    Is HPC really Roadster specific? I thought it applied to the Model S as well.

    The Model S Options page discusses the "High Power Wall Connector" (HPWC), whereas the Roadster has the HPC ("High Power Connector"). If I've got that wrong, though, let's change it!

    I added some.

    I put in 'Supercharger' to go along with CHAdeMO even though it isn't an acronym.
    Do you guys think it makes sense to have it here, or should we leave it off?

    We took to calling the Model S version 'HPC2' for a while. Not sure if Tesla ever called it that themselves though...

    This Roadster page:
    High Power Wall Connector (charging, high power connector, hpc) Tesla Motors
    is titled "High Power Wall Connector", but the URL itself is just "high power connector".
    ...The High Power Wall Connector is the fastest way to charge your Roadster and ideal to install in your garage...
    Further on that page, they refer to it as just the "Home Connector".

    Another Roadster HPWC page:
    High Power Wall Connector | Charging Solutions | Tesla Motors

    So, I don't think HPWC is Model S specific... Rather I think they (somewhat) interchangeably used HPC & HPWC to describe the same thing. And also use HPWC for both Roadster and Model S even though there are two different products designed for those different vehicles.

    Model S charging page:
    Charging Model S | Tesla Motors
    ...A High Power Wall Connector is installed on a 240 volt circuit...
    I went ahead and edited and took out mention of HPC for Roadster + HPWC for Model S since I don't think that is a correct description/delineation. With the right adapter, old HPC/HPWC can be used with Model S anyways...

    This is 'weird'... Check out this unfinished page:
    Charging Model S | Tesla Motors

    Nice Job guys!

    Nema references too?

    And maybe link some of the acronyms to wiki sources - thinking CHAdeMO, etc.

    But there is no such corporation -- it's Tesla Motors, Inc.
    The confusion between TM and TMC was actually what launched me on to this project in the first place.

    How about a "slang" category. "Perf" is used a lot and even knowing about the performance car my brain automatically thinks "perforation" and made me think they were ordering a Model S with perforated leather seats! Then Blue Star, White Star, etc could be added just as an area where newbies could learn the various terminology used here.

    No TMI, is what our teenagers use in texting/tweeting = Too Much Information.

    But you probably knew that already.
