Does anyone want to buy a brand new Powerwall 2? PM me if so.
I have one on order. Would you share why you are selling yours? Thanks……..Dave
Sure, how much do you want for it, and where are you located?
Curious how you have one to sell. My impression they had to be bought with the installation.
Won't be able to use it. Contact me at 904-629-0887
Did it come with documentation?
Of course, it's brand new . I wanted to use it in my current house but the entire back portion of my house is already being used by my pool solar. I will however be designing my new home in the ne t couple years to accommodate two Tesla Powerwall(s).
Not happy about having to give it up but someone should benefit from it.
Is it the DC or AC version?
Is the documentation for the unit available online somewhere? Or if not, can you put up a scan of it? Many thanks!
This is the only link to information I have as the unit has not arrived yet. Tesla Powerwall and Tesla just unveiled its new at-home battery — here's what you need to know
That is a key question and I would advise against committing to purchasing the Powerwall 2 being offered until you know which version it is. They are very different.
Why is there no price listed?

The reatil cost of the Powerwall 2 is $5,500.00 The unit is liquid cooled, it is the DC version which then converts the power to AC with the built in inverter for home use. Here is a link for all of the specs. scroll to the bottom for all of the answers that have been asked.
Are you sure about that? My understanding is that the DC version doesn't have an inverter, only the AC version has that.
Did you happen to read the "All in One" part in the second section? I posted this to answer all of the questions asked.
Yes, and that is correct for the AC version of the Powerwall 2. It does not apply to the DC version of the Powerwall 2. (At least from everything we have been able to gather so far.)
That is not correct. My understanding, based on information I have received from Tesla Energy, is as follows:
The DC Powerwall accepts DC in for charging and provides DC out when discharging. It regulates its DC power internally. It must be connected to an external DC/AC inverter such as the the SolarEdge SE7600A-USS to provide AC power.
The AC Powerwall only accepts AC in for charging and only provides AC out when discharging. It does not require an external inverter to provide AC power, it can do that directly. It of course a DC battery, that is how it stores energy, but it does not provide DC out or accept DC in.
I urge anyone considering buying a Powerwall to consult with Tesla Energy directly or deal with a qualified system installer who has installed Powerwalls already. Figuring this stuff out can be confusing for the layperson. I am a "layperson", not an expert, and I am relying on what I have learned from Tesla Energy directly.
I believe you are misunderstanding what that Powerwall information graphic is saying. The AC Powerwall does use an "internal inverter to convert DC energy to the AC energy required for your home". The "DC energy" referred to is the energy stored in the Powerwall battery cells. The DC Powerwall does not internally convert DC to AC, it requires a compatible external inverter.
Note that the Powerwall information graphic you posted does not specify whether it is describing the AC or the DC version. It appears to me to be a blend of both versions. Tesla has simplified their advertising to make it less confusing for the layperson. In the future they may release more details to the public. When you buy a Powerwall from Tesla Energy they will guide you as to which is the most appropriate model for your intended use.
I wonder why they don't have an AC/DC version yet. Maybe in Powerwall 3.0.
Looks like we will be able to use the Powerwall after all . That being said, moderator please remove this ad or consider it closed.
Now, just want for Tesla to contact us directly for the installation.
In case anyone is following, I'll likely have one or two "founders" PW2s for sale.. so contact me privately if you're interested.
