The modules operate at temperatures from minus 20 to plus 43 degrees Celsius. Part of me did not have to – Tesla Motors gives the 10-year warranty. And agree fairly long battery life.
Conclusion of the Powerwall
The Powerwall new battery has good performance characteristics. The company Tesla Motors is going on in their product segments. And surprisingly, the inventors of the Tesla Motors will come up in the future? The price of the battery will be $ 3,000 for 7 kWh. Option 10 kWh will cost 3500 USD.
