the amount of projected expertise on this forum astounds me
I wasn't trying to be an expert, my comment was purely for laughs!!! 🤣
Massive effort to break even is tragically funny.

To charge a Tesla with mobile solar, you must use an inverter to make 120V for the Mobile Connector. Going from DC->AC->DC is not the most efficient route.

If Tesla puts any kind of solar charging capability into the Cybertruck, then it should be ready to accept additional external panels efficiently and easily.

Elon was not opposed to integrated solar when asked, but he's not been touting it either. YMMV
So true. Even a low voltage DC charging option would be exciting for me! You could just plug in a trailer with some solar to charge the CT without needing an inverter just for the CT to rectify it again.

I feel like that will be a more used option than some deployable thing.
