also on the supercharger note - you can get blacklisted from using them if you charge on them all the time. that's because the supercharger bypasses the charging regulator boards and dumps directly into the pack at 300A/450v which creates a ton of wear on the battery. want to keep your range high? don't supercharge often.

So, I found this thread thanks to twitter, and I know this is an older post of yours, but as an EE, this scares the ever living gently caress out of me.

Please tell me they had some sort of protection that kept the superchargers from activating accidentally, like say if some kid touched the prongs.

I have no clue. I'm more of an embedded software person, but I also have EE education because they want both that and coding knowledge.

EE as well here, from my understanding, the chargers have the option of AC and DC output at varying levels adjustable on your model and charging needs. Software interlock apparently controls it, so you're not just gonna have kiddies tapping and zapping (I'd hope)

It's DC voltage so not quite as dangerous but lol @ the raw amount of wear and tear that much energy would put on off-the-shelf Li-ON battery assembly

a COTS battery of questionable construction too boot.

the state of EV charging puts VHS vs Betamax vs Blu-Ray vs HD-DVD to shame

Blu-Ray vs HD-DVD was no-contest. Sony beat everyone to the punch by making PS3s Blu-Ray players.

The problem is Tesla thinks its Apple when it comes to this poo poo. It can get away with using different charging methods because it's ~special~

thereís no way that it doesnít throttle charge current until the battery is above 0C or so to avoid permanently damaging the cells

It's already damaging the cells anyway so why bother in the first place?

In other words, I wouldn't be surprised at all if this is the case.
