    I’m testing out supercharging here in Austin and noticed that I’m only getting 26kw + 3kw when charging from 50% SOC. Is it supposed to be that low?

    I charged with a P90D last weekend at about 100kw which seems much more in line. I thought model and battery didn’t matter when it came to supercharing. Maybe this is a defective stall this time? Has anyone noticed this?

    Probably yes. I see that it is 105º F in Austin today, at 57% it will very likely be throttled back.

    yeah when its super hot, it'll take a long time to ramp up. if you're already at that SOC, dont expect a high ramp up.
