Nerfed Supercharge speed

edited November -1 in Model X
I own a 2019 Tesla Model X75D and every time I charge at different Superchargers I only get 87-93 kW. Not supposed to get the max at 118 kW?

    I think the current max supercharger speed on the 75D is around 96kWh

    What's your state of charge (SoC) when you begin to charge?
    Should be lower than 40%

    What's the temperature outside?
    Above 60 F is preferred.

    Make sure nobody is parked next to you
    SuCh stations are marked (1A / 1B, 2A / 2B, etc.)

    If everything above matches, then see a service center.

    @kiaui - a bit more complex. Likely worth reading: for understanding how charging works. The numbers you get are normal.

    Interesting. TT where did you see that the 2020 Roadster will be able to charge at 250kW?

    @inconel - As noted, it is a guess. Tesla has not stated what the limits are. Since Tesla stated the Roadster can go over 600 miles, about double an S100, a good guess is the battery pack is double the size and could easily handle 250 kW charging. Then again, the new battery formulation used in the Model 3 can already handle 250 kW charging. It seems likely the Roadster 2020 would use the Model 3 style batteries. With Model 3 batteries, I may be too conservative and it may be possible to double this or more (if a 500 kW charger existed).

    Roadster & Semi truck have their own plugs & stations - also believe Roadster will have an adapter to use a "regular" low-life Super Charger like the rest of us poor folk
