Charging

Restricted Supercharging

It would be nice to restrict supercharging for people who are within a certain distance from home, and have enough charge to get home.

I have run into quite a few people who use Superchargers instead of charging at home. I understand that in some cases Supercharging may be necessary, such as for people who live in a condo type building and have no way to install a charger. Having said that, there are plenty of people... more »

Convenience

Open charging port when parked in garage

I plug my MS to the charger every time I park in my garage. I'd like the car to automatically open the charging port whenever it detect that I'm leaving the car while parked in the garage.

Not only would it save me the step to open the port manually, but the sound the port makes when it open would serve as a reminder for me not to forget to plug the charger.

Charging

Germans want in

I've an issue with the German transport minister wanting Tesla to open up its charging network to competing EV manufacturers. All that will do is shift the buying publics focus from buying a Tesla because it has a superior product and charging infrastructure. 

If this happened and you pull up to your supercharger in your Tesla, only to find them all occupied by Audi's etc.

Emergency Charger Eject / Disconnect

On screen charge port unlock button which:
1) Automatically unlocks charge port to leave a situation while charging without exiting the vehicle in an emergency.
2) Automatically save cams clip

Mobile App

Modify the Charging Ratio from the App Implemented

Modify the charging Amperage from the App, you can only turn on and off the charging of the car, but you can not select the input Amperage for the charging ratio.

This is useful because sometimes you forget you charged very slow the last time and while trying to change it from the app its not yet possible.

Mobile App

TESLA BATTERY APP

The current Tesla Battery App allows you to set the peak, off peak, and super off peak times by choosing one peak time and one super off peak time. This works fine, except that in some cases we have MORE than one super off peak time and so this cannot be programmed in.

I propose that we include the option to include a second PEAK and second super OFF PEAK time so that this can be properly allocated for.

In San Diego... more »

Add open charge port button to widget

When using the widget on my iPhone, I would like to have a button to open the charge port. No I have to either open the app or get into my car and do it via the screen.

 

I have seen reports on the Internet that placing your phone against the charge port also has to open the charge port, but this somehow doesn't work for me unfortunately.

Make my house/business available as Tesla Charging Station

I have my roofs all covered with Tesla solar panels and I have plenty of power that I'd like to make money by selling my power to other electric car owners in the neighborhood where my house and/or business. 

I have a control on my app to turn the availability on and off for my units like operators/owners do for Uber or Lyft or airbnb.

Charging

Cybertruck camping

I'd love to see a power-sharing adapter/splitter that maximizes use of the 230 volt (level 2) shore power available at campsites. Provide a smart splitter that prioritizes providing power to the fluctuating needs of the camper, then directs the remaining available amperage to charge the CyberTruck. Similar to how dual headed Clipper Creek chargers or pairs of Superchargers ration the available power to competing variable... more »
