    Supercharger - Sammamish, WA - Issaquah Pine Lake Rd (pre-application, 8 V4)

    Any idea where this pin should go? Google takes me to the Madison Sammamish Apartments.

    Supercharger - Burlington, WA - 9400 Old Hwy 99 N. (under construction Nov 2023, 16 V4 stalls)

    Looks like the site still needs final inspection from the county.

    Looks like you got a response from Elon and Tesla Charging.

    Supercharger - Honolulu, HI - Kahala Resort (12 stalls)

    Based on your X post, it looks like you ended up waiting in line far longer than 30 minutes. The charging situation on Oahu is pretty rough right now. I’m surprised the valet didn’t offer to move a car out of a charging spot so they could accommodate you. It might be helpful to provide...

    Supercharger - Yarmouth, NS

    There are quite a few locations being installed like this in the US. I think it makes it easier for non-Teslas to charge and also reduces the likelihood of damage from getting backed into.

    Made it home from our ~5,000 mile road trip to Texas last night around 11pm. Mostly a repeat of the route we took south, but managed to grab a few new ones. I would have meandered around some more but we have a boat trip this weekend and I have stuff to do today. Next trip: Custer in May! This...

    Charge rate goes down steadily

    This is completely normal charging behavior. The fastest charging occurs at lower states of charge.

    Charging battery properly

    Is 50% or less enough range to get you where you need to go in the event of an emergency or unexpected event? I typically leave our cars set to 80% and plug them in when I’m down to 50-60%.

    M3P battery draining while traveling overseas long term (Sentry has been off)

    Considering how large this forum and how many people are willing to help others, you probably could have found someone local on here who could have charged the car for you. Probably too late for that now, but worth mentioning for future reference.

    10th Annual Sound of Silence Tesla Rally in Custer SD May 17-19 2024 ACTIVE THREAD

    I just booked our stay at the Bavarian Inn. Working on registering for the event now. See you all on May 17th! I see there is a new Thursday night meet-up. It’s unlikely I’ll be able to make this, but we’ll see.

    Pretty great trip so far. We saw the eclipse, including totality, from our hot tub in Del Rio, Texas. There was quite a bit of cloud cover but we got several clear spots throughout the event.

    Slow L2 Charging on Emporia EVSE

    24 amps * 236 volts = 5,664 Watts, or just a bit over 5 kW. The car rounds this to the nearest thousand for display in the app. I’m a little surprised that it didn’t round up to 6 kW. Regardless, what you’re experiencing is perfectly normal for a 30-amp dryer circuit.

    Ideal SOC for long term storage

    50%. Set it, plug it in and forget it.

    Total eclipse charging in Texas

    Here are some pics from Fort Stockton on Sunday. I was seventh in line when I arrived and waited about an hour. The line grew quickly from there, with 15+ people waiting by the time I left. The new Ozona charger wasn’t on the nav or app, so it had several stalls available while the old...

    Supercharger - Burlington, WA

    The equipment at this site isn’t in the best shape. I suspect it will be decommissioned or replaced once the new site opens - hopefully the latter.

    Supercharger - Ozona, TX - 14th St

    Heading here next. I’m at Fort Stockton now - waited an hour to get a charger. Currently 12 cars in line.

    Double Pull Selection Deactivated with FSD, Cruise Control not available.

    Currently on a 5,000 mile road trip. FSD is doing great except in bad weather when it gets upset. Second profile with AP/TACC instead of FSD is working great.

    3040 Parks is the Three Bears location to the east. I’ve updated the supercharge.info location and changed the site name to Fairbanks.

    M3P battery draining while traveling overseas long term (Sentry has been off)

    No friends, family or coworkers in Chicago who can pay a visit to your car? Are you running any third party monitoring services like TeslaFi, Tezlab, Optiwatt, etc? Try changing your Tesla password to see if that stops the phantom drain.
  30. Big Earl

    Would it be O.K to leave Model 3 unplugged for 5 weeks?

    If you aren’t running third party apps or sentry mode, expect a loss of 1% per week or less.

    Sentry mode power requirement

    Is this a multi-tenant garage? Not sure why you’d have sentry mode on in your own garage. I only use it in situations here I think there is a reasonable possibility of the car getting damaged - tight parking lots, sketchy places in a city, etc. It isn’t a viable option for long-term parking...

    Supercharger - Issaquah, WA - Gilman Blvd. (permit Feb 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    Good catch on the design load. Doubling-up on the cabinets wouldn't be possible without a transformer twice the size.

    OT: Cost to Install Single Zone Mini Split

    I installed a Mr. Cool 4th Gen DIY unit, 27,000 BTU/hr compressor with two indoor heads (18k and 9k) for just under $5,000 including equipment, permit fees and miscellaneous materials. A basic 12,000 BTU/hr unit costs $1k - $2k depending on brand. If you can install yourself, you'll save...

    Supercharger - Issaquah, WA - Gilman Blvd. (permit Feb 2022, 16 V3 stalls)

    I count 8 Supercharger cabinets. That means this site is either 32 stalls OR they're doubling up the cabinets in order to meet NEVI's requirement of 150 kW simultaneous on all stalls. If the latter, which I suspect, this will be the first instance of this in North America (public installations...

    Supercharger - Blaine, WA - Boblett St

    It is not. The "feeders" are the main conductors (wires) feeding the stalls. Not sure what of fixing needs to be done but I highly doubt it'll be software.

    Supercharger - Shoreline, WA (Under Construction Aug 2023, 12 V3 stalls)

    The concrete pad itself supports the transformer. The metal tray around the pad is HAZMAT containment in the event the transformer ever leaks oil. I’ve never seen this type of containment used for a utility transformer, and I’ve never seen a transformer leak oil. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Supercharger - Honolulu, HI - Kahala Resort (12 stalls)

    Supercharger - Honolulu, HI - Kahala Resort (12 stalls)

    The wording on the sign says $6 for every 20 minutes without validation, so the answer is yes. 20-40 minutes would cost $12.
