    Tesla battery swap: Post announcement discussion

    Given the number of pre-announcement threads, the mods discussed having one place to discuss things post announcement.

    I'd also like to see a "conjecture" subforum generally. So we can consolidate of the theory threads somewhere separately from the fact and discussion of fact threads.

    Great idea. There is tons of conjecture and debate over whether what they are doing is "right" or not Would be great to keep that away from discussions actual owners are having about their cars!

    I'm still not getting this. Under what scenario would I consider doing this kind of thing with my battery assuming it is functioning normally?

    You're in a situation where you don't want to wait for a Supercharge to complete. Perhaps a very long-distance road trip.
