    I took my brand new Tesla Model X to the new Las Vegas Version 3 Supercharger at the Linq.Tesla has stated the new S and X cars will be able to charger at 200KW while the Model 3 can charge up to 250KW. so far I have not seen and evidence that this is true so I wanted to find out for myself. Not going to force you guys to watch if you don’t want to but I only got up to 140KW. Apparently the new software update that would allow me to get to 200KW isn’t out yet... Thoughts?

    Interesting, had not heard anything about a new update being needed. Thanks for doing the test. I’ve been very curious how my new X would handle the V3 chargers.

    I'm looking at a photo I took in my Raven Long Range at a V2 SuperCharger the other day showing 143 kW (529 mi/hr) @ 34% of charge. I'm sure I've seen it as high as the 540s mi/hr at one other time.

    It definitely seems like the V3 has no benefit over V2 until they send the update they said the new car would get to unlock the 200KW.

    It's certainly partly as you suspected: that the battery was not initially as warm as it needed to be. It may well be that the full capability may require new firmware but another though is that perhaps the BMS is limiting charge as this is a brand new vehicle and it wants/needs to get some data on its new battery pack before it allows full bore charging.

    Interesting I didn’t think about that. When I get back from my road trip I will try again.

    Are all the stalls V3?
    I couldn't see the 250KW sign on top of the stall
    Range mode was on? Though may not have any affect on charging speed

    Every supercharger is V3 but they also have 15 destination chargers.

    Please keep us updated on your maximum charge speeds. If I can hit 200kw on a Model X LR, I would be ecstatic. In my 2016 Model X, I can only hit 96kwW.

    About 135kW at V2 superchargers for me and only for a short period of time.

    I saw someone post on a Facebook page he got up to 163kw. After I get the next update I will try again.

    Can't wait to see what Battery Investor Day reveals. If I can get a MX actually charging at 250kw, that's a win.

    It would definitely be nice. But don’t let that be a reason not to buy. I drove 5700 miles across the United States and back in 18 days and never once had an issue with charging speeds.

    I have a 2017 75d.

    Highest I've been on v2 is 122kw. Maybe 128 occasionally. These are at 150kw chargers.

    I was under impression that with v3 I'll get 170kw..

    The post before me is getting me scared....

    There is a v3 about to open by me in NJ. Either way very excited bc no sharing power but 170kw, or as someone said 200kw, would be phenomenal!

    This thread is about Raven MX’s (post May-219 builds) that are capable of 200kw on a V3 SC. 75D’s will not hit that, or 170. I believe the most they’ve been updates to is 120’s in the best case.

    130 seems to be the max. Never seen it go higher than that.
