    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. Bought used; no idea whether it needs/has had the adapter upgrade. Got a long trip coming up next week and never used a...

    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 -...

    Chademo or CCS to borrow or rent (Model 3 LR)

    Hi all, first time member posting. Looking to borrow or rent a Chademo or CCS adapter for a trip to East Coast (with limited SC coverage). Happy to pick up from anyone in Laval or Montreal that would have one available. Thanks! Lug01

    Buy Chademo or wait for CCS Adapter?

    Hey guys, I just picked up my 2021 M3SR+ last week and debating whether I should buy the Chademo adapter or wait for the CCS Combo adapter to release in North America. I live in Surrey, British Columbia and the nearest Supercharger to me is a 15 minute drive whereas the closest BC hydro...

    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...

    Upgrading 2015 model S to CCS charging. worth it?

    I just got an email from Tesla. I'm in the UK, with an 85D model S from 2015, MCU1, AP1. Very happy with it. I have the old fashioned charge port (is it type 2?) and a home charger that has an attached cable that I plug into my S to charge overnight. I just got offered a CCS upgrade for £450...

    CCS laadpoort upgrade

    Ik kreeg een mail van Tesla met het aanbod om naar een CCS laadpoort up-te-graden. Ik heb een S 90D van 2015 en ben gelimiteerd tijdens het laden tot een max van 95 kW (zie Tesla explains why it limits Supercharging speed after high numbers of DC charges - Electrek) Volgens mijn logica heeft...

    Overview table with SC times for different versions & models?

    Hi I’m doing my research to potentially buy a second hand model s, but I’m reading that SC speeds can sometimes be very disappointing, depending on the model / version. I read about chademo, ccs and it’s not clear to me. It feels like I’ll be waiting a loonggg time at those SC during my...

    CCS Charging in NA

    The Tesla supercharger network is getting to be unusable when you need it most (i.e., holiday weekend travel). Europe has a CSS adapter that allows charging with the non-proprietary networks (https://electrek.co/2019/04/03/tesla-ccs-adapter-first-look/) for $190. These folks sell a CSS (NA...

    Tesla charging with CCS adapter... coming soon?

    I have been looking at alternatives to Tesla’s Superchargers, as there are times I am somewhere there isn’t one. 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

    A key asset for Tesla is its SuperCharger network. It is what has made it possible for people to consider a Tesla as their primary car, capable of both daily commuting and longer trips, and has driven its vehicle sales. But it's also apparent that the SuperCharger network is an underutilized...

    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...

    Is This The Fastest Charging Non Raven Model X?

    Just had the CCS retrofit and decided to test it. First on 50kW DC, then on a 350kW DC and then on a CCS twin post supercharger. Car is a June 2018 built / Sept 2018 delivered Model X 100D. Video describes my experiences. Hope it's useful:

    Model S/x (eu) Ccs Conversion

    Hi, As many will know, starting June 1st, Tesla is offering to convert existing Model X and S to be compatible with the CCS charge adapter that's available for now S/X builds. Has anyone actually gotten this conversion done already? I (NL) had an appointment planned for June 4th, but it got...

    Charging in Cornwall

    Hello everybody. I'm Georg and since the 2nd of March I'm driving around in London with a Model 3. In a few month I will have holiday in Cornwall (Haven, Riviere Sand). I could easily charge there but it's not allowed. Any ideas where to charge around that area? In London I found Polar Network...

    Likelihood of model 3 supporting ccs

    Anyone here with enough knowledge of the SC and CCS standards to take a stab at the chances the 3 already has what it needs onboard to support CCS via adapter (considering the EU variant is CCS) ? I love the SC network (huge competitive advantage for TSLA) but when away from main highways it’s...

    Will there be enough CCS Superchargers when RHD Model 3 comes to UK later in 2019?

    Will there be enough CCS Superchargers when RHD Model 3 comes to UK later in 2019? Having reserved a Model 3 in late 2018 I am hoping I will be invited to place an order for a RHD Model 3 later in 2019. However, I am feeling very nervous given about every 2 weeks I drive from Southampton (on...

    Most Tesla Superchargers Now Retrofitted With CCS Plugs In Europe: Video

    Here is how Tesla retrofitted Superchargers in just 4 months Tesla gradually retrofitted its Supercharging stations in Europe with plugs for the CCS Combo 2-compatible inlet on the Tesla Model 3. We don’t have exact data, but it seems that the majority of stations were equipped with additional...

    Tesla Model 3 Charges At 117-kW On CCS

    Tesla Model 3 is able to take roughly 120 kW from CCS charger As the first Tesla Model 3 were delivered to customers in Europe, it seems one posted eagerly awaited info about maximum charging power. The European version of the Model 3 is equipped with a CCS Combo-compatible charging inlet...

    Tesla Australia Will Add CCS Chargers To Support Model 3

    Tesla CCS to spread around the world Tesla Model 3 in Europe will get a CCS Combo 2 inlet for DC fast charging standard and AC charging (single- or three-phase), but the change to CCS2 (the European version) will be conducted elsewhere around the world (outside North America and maybe a few CCS...

    No new German SuperChargers due to "Ladesäulenverordnung"?

    I've seen that since Juni 2016 (Yes, 2016!) no new SuperCharger has been added in Germany. In 2016 Tesla was rapidly adding SuperChagers but has stalled since. Could this be due to 'Ladesäulenverordnung': Ladesäulenverordnung – Wikipedia It states in German: My German tells me that it tells...

    CSS -> type 2 -> Tesla

    Has anyone tried to connect a CCS cable into a type 2 cable and then into the car? I know it won't charge because the energy pins are missing. But what would happen?

    CCS Charging options for Model 3

    I know, nothing is known yet, but just thinking about this. For the US and some other markets Tesla created their own connector, but the EU and other markets use a modified Type 2 charging port. With that in mind, it could be possible that Tesla modifies the chargeport in such a way that...
