    It's hot here in Dallas, TX. Temp of the car was 106F in the shade:

    I charge at work in my warehouse, and noticed a bunch of water around the Tesla. I know there is battery temp management, but be aware of how much water will be expelled in hot weather. Keeping the battery cool leaves a bunch of water. Most people won't need to worry about discarded water, but my warehouse is a flat floor and it left a huge pool of water that went over 10 feet away from the vehicle. Here is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oY-LK7bpQEY
