    Show me again how to plug something in to the wall...? Haha just teasin'. I'm guessing the reason you have to be careful on the 14-50 plug because you can get zapped if you touch the metal while it's going in? Or are there other concerns if you don't push it in just like you showed?

    Lol , these governmentally subsidized toys are a trojan horse. Where do you think the tax base lost from natural resource petroleum will be made up? Yep , you guessed it ,the publics electric bills . And more taxes if you own an electric . These toys are not visble without taxpayers making it possible for all you to buy them. The savings is very short term , the long term maintenance will break you , dont worry , you can always sell it......well for a pretty heafty loss since a buyer won't be able to afford to fix it The video numbers here are good..... in optimal conditions , however the midwest winters make these toys nonsensical to use on any regular basis . Practically speaking , people are terrible with maintaining their cars , depend on refuling in a minute , running on a quarter tank , etc . No way the population will take all the extra time needed to simply drive , not to mention when the subsidies go away , and the extra electric taxes , your pretty much screwed . Cool gadgetry to be sure , practical? nowhere near close .

    Charging an EV using a power grid that uses traditional power. Why not use solar and tesla home batteries to store power.

    No thanks. I am going to hang on to my internal combustion engine for a little longer. I don't think I want to go to the trouble of hiring an electrician to start changing the wiring in my house. EV technogy is still evolving, who knows there could be better charging system in the future? In general, EV owners who care or can afford to install a dedicated charger at their house are home owners. Renters/apartment dwellers are out of luck. These last group have to find ways to charge their EV, like going to public charging station and having to wait in line if the stations are being used. Also, charging EV takes time unlike pumping gas. Which brings me to the point, if the only reason you are driving an EV (not to look cool because other people are doing it) is you are concern with pollution and our environment then a fuel cell car is a better solution. Fuel cell cars are basically EV that uses hydrogen to generate electricity to drive the car. It has zero emission and the by product is water. Charging hydrogen fuel cell car takes minutes vs charging EV batteries that takes hours. The problem with hydrogen is that it requires electrical energy to produce hydrogen through hydrolysis. If the energy is from renewal energy then zero carbon footprint. But, on the other hand, fossil fuels are used than hydrogen fuel cell cars are no different from EV.

For folks who live in non urban areas or have range anxiety with lower battery capacity EVs than Tesla for example, have you ever tried charging your car in a pinch with a large portable power bank?

    If it’s a Tesla it has a 72kwh battery which is quite large. If you have any frequency stable source of AC 120-250 vac can charge an EV. If the capacity of the charging source is smaller than the car, the car will stuck it dry. To get 4-5 miles per hour you will need at least 120vac at 12amps

    The Tesla mobile app also lets you monitor the state of your Tesla’s charge and adjust the percentage you want your battery charged. I generally set mine to 70% or less. Good not to drop the percent charge below about 20%. You can also stop charging via the mobile app and open/unlock the charge port. The app also shows the availability of stalls at Supercharger stations in your area, such 7/10, meaning 7 of 10 stalls are available, this is updated in real time. The stalls available also show on your Tesla’s screen as you are driving. There is no range anxiety when you drive a Tesla, just pay attention so you know the state of charge, and where the SC stations are, kinda like watching your gas gauge.

    Great video Dave! Just got my Y two weeks ago and waiting for he electrician to install my Nema 14-50. Question the electrician is costing me like 500 but could I not just buy the Tesla charger at 500 and plug it into a regular 110 plug and get higher juicing. Or do I have t get the Nema 14-50 installed first and then add the super charger. Also my daughter has a Chevy Volt can she use an adapter and charge off the Tesla charger if I purchase one, like using a adapter from Chevy. Funny story, I charged last night at a Super Charger station to 80 percent and the car said 12.70 cents. When I got home the charge was a 127 dollars on my credit card. Somehow the decimal was not put on. Don't know who to contact about this but will dispute the charges! Again thanks for the video it was very helpful!

    Correct. As a rule don’t waste your time charging to 100% as it takes as much time as a charge from 0-80% as does from 80-100%. The car will exceed 90% if it needs the range to get to the next charging stop

    Without doing the math, it would take a tremendous amount of panels to charge it for sufficient range in about 12 hours, to get to work unless your work place is very close to you. One would really need the 220V to be able to charge it quicker. Who knows when you will need to drive somewhere on the spur of the moment. Or, you can have two cars, a conventional one and an EV. In an emergency you can use the gas car and leave the EV on the solar charger for two months to charge if you can work from home :-)

    Dave, I really like your video mostly because you speak clearly and slowly. I have a couple suggestions that I would like you to incorporate into a "reshoot". People are sensitive to the "meaning of words" which applies here. This Mobile charger is indeed something that can be used "on the go." Yes it can be used at home but also when you go on a trip and stay at a motel or at a friend's house. State that in your presentation. You make the charging at 120 v sound very complicated and high tech. Its very simple, right? The receptacle is just a normal receptacle in the garage, right ?. So, start by approaching a receptacle that has lets say has a light fixture plugged into it. Remove the light's plug and insert the plug for the mobile charger. For the 240V situation, you very casually mention a dryer receptacle., which it is, right ?. So ,emphasize it. Again, go to the laundry of your house or at the friend's house you're visiting and PLUG IN. Take the time to mention that you'll have to calm down your host that you won't burn down his house by setting the charger 20% lower that his circuit breaker. Note, its gotta be a special host though but give him 10 or 20 bucks to compensate for the electricity. I hope you take these suggestions in a positive manner and I'd really like to see a retake. Thanks, Bill
