    Interesting...

    "It will operate from either a DC input from a FAST charger, battery bank, or another car OR from standard AC sources 120vac, 240vac single phase or 240vac three phase.

    This device can actually charge in EITHER direction - Forwards INTO your vehicle pack or FROM your vehicle pack OUT to another vehicle.

    Additionally, it allows 240VAC charging at up to 100 amperes - a 24 kW charger two and half times capacity than is provided in the Tesla Model S"

    $3400 MSRP

    Two questions...

    How did they calculate 100A as being "two and a half times" 80A (i.e. Model S with twin chargers)?

    And did you have a specific reason to post this in the Roadster section? Would be better to move this to the charging section...?

    Pretty sure they "conveniently forgot" about the twin chargers option, Doug_G.

    I'm interested in what this (or similar) technology might offer to a Roadster... DC charging and 3 phase AC would be amazing even if limited to ~16kW.

    But will it find the true love of my life and cure my fallen arches?? Huh?


    > 500 amp controller (discharge from battery pack to series wound motor)

    Series wound motor?? Like on a forklift?
