Tesla has increased the energy capacity of its commercial Megapack battery storage, now showing 3.9 MWh on its website.

Speculation is Tesla may be leveraging lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery cells in these new Megapacks, as seen in the company’s entry Model 3 and Model Y vehicles.
LFP batteries are able to be charged to 100% and are cheaper to produce. They also do not have nickel or cobalt and are also seen as more stable and safer.
One Tesla Megapack is priced at $2,414,070 USD and can be ordered with a $5,000 USD non-refundable deposit.
