    If you check the video from YouTube Byron, the 100 battery did not have supercharging speed limited even after lots of DC sessions. Tesla introduced it during 2019.12 or 14 updates without telling anyone.

    We need to know the amount of dc chargers that starts to cap and if there’s more speed cap coming when the number goes higher.

    Fun fact:
    75D is supercharging much faster after the update than the 100D with supercharger speed cap.

    Chadmeo is still fine as it’s only 48kW speed, but it does contribute to the dc session

    I don’t think this is correct. The SC can be the destination. Here’s the section from Tesla’s blog (bold emphasis mine):

    On-Route Battery Warmup
    New Supercharging infrastructure isn’t the only way we are improving our customers’ charging experience. Beginning this week, Tesla is rolling out a new feature called On-Route Battery Warmup. Now, whenever you navigate to a Supercharger station, your vehicle will intelligently heat the battery to ensure you arrive at the optimal temperature to charge, reducing average charge times for owners by 25%.

    He's talking about slow charging now that he has charged at SC's so much.
