    Third Party purchase - supercharging

    Hi all, I am picking up my first ever EV this week, a 2014 Model S P85+. I’m very excited to be getting this car but am a little worried about the trip back!

    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...
