"Tesla is also expected to install Megachargers in Supercharger stations across the United States as it ramps production on the Semi."
False. So a semi with a 53ft trailer can block all stalls? Never happening. Maybe V5 chargers will hit 1mw but the semi mega chargers will never be installed at normal car charging sites. And V4 is currently limited to 250kw. Even raising voltage to 800 only gets you to 500+, not 1000.
