$35K Tesla Model 3 is HERE! (sorta) Is It worth It? [Live]

(laid-back jazz-funk music) – Hello, and welcome, everyone, to Teslanomics Live I’m your host, Ben Sullins, and this is the show where we break down the latest Tesla news from the week that is past We do it live because, as you know, things move quickly, and fastly, and all the other kind of ways to describe speed, in the world of Tesla and Elon Musk Now, today is a special episode We have some really exciting news, that was dropped mid-week last week, we’re gonna get into, and we’re gonna look at all that data If you’re new here, this will run about an hour long, but I also have a highlights channel you can go check out if you just want the snippets, the different stories, and at the end of the show we’ll do our Q and A, which I host on Crowdcast, which is by invite only If you wanna get one of those invites, it’s free You just head over to teslanomics.co/join, get on our email list, and I’ll send you the invite a few hours before the show begins, so you can join there, ask the questions, kind of chat with other folks, and just be a part of this community Hope to see you there in the future Now, the first thing I wanna talk about is today’s sponsor, which is Climate XChange Climate XChange was founded in 2013 by a group of concerned citizens frustrated by the lack of progress in the fight against climate change They were seeking an effective and viable policy solution to reduce carbon emissions

They have since grown their organization, and hit some important milestones, from passing their carbon pricing bill through the Massachusetts Senate unanimously, to expanding their efforts to other states across the country, and launching a podcast to boot In order to further their mission, and to raise funds for their organizations, they are raffling off three Teslas on New Year’s Day They strive to move us forward to a low-carbon economy while fostering innovation, growth, and healthy communities They have done this through advocating for carbon pricing mechanisms at the state level, and this is the third raffle they are conducting to fundraise To honor that, they’re giving away, or raffling off, three Teslas Now, pretty cool You can learn more about them at teslanomics.co/climatexchange Also, there’s a link in the description, and you can see right here, it’s pretty awesome In January 1st, 2019, they have the grand prize, which you can get any one of the Tesla models, X, S, or the Performance Model 3, or you can get a cash-only prize, it looks like, as well Second prize is a Model 3, any of the different options there are the all-wheel-drive, long-range battery, premium interior, and then you pay the taxes, which is pretty awesome, and then third prize is a regular Model 3, the rear-wheel-drive, and then it’s a standard battery, but we’ll see as to when that comes out, but anyways, you can enter right there at the link, teslanomics.co/climatexchange, purchase a ticket, and you have, actually, a pretty decent chance at winning a Tesla Not a bad choice Not a bad way to start off your new year, and to support an organization that is really trying to help us move towards that low-carbon future that we all know we need to be headed towards Thank you guys for sponsoring this show, and I hope you guys win All right, so first, I wanna talk about the big news that came out last week, and that is that Tesla now has a lower-cost Model 3, a mid-range Tesla Model 3, and a super-simple order page according to Elon here This came out, and they launched it, and it’s starting out at $45,000, but after federal and state incentives in many states, or not many states, but several states, California being one of them, this comes down the $35,000 That’s where they’re kind of advertising this $35,000 price Then, they throw in gas savings as well, and they estimate that based on some averages, and of course it won’t be this exact number, but they’re putting this at $30,000 for a new Tesla Model 3 Now, this one, instead of having the 310 miles of range, has 260 miles of range, which is still pretty good It’s a lot more than my 2013 Model S The top speed isn’t so great It’s 125, but I mean, are you really gonna be using that? And the zero to 60, 5.6 seconds, yeah, it’s maybe a little bit slower, but honestly, you’re never gonna really notice that difference, I don’t think I mean, my long-range Model 3 is plenty quick, and I think it’s just maybe a couple tenths of a second faster than this It’s one of those things where I think this is a great option for a lot of people, and considering the tax credit is running out at the end of this year, they won’t be offering the actual standard model, the $35,000 starting-price one This is the $45,000 starting price That won’t happen until next year Tesla’s said that, and so this is gonna be your best bet to actually get that If you think about it, you’re getting a much better deal, because you’re getting more car for your dollar there, and Elektrek apparently has confirmed that this does use the same battery architecture as the long-range, with just fewer cells, and so this isn’t a software-limited version, like we’ve seen Tesla do in the past This is an actual, fewer cells in it, which makes sense, because at that point, you would be wasting a ton of money, essentially, by putting them in there, considering not everybody is going to be doing that upgrade later on down the road So, along with this, they also stopped selling the full self-driving option Elon said it was causing too much confusion This also lends to the narrative that a lot of people have talked about, that actual full self-driving due to technical and regulatory reasons, are way down the road, many, many years I’m putting it at 10 years or more I’ve heard other people talk about 15 years out before we truly see self-driving Other people maybe are more ambitious, think within a year or two, but honestly, it’s something that is causing a lot of confusion, and I believe Tesla’s actually been sued for this in the past That’s kind of what’s going on here We have a new version of the Model 3, that is cheaper If you have the state rebates, the net price will be around $35,000 Pretty good deal, but I thought we could also kind of look at the data, because guess what? That’s what we do on this channel

I pulled together some numbers, did a little bit of analysis that we can dive into now The first bit is the price per mile I wanted to highlight this, just because one way, a good way, I think, to think about these things is, how many dollars are you paying per mile of range? You can see that the long-range is actually the best option when it comes to how much you’re paying Now, we’ll get into some other details, maybe why that doesn’t work for everyone, but someone did point out on Twitter that maybe, with a bar chart, it makes sense to have the best one be the biggest bar It doesn’t always make sense that way, but I reformatted this, essentially, to give you the miles per dollar instead of price per mile, so kind of the reverse of that other one, and you can see the long-range is actually 12% better than the standard range, and then the mid-range is 3% better than the standard range Both of these options are gonna be a better value, in terms of the range you get for your money, but of course, me, I’ve always been an advocate, and always said that you should go for the longest range possible I would forego the premium interior over a longer battery, because any time you need to go on a longer trip, that can make a very substantial difference to you, especially if you have kids, like I do The other thing I wanted to look at was the actual price here, and so I just kind of pulled together, these are your current pricing options for the Model 3 There is the rear-wheel-drive mid-range at the bottom there, at 45,000, the all-wheel-drive long-range at the top, at 54, and the Performance at 64,000, and so, in fact, let me just rearrange these for you here real time Look at this Okay, there you go You got from cheapest to most expensive The cost after the rebate, for people in California, and New York, and a few other states, comes down to about $10,000, so you’re looking at 35, 44, and 54 Still not a very wildly expensive car If you wanted to buy a very top-of-the-line Model S, you’re looking at 90, 100, $150,000, so these are very reasonably priced in comparison for someone that’s maybe used to buying a Honda Civic or something like that, maybe $25,000 is like a high-end one This is gonna be more expensive than what you’re used to, but if you factor in savings, and these are Tesla numbers I didn’t calculate these savings numbers I’m using the actual numbers that they have on their website You can see that the prices are even lower Overall, I think, for what you get, these are exceptionally valuable, or the value you get is exceptional Then, the big thing, and I’ll just show you another chart I put together here for it, was how much it costs you per month, and again, I’m using Tesla’s numbers here from their website with the loan terms that they recommend I didn’t just make this up You can see that the all-wheel-drive Performance at $938 a month, a lot of money for most folks The long-range, at 782, still expensive, and even the mid-range, you’re coming in at $642 a month Now, if you’re used to a BMW or a Mercedes, kind of on the lower end, like a 3 Series, or a, what is it, a C-Class, I think, those prices are probably in line with what you’re used to, and so I think if you were to compare those, you’re getting a whole heck of a lot of car for your dollar, but for a lot of people, I think even these options being the most affordable ones, that monthly price is gonna be pretty high It’s one of those things that, I think, when it comes to how you and your family think about your finances and all that stuff, you really should weigh all your options I do think that Teslas are worth the money, and in the long run you’re gonna save a ton on maintenance, and fuel, and all these other things, and of course I’ve done countless videos on this channel about just that I think if you’re going this route, if you know you want an electric car, these are very valuable cars, but if you’re stretching your personal budget way beyond what’s probably reasonable, I would say wait There are gonna be much cheaper, and even just as good electric cars coming out in the near future Something to consider I’m curious what you guys think Do you wish you got the mid-range? Are you gonna order the mid-range now instead of waiting for the even cheaper option, the standard range in the future? Let me know in a comment down below I really am curious, because this was pretty unexpected, and we’re still kind of, me and a few friends are shaking our heads as to where this came from, and what the motivation was behind it, but in any event, hopefully, this means that more people can take advantage of that tax credit and get into an electric car Let me know what you guys think below, and yeah, I’m curious to see more Okay, next story We’re gonna talk about a Senate bill that could give Tesla and GM an electric car tax credit boost This is pretty cool This is something that I think is unexpected as well

