    Yes. Agree with above. Now you have s chance on a 60 to do it!

    I believe balancing kicks in at 93%. Not sure what happens on a software locked car.

    Some have reported the SvC has charged to true 100% for them to balance.

    That's a very nice surprise from Tesla. But maybe a little performance boost could also help them get out of there faster! ;)

    This's pretty awesome of them.

    Know what'd also be awesome? To uncork all of them so they could get out faster.

    You do realize the BMS constantly adjusts estimated range based on driving conditions. My miles went up over time.

    This is a magnificent thing Tesla has done!

    With thousands of people getting on the road to uncertain destinations, escaping one of the largest storms in history, giving them an extra 20% of range might will take a lot of anxiety out of their situation.

    Tesla...it drives like no other.

    An opportunity cost is not $0. On top of that take into account that someone had to implement such an update - then take into account possible issues/complaints from such an upgrade (People have claimed an update damaged their screen - cause software bugging, etc).

    This is a good gesture and Tesla should be applauded for it.

    Did you have to do a software update for this?

    I would assume if so you would have to update software again to remove it?

    Great move Tesla!
    Wish all you folks well - stay safe.
    And, be sure to do a couple of 100% charges... good for evacuation situations, and good for battery balancing.

    Sooo do you have to download software to make this work or it is just there via data stream?

    A bit off topic, but just a quick note. I was Supercharging at around 10% up to 90% once a week for a while. I was losing 1 RM each time (per week). So, with about 10K miles and 9 months I have 4% degradation. Believe me, I feel your pain. Since stopping that two months ago I've not lost any RM. I've keep my SOC between 60%-90%, which is my typical commute. Is it the low State Of Charge (SOC), or heat from the SC going from 10% to 90%, or my 90 battery with different chemistry? I don't know. However, whenever I asked someone that posted they had a low (or no) degradation, I asked about their level of discharge. All told me they keep a high SOC (80%-90%). And one of those persons had a 90 battery. So maybe not battery chemistry.

    Just one more reason to love this company! Class act all the way around. I wonder if there is even more performance to unlock in my car to help me get out faster :)

    Stay safe Florida peeps.
