Vegas V3 Tesla Supercharger ISN'T Worth the Time.

    Very funny super expensive Tesla Model X charges slower than a much cheaper Model 3 and people wonder why sales on the Model S and X are falling when a Model 3 can charge 2x faster. That is a huge fail on Tesla not to update the batteries on the Model S and X as not only does the Model 3 charge faster it seems the batteries are safer!

      You're comment is absurd. Build it yourself.

      its not the cells its the crippled cooling system.
      1. when the recent update occured you could literally just hear the cooling pump being ran harder to get that 15% or w/e increase.
      2. the new RAVEN s/x can hit 200kw now with same battery pack, likely just a change to cooling system

      3. the smaller cells are BETTER for energyoutput/input as theres more surface area for cooling

      tldr. its just an old pack, not the cells that are the issue and tesla is being cheap.
      boom out of the blue the new raven can hit 200kw with apparently few changes that they havent even discussed

      any moderate overahaul of the pack could get it up to 300kw easily
      people dont really care about saving a few minutes the few times they take their 80k+ car on a roadtrip
      if they did theyd just fly

      but still.
      kinda silly on teslas part

      old 60D used to hit 120kw so not remotely surprising new 100Ds hitting 200kw

      @Janine Westlund Maxwell batteries are vaporware, like all the other so called battery breakthroughs they never quite get past the controlled lab testing.

      Maybe it's because I live in Las Vegas and I know how to get around, but watching this made me frustrated. LOL Here's a tip for future visitors to the V3 charging station in Vegas. When you're driving East on Flamingo from the 15 freeway, go past the Strip, then turn left on Linq Ln (near the monorail tracks that go across Flamingo). The charging station will be on your left, just past the first stop sign. Side note, it was hard for him to find it because he turned on his GPS while right near the High Roller and they are doing a ton of construction there. So, if you read this when the construction is done, the GPS will be correct. :-) Also, I would argue that one "other" Supercharge stations he mentions aren't necessarily better, as one is at Town Square (great if you're going shopping there) and the other is in Downtown (great if you're hanging out Downtown). But, if you're hanging at the Strip, then going to the one by the High Roller your best bet. You can easily walk to Caesars, Bally's, Bellagio, Flamingo, Venetian, The LINQ, Harrahs, The Mirage, and Venetian/Palazzo. Hopefully, this comment helps.

                          This is BS. Owning an expensive X or S and not be able to use Version 3 super charging. I would be pissed.

                                      Does this mean that you'll be getting a newer X 100D? Possibly the one DAErik just sold?

                                        You’re the one who didn’t do your research, to verify it wouldn’t be faster for older cars. Don’t blame Tesla. BTW, please stop mentioning your birthday. It’s a blatant attempt to get attention and possibly gifts. I usually like your videos. This time, not so much.

I road trip all the time for work too, so this is a major downer for me. I don't feel like its the right time to upgrade either. I think they are going to re-engineer the Model S battery with 2170s eventually and upgrade the cooling to take 250kW charge. The current "Raven" model is a half step in the right direction. Maybe I'll try a Model 3LR for a while...
