They will be the standard 120kW Superchargers. No V3 yet - V3 is identifiable with only having the CCS cable.Looking good
Thanks for the update
Does anyone know what KW they are
The top one is the "legacy" Type 2 only cable for the Model S/X and the bottom one is the CCS2 cable for Model 3/Y. Tesla uses the same charging connectors in New Zealand as Europe.Very curious. What are the two separate charging cables per station for?

It is a bit confusing. Had the same problem at first too.Both cables are exclusively for supercharging Teslas.
The lower cable has a 'Tesla' plug for the Model S and Model X.
The upper cable has a CCS2 plug for the Model 3 (in non-US markets).
History of Tesla Supercharging is the Model S and X have a 'Tesla' charge port that is a modified IEC Type 2 port
that accepts DC high voltage on the outer pins.
The Model 3 was designed for the later European DC fast charging standard CCS2 (that is non North America markets).
Tesla modified the SC units to charge both Model S/X and Model 3/Y.
Last week I assisted a new Model 3 owner using the Ballarat SC for the first time who selected the 'Tesla' plug (wrong) which actually fits the Model 3's IEC Type 2 port.
Once I sorted him out to use the top cable with the beefier connector, he was OK to charge.
