Korea (and North America) use the proprietary Tesla connector for AC/DCFast charging - Tesla announced last year, and then delay’d a CCS adapter for Model 3 and Model Y…but now apparently it will ship this month for Korean customers…

this adapter lets Model 3 and Model Y owners use CCS chargers…no technical details on maximum charging limits

it’s only a matter of time until this is released in North America - and then we can have Tesla owners also complaining about how much EA sucks…

next step CCS support at SuperChargers - hmmmmmm - not holding my breath on actual time frame but I believe it’s inevitable - there really is no point in having two separate fast charging standards…it will happen but when is elusive

also Tesla no longer sells it’s $500 Chademo adapter (let’s Teslas use Chademo at 50 kW) - I owned one, it worked and I used it a couple of times in places where there was no supercharger - that was years ago and superchargers continue progress so this is less and less of an issue and Chademo is the dying connector type here…

CCS will win eventually - but at least for North America the connector is horrible and the ergonomics are simple awful.

bit by bit this stuff is coming together - 5 years from now I think it will all be mostly merged and interoperable.

- How much will Tesla charge to use superchargers? (vs. others)
- How many Tesla fan boys will get angry when non-Tesla cars are using "their" network?
- Many superchargers are already very crowded (west coast) they better expand at a rapid rate. Retrofit some gas stations?
