Tesla Supercharger V3

Tesla revealed the V3 supercharger...
https://www.teslarati.com/tesla-supe...-charge-speed/
Quote:
V3 Superchargers will be able to charge twice as fast the current generation Supercharger with a maximum power output of 250 kW or 1,000 miles per hour. Additionally, Tesla owners using V3 Superchargers will no longer need to split power with neighboring vehicles, thereby substantially increasing the charge rate and reducing the overall amount of charging time by nearly half.
It has batteries?
Quote:
V3 is a completely new architecture for Supercharging. A new 1MW power cabinet with a similar design to our utility-scale products supports peak rates of up to 250kW per car.
Getting warmed up...
Quote:
Beginning this week, Tesla is rolling out a new feature called On-Route Battery Warmup. Now, whenever you navigate to a Supercharger station, your vehicle will intelligently heat the battery to ensure you arrive at the optimal temperature to charge, reducing average charge times for owners by 25%.

This combination of higher peak power with V3, dedicated vehicle power allocation across Supercharger sites, and On-Route Battery Warmup enables customers to charge in half the time and Tesla to serve more than twice the number of customers per hour.
and last but not least:
Quote:
Additionally, we are also unlocking 145kW charge rates for our 12,000+ V2 Superchargers over the coming weeks.
So even the 'old' Superchargers get faster...!
