In Europe almost all cars have the same charge plug so no adapters needed. Plan will be (from what we can glean from Elons twitter) install Tesla app, link creditcard, select supercharger you’re at, confirm via app, charge. Which is identical to any other charger (for most of which you also need a card or app for). Not ideal, and contactless payment is indeed preferable, but since no charger has this built in yet (and it would cost a lot to change this) this will not happen

Also lots of german legislation about that makes this quite hard… words to break your tongue on: Eichrecht, Ladesäulenverordnung. Both are currently mostly just being ignored by tesla.

Maybe this is commonly known-about, but this is the first I've herd of "solid state hydrogen":

First, the problem where the hydrogen comes from is still there. Then there is manufacturing and recycling miles of plastic film. How much CO2 does that produce on top of the production of the hydrogen? What other toxins are produced?

Also, why recycle the film when it is still 98% effective? That seems to be a waste.

Honestly, that will never go away, since there are so many more uses for (green!) hydrogen, that are much more valuable (and thus: willing to pay) than moving a car around…
