    Supercharger - Bothell, WA

    This is definitely off topic but you have a few options: 1: get two of the current HPWCs and install them to use the "load sharing" option. replace the connector for one with a J1772. QuickCharge Power will do this for you for a price. this will allow you to charge both cars simultaneously...

    Superchargers visited 3.0

    I give up. The new spreadsheet scheme is unusably slow for me. Please add the following 4 for me: Auburn WA (early Dec) Red Bluff CA (23 Dec) Williams CA (23 Dec) Daly City CA (30 Dec) -Snortybartfast (aka "snort")

    Supercharger - Moses Lake, WA

    Don't forget traffic headed towards (or from) The Dalles. Cle Elum <=> The Dalles is 161 hilly miles. It's easy from Ellensburg, but sketchy from Cle Elum. Yakima solves that problem too. -Snortybartfast

    Report Says Tesla Pickup is More Talked About Than Ford's F-150

    Once upon a time I think this was true, but it hasn't been for at least 20 years. The majors have wind-tunnels and computational fluid dynamics, and they've managed to extend the area of stalled air behind the cab so that the tailgate is part of it and helps keep it stable, so it contributes a...

    Report Says Tesla Pickup is More Talked About Than Ford's F-150

    Please Elon and Franz, make it a truck, not an SUV with a miniature box and no good way to carry lumber or attach a contractor rack. The F150 is popular because it's a real truck, usable by people who actually do things. Yes, lots of F150s are bought by people who want to be mistaken for...

    Tesla Pickup Truck

    Hear Hear! Tesla seems to be going all in on appearance, neck snapping performance and carrying lots of people. That's fine and a popular segment but it's not the only one. If I'm carrying a stack of lumber or pipes, or a refrigerator or something, it's worse than useless. Now Rivian comes...

    Tesla Sailboat

    Many ships built in the last decade or two have been diesel electric. For example, recent passenger liners use a device called an Azipod, which is an electric motor and propeller in a pod that hangs below the hull, and can be turned in any direction to go forwards, backwards, steer, go...

    FAQ: Home Tesla charging infrastructure Q&A

    I think thatoneguy was also asking whether the 14-50 can be daisy-chained into the HPWC V2 load-sharing scheme. The answer is no. The 14-50 is a dumb outlet. The HPWC V2 has a load sharing scheme that will give all the power to one HPWC if none of the others are asking, but will split the...

    Supercharger - Laytonville, CA (LIVE Jun 28, 2019, 8 stalls)

    (FYI, the specific gravity of platinum is 21.45 and the current price is $834/oz. So a million dollars worth of platinum weighs about 75 lbs and has a volume of a little over 1.5 liters. Unless it's deployed as a drogue parachute or something, it won't impact your range noticeably, although you...

    <redacted> So Dissapointed

    He may have been doing it because he wanted the quiet time reading the newspaper. If home or office is noisy or distracting, an hour or two in the car may be just what he needs. The free charging may have just been a bonus. -Snortybartfast

    Supercharger - Seattle, WA - Union Street

    For this particular charger, traffic is central to its usability. 30 years ago, the city chose to put a convention center on top of and next to a freeway that was already nearing its capacity limits, preventing further expansion of the freeway without condemning the convention center and a...

    <redacted> So Dissapointed

    While the verbal abuse was out of line, he has a sort-of legitimate complaint. Upton to the western parts of LA (e.g. Beverly Hills) is 50 miles and there aren't any superchargers particularly close to the natural route...the nearest is Glendale, more than 10 miles off-route in the wrong...

    Supercharger - Seattle, WA - Union Street

    PLUS EV, your point is essentially correct, that Tesla could probably have served more people by building at the malls at the north and south ends of town. Lynnwoood and Southcenter. One is open already; I imagine the other is coming soon. BB though is right about the neighborhood atlas...

    Supercharger - Corning (6 V2 stalls)

    The Sunday afternoon after Thanksgiving this year, the wait to charge at Corning was about an hour. I was #6 when I entered the line; more cars entered to keep it that long until I left almost 2 hours later. Fortunately, all 8 chargers, including both portables, seemed to be working...
