Did EVERYTHING just change??????
#1
So I am in the early stages of building my own powerwall.  Thanks to all of you for valuable information on this site.   My project it taking a little while because....lets face it.... I do things the hard way for the sake of fun.

I will still build my wall.  Its actually in the early stages and moving along slowly but surely.  Testing cells, 3D printing cell holders, preparing a network rack for containment...

The Change:

On November 21st, within minutes of the unveiling, I ordered a CyberTruck.   I think this may be a game changer.   This is a huge powerwall on wheels!  They have not released the actual battery specs yet.  But, what do you think?  100KWH???   I'm guessing on that.....   The truck is going to have 110/220 outlets on it.  Unknown amperage rating on the inverter but Elon did say it is for tools.  So 15 amps at least.... Probably 20.

Now I am thinking that my home powerwall should be nothing more than an energy storage buffer.  Get about 4000 watts of solar panels, a 3000 watt Victron inverter, and have about 10KWH powerwall storage buffer just to charge the truck.

Just to so everyone understands, I live in a household with 2 driving adults.   We already have 2 practical internal combustion vehicles.  The CyberTruck is intended to be a 3rd vehicle that spends most of its time in the garage.  So charging at a slow rate is a non-issue.  It would be used whenever a truck is required, and for travel when the 6 seats are needed (we have 4 kids combined).

What do you all think?  Game changer?
