We have not heard much about the battery capacities and voltage for the Cybertruck. Obviously they're going to be larger than any battery on current models, so that brings up the question of charging one at home overnight.

Will Tesla sell a home DC charger for level 3 charging? (Expensive...)
Will they instead return to dual on-board AC chargers for high-power level 2 charging? Model S used to have 80A charging through dual chargers. The HPWC I have for my Model 3 (installed in Fall 2017) is capable of delivering 80A at 240V (although I set it up for 48A at 240V, since that's the max for my Model 3).
The latest HPWC from Tesla is listed as delivering at most 40A at 240V -- that just won't do for the Cybertruck, since it would take 20h to charge a 180KWh battery (and the trimotor version is sure to have at least that much).
Surely Tesla is not planning to force us to rely on commercial level 3 chargers? I have a big solar array and my Model 3 has never been charged outside my garage, using totally emission-free energy. Using commercial chargers would be a huge step backwards.

Hope to be able to charge from the optional solar panel on the CT. I don’t drive many miles during the week so I hope that can sustain my charging needs 80% of the time. I faster charger to make up the deficit will be nice for sure.
