Warm SuperCharger Cable in Cold (Implemented)

21
Now Implemented!

Description

When it is very cold, the Supercharger cable becomes stiff from the cold and is hard to maneuver into a charge port. Suggest adding a heating wire into the Supercharger cable, and turning it on when a Model S gets near to the cable. This could make the cable more flexible and easier to manage.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Suggested by Opafiets in the Tesla Motors forum.

Status

A new thin liquid cooled/heated Supercharger cable was released in June-2015 at the Mountain View, CA Supercharger. New Superchargers will get this new design.
