    Are all the new superchargers that Tesla builds the liquid cooled kind?

    It does not appear they have expanded this beyond the initial trial site in Mountain View.

    I'm pretty sure that the Supercharger units have been liquid cooled from the beginning but that the new thing is a liquid cooled cord going between the stand and the car. Honestly, I don't think I've even seen a picture of one of those.

    Did you mean to refer to the Supercharger cable, the one that plugs into the car?
    Or do you mean the Supercharger hardware that is mounted in the fenced off enclosure?

    With the Computer History Museum nearby, it's a perfect location for Tesla Motors to demonstrate the latest technology.

    Welcome | Computer History Museum

    When you charge up, it's a great place to visit. Even an hour long run through is a blast, although spending several hours is more entertaining. Don't miss it.
