Tesla Model 3 Long Range supercharging completely from 0 to 100%. Full session time lapse. Warm battery. Did not have to share supercharger with other vehicles.

In most cases it is not recommended/worth the time to supercharge to 100% especially since the charge rate slows considerably as the battery reaches 100%, but wanted to show the charge rates over time.

The supercharger briefly stopped and restarted for a few seconds at around 66% state of charge. Also some have mentioned other vehicles going beyond full charge rate past 50%

50 kW CSS Charging Tesla Model 3 Performance in Norway



People have reported problems charing the Tesla Model 3 on different CSS chargers lately.

I did a quick tour on five of my local chargers and had no problems with handshake or charging speed. Maybe I was lucky?

All chargers are 50kW and I got 44-47kW charing speed.

People also complain about poor Supercharging speeds, but I’m pretty sure it’s all about battery heat and state of charge. On my last visit to a SuC my car charged at 117kW with 45% SoC (765 km/hr!)

12kw Inverter and Tesla Battery Module Off Grid Hook Up test!



This video is about my 12kw (12000w) inverter. It’s an unboxing, hook up and power up using a 63v Tesla battery module from the Smart Fortwo car. I will be showing you in detail the inverter and the parts I’m using for this very quick power up and testing to make sure the 12kw inverter is working on DC power. This is my OWN brand of inverters that I will be carrying and selling over at WesThatTechGuy.com. This is a 12000 watt 36000 watt, 20 second surge and setup for 48v+ battery bank. This combination is great for an Off Grid or an AC tied system. This is not a grid tie inverter but can be connected to any house AC electrical to charge the battery bank. You can run on battery priority mode or AC priority mode.

Generator Charging a Tesla? Generac VS Honda



Generator Charging a Tesla? Generac VS Honda
========================
For details on this Generac iQ2000 Generator, or to purchase at the lowest possible price, please see short link: https://amzn.to/2GYIBoo

For details on this Honda EU2000i Generator, or to purchase at the lowest possible price, please see short link: https://amzn.to/2E6YkyU

Generac VS Hona charging the Tesla Model S. This test showed a Quicker Winner then I had thought. Straight out of the box, the Generac iQ2000 works to charge the Model S. However, the non-bonded neutral ground on the Honda, immediately trips the Ground fault on the Tesla’s UMC. The use of a Dangerous “hack plug” may may work, but that is for another video 😉

While not ideal, the use of a generator in a emergency situation to gain enough range to get to a grid connection, or use of a generator to keep vehicle powered when traveling off-grid, the generac seems to be the ideal generator. The yield is ~12-18 miles gained per gallon of fuel, dependent on the charging conditions (Ambient temperature, humidity, and how well the generator has been broken in).
While no where near as efficient as a grid connection, its about on par with a similar sized luxury Sedan.

CHEAPEST Way to Charge Tesla Model 3?



Want more? check out my latest video! “What Tesla Can Learn from Facebook”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hq0HaPht0m8 –~–
Charging a Tesla Model 3 won’t be free, but it doesn’t have to be expensive either. Let’s explore some options to see which is the cheapest. Don’t miss these updates, subscribe at https://teslanomics.co/join

// First Charging Option – Your House

If you can’t install a charger this won’t apply. In my research I found that my local electricity provider offers special discounted rates for EV owners. Make sure to check with your local power company about this as well.

My rate during Super Off-Peak time = $0.22

// Second Charging Option – Public Networks

Public networks like Chargepoint, EVGo, and Blink offer various rates depending on the area. Check out plugshare.com for info on options near you.

Another interesting option in this space is EV Match which pairs hosts with chargers with drivers. The economics don’t always work but the convenience may overrule a few cents per kWh.

Check out https://www.evmatch.com/ for options near you

My rate for public networks were between $0.25 – $0.60

// Third Charging Option – Tesla Superchargers

Assuming there is a Tesla Supercharger near you this could very well be your best option. It’s going to be the fastest for sure, and in many states/countries they offer a competitive price.

Check out my video and map with these details – https://teslanomics.co/tesla-supercharger-costs-visualized-no-more-free-lunch-but-how-much-will-it-really-cost/

My Tesla Supercharger Rate $0.20

// Fourth Charging Option – Free Networks

As you may have guessed these choices aren’t super reliable because of how popular they are. The network I’ve seen in SoCal is called Volta and while you charge they display an advertisement.

// Fifth Charging Option – Home with Solar

The cheapest option I found in my analysis was using solar panels on my house. If you’re looking to get Solar the site I used to help decide is https://teslanomics.co/energysage

On EnergySage they let installers bid on your project and give you a beautiful dashboard breaking it all down.

Check out my video breakdown on this here – https://teslanomics.co/how-to-solar-getting-quotes-without-annoying-sales-calls-sustainable-family-plan-ep-1/

My Rate with Solar $0.09

Let me know what your options look like and which you found to be the best in the comments!

Will Your Tesla Model 3 SURVIVE on ONLY Regular Wall Outlet?



Check out my latest video “Tesla Winter Driving Secrets!”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmnFZCFV5bI –~–
I did a test to see if I could go 7 days using a regular wall outlet to charge my Tesla Model 3. Get these updates direct to your inbox at https://teslanomics.co/join

I get this question often – Do I need a high-power wall charger or outlet for my Tesla. Usually, my answer is yes, however since some of you might not be able to install one of these options, I thought I would see what it’s like to go 7 full days without using just a regular 120v wall outlet.

Tesla supplies an adapter for the wall outlet so you don’t need anything extra to make this possible besides an extension cord if the outlet is far from your parking spot.

Side note – I actually did this in Hawaii recently where I ran a 50-foot extension cord from our hotel room to our car across a garden area to charge our Kia Soul EV at night. It worked surprisingly well!

In my situation, I drive a short distance each day to and from work (about 10 miles each way) so the first few days of driving went well. Each morning, using a regular wall outlet, I had a full charge. Then the weekend came…

On the weekend I tend to do a bit more driving with my family so on Saturday I had used over 60 miles of range. At around 3 miles of added range using a regular outlet, it took almost 20 hours of charging the following day to get me back to full. 

So if you drove nearly 60 miles each day, this would quickly become unsustainable.

It doesn’t mean however that you need to install something at home. In my test, I came across several convenient public charging options, some free some not, that I chose not to use. If this were my regular situation I would absolutely have used them and not encountered such any of these issues.

So here is my recommendation

If you CAN install a wall charger or NEMA 14-50 outlet, do it.

If you CANNOT install one of these, use a wall outlet overnight, and supplement with public charging options. There are probably more than you think, here are a few places to check:

 – Plug Share (https://www.plugshare.com/)

 – EV Match (https://www.evmatch.com/)

Last but not least, the Tesla Supercharger network generally offers the fastest and cheapest (next to your home) charging. Depending on where you live this could also be a great option as you’ll save both time and money, plus it’s kinda cool 🙂
