In looking at Tesla's map of destination chargers, I see many 2-station locations sporting "up to 18kW" designations. I presume that many of these sites were outfit with destination chargers specifically for Cybertruck testing. To my thinking, this indicates the Cybertruck's onboard charger will likely support 72-80kW charging, much like the 2018 and earlier S and X. (y)

They were originally installed for the original S, I think.

Those kinds of sites (and 11kW pairs) are really popular with Zero riders as it's possible to rig up full AC charging on the biggest battery Zeros and travel as fast as an Energica.

Yeah, the older "High powered wall connector" goes up to 80amps, that was to support the dual chargers in the model S.

I'm still hoping the truck makes use of the 80amps, I have one.

I'm still hoping it will support the megawatt charging. Also, given it is supposed to do bidirectional DC power, upgrading to fancy DC charger/inverter setup for home power backup starts to make good sense.

I was supposed to get my Tesla Solar and PW installation this week. However, I put it off.

1. We are moving into the lower energy usage/production part of the year.
2. PW3 won’t be available until after Jan 1 for me. (Can’t mix PW2+ and 3)
3. I need to know what will provide the best charging option for the CT. They are dropping a new circuit for me to install a charger. Do I need 50A, 60A, 80A, 100A? Don’t know yet. Is Tesla going to announce a new charger with the CT? Don’t know.

So rather than install today and fix tomorrow, waiting a couple months is no big deal.

Well, we know it uses the NACS plug, and it's unlikely to charge at a rate slower than the existing cars (60a breaker).

I just opted for the 100A, still waiting for Tesla solar to become available in the area though.
