    Would i buy one?

    Does it have an internal combustion engine? It doesn't? Then no, I will not buy one.

    Good grief someone actually suggested doing that??

    I know I mentioned that you can tell the car what amperage to charge with. Not sure if it was my post or another that gave you that impression. Anyway, I’ve only found that you can turn down the amperage from the max for your outlet type. So plug in to a 110v and it allows a max of 15 A and you can only choose that or less. I do know with a 110v if you add a longer extension cord then the max amperage is decreased, so it has to have some way to sense that, although I have no clue how to build a circuit to sense that. Ive never used a 220v other then my house’s that has a full 50A available to know if it can sense a 30 A circuit or something.

    On the other hand, maybe there will be an amazing breakthrough in battery technology within the next two years, some time before your Cybertruck is delivered....something that would really make you regret not getting in line early for that (maybe) amazing, ground-breaking electric vehicle with a 1000 mile range on one 15 minute charge. It won't cost you a dime to get in line for that vehicle. Oh...and that new battery technology is so cheap that they'll drop the price that you signed up for down to $28,000....

    No, the Tesla cannot sense what the circuit capacity is. That is based on the charger you're using. The type of charger/adapter is detected and each type has a programmed maximum current. You can use the menu to set a lower current if you want, but you will never be able to set it higher than that charger/adapter's programmed maximum.

    If you're using the portable cord with the included NEMA 5-20 120v adapter, that will be limited to 12 amps (not 15 amps). This is because 12 amps is the maximum you're supposed to load up a circuit that is on a 15 amp breaker. The only way to get 15 amps out 120 volt is if you buy the NEMA 5-20 adapter, which will only allow it to be plugged into an outlet on a 20 amps circuit. It will detect that adapter and allow up to 15 amps.

    If you're using the portable cord with the included NEMA 14-50 240v adapter, that will allow up to 32 amps. It doesn't matter that a NEMA 14-50 outlet is designed for 50 amps and is on 50 amp breaker. That portable cord will now allow any more than that no matter what you hook it up to. If you buy a different adapter, say a NEMA 10-30 240v adapter, it will be detected and limit the current to something less, probably 24 amps.

    If you buy that wall mounted home charger, that thing has a little knob in it to set what the circuit capacity is. When you install it, you need to set that little knob to match the capacity of the circuit you've installed for it, with a maximum of 50 amps. So if you install a 50 amp circuit and breaker, you can set it for full power. If you install a 40 amp circuit, you can reduce it to match. When you plug the car in, the charger will tell the car what it's maximum is, and the car will not be allowed to exceed that. If you have a 50 amp circuit, the car will max out at 40 amps (80% of the circuit capacity).

    I consider myself an "outsider". Or one that likely will never buy an EV. I'm guessing that most of us fall into that category. The thing that is obvious to me is that the EV manufacturers need to work together with uniformity of charging. If they refuse to do this, I cannot imagine these ever becoming anything more than a novelty.
    My two cents, in fact that may be all my opinion is worth!

    And then he could drive around in a truck that my 3 year old designed the body on, lol.

    Aesthetic preferences are highly individualized. It's definitely a unique design by standards of the current curmudgeonly designs that the big automakers have convinced us is preferable. Who knows? Maybe in three two years those automakers will begin copying Tesla designs just as the big PC mfgrs have copied Apple.

    Or maybe today’s designs are what people like and we aren’t all brainwashed? Sorry but to say it is unique is just wanting to be different, just look at it and tell me how hard that was to design? To me they took the lazy route because they couldn’t stamp a shape in the metal. So while he could of changed material to make a more aesthetically pleasuring vehicle, like he has on all his other vehicles, he elected to just use this basic design most 3 year olds can draw and say it’s forward thinking. I get some will think everything he does is genius but everyone plops a turd now and then.

    Yeah, maybe in 32 yrs the big dogs may start copying that truck design.
