    English has a number of distinctive collective nouns. Eg. A murder of crows or a parliament of owls. I was looking at photos from the recent TMC Australian meet and I realised we need a collective noun for Teslas. I think the answer is obvious. An excess (XS) of Teslas.

    Many long-time Tesla folks have called a Tesla Coil for the collective noun.

    A Nikola of Teslas.
    A battery of Teslas.

    ...but it's hard to look past
    A Tesla coil (as previously suggested)

    A flux of Tesla? Sounds right.

    I thought we agreed a couple of years ago on 'a charge of Tesla'.

    I agree with all of the above.

    Of course the Philistines will probably use a "LOT"

    And btw, a Charge of Teslas sort of reminds me of the guy who was giving away free batteries. "No Charge!"

    Given the etymology of the name Tesla, I suggest:
    Tesla adz

    Only if your model has the $8000 flux capacitor option.
