Is this back to the future when the Tesla Wall Connector Gen 1 is reborn as Gen 4 providing 80amp charging for the massive Cybertruck max battery pack of the Tri motor top model?
Like the old WV 80amp will recharge rhe max pack in 10 hours vs 20 with 48amps.

Would be nice if Tesla releases a More Powerful Wall Connector

More Powerful Wall Connector
A next-gen Wall Connector with Cybertruck-style design: Another possibility Zheng mentioned is a new, next-generation Wall Connector featuring a design inspired by the much-anticipated Tesla Cybertruck. This upgraded Connector would have a total power of 21 kW, making it a more powerful option for Tesla owners looking to charge their vehicles.

A more powerful charging solution would likely be aimed at businesses that have access to more power and would like to provide a faster charging solution than the current Wall-Connector-based destination chargers offer. Last year Tesla introduced the ability for businesses to charge for charging through their destination chargers.

I am not expecting it to happen not that many people will have a 100 amp dedicated circuit. CT battery pack will be less than the GM pack probably 150-175kwh

If the original WC works to deliver 80a to the CT I'll probably have to re-wire it as I only put in big enough wire to power 60a/48a delivered. Or perhaps I can do like Tesla and monitor cable temps and derate if they get warm.

As long as I can charge my commute I don’t care.

Have a gen1 80amp charger wired to a 100amp circuit and bought another one on a price dip (not installed) so I can have 2 sharing the same circuit and therefore get max power to CT assuming other car isn't charging/hooked up! Who knows what CT max charging amperage will be but wanted to do more than 48amps if the truck will take it....eg guarantee max range on an overnight charge!

AHHHUUUUM,

Remember last week when I commented on the thread about infrastructure not being ready for EVs. And I said the problem I see is our older homes with only 100amp service?

Yes there are ways to make do, with a 100amp panel. But the future is coming!

Maybe this will be one answer for apartment dwellers. The apartment owner installs a couple of these and has a side income.

I just updated my homes panel to 200 amps. My 100 amp panel is going into the garage to facilitate the fastest charger I can use for my future truck and car

KMB, like you I did 125amp subpanel in my garage off of my 200 amp house main service. Currently I have 2x gen 3s for dual 48amp dedicated charging overnight. Every am we wake up to 2x fully charged Ts. From my signature you can see my future goal is MYP conv to CT and at least the 500 mile range or 150 kw pack. I think the 200 kw top pack for 600 miles will require 20 hours at 48 amps for a full charge therefore extrapolating 16 hours for 150 kw pack for full charge. Sixteen hours is too long to charge any EV let alone a CT. Therefore, the future plan could be buy a Gen 4 (assuming it will be released in the next 9 months) or get a Gen 1 and setup 80 amp charging capability ahead of getting the CT and also power sharing as I will be over the 80% x 125 amp feed necessary. Two Ts, M3RWD 32 amps + CT 80 amps is 112 amps which is greater than 125 X 0.8 or 100 amps. You have to be impressed with the L2 Tesla wall connectors, top engineering of security lockdown for Ts and power sharing, amongst other features.
Happy Motoring

Yeah you and almost everybody else. Vast majority of home L2 chargers are installed on 50A/60A circuits. But frankly, for most users, that will still be perfectly adequate. Should still be able to get from 20% back to 80-90% overnight, and most people don’t even run down the pack that much with regular daily use.

Remember that the Gen II Wall Connector can utilize up to a 100 amp dedicated circuit (80 amp setting) as well, due to it's support for multiple wall connectors daisy-chained together in parallel, or it could also support use of a 90 amp breaker (72 amp setting) for max charging speeds of some earlier Model-X variants.

So I don't see the reintroduction of this capacity being that far-fetched, since they already have it in the Gen II models. I believe they downsized the Gen III model because they knew most people were going to be using it to charge the Model 3 and Model Y, so it was wasteful for the sheer number of units they'd be selling when they could optimize them for those cars while selling them at a cheaper price with slightly thinner cables.

But now that the Cybertruck is just over the horizon, I could see Tesla revisiting a more robust wall connector that supports 80 amps on a 100 amp circuit. At least I hope they do anyway. But if and when they might offer one is still not certain.

We have a pair of Gen II HPWCs on a 100A circuit. It's handy to be able to charge at a full 72A at times. It shouldn't really be necessary in most cases, but there have been times I've forgotten to top up before a trip and was glad I could quickly add an additional 20% to my battery in the last hour or so before heading out.

I'm retired, even needing to go and fuel up every few weeks is exciting. :ROFLMAO:
