Folks...please...I think most of you here intuitively understand the difference between kW and kWh. (kW = Instantaneous Power vs. kWh = Energy Capacity).

A 600 kW battery that can deliver that rated *power* for 10 minutes is a 100 kWh *capacity* battery.

Ya, Elon is playing games with his numbers, deliberately, IMO.

Having worked in the electric biz for 30+ years, this mis-terminology rubs me wrong. Many people don't get the difference.

I'm just sayin'. Watch out for game playing with the numbers.
