    No, of course not.

    My recent experience showed a max charge rate of 117kw reached for a few minutes but by 15 minutes in it was already tapering slightly when I terminated the charging session and after the 15 minute charge it showed 465 mi/hr +106 mi added although by the time I parked 5 minutes later it showed 3 more miles added for a total of 109 added in 15 minutes, I was really impressed by that.

    My charge starting at 8% (26 miles range showing) At first the charge rate was somewhere in the mid 50's and being new to this I thought I had a dud charger but by the 5 min mark it ramped to 117kw and started to taper slightly after 11 min in ( +75 mi ) but even at 15 min into the charge it still was at 114kw and had added 106 mi, I terminated the charge because I had more range than I needed, I hope this helps a little?

    I may be missing out on some folks having fun here, but to use a car-analogy it is possible to drive your car at a(n average) speed of e.g. 60 miles per hour, without driving for an entire hour. If you were to drive with a speed of for example 60 miles per hour for 15 minutes, you would cover a distance of 15 miles while maintaining that speed. With a speed limit of 20 miles per hour, you could likely get a speeding ticket while driving 60 miles per hour, even if you did it for just a minute. People who know about a math topic called differentiation are able to think of a speed such as 60 miles per hour, even if it is maintained for an infinitely short span of time.

    The same logic applies when the charging power is stated as a speed, e.g. 500 miles per hour, for e.g. 15 minutes.

    I got a charge rate of 488 MPH at Cabazon in my Model 3 on Sunday. Didn't notice the power and don't have photographic evidence.

    I am sure this question has been answered many times b4 but since i'm a lil late to the party here:

    how long does it take to charge a Model 3 from ~0 to 90 % charge using a SCer?

    Does someone have a Supercharging curve for other starting %s, say 25%, 50% and 75%?

    Best I have is this one from 22% to 81%, 31 minutes for 186 range miles.

    Thanks. Now we need curves from ~50% to >80% and from ~75% to >95%.

    Where was that screen capture of data from? I have not seen that - sorry, still coming up the learning curve

    It's all the same curve, just where you start and end changes. Use the graph @Zoomit posted above. To go from 50 to 200RM, it takes ~22min. 200 to 300 takes ~35 min. You don't need "start at 50RM" and "start at 200RM" curves, just find your current state of charge and desired endpoint and find the diff in the minutes value on the x axis.

    Wow. This sucker charges fast. First time Supercharging (other than a 10 minute try to make sure it worked), and I hit 474mph @ 112kW. Saw as high as 118kW but at that point it was only doing 437mi/hi because it was a few mins after I plugged in and the battery was at 55mi range. I didn't watch it obsessively, just checked a few times and the rate kept going up so I kept taking new screenshots.

    It was funny, car wanted me to supercharge for 25 minutes (so that I'd arrive home with >20% battery, I get it ,even though I was starting from 14%)... but by the time I plugged the car in, walked around to the passenger side, opened the door and collected my belongings and looked at the screen it had ALREADY added 10 miles of range. Within maybe a minute or two. Jeez.

    Instead of having a nice leisurely time to enjoy a coffee I had to rush to sbux, find a bathroom, rush back to the car.. and it charged WAY more than I was expecting.

    The Model 3 is the best Tesla for road trips. It charges so much faster (in miles per minute added) than the S or X. Stops can literally be less than 10 minutes to hop between chargers.

    I do wonder how these people get their car down to zero rated miles. :D:D

    Would love to see a graph like this from an urban charger charge setting! Very helpful, thanks!
