    PowerShare + Cybertruck to the rescue as home power backup after tornado!

    I rarely get power outages where I live, but I know if I turn down Powershare I'll end up sitting in the dark fuming about my "stupid Cybertruck" lol

    A simpler solution: change the breaker to 30 A for a 5-15 plug will charge faster?

    Short answer: no. Nuanced answer: components of a circuit should all be similarly rated. You likely have a 15A breaker because the wiring, outlets, etc. are all rated for 15A also. Using a larger breaker does nothing but bypass a safety device.

    PowerShare thoughts.... better with Power wall 3.

    What we need is a "mini powerwall" that can power the house for the 30 seconds it takes to switch over to the Cybertruck. How many AA Energizers do you think?

    How do I locate a V4 SuperCharger?

    Put a map on the wall. Throw a dart at the map. There is no V4 there. Kidding aside, there are about 20 V4 sites listed at https://supercharge.info/ The V4 cables are longer, and I can charge at a V3 no problem.

    My Cybertruck only charges 27 miles an hour.

    The Cybertruck onboard PCS is limited to 48A anyway (as are all Teslas for many years now).

    Charge Curve for big 2024.14.3 update

    I've wondered why Tesla doesn't have active cooling on the vehicle side of the connector, like they have on the cable. I'm guessing that the HV battery is the thermal choke point here, and an overheating plug is an abnormal condition from a poor connection.

    Charge Curve for big 2024.14.3 update

    The charge port/connector is water-resistant, but the manual warns against hard sprays of water directed at it. I'd love to have a Supercharging car wash, but that sounds like a lawsuit and/or Darwin award :LOL:

    My Cybertruck only charges 27 miles an hour.

    The UWC is rated for 48A max. https://shop.tesla.com/product/universal-wall-connector The max charge rate should have been set via software by the installer: https://www.tesla.com/support/charging/wall-connector/power-management

    My Cybertruck only charges 27 miles an hour.

    Your mind seems easily boggled. Nobody uses miles for distance, anyway. "How far is it to the airport?" "Oh, about 30 minutes."

    My Cybertruck only charges 27 miles an hour.

    Sounds rite. The Cybertruck uses around 50% more energy per mile than the Tesla sedans, so even at the same wattage it will gain slower miles. Getting 27m from 11kW works out to around 400W/mile.

    Out the Window: More Superchargers locations & V4 for overlanding with Cybertruck - Tesla's Biggest Fumble

    A lack of results is a good reason to replace the management team. But why discard all the trained workers, most of which had no ability to influence strategy?

    Out the Window: More Superchargers locations & V4 for overlanding with Cybertruck - Tesla's Biggest Fumble

    I'm sure that Tesla can get the SuperCharger team back up and running again. No problem. However, regardless of how this plays out, firing the entire team is just bad optics. Many pundits, analysts, and customers have expressed disappointment at what appears to be Tesla's abandonment of the...

    Charge Curve for big 2024.14.3 update

    Well, sort of. The system is calibrated for "typical" conditions. If you only cool the area around the sensor, then it might be fooled. I honestly don't know how many sensors are in the receptacle/plug/cable though. I would also have reservations about adding water to a 600A connection lol...

    Charge Curve for big 2024.14.3 update

    Defeating a safety sensor is rarely a good idea. I just Supercharged from 9% to 100% and the plug temperature hovered around 60°C.

    Charge Curve for big 2024.14.3 update

    I am supercharging with the new firmware right now, and I’m seeing some odd behavior. Starting at a very low SOC, I initially got the full 250 kW, but it would abruptly drop to almost nothing before ramping back up to the full charge speed again. I thought maybe it was temperature based, so I...
