Teslas are already cool enough, but when Elon Musk teased the ‘snake’ charger a while back, it was too much. We almost hoped he was just kidding, but no — he wasn’t. The snake is real, and it’s amazing.
Btw, we are actually working on a charger that automatically moves out from the wall & connects like a solid metal snake. For realz.

The snake charger is meant to sit in your garage, like a Cobra waiting for a Tesla it can strike. Once your car is in position and the charger cap is open, the snake gets to work.
Ever been to a tech festival?
TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.
Snake (I don’t know what Tesla is naming it, but I like Snake — or ‘Eel’, since those are also electric) is currently in testing, so don’t expect this to be up for grabs any time soon. Still, it’s the coolest thing we’ve ever seen for electric cars.
This is why we all love Tesla; cool products we can actually have (someday). Now if they’d hurry up with that $35,000 Model 3, I’d be set.
