I never got a special charger since I work from home. I only get 5 mph on a stage outlet on my Y. Does anyone with an electrical background know if it will still be 5 mph with the Cybertruck?

It has a bigger battery so can hold more juice, but it also weighs more so the miles per kilowatt is probably lower?
The energy coming from the 120 volt outlet will be limited to 12 amps no matter what you charge from it, so the energy output will stay the same.

On the Cybertruck you will get less than 5 miles per hour of charge because it will be less energy efficient than Model Y.

DM me a picture of your main electrical panel. We’ve installed thousands of AC EV chargers.
its unlikely you have the capacity to run both at the same time. If there is a new charger you’ll almost certainly have to remove the original and purchase two new ones and have a 100A circuit wired in. When charging both, you will share 80 amps
Will do thanks!

You can also have a load diverter installed, instead of changing the panel. That makes sure that two things on the same circuit don't run at the same time.
