Tesla Cybertruck has pleased consumers with several new features that expand the possibilities for its use. One of these is bidirectional charging, called Powershare. and is the first time Tesla has included bidirectional charging in its cars.

The new feature promises to redefine the electric vehicle landscape, offering vehicle-to-load (V2L), vehicle-to-home (V2H), and even vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) capabilities. As explained by the manufacturer, Cybertrucks equipped with Powershare technology have onboard electronics that unlock the battery’s ability to provide power whenever you need it. If you need to power a construction site, a pre-game tailgate, another electric vehicle, or your home during an outage, your Tesla vehicle with Powershare has your back.

Powershare V2L functionality allows Cybertruck to power equipment through outlets located in the vehicle. You can use various construction tools, or even consumer electronics such as a coffee machine, while camping. Additionally, access to outlets can provide emergency assistance if needed. Cybertruck has a continuous power output of 9.6 kW through five outlets.

Cybertruck’s V2H system takes bidirectional charging to the next level. It offers an impressive power output of 11.5 kW. This feature allows Cybertruck to serve as a power source for homes during outages or network instability. In recent years, as we observe climate change, such an opportunity is extremely necessary. You probably would not use it often, but if you happen to need it, you will get it with Cybertruck. Tesla said Powershare can power a home for more than three days, assuming an average daily consumption of 30 kWh. This is an impressive result, highlighting the usefulness of the feature and Cybertruck.

Connection to your home is via a wall connector so you do not need any additional equipment. When connected to your home, you get a massive energy storage unit using Cybertruck’s battery capacity. It will work like Powerwall, Tesla’s home energy storage solution. Powerwalls have repeatedly proven their usefulness during power outages in various events.

Cybertruck’s ability to charge other electric vehicles is also extremely useful. The electric pickup truck can “share” its charge with other electric vehicles if the need arises. This may be especially true when you are away from charging stations. Although electric vehicle owners usually think through their routes, unforeseen situations do happen. While they can access the grid while in cities or towns, they do not have this opportunity while camping. This is where Cybertruck can come to the rescue, recharging an electric vehicle in need.

The appearance of V2V charging in Cybertruck also hints that such a capability will be integrated into future Tesla models. This will further expand the manufacturer’s ecosystem, making electric vehicles a strong pillar of it.

These are absolutely THE BEST brakes (https://www.instagram.com/p/CveWNmjvKwT/) They work flawlessly lap after lap with it's nonstop stopping power, they will last forever. Incredible value for money and Highly recommend to anyone considering using their Tesla for both track and street.
I have a Tesla Model 3 LR but the rep at UP accidentally ordered the MY listing instead which is the same since both M3 and MY share most parts including struts. Purchased as the roads in DC just aren't very pleasant and combined with Tesla's stock struts, it's pretty horrendous. Delivery took...
Significantly improved feel from this suspension kit. Don't forget yo get camber adjustments and springs that make this suspension upgrade feel like a whole new car!
The Willans Safety Harness kit along with the Ascension-R Racing seat just arrived from Unplugged Performance (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8f-5cvDuE/) The 6-point Harness kit goes hand in hand with the design of the racing seat. It looks absolutely well made and high quality making it a must have...
I had my Coilovers installed by NV Auto in Hamilton Canada. They did a good job and I now have a great ride. After about a month of driving I went one step further and put new 18” rims and tires on. This really improved the ride and is is a joy to drive my Tesla again. Thanks unplugged...
I purchased a set of these Sway bars along with a few other upgrade components for my Model 3 (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8c-F2PEYP) The sway bars improve the ride quality, reduced body roll making the car more rigid and stable. Installation and setup was easy, being adjustable is an added bonus....
Excellent product from a great team with great customer service! The factory Model 3 Performance's suspension is rather underwhelming, so once you add the Dual Rate Linear Springs along with the Sway Bar kit and Luxury Suspension Kit it completely transforms the car! UP also stands by their...
The pictures on the website does not do justice. the wheels look extremely beautiful. Kirk was extremely helpful, and coordination was amazing. My wheels are gloss black, not able to add a picture to the review if not would do it. I went with slightly bigger wheels 20x10.5 front and 20X11 back. ...
This is by far the best front fascia out there and its makes the Model 3 look so much better! It gives it a much sportier look and I get comments on it all the time. One of the simplest upgrades that makes a huge difference as far as the look of the car goes. Couldn't be happier with how it looks....
These wheels are insanely light and strong! And, they look the bomb! If I didn’t look while picking them up, I would have thought they are carbon fiber! The same spec as was originally used on the Bionic Phoenix Model 3 race car! I put in my fastest time at Buttonwillow on these wheels...
Bought the shock and it works great. Definitely recommend for Model Y owners on limited budget.
Tight on turns and soft on bumps--the mild springs seemed like the best option for folks who want to keep the vehicle as close to stock as possible while simultaneously improving the vehicle ride quality.
This brace was an amazing upgrade for my car. I added the UP rear sway bar first then the full UP suspension then this Strut Tower Brace. I feel this completed the feel i was looking for. The cars back end feels so solid while cornering and over the bumpys feels so solid too. A noticeable...
This Ascension-R Racing seat just arrived from Unplugged Performance (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8f-5cvDuE/) It looks absolutely well manufactured, high quality and lightweight making it a must have accessory on any Tesla going to the track! Looks stunning and well designed!!
Who likes shredded tires? Nobody! Fix the wonky camber on early Model S vehicles with this easy upgrade.
These springs were the first real mod I’d ever done to my Tesla and I’m so happy with the way they turned out. They really complete the look on my model 3. And I was surprised to find you don’t sacrifice anything in terms of ride comfort by adding them. The only problem is that now that I’ve...
WIFE APPROVED!!! I have a 2018 Model 3 LR AWD with the stock 18" wheels. I've always felt that the ride was a bit stiff and jittery with the stock suspension. Looking around for a solution, I came across coil-over kits which were expensive and I really didn't think I would need the adjustability...

Perfect companion product for the luxury suspension kit. An absolute must have for those who modify the springs of their vehicle.