This is Dean Heller of Nevada introduced a bill that would let Tesla, and GM, and all these other folks, keep that $7,500 tax credit, so that may stick around for a little while Now, the way it works currently is that any manufacturer that sells 200,000 electric vehicles in the United States, and by sells I mean delivers, hands over the keys or whatever, the card in Tesla’s case Once you hit that, the phase-out begins, and so that’s where we’re at now with Tesla If you don’t take delivery of your Tesla by the end of this year, you will effectively get half of that 3,750 for the first half of 2019, and then half of that in the second half of 2019, of 1,875 That’s kind of where it’s at now, but this bill would take a different approach It would be eliminating that $200,000 cap by manufacturer, and instead extend the flat $7,500 credit until 2022 for all manufacturers, at which point all incentives would go away, but again, 2022 is still quite a few years down the road, and we could have some major changes in the government by then in the US, which could even extend it even further Interesting stuff Now, he, Dean Heller here, I assume has an incentive, because he is from Nevada, and this is where Gigafactory 1 is, and they currently employ 3,000 people there This would, of course, benefit Tesla the most, GM and Nissan, for the Chevy Bolt and the Nissan Leaf, and also the things like the ZEV credits, zero-emission vehicle credits, that other manufacturers have to buy to sell cars in California There’s all kinds of weird little nuances to this, but it’s encouraging that this is happening Now, interestingly enough, there is a different senator, from Wyoming, who has proposed legislation to eliminate the EV tax credit entirely, and institute a new tax on EVs to fund highway repairs, so the exact opposite of Heller’s bill Now, the interesting thing about this and the current state of affairs, and I don’t wanna get into the politics of this stuff, but both of these bills were introduced by Republicans, the Congress is controlled by the Republican Party, and the White House is also Republican, so the chance of a Republican getting a bill through is much higher than a Democrat, but here you have a lot of Democrats that would support Heller’s bill, and none of them that would support the senator Barrasso’s bill Chances are, right now, because they have the weight of all the Democrats here, that Heller’s bill is kind of leaning towards a more favorable outcome than Barrasso’s We’ll see as to what’s gonna happen here, but all this talk about what’s going on with the tax credit and all that, I mean, it could all be a relatively moot point here if this bill goes through We’ve talked about this before; this isn’t something new Me and a lot of folks always kind of speculated, like, eh, as we get closer to this, there’s gonna be a lot of lobbying here, and it turns out that electric companies, power companies, which are also oil, and gas, and coal companies, like electric vehicles because they use electricity, and where does electricity come from in a lot of the United States? From those other sources It’s one of those things where there’s a lot of different reasons, and a lot of people that are really behind this, even if they don’t seem like they would naturally be I’m excited to see what happens Stay tuned Of course, I’ll keep you updated If this does pass, this will be major, major news, and we’ll have a whole kind of world, or the runway for electric vehicles really kind of accelerating their adoption will just become even longer And again, 2022, we will have a new president, or I’m sorry, we’ll have a new presidential election have occurred in the United States by then, which could lead to a new president, which could lead to all kinds of other changes Who knows what the future holds, but this is just one glimmer of hope there Let me know what you guys think about it in the comments down below Next, I wanna talk about some Tesla production Now, Tesla is, according to Electrek, able to maintain a production of close to 1,000 cars per day, which is awesome because this is helping them with their ramp, and with the ramp comes scale, and with scale comes profitability For them to hit 1,000 cars per day means that they’re getting 7,000 vehicles a week, and that’s huge, and really, the reason I wanted to bring this up is because it looks like that production is steady We also saw, recently, one of the VPs of the manufacturing at Tesla leave,

and there’s kind of some mystery surrounding that We don’t quite know all the details of it yet, but all of these things point to more stable production for Tesla, which is gonna open up more things for them down the road, and that’s really exciting because next year we’ve got a lot, namely the Model Y If you guys think about it, we’ve only got, what, four and a half months, not even four and a half, like five months almost, until we see the unveiling of the Model Y, if that March date that Elon tweeted in response to me, actually holds Interesting stuff coming up I’m really kind of curious how this is gonna play out, but now that they’re able to get 1,000 vehicles per day, 7,000 a week, we’re just gonna see some big, big numbers, and of course, just in a couple weeks here, we’ll have the earnings call for Q3, in which case we’ll hear if they actually achieved profitability, fingers crossed, or if not, how close they were, and just kind of how it all shook out More to come on this front, but exciting stuff nonetheless Now, the next bit I wanna talk about is the referral program, which now is much better Maybe, I don’t know the reasoning behind this, but basically what happened was the referral program, which previously gave you free, unlimited supercharging for the life of the vehicle as long as you owned it, dropped down to 100 bucks This was, what, October 1st, I think, and that really cut it down for a lot of folks Well, since then, they’ve revised it, and now it’s six months of free supercharging Once you get your car, start road-tripping, and now you can get it with the tax credit and free supercharging I mean, they are just layering on the benefits here for you, and I just confirmed it by going to my page here, and you can see it actually says, six months of free supercharging, and in addition, this includes all Tesla vehicles, not just the Performance Model 3, but all Model 3s This is incredible I mean, you can now get, after rebates, a $35,000 Tesla Model 3, with 260 miles of range, and free supercharging for the first six months while you have it You can drive around everywhere, and travel, and do it all for free, and I can tell you, it does pain me a little bit every time I have to pay to charge my Model 3, which I do take on road trips because it has the longer range, and prior to that I just used my Model S, which got free supercharging Definitely take advantage of this, and I think it’s just another incentive to get out there on the road and go on some road trips, which may be surprising to you, but road trips in Teslas are actually pretty cool, because what happens is, because of the location of the stops, you end up seeing some really cool places that you wouldn’t have otherwise seen Take advantage of that, guys There’s probably several referral codes floating around out there You can find one, or if you need mine, message me and I’ll send it to you Yeah, stoked on that, and also it is retroactive, so anybody that bought between when it was that $100 bonus, they also get theirs back, so good, good stuff Okay, now let’s revisit something that happened last week I think we already talked about this, but the Tesla dashcam is capturing some accidents here, and one of them is this kind of head-on collision, or I don’t know if I wanna call it head-on, but this is gonna be an interesting thing, because now that the camera is built in, I definitely recommend using it if you don’t have one Yeah, you can see this guy kind of just pulls out right there, and yeah, it’s just bad news, but the dashcam is starting to help people, and that’s good, but the question is, how useful is it? I did a video on this just last week, ’cause if you guys didn’t see it I took the Tesla dashcam and I took a $40 dashcam called the Apeman, and a $400 dashcam, the BlackVue, and just did a side-by-side comparison, and the results were actually pretty interesting, I think If you didn’t see that video, go ahead and make sure to check it out after this one, because I think it may incentivize you to get one over the other, but if you didn’t see that, Tesla now has a dashcam, and it’s some surprising footage out there Yeah, I hope that none of you guys end up in one of those videos there, because that’s not good news Okay, next I wanna talk about just one little thing here that caught my attention just today, and let me just pull up the video This is not cool, but I think it’s useful and important for us to talk about This was that a Tesla Model S was stolen by somebody copying the key fob, and you can see that, in this video here, where these guys come up, and let me just kind of, there you go, and this guy has a tablet, the one on the left

The person that made the video kind of highlights it there He has this key fob signal reader, I guess, and the other guy has a phone, and they’re trying to do some stuff, and eventually they get into it The guy said his key fob was in the back of the house, and the guy with the phone does get it I don’t know if he was transferring the signal to it or what, but you can see, this is in the UK That’s why he’s on the wrong side of the car there, and then they got stuck They couldn’t figure out how to get the charging cable unplugged, so that almost saved the car, but then they eventually do figure it out You can see right there they figure it out, and then they head off Now, the thing that is frustrating about this is that they were able to disable the remote access so neither him nor Tesla can actually track the car, which really sucks, and yeah, I mean, this guy’s Model S was stolen We do have data about this, that in large part, Model S Teslas, they are recovered I think there’s only three in the US out of the 115 that are still kind of out there I think there was 112 out of 115 were recovered We’ve seen data like this before, but the two things that Tesla recommends here on ways to help with this are kind of wild One is to do this thing, which is called a Faraday pouch Kind of ironic that it’s Faraday and Tesla, but what this does is it kind of blocks any of the signal, so you could throw your key fobs in here, so that way, nobody could actually steal them, and I put a link to this in the description, or I think I did If not, I will That way, these guys wouldn’t have been able to copy that However, with the Model 3, there is no key fob, so you wouldn’t have that issue, but your phone, for me anyways, ’cause my house isn’t ginormous, my phone is constantly connected It’s always connected to the car, which I also think hurts the battery drain, the phantom drain and stuff This actually wouldn’t help there I’d have to just turn my phone off, or disable Bluetooth while I’m at home, and just not perfect, and I don’t know how easily that’d be able to copy, but definitely something to consider if you have a Model S or a Model X with the key fob, or if you’re getting one of the new Model 3 key fobs, that might be another thing there Now, there is another thing here, a setting called PIN To Drive, where these folks would have had to, these guys that were stealing it, would have had to enter a PIN in order to drive, so when you get in, you’d have to enter the code every single time It would be really cool if this feature were time-based Yeah, overnight when your car is sitting there it just automatically turns on, ’cause it’d kind of get to be a headache, I would imagine Now, the thing that sucks about this is that this feature here, this is only available on Model S and X I had my wife go check earlier today, and so maybe it’s in a different place, but this place on the Model 3, this PIN To Drive does not exist currently, so this is a feature, a security feature that is currently missing, and it will not add that level of security If these people had done this with a Model 3, there would have been no way to stop them from driving away with it, and again, the thing that was surprising to me was that they were able to disable the mobile access They definitely knew about that, but then they didn’t know how to actually unplug it, which seems weird that you’d know that one but not the other one Yeah, there you have it That’s it for the stories today I’m gonna head over to some Patreon questions right now If you would like to get your questions answered, you can support me on Patreon by going to teslanomics.co/patreon, and from there, anyone, that dollar a month or more, so not a lot of money, gets their questions answered Also gets kind of a backstage view on some of the other planning items and the way that I’ve kind of organized the content here on the channel If you guys are into that, I would love your support, ’cause every little bit helps All right, so, first question is from crafty_geek Crafty asks, can you hook up multiple devices using TezLab so you can look at it from a different UI, or from, I think, an iPad? Not yet, but I will pass that along There is a way, using TezLab, if you guys are familiar with that, it’s an app that I’m a part of the company, and we built this thing that will allow you to kind of monitor your phantom drain, and your trip history, and all that kind of stuff, and you can view an in-car dash from it, so there is a Web view, but the app itself, I don’t think works exactly how you’re expecting I’ll pass that along, and thank you for the comment Bridget asks, version nine, pretty glitchy for you so far? My phone works less often to unlock or drive my car Streaming then an issue, loading error, as is showing traffic and maps

I have had to reboot twice after needing to install all the six months I’ve had the car Are they still releasing version nine, which my friend, who just got her 3 has yet to get, or fixing it first? Lots of stuff there, Bridget I will say yeah, there’s certainly kind of mixed results out there that I’ve seen for version nine, folks like yourself having issues I haven’t really seen too many of those issues I did drive my Model 3 for the past week I also have it in my Model S, and the Model S seems fine I’ve had no issues The Model 3, to me, still is very early in its software maturation It’s still all kinds of issues, and features missing, and things like that Of course, they’ll be coming, but right now I wouldn’t expect too much out of it It is as pretty big update, and so it’s pretty cool I’m stoked on what they’re doing here, but yeah, certainly there’s some stuff that needs to be fixed I haven’t had those issues at all I did just get a new phone, which I’m gonna be sending back, and if you guys are interested about that, I’ll maybe post a video on it, but yeah, I haven’t had any of those issues, so maybe it’s just a localized thing, and hopefully it goes away soon Geoff says hi Hi, Geoff Chamburn says, seeing the Model 3, how simple the interior with the central display is, which controls everything Tesla apparently will be making the model X and S similar, which not everyone approves of, myself included Do you think that Tesla will make it a way that future models will fit both left-hand drive and right-hand drive markets with only minimal changes, and you can go vice versa any time? I don’t know about that I mean, maybe from the interior, yeah, you would just shift the steering wheel over, but the center console and everything is the same, versus having to build them in a mirrored format I’m not quite sure, but I’m actually very much not looking forward to that same type of interior for the Model S and Model X, because I do hope to upgrade my Model S at some point, and I would be bummed if I didn’t have that We’ll see what it’s like Cool, thank you for the question there Now let’s head over to Crowdcast, and we will start with Leo Leo says, Hi Ben, now that Elon released the limited-edition mid-range, LEMR, which yeah, I guess that’s what I was thinking, too I have two questions The battery cap is higher than the standard, but the top speed is less, and is slower Do you think that is worth an extra 10K, and now that the long-range rear wheel is no longer available, would that make my LL long-range rear-wheel-drive value go up, collectors, or down, discontinued Leo, Elon did respond, and say that the long-range is still available, but you go place the order, and then you call in, and you can change it to the long-range instead of the mid-range That’s very interesting to me, because if they are, in fact, producing them with less battery cells, I’m just a little confused I mean, I’m not a manufacturing expert, but it seems like there’s some weird stuff going on there Maybe someone more insight could explain that to me Right now, it seems a little confusing I don’t know about it being a collector’s edition or anything That’d be sweet, because I don’t know if we’ll keep our Model 3 forever Yeah, I mean, but is it worth the extra 10K? Yeah, I think the long-range totally is If you’re looking at the standard compared to this one, I think the mid-range is, because you have the longer, I mean, those 40 miles, you’ll be shocked on a road trip, at how much of a difference that makes I always opt for the longest-range battery possible Thanks for the question, Leo Carlo asks, I understand that charging at a supercharger too many times may be harmful to the battery How about charging on a 120-volt plug? Is there any downside to keeping the car on a plug for a lengthy period of time? I’ve been plugging in at work for six to eight hours each day, wondering if there’s too much wear on the battery and its charging components No, I wouldn’t worry about that at all The reason that the superchargers cause any extra damage or harm to the battery is the speed itself, and if you look, there’s some images that people had about the lithium-ion cells, and kind of the, I forget what it’s called, but it’s kind of like a corrosion It looks like little fuzzy hair or something on the actual layers of the battery, and so, with too many fast charges, that’s what they said is causing it, and then it’ll kind of harm the battery, but with the slower rate, you should be fine Yeah, I wouldn’t worry about it Brian asks, does the release of the mid-range Model 3 worry you about their ability to produce a $35,000 Model 3? Do you think they’re just waiting till they can get enough margin on the 35,000? It has been delayed quite a bit now, and it always seems three to six months away Yeah, I mean, they’ve said It doesn’t worry me at all I’m sure it’ll come, but it’s one of those things where stable production, it’s always gonna be the last one they make This is how the Model S worked This is how the Model X worked It’s just kind of economies of scale Tesla doesn’t do things like a typical car manufacturer, and so, because of that, they don’t just release all the different options at the same time They do them in phases because they still are a very fledgling kind of car company,

even though their market cap is huge It’s one of those things where they don’t have, necessarily, the capital to just do it all, and have 10 lines going Down the road, maybe things will change, maybe the next 10 years, but I would say, even with the Model Y, you’re gonna see the exact same thing You’re gonna see the super high-end one first, then you’ll see, kind of, a mid-range one next, and then the standard one maybe two, three years later, after the original one starts being sold Yeah, I mean, I’m not worried about it I don’t think you should be, either, and honestly, I still question, actually, how valuable the $35,000 one is I would totally go for this new one if I were buying today That’s my thoughts on it Thanks for the question, Brian Leo asks, you did a video when you accidentally spilled something in the bottom compartment of your trunk Yep, it was removed by Elite Finish and cleaned Recently, my daughter opened the drunk, (chuckles), the trunk from the screen, and I didn’t know A rainstorm came and went The compartment filled up, and I had to empty it out with buckets at a time Took days to dry Is there anything directly underneath it? No, you don’t This happened to me, actually, recently, with a rainstorm as well, my own dumb fault, where I installed the sealant around the trunk opening upside down, and so, when the water came off, it didn’t get caught and then routed around, it just went straight down in Tesla actually came out We pulled out that trunk piece, let it dry for a week, put it back The only thing you’d have to be worried about, it’s underneath the back seat There’s some clips underneath the back seat You can kind of reach under there and just slide them out, and you should be able to pull it off Now, if anything in there is wet, I would say you definitely should have Tesla come out and look at it, because that’s where kind of a lot of the brain of the engine, or, I’m sorry, of the motor and everything are But other than that, no, I actually had a very similar issue, for different reasons, but yeah, that whole area is good back there Thanks for the question, Leo Alex asks, with the introduction of 260-mile Model 3, do you still think the long-range battery has the best cost-benefit based on the data? Well, there you go We just looked at that It seems to me that since all the other parts are the same, and the cost of power electronics will now be proportionally higher, this medium-range battery will be less cost-effective compared to the long-range You are correct, sir Do you feel this was a mistake for Tesla to introduce? Stock market does feel that way Who knows what the hell the stock market’s doing? Those guys are generally just drunk, throwing numbers at a board, is how I feel about them, and so I wouldn’t worry about the stock market In terms of the cost, yeah, I mean, in every way you look at it, this is not a good of value as the long-range, but I think the challenge is that not everyone can afford that monthly payment That’s what it comes down to This happens for so many things If you could afford some crazy amount of T-shirts you were ordering for your business, yeah, you would save money per unit, but then you would be broke, and you couldn’t operate anymore I think it makes sense to bring that price down, because a lot of people can’t really handle that large 700, $800 monthly payment on a car I don’t think it’s dumb, but you’re definitely correct that the value isn’t as great as the long-range, which we just looked at, so yeah Thanks for the question there Zach asks, hi Ben, like you, I too find the red paint on the Model 3 appealing, yeah, I definitely like that, but over time, I’ve noticed that the price has gone up a few times, now at 2,500 Yep I was on board with the initial increase over the base color, but at this point I can no longer really justify it, and will likely go with my second choice Have you heard of it this just a result of the higher material costs, or supply and demand? I don’t know I really don’t understand When they first upped the price, it was, what, everything was 1,000 bucks, and then, with the exception of the solid black that came free Then it was 1,500, I believe, for red and white, because they were multicoat That made sense You’re using more paint It takes more time It takes more materials All makes sense Then everything started going up again and again and again I can’t really understand this Possible I hope it’s related to cost, and not just trying to make added margin on it I don’t know At this point, at 2,500 bucks, I mean, you’re getting into the price where you could do a wrap Yeah, I don’t know, man I probably wouldn’t buy it nowadays Thanks for the question, Zach Franz asks, can you please explain tiers We recently took our Model 3 to Canada from Long Island The trip was 1,300 miles, and we used many superchargers When I read over my bill, I was charged using two different tiers Tier one is a half rate of tier two Yep There are times when the tier two never comes into play Can you please explain this system in detail? Yeah, so I believe I’ve done videos on this I’ll try to give you the short answer Different utilities in different regions have laws, regulations, that force Tesla to charge rates a specific way

