KmanAuto tests out the first liquid-cooled (cable) Tesla Superchargers and provides thermal imagery.
This Supercharger is in Mountain View, California, which is home of the first liquid-cooled version.
It is claimed that these new Superchargers will cut down charging times. If they stay a little cooler than a non-liquid cooled Supercharger, it could theoretically charge a bit quicker, right?
Elon Musk comments that liquid-coiling “also has the potential for increased power of the Supercharger long-term.”
The video below briefly discusses these new Superchargers at the 24-minute mark, at Tesla's annual stockholder meeting:
