Looking at the specs, I think they all come standard with 50 kW charging with 150 kW optional. Will this be upgradable to the 350 kW charging they advertise?

I think its two different things. At 800v/350 KW chargers it charges at 300 or so, the option is to allow faster charging on the 400volt 150W chargers.

This should help in understanding the difference between charging in a 400-volt environment with the use of the On-Board DC-Charger and charging in an 800-volt environment.

I was reading an article that said in US any charger that Can do faster than 50W supports 800v charging, so theoretically Taycan should not need the 400->800 adapter for 150W charging.

I think I am understanding that when I see a ccs fast charger with 50kw capability, the optional 50 to 150 kw capability does no good; or at least is not shown on the app. Is that correct?

The 150Kw converter option ONLY applies IF a 150KW capable fast charger operates at 400v NOT at 800v. If you do not have the converter than you can only charge at 50 KW at any 400v fast charger, even if it can operate at higher KW rates. If the fast charger is capable of 800v it will still deliver the max it can with or without that option.

So option only allows >50KW chargers that are 400 v to be used at their fastest rates. It seems most faster than 50KW chargers are 800v capable.

I read somewhere the 50KW charger cannot be upgraded afterwards. As usual it should be standard like the tire compressor but isn't.
