    Hello,

    I purchased a Tesla Model X 72 A charger to charge a battery bank for a electric aircraft we are working on.

    Here are a few videos of the inside.




    I will add more as I continue probing around and hacking it into submission :D.
    I figure you guys may be interested on it.

    Please let me know if you like them and what else would you like to see.

    Good luck! I think @wk057 gave up on getting the Model S charger to work outside the car. (Too many safety checks/fail-safes that have to all be exactly right for it to work.)

    Yes!!
    He mentioned they are working on the charger which is what also made me purchase this charger when I saw it pop up.

    I still plan to do the teardown (and not damage anything) as a learning exercise and see how clever Tesla is with the packaging. So far really clever.
