    Loss of Supercharging capabilities

    Just wanted to let everyone know that it is possible to lose DC charging capabilities and still have AC charging. This happened on a holiday this year ... DC stopped charging ... but when we tried AC we were able to charge. Of course it took a few hours and stops to figure it out and try the AC...

    The future of CHADEMO in Australia

    Bloody Chademo plugs! More dual charger sites made into effective single charger sites because 95% of EVs in Australia use CCS and probably 99% by 2025. Hopefully they will rip out the Chademo plug and cable and install CCS in the near future when they realise that their dual charging units...

    Vehicle to Grid

    I've had a thought about using my 14' Model S as a "power wall" in certain situations. I know Tesla doesn't support this but im thinking about this from a technical aspect. During DC fast charging, the battery is directly connected to the charge port so is it possible to make some communication...

    Exclusive 50kw charging - battery damage

    Hi everyone Does anyone have any personal experience or other information on the long term impact of using almost exclusively 50Kw charging on a MIC model 3? I have a cheap 50kw charger outside my house, and cheap 7kw charging near the office. Personally I’d rather use the 50kw charger so...

    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...

    How hot should the batteries get while charging?

    I had always assumed that the battery pack required some heating before high-speed DC charging, but that once the charging got underway most of the noise the car makes was due to cooling. I had also assumed that ~25°C was best for the batteries. See this (admittedly old) post which mentions...

    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"...

    Supercharger - Brooklyn, NY - Brooklyn Museum

    This is so exciting. I just stumbled unto a completed supercharger at the Brooklyn Museum/Brooklyn Botanic Garden parking. Ten completed urban chargers. They are fenced, however, maybe for cosmetic work. My phone memory was full and I couldn't take any pictures. I will be going back to for...

    Chargepoint Express Plus: First true Tesla Supercharger competitor 400KW

    ChargePoint just released the First charger on the market that blows the Tesla Supercharger out of the water. With the ability to charge at 400KW, using technology already found in Tesla Superchargers. The CEO of the company has also said that he would install a Tesla plug if Tesla worked with...

    ICE Manufacturers not worried about the SuperCharger competition?

    At the risk of sounding like a click-baity thread, I didn't know what to title it, but I wanted to keep it broad. Apologies if this thread has been discussed elsewhere as I'm fairly new to the forums but have been trying to keep up around here. Some ICE dealers already have limited charging...

    Tesla Roadster: CHAdeMO 50kW DC fast charging!

    Elon zag het niet zitten om de Roadster eigenaars te voorzien van Supercharging, maar gelukkig was er nog QuickChargePower die hun CHAdeMO lader hebben aangepast voor de Roadster. Gisteren was het dan zo ver: de eerste succesvolle test! Laden ging vlot aan 400V+ 125A = 50kW. Dit moet toelaten...
