Hello Roadster owners,
who would like to try out a prototype battery pack constructed with the new Panasonic 3.1Ah 18650 cell? I guestimate that current ESS uses 2.2Ah cells, so this should increase range from 245 miles to 345 miles at the same weight.
If yes, would you to back to TESLA and ask for such a pack to be made available to you? Maybe in a "friendly user" field test program? This surely would help collecting real world data with the new Panasonic cell. By the time Model S hits the road, some super high capacity / super light weight battery pack would be available.
