My brother was in the area yesterday and called in to look at one after closing time; somone came out and offered him a test drive, even though he explained he couldn't afford to buy one. He plans to take up the offer though!

Wall mounted, rechargeable lithium ion battery with liquid thermal control.
Models
10 kWh $3,500
For backup applications
7 kWh $3,000
For daily cycle applications
Warranty
Ten year warranty with an optional ten year extension.
Efficiency
92% round-trip DC efficiency
Power
2.0 kW continuous, 3.3 kW peak
Voltage
350 – 450 volts
Current
5 amp nominal, 8.5 amp peak output
Compatibility
Single phase and three phase utility grid compatible.
Operating Temperature

That's $428 US - kwh I guess it includes some kind of a inverter and other things but not a ground breaking price drop for stationary storage. You would need 3 of them to run a average house totally.

No inverter is included with it. As I just posted in antoher Lithium thread, the 43C top operating temperature could be a problem.

That pricing isn't retail- it will be a whole lot more by the time it gets here, although once the Gigafactory is operating at full production, I'd hope the price would come down a fair bit.

Yes the Au price wont be a simple exchange rate conversion it will be more than the US list price like the cars.

Yes I was saying it has a inverter and other accessory in the package. Though given its only a 3kw inverter pr unit at exchange rate comparisons it works out at over 10k for three of them (20kwh) and I guess 9kwh of inverter potential? Would be nice to know what the inverter can do . I assume its just a grid tie style inverter?

Ten year warranty with an optional ten year extension
. that part sounds promising :)

You must be reading a different press release ;)

The Powerwall is available in 10kWh, if wanted for backup applications, or 7kWh if optimised for daily use applications. Tesla says it will sell these batteries to installers for $US3,500 for 10kWh and $US3,000 for the 7kWh.
This excludes the price of inverters and installation.

It will consist of a lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system and software that receives dispatch commands from a solar inverter. It can be mounted on the wall and is integrated with the local grid.

Indeed- looks to be solely aimed at grid-connected - load-shifting and backup/UPS market.

An opportunity lost. Keep the Tesla on Earth and shoot all VW executives into space.
