Nope, you have to let them glue it back on with their mobile repair unit.

The Model 3 and Model X got range increases of 20 - 30 miles this week, I think related to use of Tesla's heat-pump/octavalve.
This is an efficiency improvement and not more battery capacity. It will come into play in winter when heating related losses have been most evident.

Model X LR+ now 371 miles
Model 3 SR+ now 263 miles
Model 3 LR/AWD now 353 miles

The increased EPA range is hard to understand at first blush since summer range is +/- unchanged. It occurs because Tesla uses the full 5 cycle EPA protocol which includes cold weather testing rather than the 2 cycle with a steep discount for untested conditions. My estimate is that the Model 3 LR/AWD now has 300 miles of all season* range at 65 - 70 mph.

Outstanding achievement. Oh yeah, and the Model 3 LR dropped in price too.

Some neat graphs here on Tesla batteries under some longer term lab tests. Good results. Maybe stay clear of 250KW charging (3-4C), as that's the only place it looks choppy.

This validates slower charges and shallow discharges.

What's 250kW/h charging?

Watts are joules per second, so 1000 joules per second per hour makes no sense. Would be like saying miles per hour per hour.

Actually, "miles per hour per hour" is one way you could quantify acceleration - at least in the US.

True, now that I think about it.

As a co-worker and I discussed before, actually kW/h could make sense in the context of a power plant ramp up speed. If you had say a megawatt plant, how quickly could you ramp it up to 1 megawatt of output.
