    poll: CCS charging speed versus state of charge

    What charging speeds are you getting at non-Tesla CCS fast chargers? At PetroCan in Vancouver BC, I get 56 kW at 55%, SoC, cost C$ 1.50/2.8 kWh, = USD 0.40/kWh, max advertised rate 200 kW. At Chevron in Victoria BC, I got 128 kW at 46% SoC, cost free!, max advertised rate 150 kW. At BCHydro...

    CCS upgrade & charge port change

    My charge port has started malfunctioning (no lights, slow to allow charger connector to engage, etc). Does the CCS upgrade include changing out the charge connector?
  3. TesslaBull

    Opinion: Tesla should partner with another OEM for NACS or be forced into CCS someday.

    CCS has been adopted, however shortsightedly, as the charging standard for North America. As all other manufacturers move forward with CCS ports in random, non-optimal locations over the years, Tesla may some day be forced to have CCS charging ports in their vehicles just as has happened in...

    Do I need a charging cable?

    I just replaced my previous EV with a Tesla 2023 Model S. I pick up the Model S next Saturday (Feb 25, 2023). For my previous vehicle I had a NEMA 14-50 outlet in the garage with a CCS cable going to the EV. Will the Tesla come with a charger and cable that I can plug into the NEMA 14-50 and...

    C-tech(?) CCS adapter for unenabled Teslas?

    DaxM, in his video here, , says there is an adapter that works with CCS-unenabled cars. He says something like "C-tech". Is there such an adapter? Am I getting the brand spelling correct? Where can I buy such an adapter?

    How to free a CCS adapter stuck on a CCS cable….

    Hello everyone! Hoping the forum has suggestions on how to free a CCS adapter that is stuck to a CCS cable.

    Tesla vs A2Z CCS adaptes

    Any pros or cons of buying the Tesla vs A2Z CCS adapter? I have 2022 MY that has CCS enabled. I ordered the Tesla adapter but looking for some guidance to see if I should return it and buy A2Z. My prime concern with 3rd party adapter is any chance that will Tesla lock it out through firmware...

    MY Adaptors needed

    For a 2022-2023 MY. If I were to charge at say an Ampol DC fast charger with a CCS/SAE head. Do I need an adaptor that converts the CCS/SAE head? Also, what type of socket does a 2022-2023 MY have anyways? Thanks!

    Interesting observation about CCS Setec adapter and losing range

    I have both a Tesla Chad adapter and a SETEC CCS Adapter for my Model 3. Due some circumstances, I have been charging almost exclusively using the SETEC for the past 45 days.. over 600 Kw worth :). Has not missed a beat. Here is the interesting thing. I use teslaapp to monitor different...

    My experience with UK charging networks

    So, I just got back from a trip in England where I rented a Model 3 for 2 weeks. I now fully understand why the (US) Tesla Supercharger network is winning. A lot of my experience was with the Pod Point system, but I expect most of the problems I had were not specific to that brand. 1. The CCS...

    WCEH to offer Tesla charging?

    It seems that the WCEH (West Coast Electric Highway) group is about to make significant upgrades to their charging network. The WCEH was originally CHAdeMO (and L2) only. These upgrades are intended to add CCS and other compatibility to all their original sites. From: West Coast Electric...

    Booked in for CCS Upgrade

    Folks, I have booked in for CCS upgrade for my 2018 Model S. My main purpose of upgrade is to be able to charge on non-tesla charging network when supercharger is not nearby/enroute. Is there any catch here, before I part from my money? How much does it cost in the UK? Do I get any other benefit...

    Only CCS compatible?

    How do I know if my Model X will work at superchargers marked as Only CCS compatible? Is there somewhere in the software to indicate compatibility? I have a late 2016 model.

    Upgrade to CCS?

    Hi, I’ve got a 2017 S P100D with the standard type 2 socket. Recently 2 superchargers on my usual route to Melbourne have opened up (Colac and Geelong), but both are only CCS compatible, which I find quite annoying. so my understanding is that I could ask for my socket to be upgraded to CCS -...

    Help! CCS mod on S. Firmware download

    This afternoon, I had my 2016 S mod for the CCS adaptor. To save time, I said I would download the firmware at home. I am home and thought it would be on my phone like a software update, so just press go and all is well. However, there is nothing. Any ideas? Do I need to do something else...

    How does CCS generate high voltages up to 920V?

    Hello, I am studying the design of DC fast chargers. I learned some information about their varieties and the approximate principle of operation (Vienna Rect. - LLC DC/DC - Output). Usually, after Vienna Rectifier, you can get a maximum voltage of about 840VDC, and then lower it to the...

The adapter that came with my M3 works withChargePoint, and some others, but not with some. From what I have read, CCS is the fastest growing port, and used by Blink to mention one...

    Idea for Tesla in USA: SuperCharger to CCS adapter

    CCS Adapter for North America

    Given that the Model 3 now supports the CHAdeMO adapter, is the idea of a CCS adapter dead? I would love to get a CCS adapter that was smaller, cheaper and supports 150kW for my 3, spending $600CAD on a CHAdeMO that is huge and only supports 50kW seems to be a waste. Are Tesla working on a CCS...
