    ABB installs electric vehicle fast chargers at BP service stations



    Of course some of us have already used them :wink:

    This is one of the reasons why I want CHAdeMO on the Model S next to 3-phase charging.

    There are so many CHAdeMO chargers being rolled out lately!

    This BP station is exactly halfway my home and office. Do I understand correct from Widoh that I cannot use this charging station for the Model S???

    Let's hope they will or other else I can always start an aftermarket company to produce them :)

    that should be possible, because the identificationsignal is apparently the same in chademo and tesla-charger! (if i understoud correctly)

    I've been at this charging station. It is already some time around and offers 550V-120A. Sweet... if I there was an adapter for my roadster.

    This is unlikely, since Tesla's propritary connector for the Model S dies not appear to have the pins needed for the CAN communication link that ChadeMo uses.

    I would bet that Tesla is using the new SAE J1772 PLC communication, which does not need dedicated pins for communication. The new PLC communication protocol is specified in the latest version of SAE's J1772 recommended practice, which also supports DC fast charging with a humongous combination connector.

    @GSP

    do you have this version you refer to? (SAE J1772)

    I think its's more likely for Tesla to equip de Model S with a 3-phase charger than DC fast-charging. The effects of DC charging at the battery could be very negative, but there are no decent studies to the effects...
