Tesla Battery Loss Over 86 Hours With Sentry Mode On

This is a worst-case scenario but still worth noting. Sentry Mode was on for this whole test. Our garage averaged temperatures between mid-50Fs to low-60Fs. This is a scenario many apartment dwellers may face because they want to protect their ass-et with the built-in dashcam! Let’s take a look at the Tesla Battery Loss.

I am writing this article with a new favorite non-dairy, plant-based coffee creamer, made with macadamias & coconut cream. It seems to be a healthier option compared to regular coffee creamer and being dairy free is awesome.