In some places, like in California, it’s just however much you consume I believe it’s 26 cents per kilowatt-hour, but in other places, like Nevada, I believe, it’s based on how long you’re charging If you’re, I believe, zero to 60 minutes, or, I’m sorry, zero to 60 kilowatt-hours, I forget what it is, but there’s a point where it’s a certain amount, or a certain amount of time, and after that the tier changes At which case, there’s probably somebody out there that has done some smart math on figuring out, oh hey, you should actually only charge here for this amount of time, and then head out, because then it’ll charge you a different rate, and it’ll be cheaper overall, but then again, that may add more to your trip It has to do with that, the tiers that are being forced on Tesla by the utilities, which is not uncommon You can go, I believe, to Tesla’s website and see all of these If not, I believe I have a calculator on my website which lists all of them, so you can go check that out, but yeah, it’s kind of annoying and confusing It’s one of those things where you just look at it and go, uh okay, I just gotta pay for it There’s nothing you can really do about it Maybe you could figure out a way to cross the state line and maybe get a different rate, or something like that Yeah, but I do have a calculator and a little map where you can kind of map those things out on teslanomics.co, so go check that out, and yeah, unfortunately, beyond that, there’s not much that we can do Jason asks, this is my first time on Crowdcast Hey, all right Welcome, Jason My question is, do you think that when Tesla starts battery production in China, and possibly car production, that those batteries and cars will only be used for the Chinese and European markets, or do you think they will be used in Tesla vehicles sold in the United States and Canada? No, I do not believe that I don’t think they’re going to Europe, either If I understand correctly, they’re only for the Chinese market, which is the largest EV market in the world, by far, so they will have more than enough demand locally Yeah, so my understanding is it’s just for the Chinese market, and especially with all the crazy tariff stuff going on right now, with importing and exporting stuff, I can’t foresee, unless that stuff all just disappears, I can’t foresee them actually importing them into the United States, especially since they already have their current largest plant here, and are likely gonna be opening a new plant soon to handle production of the Semi and the Model Y Yeah, no, but interesting stuff, and obviously, wait and see, ’cause we’ll be covering that here on the show Thanks for the question, Jason Holly asks, recently had an at-home service done here in Michigan I asked the service technician about driving a huge diesel truck, since it was pretty ironic Did he drive a huge diesel truck, really? He said that they won’t be getting the Model S service car, because Michigan won’t even let them store parts for the cars anywhere, so they needed big trucks That is crazy Is it just Michigan, or do any other states have these anti-Tesla laws? I believe there are four or five states, maybe four now I know Texas, it used to be Utah, but they opened it up, Michigan, and I think Michigan is actually really interesting if you wanna dig in deeper There was a lawsuit in Michigan about this, and I believe Tesla won the lawsuit, and so the prosecutor, or whatever, the car companies have to release emails between them and lobbying groups about this whole thing that put the ban in place for Tesla This is a really kind of juicy, crazy story going on out there right now, and you can Google that, and there’s lots more info about it I haven’t heard anything on it in a while, but yeah, it’s definitely like a Michigan thing I think there might be a few more states, like maybe New Hampshire, or somewhere like that, that have issues with it, but yeah, it’s crazy, and I’m surprised at huge diesel truck Where I’m at, I actually just had a mobile service appointment It was kind of this like small Ford service van, which I really hope Tesla will make in the future, ’cause that is a huge market, I think, that is just growing Yeah, thanks for the question, Holly Thanks for joining Ronnie asks, my wife and I are trying to decide between a 3 or an S Ooh (sighs), with the new S and X interior refresh showing a horizontal screen, do you think the majority of updates they will go more toward the newer S and X, and that the older vertical screens will eventually be phased out, similar to version nine, with cars with 2.0 got blind-spot camera, et cetera Well, my 2013 Model S got the update Obviously, I don’t have cameras on it, so I don’t get those kind of features, but I think they’re gonna be supporting these things for a long time I wouldn’t worry too much about that I would go with the car that fits your use case more specifically I know a lot of people will have, let’s say, a Model X to have their family in In road trips it’s really comfortable, nice, and all that kind of stuff, but then, maybe Mom or Dad,

whoever goes to work and back, and commutes, you’ll get a Model 3 because it’s much better for that I think, just looking at that, getting the right one that fits your use case is the best route I wouldn’t really worry about the updates and the older versus the newer I mean, certainly if you were to buy a brand-new Model S or X, it would be, or Model S, it would be getting updates for many years to come It’s not something I’d be too concerned about, and honestly, with the Model 3, remember, that is the lower-end, cheaper, less feature-rich version than the Model S That’s clear There’s no real way you can argue around that, and certainly the Model S is the flagship vehicle, still, for their lineup It’s one of those things, like that’s probably your best bet, but again, it depends on your use case There you go, Ronnie Allen asks, I noticed the Tesla charger is warm, even when not charging Any idea amounts of watts the charger draws when not in use? I don’t, and if you find that out, let me know I’ve been trying to get at that for a while, and I think there’s a voltmeter or something I can buy to plug in, but it’s more than I’ve had the ambition to go do, so I don’t, but let me know what you find Thanks, Allen Roxie asks, what production should one use on the, what product should one use on the glass top of my Model 3? Well, Roxie, I am a huge fan of a product that Elite Finish in San Diego makes, called WashMist WashMist, it works on everything, really, and I use it on my cars I know other guys that have Tesla rental companies They use it on all theirs It’s a waterless wash system, so you barely use any water It’s like you have a little concentrate, one ounce of concentrate for a 15-ounce bottle It’s a spray bottle You spray it on You wipe it off It costs 100 bucks or so, I think, for like a year’s supply, and when you do it, depending on how dirty your car is, it maybe takes 10, 15 minutes It’s definitely the cheapest, fastest, and most environmentally-friendly way to do it I use it on mine I’ve been using on it since very early I’m a huge fan of WashMist You think you can go, if you go to teslanomics.co/m3kit, M-3-K-I-T, it’ll show you, kind of, all the products that I recommend for the Model 3 There you go, and yeah, good luck, Roxie BioTech asks, whatever happened to the roof that turns red/orange in the rain? Is Tesla not producing them any longer? I don’t know Mine does It does on the, I think, newer Model S and Model X Yeah, it’s still there It’s the IR-rejection film I don’t know if something changed that I’m not aware of Phil asks, is the current autopilot hardware chip at 400% operations a second max, or may be the limit from moving beyond level-three autonomy until the new board swap? If so, would you agree that those of us who didn’t purchase full autonomy option is basically getting an enhanced safety/convenience feature? Uh, (sighs), man, I don’t know The full autonomy thing still is so far down the road for it to truly be available We may start to see some other features, but the question, I think, comes down to, what will the added cost be if you wanted to upgrade that chip, and then enable some of those features, versus, let’s say, the money you could make on putting that into an index fund for the past, I don’t know, three, four, five years? This is one of those things I think what it comes down to, it’s probably negligible, and for those that already have that I don’t know, man It’s a weird thing I’m curious to see, maybe, I would not be shocked at all if we don’t even hear a peep about full self-driving features until 2020 or later, because at that point, I mean, there’s still so much for Enhanced Autopilot to be released that they have a long way to go, even on that Yeah, more to come Thanks for the question, Phil Got a lot of votes on today’s questions Good stuff Mary asks, any news on the availability of the key fob for the Tesla 3? I don’t know I did have a service guy out this past weekend, asked him about it, and he said, “Yep, I don’t know “We’ll get them when we get them,” and so yeah, we’ll probably hear more about that some time soon Maybe Tesla will post on a blog or something like that Actually now, with that car being stolen using the key fob, maybe it’s not such a great idea. (chuckles) I don’t know, yeah Stay tuned, Mary Thanks for the question PRNMatt asks, bonjour Ben, when my Model 3 temperature control is in split mode, is it true that it’s possible to be expending a/c on one side, and heating on the other in hot climates? How can this be detected and/or prevented? I don’t know I haven’t tested that, and I believe the temperature setting is only one I don’t think you have two temperature settings I’d have to test that I’m not quite sure, but I mean, yeah, just give it a shot, I suppose, and you can figure it out Thanks for the question, Matt Vic asks, I just read that the 20-inch Michelin Pilot Sport 4S, also known as the PS4S tires, should not be driven in temperatures under 40 degrees

