    All unavoidable steps in taking high voltage AC grid power and gently easing it into batteries not much larger than AA.

    Each step has losses, and lots of research has gone into making those losses as small as they are.

    I'm sure they're just waiting for some juice...everything needed to charge Tesla wise looks to be there.

    Any more news? The holidays are a week away and I'd love to roll in the Tesla but it's a bit hairy Coffs Harbour to Gold Coast in a 70.

    If I were you you I'd assume it won't be energised by then. It still doesn't have a power supply. The 3/32 HPWC at Ballina Eye Centre is a great backup option.

    Coffs to Gold Coast should be easy in a 70 as have gone both ways in my 70D fully loaded with luggage and pax with careful driving at around speed limit.

    Last time I skipped Coffs and went straight from Port SC to Ballina for a small top up before heading to GC.

    Do you have access to a charger on the Gold Coast?

    It's what they do; they are a castle.
