    Charging up both cars to 90% just in case...
    Don’t need a battery backup for my phone with a Tesla in the garage!

    Hopefully one day we can pull juice from the car's battery to power the house in case of emergencies

    Be safe.

    We were on Maui earlier this month watching that storm stay far enough away. My wife has family near Honolulu and we have friends on the west side of Maui. Keeping you all in our thoughts.

    Yes, this is a time when charging to 100% is definitely warranted. Which is more important, saving your life or add a little bit to the life of your battery.

    Just keep it at 100% until the threat is over.

    Bummed that my referral PW is STILL not available yet. Would have been perfect for right now. I'm also charging up 100% and grateful for the added stall-resistant effects of driving a Tesla.

    Stay safe everyone...

    Wow, that's interesting. 90% on my 90D is 263. First time I have charged to 100% it was 291.
