on pretty much all used/cpo inventory. So even cars built in say 2015 when all cars had unlimited supercharging are having it taken away when they're being resold by Tesla. This is not the same as...

    Forum For Supercharging?

    I don't see a forum that's appropriate to post topics about supercharging, which is a topic common to all tesla vehicles, not just one vehicle type. Maybe we could have a forum for questions that are common to all vehicles (not just supercharging?) Then again, there's a forum for autopilot...

    Who is supposed to get Free Supercharging?

    I'm confused by the changes in prices and promos going on... I already own a Model S and ordered a Raven'X earlier this May, and still don't have a VIN (Estimate delivery was May when I ordered - so that did not happen). Since I ordered, the price dropped by $2K. Also, it seems like there is...

    Limited Expectations of Realistic Supercharger Network Expansion

    Given that the reservation list in the US is pretty much exhausted and sales of high end model 3s are starting to lag to the point that Tesla is laying off workers to cut costs so they can produce the model 3 base version profitably, it seems to me 2019 is going to be yet another year where...
