Just wait until the street bums figure out there is copper in those cables attached to the chargers and no one watching them.

Well, they bought Nassan Leafs, so....... :)


Well, thats what happens with third party charging solutions, so...... :)
I'm putting in a Level 2 charger outlet now. Good selling point for the house, and with any luck I'll use it next year.

Luckily a buddy mine, fully Grateful Dead type, keeps a composting coffee can on his desk, spoke to me about a condo/townhouse he and the wife are buying in Lewes. When I asked if it was coming with a charging solution, he said nope. They were still early enough to add it through the builder, but its costing 3K. Stupid crazy high, since its just a 220/50 outlet IMO, but he is getting it.

That's expensive. I had a 30A outlet and breaker with wiring for 50A for the generator installed for about $500.

The outlet I'm installing now is just an extension of the 30A dryer outlet already in the garage. I checked codes and there is nothing to prohibit multiple outlets on the dryer line. Couple hundred for parts/cable. I considered installing a device called a Dryer Buddy. It's 2 outlets in one smart box. If the dryer is in use, the 2nd jack is disabled. When the dryer is off, the 2nd jack is active.

Same idea as charging 20K for the unfinished bonus space over a garage. You just pay more for want to haves with a builder vs adding after.

Biden Repeatedly Struggles While Delivering Remarks, Elon Musk Torches Him



Biden repeatedly demonized the nation’s highest court during his remarks, calling the ruling “terrible” and “extreme,” and claiming without evidence that the ruling was “not a decision driven by the Constitution.”

During his remarks, Biden repeatedly stammered, struggled to pronounce words, and appeared to read a little too much off the teleprompter, which earned him widespread mockery, including from Elon Musk.

“It is noteworthy that the percentage of women who register to vote and cast a ballot is consistently higher than the percentage of the men who do so — end of quote. Repeat the line,” Biden said. “Women are not without electoral and, or political — let me be precise — not and, or — or political power.”

Musk responded with a meme from the movie “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” starring Will Ferrell.

“Whoever controls the teleprompter is the real President!” Musk wrote.

The meme showed a clip of Ron Burgundy, played by Ferrell, reading off a teleprompter during a newscast, saying: “You stay classy, San Diego. I’m Ron Burgundy?”

Burgundy’s remarks are immediately followed by his boss stating behind the scenes: “Damn it! Who typed a question [mark] on the Teleprompter? For the last time, anything you put on that prompter, Burgundy will read.”






I award 10 demerit points to House Gurps for an off topic post!!!!

:lol:

Not very bright journalists. The range initial was for the truck, unladen, no trailer. Once it determined the actual load and power usage, range was dramatically reduced, something the journalists didn't even consider. No different than an ICE getting 20-22mpg normal, and 10-15 when towing.

But it did expose what most of us already know... gas is not ready to be replaced by electric.
