Ok, so we know the folks at Tesla are smart so how long to you think it will take them to come up with customer Superchargers?
The Tesla built Superchargers are built using 10 of the 10kw on board chargers so we know they can be stacked.
Supercharger high current connection is available and the cars have been designed to deal with the thermal loads associated with 1C charging (most of the capacity in an hour).
Thinking hard disk slots or CPU module slots in a typical server, how long do you think it will be before there is a rack system that allows you to plumb 220V 400 amp (or three phase at a lower amperage) service to your rack and populate it with chargers to get the recharge speed you want?
Anyone at Tesla want to chime in here?
