    I'm the new owner of Roadster #302. The Texas heat does a number on the Roadster A/C. It also makes charging with the standard 110 cable difficult as the battery cooling fans continue to run while charging. Any tips there?

    I' may be open to buying one of the 30/50A chargers if I can get one down here fairly reasonably. J1772 HPC are available locally for about $700, but would require the converter 'can' which as I understand are about $500 by themselves.

    Anyone selling Roadster chargers??

    I charged on 110v for a year or so. When it's hot there's not much you can do. Open the trunk, cool items on PEM but it's best to go 220 30A.
