    LFP battery, charge to 100% each night?

    I’m looking for some advice. I’ve picked up my new MIC SR+ today. Build quality is superb. The battery is LFP based and the charge screen shows 100% available on the charging scale. The car even had 98% charge when I collected it. What’s the recommended charging routine for the LFP? Can I...

    Ohme's new smart charging app

    Some of you will have been using Ohme's smart charging cable which is able to use a dynamic tariff like Agile Octopus to charge you car when electricity is cheapest (or greenest). They've now released a smart app which for a Tesla (and hopefully other cars with an API to follow) can apparently...

    Apartment Charging

    Greetings! We just moved to Denver with our Model 3. Previously we charged in the garage with the mobile charger plugged into a 110 volt outlet. It worked fine for as much as we drove. Our apartment originally said charging would be free but this changed once we got here! They are using Sema...

    Model 3 Charging Questions. *Looking at purchasing*

    Hello, I am a long time Tesla fan (as I am sure most of us are). I am looking into buying my first Tesla within the next few months however I do have a few concerns with charging. The house I am renting right now only has standard outlets in the garage (no washer/dryer plugs) which means I...

    Charging complete notifications

    I never seem to get any notifications from the app when charging is complete. I have both "charging interrupted" and "charging complete" set in my app. Is there any other way to get notifications via text (like through ifttt or teslascope) that I am not aware of?

    Tesla not charging, please help!

    My 2019 M3 has been charging on a 6-20 connection for about a year. Over the weekend, I noticed that it stopped charging (see picture). It says it was getting 0/mph, 2/16 amps, and 245V. What does that mean? Does it mean that my Tesla 6-20 adapter is bad or is it more likely something wrong...

    Tesla to Tesla charging

    Hi guys, I was wondering if it could theoretically feasible to charge a Tesla from another tesla in case you run out of juice ? This could be an easy problem solving for people running out of power and could probably fix your energy problem way faster than a power generator? I remember that at...

    Sharing my no driveway/on street parking setup

    One of the biggest advantages of EVs that can get overlooked is in reducing air pollution. Of course where this is an issue, and where councils have targets to reduce it, is in dense urban environments. Bristol City Council's own planned diesel band and Clean Air Zone encompasses just the city...

    Charging problems or weather related?

    I might be having a charging issue...not sure. When I got home last night after a snow/rainy hour commute, I brought my charger to the port and pressed the button. It opened but the lights didn't come on and the little tab that was in there clicked a few times. After that it finally lit up...

    Scheduled charging

    For all of us retired individuals enjoying the Tesla, I wonder why the Tesla app does not allow variable scheduled charging. Even better, since I am an avid Outlook calendar user, and Tesla can certainly read my calendar appointments, why it can't determine from a calendar appointment to have...

    Cost of use/interactive EV Charging log

    My landlord recently blamed my electric car purchase on the sudden increase in the electric bill (electric is already included in my rent), so to disprove her, I created this spreadsheet on Google sheet that shows the electrical expense and gas savings of owning an EV. Feel free to view...

    Model 3 showing wrong kWh consumption?

    I charged my car to 80% after 41miles of driving, it is now at 52%. Since last charge kWh show 14kWh. I did 4 trips of about 10 miles each in winter to accumulate these 41miles. (Also preheated car 2 times for about 10 minutes each). My car LR-AWD charge to 300miles. Here is my math to show...

    2020, 2019, 2018 Model 3 Battery Capacities & Charging Constants

    I should have done this a while ago, but I've finally compiled all the data that Tesla provides to the EPA, and put it into a spreadsheet. The detailed 2020 test data is now available, so we can see why things are rated the way they are. Through formulas, I've also tried to capture what...

    Brand new P3M, low battery range?

    I just received my new M3P (< 200 miles on the odometer). I left the max charge at the default of 90%. When charged to 90%, the range reported is only 263 miles, which works out to 292 miles @ 100% charge. That is quite a bit lower than the 310 mile range it is supposed to get. Is this an...

    I've been controlling my powerwall 2 via its web interface for getting on for two years.

    Sorry if this is somewhere else already but does anyone know if the charger installation rebate is still available? I live in Toronto. I couldn't find an updated thread for this and I know some rebates were clawed back in 2019. I'm trying to decide if it's worth putting in the full out wall...

    Teach me how to charge!

    I’ve had my M3 for a week (delivered to my house when I was away so I never got a dealer run through) and all the videos just show plugging it in. That didn’t work. I called and they sent a service guy out who said my cable was broken and switched it out. Then he said I have to squeeze the...

    Safe to charge SR+ to 100% and sit overnight before roadtrip?

    Hi all—I pick up my SR+ in a week and then I’ll be taking it on a 900 mi r/t road trip for the holidays. I usually don’t look forward to the drive but this year, there is no place I’d rather be than the driver’s seat of my new Model 3! Question for the group: I know you aren’t supposed to...

    Winter Range and Charging

    It is pretty well known that winter temperatures hit EVs pretty hard when it comes to range. It's not clear to me how much it impacts charging. I'm not talking about charging currents since level 2 charging at home never rises to a point that it is limited really. I'm talking about how much...

    100% = 370 rated miles? Or not ....

    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...

    Charging Limiting To 200 Volts

    I have had my m3 for a little while now and have been charging at public stations. For example, a 6.6kw chargepoint locations but when I plugin, it maxes out at 30 amps and about 200 volts which results in 6kw, not 6.6kw and a charge rate of 22/23 mph. I am not able to change anything but the...
