  1. Supercharger Question

    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    Noob question here about my pending Model 3. It has a CCS port, but the top part of the CCS port is the Type 2 / Tesla part. Given that Model S's etc have only this part, does this mean that the Model 3 can use either charge cable at the Tesla Superchargers? And if not, why not? Many thanks

    Tesla Model S
    I happened to stop at the Winchester Supercharger at the local Sainsbury - it got me thinking - so when I got back I wrote to all my local supermarkets and the nearby Lakeside shopping centre in Thurrock to ask them about their EV charging plans - you might all care to do the same to put some...

  13. Model 3 Super charging???

    Tesla Model 3
    We all know the model 3 will be "super Charging Capable" which I guess will either be a upfront cost or a pay as you go service as Tesla could bill you direct. My question Is, if you don't opt for Super charging Does this mean you wont be able to use a chademo adapter? does it shut off the...
  14. Charging at South Mimms? May as well drink a bottle of Pimms!

    General Charging Discussion
    Curious goings on here tonight. First Supercharging attempt - power for around a minute then a fail. Moved car to second Supercharger. All good for maybe 10 minutes then it failed. Dashed outside to stop, then re initiate and it failed more quickly the next time. Maybe two minutes. In and out...
  15. Supercharger authentication

    Tesla Model S
    Small question for the Teslarati on this forum: how does a supercharger know that a Model S is allowed to use the charging facilities? Does the car send some instructions over the cable when connected, or do you have to wave an RFID card?