Why does Tesla not make buyers more aware of this? Tesla should be at least offer an 18-inch wheel that is compatible with the larger red calipers, since I will have to buy a set of winter tires, and I would like to stick with the Tesla wheels Don’t know Wasn’t aware of that As far as I know, those are the stickiest, best tires you can possibly buy Maybe that’s, yeah, under different conditions that’s not true Yeah, so I’m not aware, and I don’t live in a colder climate, so I really don’t have any first-hand experience Maybe check out Trevor with Model 3 Owners Club, or Zac and Jesse with Now You Know Maybe they have some more info on that in some of their channels Thanks for the question, Vic Manos asks, Tesla’s story is about Tesla versus the world Can you show a chart of sales per brand from the beginning of time? Yeah, you know, so this was an interesting thing I wanted to do that, ’cause I showed it last week It’s called baselining That’s what I call it, where you take a measure of something, and you have a few different cohorts, or three different models, and you wanna see how they sold from the first day that they began selling, versus the actual day, as of today, because it’s not a fair comparison, and you do this with movies a lot Like, which one was the best? You don’t say, which one was the best today, versus some other movie that came out 10 years ago You look at how they did relative to their start time I don’t know if we actually have that data If someone has that data of when the first-ever electric car came out, the EV1, and all these other ones, I would love to see that data, ’cause I would totally make that chart If you have it, hit me up on Twitter Send it over Thanks, Manos Walt asks, thank you for all the Q and A You’re welcome Can you tell us where there’s more explanation of how to populate the calendar with an iPhone In the app, and I don’t have an iPhone, but with the Tesla app, you have to go into settings, and there’s a thing there, let me see if I can find it for you Uh, ch-ch-ch, hey, go away There is a, so, in the gear icon on the top left, think this is good there Yeah, there’s a thing here It says, Calendar Sync I don’t know if you can see that See if I can find it for you Yeah, Calendar Sync, right there You just have to make sure to check that, and then it should work I, again, I don’t have an iPhone, so I can’t speak to it first-hand Thanks for the question, Walt Danticus asks, Tesla announcing Q3 on Tuesday the 30th Will you hold off doing next week’s show until after that, or will you do another breakdown afterwards on Tuesday night? Yeah, it’s a good question, ’cause that’s Halloween It’s gonna be a spooky earnings call Yeah, maybe I will That’s not a bad idea I’ll think about that, ’cause yeah, obviously, and this tends to happen It’s always on a Tuesday, and I always do my show on the Monday before, and it’s kind of like, agh, so anyways I’ma take couple more questions here Let me find, we got a bunch, man, so many votes, such good engagement today All right, I’m just gonna go top to bottom, ’cause I don’t know how to order these, but Ken asks, regarding the narrative that Tesla has been unprofitable, I’d like to see an interactive graph of revenue minus amortized costs over time with control versus amortization period Notion of evaluating profitability is based on quarterly reporting seems to be based on the assumption that we should expect to see 100% return on all investments within 90 days Given that Tesla has been showing consistent 60% revenue growth, the graph would make the case that Tesla’s already profitable Yeah, I mean, we can bend things to make these cases Unfortunately, the reason this matters is because this is what Wall Street, one of the markers that Wall Street uses, so we can shift our perspective on it, and maybe this is better, maybe it’s not, but the point is, I think, when you’re looking at data, is to, looking at a measure, a descriptive statistic, isn’t necessarily how great that given individual measure is, but that you are consistent in its use and application Unfortunately, I mean, I guess I disagree that we should do this, because it’s not how Wall Street and others are gonna view it, and so because of that, it’s not gonna drive any change I wouldn’t recommend it It’s one of those things, and in my career that I’ve had forever, doing this stuff at companies, it’s been one of the key things It’s like it’s not necessarily, is this the absolute best way to measure this thing, but is it a good one that we can be consistent with over time? And you think about it, summary statistics like batting average, or GDP, or some of these other ones, they definitely have flaws in them, but the fact that they’re consistent allows us to do these kind of comparisons, and longitudinal studies, and so in that aspect, I think they’re valuable But again, I have a very kind of cynical view of Wall Street, so I really don’t care what they think, and I wish Tesla was private, in that regard Yeah, I get what you’re saying Not gonna do it, though, because of those reasons

Thanks for the comment and thoughtful question there, Ken Jason asks, I got a new USB drive, and formatted it for the Tesla dashcam It worked great, and then, when I got the camera icon with the X instead of the recording dot How did this happen? Yep, it definitely happened in my testing Can’t explain it I did buy a new drive, that USB Fit one that I mentioned, that’s really tiny so you’re not gonna bang it and mess it up, and that one has been working flawlessly I did notice, the first time I saw the issue with the dashcam not recognizing the USB was after I unplugged it, took some of the footage off there, and then plugged it back in I had to go reformat it again So, maybe just set it and forget it Unless you have an accident and you need the footage Since I’ve done that, and I’ve had this running for the past week in my Model 3, it’s been fine That’s what I’d recommend Yeah, and I definitely did run into that, so it’s not just you Again, it’s a very beta feature. (chuckles) Thanks for the question, Jason Mservice asks, let’s talk solar I’m having mine installed November 21st Congrats Looking forward to it However, because I have a small townhouse, I can’t install a Powerwall Considering the size of the townhome, I was thinking that maybe Tesla should make smaller ones to accommodate small homes, if that makes sense That’s not a bad idea Man, I mean, is it, how small does it have to be, though, because they’re not that giant I think the harder part is the wiring and everything else The question I would ask is how valuable that is I don’t know where you’re located, so I can’t say, but for example, in San Diego we have Net Energy Metering, where essentially the grid itself acts as my battery They do charge a tax on that, but in the end it’s still a great deal for me Yeah, I mean, I think it would be cool I agree, but you could actually make one yourself This guy Jehu Garcia has a really cool channel where he’s built several now, at this point, using old laptop batteries, and they’re just as functional and just as good, and you can make it whatever size you want I don’t know how DIY kinda of crafty you are in that space, but there’s a way to do it You could probably start today Thanks for question All right, last question here, from Keith Good afternoon, Ben Now that all Tesla vehicles are eligible for free supercharging, could you find out if this extends to those who have purchased our Model 3s earlier this year? I did not use a referral code when purchasing my Model 3 because at the time I was not eligible for the type of free supercharging I do not believe it does, Keith You could email Tesla about that Maybe they’ll allow it I’m not quite sure That sucks, I agree, but possibly if you email and contact them, they’ll hook you up, but I don’t have any other specific knowledge of that Thanks for the question, guys I’m gonna call it there Sorry if I didn’t get to your question today Stay tuned We’ll have another shot at it next week, or possibly on Tuesday for the earnings call, which makes a lot of sense Usually, what I do, actually, is I do a Livestream of the earnings call, and I have kind of the commentary before and after, so maybe that’s what we’ll do: still have the live show, but it does seem a little weird to have it the day before I don’t know Anyways, thank you all for joining me here, yet again, on the show, and don’t forget, when you free the data, your mind will follow I’ll see you guys back here next time (laid-back jazz-funk music)

right on ham here and have you ever had one of those days well I buy used shotguns and I prefer to buy shotguns that have issues and I do minor gunsmithing on them do a few repairs and then I sell them well this happens to be a high standard pointer and when I saw it I saw that it had a problem and and then I was informed that it had a problem it wasn’t ejecting correctly and usually when it doesn’t eject in my experience it’s the ejector in this case high-standard has a funny thing called an ex jecht er it’s a combination of an extractor and ejector now here’s the primary extractor and here is what should be the secondary extractor slash ejector and when it when it reaches the end of its travel that’s supposed to poke the case out but it’s not supposed to look like that knowing that I thought you know hey here’s a little room to uh to buy a gun that somebody doesn’t want and and to turn it into something that somebody does want well I’m I live in America and let the buyer beware because I bought the shotgun and it had more than one problem well I knew what this problem was so I had a X checked er which you see it goes all the way along here it’s held in by a pin it’s under a spring pressure to go back and forth that way and this is what it’s supposed to look like sticking out there of course it doesn’t so this is the correct part I’m going to replace that but I also found some other issues and let me go over to those issues one of which I’ve already corrected it was a simple issue but an issue nonetheless here’s my repair part um this is the primary issue and I would have known that had i Function checked the gun a little bit better but I don’t normally function check by dry-firing so and that’s mainly reason of if you’re at a gun show and you see a gun and he tried to dry fire it and and it doesn’t it doesn’t it doesn’t help that people don’t like their guns to be dry fired so I prefer to buy the gun and if it’s got a problem with the trigger I’ll bite it but I haven’t had to do it until now and I’ll show you the reason because this is not the same exact part this is a part that I ordered it might be from a JC Higgins but this is the part that was originally there and if you look up inside you will see that one of these things is not like the other that one is clearly broken down inside of there not to mention that but I don’t much care for the gold-plated stuff the gold plating is mostly worn off here so what I ended up doing is I ended up buying this trigger and it had a non gold-plated safety with it so I’m going to swap those out and I’ve never dug into a JC Higgins trigger group because I don’t think I ever had to they’re pretty stout normally I just I have a reason to now this this is broken now I don’t know how it got broken but I do intend to fix it now seeing as how it’s a different design I worry that it’s a it’s different enough that I might have to do some fitting it’s got a spring down here and this one’s got a hump eyes I don’t really know I’m this might not work I’ve got I’ve got a back-up plan if that doesn’t work but well well do this together and the other problem that I had with this shotgun is some I would call him an idiot but you know it’s a tool and you could do whatever you want with your tool somebody had taken this which says 30 watt something or other no if it’s a fuse or what but it’s basically a hollow empty cup made out of aluminium and they had jammed a good half of this spring down inside of it and I think the intent was to make it the same length as the the magazine tube and to make it easier to load that’s the only thing I could think of because there very little pressure on the on the follower here so that’s what I guess I don’t know but that was an easy fix I just basically it has these little wings that kind of held the spring down in there it’s kind of an ingenious fix if if you don’t really know how shotguns work and it probably made it less reliable so I don’t doubt that’s the reason why I got this gun but they’re all simple fixes fairly inexpensive and in the end I’ll have a shotgun that I think will be fully functional and better and I might actually keep this

one very dirty as you would imagine with a 50 year old shotgun that probably hasn’t seen too much in the way of maintenance but good one good solid wood no splits that I could see a little in there but that’s where they commonly split up there and be the stock is solid and the receiver has no pitting to speak of just a few spots of some heavy rust that I would consider in a few areas of rust also that I’ll hit with my penny method of cleaning and if you don’t know what that is what I’ll do is right up here in the corner I’ll link that the video of that so the rib is in good condition unlike some of the other the JC Higgins shotguns that I showed you earlier that had the exact same rib on it the only other problem is and I do this when I bought the gun the only other problem is it’s a little ding on the muzzle there and I think I’ll just clean that up a little bit because that won’t affect function I might just wreak round the muzzle I might clean it up yeah I don’t know I don’t think I’m going to chop this shotgun down because I think I work just fine as it is all right I will pause the video I will do some work in I will get back with you okay I wanted to give you a little insight into how this works essentially I cleaned up the new part a little bit here and you can see how dirty the old part is but I doubt it was ever out of there just kind of broke so there’s the broken end anyhow this a slot here there goes you know lengthwise corresponds to this spring here so that spring goes inside of that slot and then this pin goes down in front of said spring believe it or not and that is what gives it its spring tension in there it’s a very odd system I guess but it’s way it works it’s going to be paying a buck to get back and get it back in there anyways that the raceway here is where the extractor slides and I haven’t cleaned that up completely is it’s extract or X ejector and so it’ll slide basically in there and it should sit flush most of the time and then kind of shove it out right at the end there so I cleaned up the both a little bit not too bad there’s also this pin here that’s protruding just a little bit I’m going to tap that in just as a note there’s a splines on this pin if you ever have to do the work yourself the splines you have to you have to drive the pan out from the bottom because the splines were in the top there you go I’ll be back in a few minutes so that didn’t seem like much trouble at all you go it’s a back together what I had to do is I had to push that into protruded just slightly into the channel there you can see the spring in there and what it did is it caught the beginning of the spring and I stuffed the punch in from the bottom here to catch the bottom half of the spring and I pushed it in just a little bit to make sure it was all free and I wasn’t kicking it or anything like that did in from the top it helps if you have three hands but I don’t so I had to hold yeah I had that I had to improvise so Alda knew the reason I did this one as it was the easier repair and I might be working on the trigger for a while and I wanted to get this one done before I get aggravated with that so dummy round here a zoom dummy Ram so what happens is the the shell is extracted like this and then when it gets to the end of its travel this here strikes the surface and it ejects the rim and that’s a little bit quicker you can see how this little nub gets is sitting out in the open and it’s exposed and you know it could very easily break off and I have proof that it’s done it at least once okay I forgot to knock that pin back in but when I get back I’ll show you what I’ve done with the trigger guard and hopefully hacking that or with the trigger group and hopefully I can I can get that done for you be back in a minute okay I ran into a little bit of a hitch here and I kind of knew what I wanted to do but I just wanted to show you what I am doing there’s a disconnect

er here that basically a secondary sear here’s the broken trigger by the way so you could see it broke and the reason to broke is because there’s a little slot cut out there for this disconnect er to go in there and and it’s it’s spring-loaded and what that does is that catches the hammer while you’ve got the trigger pulled back and when you release the trigger it the the secondary sear here disappears and the primary sear on the front of the trigger which is this surface here engages the hammer well without the secondary see or what happens is the gun can slam fire which is just fine and on the JC Higgins model which this trigger I guess is from I had to do a little research to figure it out first on the JC Higgins model it’s not only just fine but that’s that’s kind of the you know that’s that’s factory since I’m replacing with the JC Higgins trigger I am going to eliminate secondary seer the plunger and the spring here as unnecessary and the gun will function just a little bit different from the way used tube in other words it will function just like the JC Higgins model which is less expensive so just to show you here the looking down from the top you can see there is no secondary seer which would be in this area kind of and that would catch catch the the nose of the hammer right there I guess alright C load catch something but essentially it it’s unnecessary I’m going to function check this after I’m done here here’s another this is off of a JC Higgins model 20 which is the same in most aspects and in fact the trigger is similar but a little bit cheaper because this one has a set screw right there so I’m gonna go ahead and finish my job I just wanted to show you that little idiosyncrasy there here’s the complete stripped trigger guard with one exception and I also wanted to show you that in order to get the safety out see that little hole there that little hole you stick a end of a paperclip in there and you push up on that and that there’s a ball detent that goes up into the housing here you push up on that and then you push it through that way which and on the gun would be like you’re putting the safety or taking the safety off see right now that ball T to d-10 moves down inside of there and a little slot down in there that gold piece it moves that slot out of the way so that the hammer will hit this little nub on the hammer will will hit that that area and when it when it moves out of the way it’s like that the trigger can go down soon there we go and I clean everything up put it back together and I’ll be back in a minute I just wanted to show you the trigger group that’s been all cleaned out detail clean there’s still a few bits of gunk down inside of there and down inside of the spring hole there’s the safety remove you see they wear the hole where the detent would go and we’ll go and it is awful clean I’m going to while it up and put it all back together and see if it works be back in a minute okay that took me a little longer than I expected I kind of figured out what the problem was and why the trigger broke and let me demonstrate that to you you see I’ve got the I’ve got the non gold-plated parts in here so what you see here is there’s a there’s a little paddle and if you look closely inside there’s that little nub that moves forward in the way of the trigger so now it’s barely out of the way and you can see as I pull the trigger that trigger kind of clears that little nub and of course when the hammer Falls it that little lever goes back in the way of the trigger something Falls look of the trigger and that little nub goes back up in there but the problem was that little nub actually impinges on the slide release so you can see that that leverages that back of course it releases the slide up here well that part had probably been replaced or the slide replete release had been replaced one of the two but either way that

little the little nub in there wasn’t being allowed to move back like it is now out of the way so what I did is I altered the cheapest part which in this case was this paddle that I could alter I could have altered this also and kind of carved Trench do you see where you see where it’s a it’s touching it’s a shiny piece up top you see where it’s touching there and it’s touching the slide release so I altered that surface and and got it I do have a luxury today of having another gun here so that I could compare the geometry and so that worked out pretty well so everything is fixed the reason for the trigger not working and the reason for the trigger breaking it has been found and that is a that’s clearly that little surface there I’m glad I got it I was able to fix it so let’s do a function check so safety off pull the trigger and the hammer Falls try that again okay so Falls let’s put the safety on and pull the trigger and nothing will happen and we’re done all right so I’m going to go ahead and put the gun together and I may I may not get to a range session but essentially solving well now for problems the the clearance problem and the the fit problem with the this little paddle here the trigger being broken because that little paddle was there the ugly safety parts that I replaced with the with good-looking safety parts cleaned up the assembly and now I’m ready to clean up the rest of the gun put it back together and I’ll do a function check on that with my dummy rounds and we should be good to go so I’ve got it back together now no uh no issues and I will demonstrate that everything works here okay it works good I already tried it with a couple of rounds here off camera because it’s difficult to do left-handed so if you see down the inside of yeah maybe you can see it see that little X jekt er there yeah see how it stops move it back just a little bit and yeah and it stops and pushes in and out and ejects now it’s working everything else is working put the safety on see that it does fire take the safety off fire and what it did is a didn’t necessarily slam fire that the hammer just followed the bolt home and we’re set everything is hunky-dory cleaned it up a little bit took some of the rust off and cleaned up the dent the ding on the on the muzzle is a little sharp what you want to do is you want to take away all the sharp edges so there’s no place for a crack to start the vent red looks good probably a little more cleaning up to do but on off decent shotgun I’m a pretty impressed with the with overall quality and workmanship on such a bargain again from the past I believe it holds five rounds in the magazine and one in the tube of course you want to put a plug in there if you’re using it for hunting or you know if you’d never intend to use it for that many shots it wouldn’t help to have a plug in there just in case somebody down the road decides to go ahead and you don’t to get in trouble most sports shooting you don’t need more than two or three shots anyways alright this is a round ham if you liked this video please click on the like button if you want to reference it for the future please click on favorite if you’d like to see more videos like this please click Subscribe if you want your friends to see please click share if you have any questions

BEWARE phantom grid draw with Tesla Powerwall 2 and a Smart Meter

In this video I’m going to highlight the grid power usage discrepancy between what the Tesla Powerwall 2 states has been used by our home from the grid and what the smart meter says has been used from our home from the grid The difference is huge…it’s a phantom draw phantom grid draw and it’s costing me money You too may have the same problem. So stay tuned Hi John here. First off this video is primarily aimed at people living in the UK. If you live outside the UK you may find it the following information useful however it’s unlikely to affect you. Getting to the nub of the problem when our Tesla Powerwall states that we have 100% Self-Powered for the previous day our electricity shows that we’ve imported 3kWh of electricity from the grid where it should be nothing Which means one of them is not telling the truth. This video explores my theory as to why that is, and which one’s at fault Since having a SMETS2 electric smart meter installed in July 2019 I’ve noticed a massive variance between what the Tesla Powerwall 2 states we have used from the grid each day and what we’ve actually consumed as recorded by the smart meter The highest variance I’ve recorded was 3880% Yes that’s right 3880% difference between the two figures The Tesla Powerwall stated we pulled 100 watts from the grid over a 24-hour period whereas we actually pulled 3.98kWh from the grid during that same period Over the past 12 months the average percentage difference between the two readings is 382%. The Tesla Powerwall 2 has been constantly under reporting the grid usage by an average of 382% Both data sets have never once agreed since the day of installation of the smart meter. So a faulty smart meter perhaps? Well it may be too easy to point at a faulty smart meter. I believe the problem is more deeply rooted than that The disturbing thing is that during my researchIi know that I’m not alone with this particular situation I know of at least 17 other people with the same symptoms I’m sure there are many many more that don’t know about this Hence the reason for making this video I wanted to explain the problem and raise awareness of the issue so we can collectively approach Tesla, and our respective energy suppliers with the facts and data More on that later on how we can support each other However one key way is to share this video and let others know that they are not alone. I’ve calculated that this data discrepancy is costing me around an extra £200 per year on my electricity bill. So it’s not an insignificant amount Others are seeing less variation in their figures and you know and there may be more people who are seeing more Hence this video to raise awareness and hopefully try and gauge the scale of the issue. It is worth stating that not all installations are seeing the same results as mine Some people iIve spoken to are seeing very accurate readings between what the Tesla Powerwall 2 states has been used from the grid and what their SMETS2 smart meter is showing So you know it’s all good there and really what you would expect to see from the installation. I’ve had the Tesla Powerwall 2 with Gateway 1 installed since December 2018 The SMETS2 smart meter was installed in July 2019. And before that we had an old fashioned type meter it had an electronic display but it was a dumb meter it only recorded import from the grid. With the old meter I never noticed the discrepancy in the data because I didn’t really have easy access to the data To get any data from it I would have had to physically go outside open the meter box cupboard and manually read the meter each day There was no option to look back at historic data where you could look at yesterday’s figures. This meant if I was going to record daily figures I had to do it every day at the same time each day come rain or shine. You can obviously see why this idea never got off the drawing board really The new smart meters are more accurate and are able to detect

a much lower level of grid usage compared to the old meters and they record additional parameters which we will cover in a moment So this is my setup. I have a single phase AC supply with 100 amp fuse It’s residential. Our DNO our Distribution Network Operator is Western Power Distribution We have smart meter which is a Landis + Gyr. I don’t know how you pronounce that apologies E470 Type 5424 SMETS2 meter installed on the 19th of July by E.ON. And it comes with a chameleon technology UK limited in-house display (IHD) We’ve got a single Tesla Powerwall battery with Gateway 1 and that was installed on the 4th of December 2018 by JoJu Solar Limited. We’ve got a myenergi zappi ev car charger, the version one, which was installed at the same time on the 4th of December 2018 but again by JoJu Solar Ltd We’ve got a myenergi eddi immersion heater which was installed on the 22nd of July 2019 Our solar arrays we have two we’ve got one which is a 4kW, comprises of 16 250 watts Sanyo PV panels with a 3.8kW SMA sunny boy inverter and that was installed on the 8th of September 2011 Our newer array is a 2.34kW comprising of six 390 watt sun power maxion 3 panels with a 2.2kW SolarEdge inverter which was installed on the 30th of October 2019 by Stratford Energy We’re on the Octopus Energy Agile tariff which has half hourly billing and we moved to that tariff on the 7th of July 2020 Previously to that we were on their fixed Go tariff which was from July 2019 when we joined them through to the 6th of July the day before we swapped to the Agile tariff We have a Tesla Model 3 Performance model and we have a Hyundai Kona 64 kW SE Premium model. And that’s our setup Let me show you the variations in the data sets I’ve taken a random 31 days of July 2020 as a sample data set to show you However, I could have easily picked any month over the past 12 months since the smet meter was installed and the results would be basically the same but it gives you a flavour of the data When we moved to the Agile tariff with Octopus energy on the 7th of July 2020 we moved to their half hourly billing. And this really increased my interest in watching and reviewing our half hourly house usage and grid usage So let me log on to the Octopus Energy online account to show you my day-to-day historic usage In the half hourly blocks and alongside that I’ll bring up the Tesla Powerwall 2 app so you can see and compare the data for each day To keep things sort of clean and simple on screen, I’ll only show you the grid data from the Tesla Powerwall app rather than all sources This will remove any sort of noise and allow you just to focus on the grid usage figures for each day As you can see there’s quite a variance between the two data sets Here’s a chart showing the differences between the two readings on a day-by-day basis for the same month of July 2020, that same data set The smart meter is represented in the blue column and the Tesla Powerwall data is the green column When we pull a large amount of grid energy the difference between the two figures is a lot lower when we pull very little

