Believe so. Think the older 72 amp internal chargers required 2 individual devices. Now they all use an upgraded 48 amp unit, but only 1.

While people want access to the faster charging older units, for the most part, those charging overnight will see little benefit of the faster chargers. You can still charge completely overnight, but it just takes longer plugged in.

Yes. Getting a quick charge when you need it takes longer. They used to charge a premium for the dual chargers. Changed up to offer 48 amp chargers as standard, but dropped the dual 72 amp option.

Think even the newest Ravens are only 48 amp on board charging. They offset this by charging much faster if you use a Supercharger on a trip where waiting time is more precious.
