Discussion in 'Texas Supercharger locations' started by BerTX, Feb 9, 2018.
There are Texans, Texians, and Texicans, but I don't believe there are any Texlans.
V3 is 4 stalls per cabinet right? So this will be 24 stalls and not 12?
Thanks so much for all your input. I am driving from Fort Worth to Silverton, CO at the end of Sept. so hopefully the new station will be fully functional by then.
No one outside Tesla have ever seen V3 cabinets. In the existing test sites the cabinets are hidden from view. All the information we have regarding V3 cabinets is from unconfirmed leaks. I find it hard to believe that this site will host 24 V3 superchargers. A more plausible explanation is that this site will be V2 after all.
Perhaps V2 now, but 'V3 ready' if they want to upgrade in 4 -5 years.
Certainly very grateful it is finally happening. The 229 mile stretch to Childress, although doable, was stressful!
This was yesterday, May 21, 2019, I stopped to check it out on my way to Amarillo. I really like the location. Easy on/off Hwy 287. Wonder how it will be in the middle of the night, in the early morning hours.
Ok, y'all are some teases. As long as the site remains accessible, will the next person to stop by and take photos PLEASE get a zoomed in picture of one of the labels in the upper corner of the supercharger cabinet covers so that the text is readable. That will tell us definitively what type of hardware this is (I'm still very dubious about the V3 claims). I've highlighted the labels I'm particularly interested in (see attached pic). Thanks in advance!
Looks like a V2.5 to me. I’m on site right now.
Thanks for the curveball, Tesla.
Well, alrighty then. That's a new one on me. It'll be interesting to see what V2.5 means in terms of practical charging power (kW) and if it's at all different from V2. Or whether the differences are more geared towards improved operations/maintenance type stuff (i.e. things that only Tesla would really see). But, while I'm still in the "not V3" camp and feel my prior doubt is mostly vindicated, that's definitely different hardware from the previously seen stuff--the V2 cabinets have a different part number and their description says "SUPERCHARGER II". Which is exciting.
V2.5 is so 2018 !!
I’ll make a trip that way in a week or two and get more pictures, unless someone beats me to it.
Yeah, it looks like they are the old cabinets! At least they are putting in the power from the grid to support the new higher speed ones.
Given that they are putting in 6 cabinets looks like the old ones - one per 2 stalls, vs the new ones one per 4 stalls?
All that power not being used!
I assume Semis are a factor in any v3 location, especially the early ones. Is it possible a big chunk of the power being installed is reserved for megachargers? Is this a popular trucking route? It's definitely along the route Tesla uses to ship cars to Texas.
Perhaps V2.5 are still 150kW, but don't need the autotransformers thus simplifying installation. In any case, the the output probably won't be 250kW, so this number should be removed from supercharge.info. I don't think we'll know the max output of this site for sure until it is live.
Looks like 135kW to me, same as Supercharger II
Probably Supercharger 2.5 is the same as SuC II but it can play more games, and only needs a (free) replacement of the computer to deliver the full 250kW
6 cabinets=12 stalls seems like a lot of charging for that route. Perhaps this will also be a makeshift Tesla Semi charger, not the famed megacharger but enough power to charge the Semi on a southern east-west route. Just pure speculation on my part.
>seems like a lot of charging for that route
I expect there will be a great deal of traffic at that site. although not an interstate it should have been. anyone from Houston or Dallas or Louisiana going to Albuquerque or Santa Fe or anywhere in Colorado. It's a lot of folks.
Progress Check yesterday
