Talked with Supercharger chief engineer tonight at event and definitively confirmed:
1. You can Supercharge as often as you like with NO degradation of battery.
2. TM software manages everything. You just hook up.
3. Charges to 50% at high rate, then tapers. After 80%, it slows more to protect it (but keeps charging)
4. Optimal use is fast (30min) charge from near empty.
The technology and the business model are game changers for EVs.
When you go 1,000 miles on sunlight for free, why would you spend $200 burning gas?
This SuperCharger is a total win.
