  1. 12V battery

    Yes.. I've done this many times with my Leaf and another vehicle to "jump start" it when I had a completely dead 12v battery. You only need to supply 12v power to the EV to just boot up the computers and get them to switch on the contactors for the main drive battery. Once that all takes place...
  2. 12V battery

    Wasn't Elon talking about trying to go to a 24 or 48 volt system, but couldn't because they couldn't convince 3rd party suppliers to change their stuff over? I don't understand why they can't run that stuff on a set of buck-down voltage converted circuits at 12v, and then power the Tesla...
  3. Any updates?

    No one's talking about this idea.... The bottom of the truck is smooth. Tesla could create a compartment under the truck for you to slide long items like 12-footer 2x4's.
  4. What would prevent your purchase?

    Not having enough to cover the cost when the time comes to buy one. I pay cash for all my vehicles. Not a single car payment in over 15 years.
  5. Jordan Giesige calls the Cybertruck a 'Sarlacc Pit' for battery production.

    So what? It uses more. What's the point of this? We shouldn't make larger electric vehicles because they use more power than small cars? Jordan can go find himself an old Mitsubishi i-MiEV and leave us to our trucks!
  6. Center console/seat: who got it right?

    You're kidding right? An extra 6th, almost full-sized seat for a family member, or more space to store clutter and crap your wife brings into the vehicle? I'll take the seat. She needs to simplify her life and get rid of crap anyway.
  7. Why I'm Getting The F150 Lightning

    Nope. I'm all in on the stainless steel wedge wagon. Family of 5, so the 6-passenger seating beats the Lightning for me.
  8. Side cameras / mirrors - any NHTSA updates?

    Sounds like a new design in glasses needs to be engineered. Maybe something more high-tech and "active" rather than the passive stuff we've had since the beginning of time.
  9. A More Useful Frunk

    Guess it depends on the size of the house. I have 3 A/C units and a small EV to charge (among the rest of the stuff plugged in at the house). Yesterday in Atlanta heat I managed to use 79kWh. But even at that rate.... if the CT was to have a 200 kWh pack I could still run my house full-tilt...
  10. Cybertruck reservation order number -- how to tell your place in line

    I like to think of it as that as well as time to save up. I'm going to try to pay cash for my CT. Haven't had payments on a car in over 14 years.
  11. Cybertruck Size & Inconsiderate people

    The person's life was saved because you don't carry? You should never be allowed to carry with that sort of mentality.
  12. Cybertruck Stainless Steel Exterior - Wrap or Polish

    Leaving it as is. All that stuff you all want to apply... vinyl coatings and other... it'll peel and chip right off.

    Doesn't bother me at all.. more time to save up and pay cash for this beast. No payments!!
  14. GMC shows off Hummer EV “CrabWalk” feature in real-world conditions

    Dumb. A feature no one needs. Plus it adds complexity which will cost more $$$ if if fails or needs an alignment. I'm not sold on it or the tank feature the Rivian has.
