    Home on a hill - regenerative braking

    We live at about 2,500 elevation and my wife works at sea level - so the M3LR is charged (currently limited at around 70%) when she leaves the house - going down the hill she'll get the reduced regen braking alert at some point. Battery is still only at the limited charge amount. Is there any...

    "charge limit"

    Hi Please could you explain? 1. Why does the tesla app say "249-254 (it keeps varying) miles 'charge limit' " (i am using a Siemens 5.5 kw on-street charger). 2 what does it mean? 3. will it just switch off at c. 250 miles charge?

    Tesla App Upgrades and Charging

    I am not sure if this is the best area to post this but here goes. I am finding a changed behavior in the app regarding charge limit. Not sure if this is a function of the recent software updates, the relatively cold weather or both. By cold overnight lows in the high-teens or low 20s. So not...

    Is charging to less than max still the recommendation?

    I was reading through the instruction manual, and limiting charging to 100% was not mentioned (unless I missed it). I did find this: "Model Y has one of the most sophisticated battery systems in the world. The most important way to preserve the battery is to LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE PLUGGED IN when...

    Charge Limit Impacts Charge Time?

    I KNOW this question has been asked before. I thought I knew the answer but I'm starting to question what I thought was "fact". Does setting your Charge Limit have any impact on the amount of time it takes to charge at a Supercharger? If you set your Charge Limit to 100% will you remain at the...

    How to disable 100% charging warning message?

    So for the past week I've been charging my software-limited 60 MS to 100% on daily basis, since it shouldn't be hurting the battery pack. In that time, twice I've received a warning message about the 100% daily charging, which I just dismiss without changing my charging limit. How often and long...

    72 kW for a bone-dry S 70D?

    So a week or so ago, I'm at the North Houston combined SuperCharger and Showroom. I deliberately ran down my SOC to about 3 RM to see what kind of current the chargers would give me. Since it was close to dawn, I had all six SuperChargers to myself. Temperatures were hovering around 27ºF, and...

    217 miles at 100% on my 60D

    i decided to charge to 100% today to see on what the battery maxes out. I have a little over 400 miles on the clock and it was 19*F out. Nothing out of the ordinary, right?

    Regenerative braking and charging limit

    I have tried to find the answer to this question all over, and I can't quite figure it out, so I apologize if this has been answered before... I live at the top of a fairly steep hill that is about 1000 feet above sea level. I pretty much lose the entire 1000 feet over the first mile of my...

    Supercharging a a low capacity battery

    With superchargers starting to be 135 kW and maybe up to 150 kW sometime in the near future what effect will this have on smaller capacity batteries like in the Model 3. Current Models 70 (75) and 90 charge at less than 2 C, but if the Model 3 battery comes as a 50 kW version then you'll be...
