Power just went out on my block. My car was set to start charging at 4:30am in prep for my morning.
I unplugged the car right away as I was concerned about a power surge once power was restored by the utility.
Had enough charge for tomorrow either way.
My question... does the power cable have built in power surge protection and or does the model S?
Better safe than sorry I just unplugged the car. Power is now back on so I plugged it back in.
Guess its good to keep the car charged for emergency type situations.
