    Hi All,

    Apologies if this is on another thread, but I haven't been able to get detailed info on what each battery type designation (A, B, C, D, E, F) means. I know the charging speed is improved on each iteration, but not much more.

    I also know you can find your battery type on a sticker hidden underneath the car behind the front passenger wheel well.

    Does a specific battery version (i.e. F) mean that it can be upgraded? Is it a new type of shape/size/weight? Or is it just more efficient in charging/maintaining charge?

    Thanks in advance for any info you have!

    It's the revision. So the original battery was A, then they did some change and bumped the rev to B, etc.

    As for what changed, Tesla won't say. We do know the A batteries are limited at the superchargers. AFAIK, rev B and up are all the same as far as supercharging.
