Charging

Charge a Tesla Vehicle Using Direct Current

Right now, if you want to use your own solar panels directly, you have to convert DC to AC, plug-in the mobile charger, then convert it back to DC again for the battery.

 

Since solar generates electricity as Direct Current, it would be nice to use the on-board inverter or by-pass the conversion completely and just charge the car using direct current.

 

I think we would need a standardized protocol/pins for using DC.
