Nope, not that kind of mph.

Tesla is turning up the juice.

The automaker flicked the switch on its fastest-ever charging station on Wednesday night.

The so-called V3 Supercharger operates at 250 kilowatts -- approximately twice that of the older stations -- and can charge some of its cars at a rate of 75 miles every five minutes, which Tesla is promoting as ď1,000 miles per hour,Ē without explaining the math. (75 x 12 = 900, doesn't it?)
Charging time will be reduced up to 50%.

Software update should be coming in the next few months. Iím already planning a road trip over the summer to check it out. Wife and I wanted to go back to Nashville. Even a 25-30% increase in charge rate on my car would drastically reduce my charge times. I would go from stopping for 15 minutes to like 6-7. Barley enough time to run in for a bathroom break.

I am very excited for things to come. And as usual I will do a post trip report with the new numbers.

I can tell you they are just getting started. They anticipated this kind of stuff and already built the cars to be able to handle higher rates than they even had available at the time. With a simple software update my car will be able to charge at a higher rate over night. Thatís absolutely outstanding.

No one is doing this, and so far I have not seen any other manufacturer discuss this option. They are totally pooping on everyone else right now and itís almost not even funny.

It's not the cars. It's the infrastructure that needs to catch up.

I am wondering if we will start to see more implementation of their energy storage and solar programs to assist. I think they did something to help people in Australia with power and from what I remember itís making money hand over fist while supplying power.

Every problem has a solution and I doubt they havenít thought about this issue.

I'm confused, so can you charge a car from dead to full in 20 minutes now?

Dead to a full 100%? Probably not that quick. You still have to figure it really slows down when you get close to full. But again the superchargers were never designed to 100% charge the cars. You might go from 10%-80% in under 20 minutes, but 80-100 may take another 20 minutes.

If you are sitting there trying to 100 percent charge the car each time you are doing it wrong

they charge on a curve and more rapidly in a larger battery and most rapidly when it is near the bottom. so the 250 in reality is for a short time, although all the charging advancements together make for an improvement at any time along the charge curve. note it uses a little more getting to the charging station, apparently, in warming up the battery in anticipation to be charged.

also it should be understood that it is generally not software itself than can do magical improvements like this - that only happens when it either started out as super crappy, or when it is on special hardware (FPGA chips) or is working with existing hardware in a more clever way (which is this instance).

Rofl people who know absolutely nothing about batteries aside from the fact their iPhone battery isnít as good as new 2 years later are commenting on ďbattery chemistryĒ and how this will totally ruin the battery.

Rofl. The ignorance in this world is strong. Very strong.

I am speaking to the comments in the article FYI not people here.

it depends how hot it gets. so hotter/longer it can, although, that doesn't necessarily mean it will be in a meaningful amount either.

That is what did the OG leaf in. Since it did not have a battery thermal management system. I can tell you the Tesla one is very active, and if the temps get too high to where the car cannot cool it, it will simply lower the charge rate.

To date Iíve never seen this happen, and Iíve supercharged in the middle of summer in Tennessee in 95+ degree heat pulling 98kws. The car does great and couldnt have cared less. It just ran the AC compressor a lot lol

Interesting, it actually uses the AC system and not just fans to keep the batteries cool while charging huh?

Yes it will turn on the compressor. The big screen in the car can actually turn into a diag tool. Again this screen shot is super old like years old, but gives you an idea of the thermal management system.
