EV-VLOG #9 – Preheating your EV and battery, the actual cost and power consumption

Today I decided to see what the actual cost of heating my Tesla before driving. I have a FLIR camera and a meter on the plug to the car so I can see what actually happens when the battery is frozen. I will be measuring the peak kW draw as well as the total kWh used. it should be interesting to see how many kilowatt hours it uses.

Friday night insomnia stream driving

Driving to car for a few hours and home again because I just wanted to drive for a bit. 🙂 So I stopped at a Tesla Supercharger and got a cup of coffee and decided to try a live stream with our new cell provider, Telia, which haven’t worked great so far, but I guess they are cheap.

what does a supercharging session look like

In this video we take a look at what a supercharging sessions looks like. How fast and how to charge right to minimise waiting time. This is on my secondary channel because I missed some recording because it was one of my first supercharging sessions and I thought the status screen would be on when I left the car.

EV VLOG #6 – New car! Finally driving electric!

Even though the current state of the planet makes it hard to go shopping for a new car, I finally got an EV and I hope I will never have to drive an ICE car again. So this is my first electric car, I don’t ever want to drive an ICE car again. This is too comfortable. 🙂 As you might know, I didn’t expect to buy a @Tesla but they were the only ones who could deliver. The other company went into complete radio silence and didn’t even bother to tell me it was delayed. #tesla #EV #electric #green
