Tesla was recently spotted deploying their first Megacharger for the upcoming Tesla Semi at its Gigafactory Nevada. The purpose of the Megacharger is to supply one megawatt of power, while taking advantage of low electricity rates. As can be seen, each stall is much longer than a typical supercharger, likely to accommodate long trucks with trailers. With the Semi delayed until next year, we likely will not see the Megacharger open to the public any time soon, but it will be cool to see it when it does, and hopefully we will get some Megachargers installed in the Northeast to support electric trucking.
Tesla has just released a new mobile app update (v4.2) that adds iOS widgets, and some new Powerwall features. More interestingly, the update hints that Tesla is progressing towards giving owners a live view of their car’s cameras as has been heavily requested. Here are the official release notes for the update:
This tweet from Teslascope shows that the user interface for the live Sentry Mode viewer is already in the app, just not activated yet. Hopefully this long awaited feature is released soon, and owners can add one extra level of safety to what already are the safest cars ever produced.
If you’re one of the many people who need a break from stress that’s starting to weigh you down, you’re not alone. According to the American Institute of Stress, 80% of U.S. workers suffer from work-related stress. So don’t let the decision to take a vacation if money is tight add even more anxiety. When you want to take a vacation without venturing far, you have to get creative. This doesn’t mean you have to give up fun family outings, enjoyable dinners, or seeing new sights, and you don’t have to stray too far away to make it happen.
