    Does anybody have pictures of the charger that goes inside the car under the passenger seat?
    I am trying to understand where does the AC from the HPWC get's converted to DC and I saw a picture of the junction box and the wiring diagram but it seems that the charging plug is connected directly to the high voltage junction box didn't saw it go to a charger.

    This is correct the charge port, battery, charger, and DU are all joined in the HVJB. When charging on AC the charge port AC power is routed into the charger and then the charger feeds the battery. When using a supercharger the charger is bypassed and the DC from the supercharger is feed right into the battery pack

    This is actually the Model X one, but the Model S looks almost identical. binary.jpg

    The charger converts AC electricity into DC electricity to charge the battery. It uses an isolated boost-buck converter, with a power-factor correcting boost pre-converter (utilising several large electrolytics) followed by a buck/boost transformer.