from the grid according to the Powerwall it produces the highest discrepancy between the two figures Look at the end of July, most days we were pulling 200 watts on the grid per day according to the Tesla Powerwall essentially running on excess solar during the day and the powerwall battery after the sun disappeared. But we’re still pulling around 3kWh each day from the grid according to the smart meter. 1500% difference between the two values Those figures hopefully demonstrate the problem. Does this resonate with you? Are you seeing the same variance to a lesser or greater number in your system? If you have a smart meter and a Tesla Powerwall 2 have you checked what your smart meter is stating you’ve pulled from the grid compared to what your Tesla Powerwall is saying that you have If not then it may be worth checking to just to see If you have checks and it’s yes and you have the variance in what the smart meter and the Powerwall app are saying then stay tuned to the end to learn how we can help each other Let’s have a look at some of the components of our system and consider whether they could be the cause of the problem. So the Tesla Gateway we’ve got the original Gateway 1 installed on our system. The latest version unsurprisingly is Gateway 2 I know people who have the Tesla Gateway 1 and others who have the Gateway 2 both versions experience the same data discrepancy and phantom grid draw ThereforeIi don’t believe the version the gateway has any significance in this The SMETS2 smart meter. Blaming a smart meter may feel like the obvious culprit and in many cases is probably the newest and last component to be installed on many people’s systems, e.g. it was okay before the smart meter was installed and I can understand that reasoning for pointing to the smart meter I believe the smart meter has allowed us to see the issue which has been there all the time the smart meter is more accurate easy to read and monitor historic usage it’s there for easy to track usage I know a couple of people who have had their energy suppliers come out and install a check meter to see if their smart meter is faulty in every case the smart meter has been 100% accurate and within its manufacturing standards and tolerances Certainly there’s going to be faulty smart meters out there with 17.4 million smart meter installations in the UK to date of which over 4 million are SMETS2 smart meters the numbers alone point to the fact that there will be a percentage of faulty or inaccurate meters However, I don’t think the smart meter is the problem here So let me talk you through my investigation so far a little bit of history on my case I first raised my phantom grid draw issue with my solar installer JOJU Solar back in July 2019 a few days after the SMETS2 smart meter was installed JOJU have been very helpful in terms of listening and they reached out to include Tesla, who in turn asked Octopus Energy to help with information about the SMETS2 smart meters. A case INQ20190729-049 was logged with Tesla and initially there was a flurry of activity requests for photos additional information to try and ascertain things And all of which I supplied and all of these things have covered in a previous video made back in October 2019. The link of that is sort of up there if you’re interested in watching that I’ve re-raised the case towards the end of the year in 2019, but since then I’ve heard nothing so at the end of July I re-re-raised the case and asked for a progress report At the time of making this video I’ve heard nothing. However, I’m not going away especially as I know others are in the same situation There’s a small ground swell of interest from those impacted users as more and more people are getting SMETS2 smart meters installed and Tesla Powerwalls the issue may become even more prevalent It’s fair to say that at this stage I’m still in a fact-finding mode Which means that this is ongoing from my perspective and what I’m recording today is the state of play as it is today the 11th of August 2020. This will undoubtedly change as I learn more, and disprove theories and hypotheses It’s also worth stating that I’m not electrical engineer and have a very basic limited knowledge of AC electrical systems If only Nikola Tesla was around. I’ve

created a report that details my situation to help explain to others so please feel free to download it. I’ve added a link to that in the description down below In terms of other users I’ve been conversing with sharing data and information over forums like the Tesla Motors Club forum and by email of a number of users who have the same issue One user Mike has been extremely active in trying to understand this problem and we’ve been sharing and pooling our findings and knowledge and data Mike has had a check meter installed by his energy supply EDF with EDF confirming that his SMETS2 smart meter is working perfectly is accurate and within specifications He’s also had confirmed that SMETS2 smart meters have the ability to record and report on additional parameters. And four of these parameters are the four power quadrants. And I believe these are of interest to us. These quadrants are Active Energy imported, Active Energy exported, Reactive Energy imported, and Reactive Energy exported Now just let’s back the truck up a bit and talk about those terms. I think probably most of us will be familiar with the Active Energy import and export You know that’s the amount of watts we import or export to and from the grid In the UK it’s often referred to as units, as in units of electricity. One unit equaling one kilowatt. Active Energy also known as True Power or Real Power is the actual amount of watts being dissipated or used by a circuit Very simply you turn on 100 watt light bulb and it consumes 100 watts of power That’s Active Energy, True Power or Real Power I’ve no idea why they have three names for the same thing! I’m surprised there’s no like Latin equivalent just to add even more complexity So what about Reactive Energy then what’s that all about Now apologies to any electrical engineers out there for this really simplistic explanation Please feel free to jump into the comments section down below if you can assist at some clarity and explanation for all us non-tech folk Reactive Power is also known as Useless Power, Wattless Power or Phantom Power That one has four names. Reactive devices like electric motors, transformers and capacitors will store some energy when a voltage is applied and they will return that energy later Think of a spring. When you compress a spring you put power into that spring and when you reduce or release the force such as voltage the spring will spring back. Returning the energy put into it no energy is absorbed by the spring Reactive loads return the same amount of energy put into them at a later point in time So let’s go back to the example of electric motor the reactive part of the power creates a magnetic field which then collapses and reforms in the opposite direction as the applied AC voltage goes through its cycle It is this magnetic field that provides the mechanical force between the two different parts of the motor resulting in the motor rotating. Only active power is consumed by the motor and only when the motor is actually spinning A simple analogy that I picked up during my research was if you consider a wheelbarrow then you must lift it up in order to move the goods forward. The lifting up doesn’t actually move the goods you need to do in order to move them can’t drag it on the ground So reactive power is the lifting up Real power, Active power as you push forwards moving the goods. And then Apparent Power is the entire effort. New term Apparent Power The combination of Reactive Power and Real Power is your Apparent Power. Now historically before domestic SMETS2 smart meters only industrial sites and large businesses needed to worry about reactive power If there was a large amount of power being wasted more current needs to flow to provide the same output. This puts additional strain on the distribution network potentially increasing the costs for the Distribution Network Operator to supply electricity To encourage business customers to improve their electricity efficiency or electrical efficiency all Distribution Network Operators apply reactive power charges if a customer’s average power factor, I’ll cover this term in a minute, over the billing month is below a

certain level. Normally below 0.95 they will apply a charge In a modern domestic home there are more and more electrical items that have components that could use reactive power. Fridges, freezers, solar inverters, Tesla Powerwalls, potentially any item that either has a transformer, a motor, or a capacitor in it could pull reactive power depending on how inefficient it is Could it be that reactive power problem is now starting to impact domestic homes because SMETS2 smart meters can record reactive power are we being charged for it? I don’t know but it’s certainly a question that needs to be explored Let let me come back to Power Factor for a minute. The last term to cover actually So Power Factor is an expression of energy efficiency and it’s usually expressed as a percentage. The lower the percentage the less effective power usage is. A power factor of 1 1.0 when the voltage and current are in phase anything less than one is considered inefficient So for instance a power factor of 68% or 0.68 means that only 68% of the total current supplied is actually doing any work the remaining 32% is reactive and has to be made up by the utility company As you can see here in this video that my Power Factor is very very low the values keep fluctuating as the load on the house changes This was filmed at 4 30pm on a Thursday. The house load was about 1.9kWh 1kWh was being supplied by solar, excess sola,l and the balance supplied by the Powerwall. There was no pull from the grid. Mike who I referred to earlier has pulled the Powerwall API data and has seen the reactive power import and export figures shown in that data Again it’s constantly changing minute by minute but you know but it’s there as you can see power factor and reactive power are linked We need to strive for a power factor of 1 which results in less reactive power Remember the spring analogy, reactive power will be imported and exported and recorded by the smart meter. This I believe potentially is a problem that requires further investigation If we import and export reactive energy it will balance itself out however because I’m not being credited for any export. I can’t balance the financial side of things I did find a note on Octopus Energy’s Business Terms and Conditions I’ll bring it up so you can see. Section 5 Charges 5.5 we shall pass through to you any cost incurred for reactive energy and excess capacity levied on us by our network operator. I’ve emailed them on the 6th of August to ask whether I’m being billed for reactive power or based on my power factor. As I record this, you know, I don’t know if domestic customers are being charged for reactive power I said about not being able to balance the financials I’m on the Octopus Agile tariff with that tariff you cannot have a SEG a Smart Export Guarantee which makes sense electricity unit rates are very very low in the first place. This means that I’m sort of being billed for what I import from the grid but cannot gain payment or credit for any export However, I guess that clouds the issue slightly. The real problem is that I shouldn’t be importing the amount of electricity from the grid that i am. When according to the Tesla Powerwall app that I’m running off grid or to put it another way self-powered I should not be importing 3kWh of power from the grid and that’s the root of the problem So is it that the Tesla Powerwall factor is low and therefore inefficient. Looking at the technical specs of the Powerwall it states that the power factor range is 1.0. Which is very good and it’s adjustable plus and minus However, I do not know what the line below it means power factor range for rated power so do let me know in the comments below if you know what that means So what are my next steps? My next line of inquiry is to understand from Octopus Energy whether we’re being charged for reactive

power From Tesla I need to get an update on my case I’ve also asked them what my power factor is for the home and for the Tesla Powerwall But how can you help? Firstly, by sharing this video. If we can get the message out there to fellow Powerwall users and SMETS2 smart meter users that would be awesome Your likes, comments, and shares all help to get this video to a wider audience which is vital To help get this message out if the things I’ve talked about you know resonate with you and your experience with the Tesla Powerwall 2 and the SMETS2 smart meter and do let me know in the comments below As I mentioned earlier being able to approach this with data being able to show that many other people are having the same problem gives us a much better chance of being heard and getting some traction on the issue Your phantom power drain needs you Okay, I’ll see you in the next video Thanks for watching. Take care Bye
