I'm getting two. This should give me six hours backup power.
Its a bargain, especially with incentives.
Thanks for brining up the LiFePO4, every chemistry has tradeoffs, but the li-ion is not the best in several areas. Wikipedia has decent page on rechargeable batteries. Wondering if compressed air storage might not take off in next few years, could be more efficient than current battery solutions.
Storage industry is crazy, there are a lot of large established players and I really wish Elon would stick to EV's.
That's right. It delays our saving the planet.
All men who seek to save the planet are ridiculed.
Whiner, he couldnt have lost more than $15 to 20k, car is still almost new. Trade it in and get the D and move on with life. Or buy the R8 EV, we dont need whiney Tesla owners.
Does supercharging, almost exclusively, as opposed to slower charging at home, etc affect the long term viability of batteries?
When asked the question, Tesla simply stated that it doesnt affect warranty. But if you were planning on keeping a car long term, would you limit supercharging to when you needed it on trips?
I know EV batteries degrade with time and lose capacity, I'm just curious how much charging quickly affects batteries over the years?
Check insideevs for what Audi is up to with EV's.
R8, Q7, Avant, A4, etc. Sounds like they are serious wannabe Tesla competitors, not that anyone can match Tesla.
VW is probably the biggest concern in regards to Gen3 competition.
Maybe, but there is already competition well established in that arena,
I think Tesla should stick with EV cars.
There may someday be other EV's, but none that will be able to compete with Tesla.
Hell yeah. I dont worry about the two dozen other EV manufacturers, or the unsold cars. Tesla has a great car and Musk.
