Today we are driving up the alps to Grossglockner on the High Alpine Road in Austria, all the way up to a glacier, charging at a Tesla destination charger with glacier view and you will get a front seat look at the battery consumption. Let’s just say that even a Tesla Model 3 Long range really drains the battery, but by how much?

Part 2 of 2: So it is finally time for a weekend road trip, have been over a years since I have been on a proper trip, thanks to uhm the thing that is going around. So this weekend will be spent on driving, charging to get a proper perspective into how traveling in an electric car works. Of course I am blessed to have access to the Tesla supercharger network so that helps. Also will the pandemic put a stop to the whole thing?

I mid June, lockdown had got to me and since the weather was nice, I just drove to Germany to experience something. So I visited the border shop, twice, charged my car for free bought some rum and soft drinks. Had my first supercharger session outside my country, travelled on a ferry and then drove back home. 🙂
Today a little video about something that makes me happy. Charging my electric car for free using solar power. Now all I need is a Tesla power wall but that is not viable or even a good economic solution. Link to solar power status: https://rud.dk/wps/index.php/solar-power/ Link to website: https://rud.dk/
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.

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.
So I got the packages with the EVSE and the floor mats, so let’s se what’s inside. I am unboxing it and opening it up to see if it matches the manual. It was a little while ago I got them but better late than never. 00:00 Intro 01:21 Unboxing floormats 02:31 Unboxing Wall Connector 07:15 Opening up Wall Connector 09:55 Looking inside 10:57 Conclusion #EVSE #EV #ChargingAtHome
