New Tesla Supercharger Design Emerges In Technical Drawings
It might be the new type (V4) of Supercharging post.

Twitter user John Harris released technical drawings of a planned Supercharging station in Danvers, Massachusetts, which includes "Alternative Supercharger Posts." It might be a part of the preparation to switch from V3 to V4.

As reported previously, the V4 Supercharger stalls are expected to look very similar to the Megachargers. They will be taller and narrower than the V3 Supercharger, but not as tall as Megachargers.

One of the main changes is the cable, which is on the outer side of the pedestal rather than inside, like in the V3. It appears to result in a longer length of the cable - important to handle non-Tesla EVs (assuming that the network will be opened to cars with different charging inlet locations).

According to the drawings, the handle of the plug is expected to be at the same height in both V3 and V4 versions (about 48").

The new V4 version is also expected to offer a higher power output than the V3, although there is no official info about that.

I do not see the explosive reactive armour on the cables.
