Could you "blog" on your own website so you would not be "moderated" but instead would be a moderator?
I'm curious what does the "057" refer to?
I've read some of your posts here and have a better understanding of some of considerations for options in repairing versus replacing a High Voltage Battery. Thank you for that.
We recently opted to have Tesla replace/upgrade our failing 85kWh battery in our 2012 Signature Edition P85 Model S to a new 90kWh pack with the latest batteries being put in the Model S/X. It cost us ~$22,400 installed and warranted by Tesla. Our charging speed has increased from 88kW to 120 kW, range has increased from 220-230 real world miles at 100% SOC to 270 miles, and it has a 4 year/50,000 mile warranty which can be utilized at any Tesla Service Center.
Our original pack was 400 Volts. The replacement is 350 Volts. Since the kWh is increased, or even if it was the same, my understanding is that compared to the 400 Volt versions, ratio of numbers of cells in parallel to series has increased with the intent of "spreading out the load" across more cells than the 400 Volt versions. What do you think of that approach to improving longevity?
I haven't noticed any loss of acceleration, which surprised me. Overall we're satisfied with the upgrade.
I find much of what I've read from you informative and hope you will continue to contribute your knowledge and experience to these forums.
If you are Jason Hughes, your homemade battery storage system made from recycled Tesla batteries is very interesting. I appreciate that someone with practical knowledge and experience working on projects like that is part of the discussions here.
