    NRMA fast charging network

    Four parking spots and four cables, but two stalls. Plugshare entry suggests both CCS2/CHAdeMO, but hopefully at least one is dual CCS2

    NRMA fast charging network

    NRMA to add two new stalls in Lithgow at council Eskbank St carpark. Attached docs suggest ABB Terra 184 units. https://ourplaceourfuture.lithgow.com/lithgow-ev-charging-stations/

    Superchargers in Australia

    So in the coming week (starting 18 June) we've got V4 upgrades at Tenterfield, Wagga Wagga and Wollongong, and possibly an activation at Taree

    Out of whack AC pricing

    Noted this one at a hotel in Newcastle.. great they have installed 9 charging points. But with all the add-ons would work out at $0.90-1.05/kWh (for 11-7kW speeds)

    Supercharger - Taree, NSW

    Not that I'm aware of.. The other EV charger vandalism has been mostly smashed screens and plugs. V2/V3 superchargers had the advantage of no screen and a plug that could barely reach the floor. V4s a little different, though the screen is still pretty small. Fully striped copper cable is...

    ChargeFox EV charging Network

    For those who have to use the Chargefox app to start (no RFID) probably a better chance.

    ChargeFox EV charging Network

    A nice update to Chargefox app.

    And stalks, ultra sonic sensors, rear cross path sensors, servicing, dealership add-ons. Seeing a pattern?

    Best child seats for Model Y (Australia)

    Plenty of posts on the various FB forums about three across in both the 3 and Y. But you definitely need slimline seats to fit three. Britax Graphene seems a common choice.

    Supercharger - Taree, NSW

    My only other thought was maybe the person meant Woy Woy, albeit possibly a bit south for that contractor.

    Jolt EV charging network

    Or lives close by. Gets in car checks and hits reserve then drives straight to charger. Anyhow did a session later in the day and noticed that the car slowed below 22kW above 75% which I hadn't seen before. Was down to about 16kW at 80%. I haven't seen that behaviour before (possibly latest...

    Supercharger - Sydney (Chatswood), NSW

    Alerted by post of @rx80, Video of new V4 Superchargers at Chatswood in Sydney's North. https://www.facebook.com/share/v/sLNzdE11rXMcsJm9/?mibextid=oFDknk Poster reports 8 V4s. Will still be some time off as while the stalls are up there are no power cables in the conduit. At The Mix @...

    NRMA fast charging network

    But far from me but seems the Australian/Chinese Elumina units at Mittagong are having teething issues. Listed as free on NRMA app but paid on Chargefox (a problem in itself). But a number of posts on Plugshare of people only getting 8kW or quickly dropping to 8kW. Not clear if this represents...

    Jolt EV charging network

    Had my first Joltumping (gazumping) experience today. Had just missed out on one Jolt so drove to another 5min away that was showing green. Picked up the handle, extended the cable to reach, plugged in, and then the button went reserved before I could hit Begin Charge. Lady in a Y showed up in...

    Tesla still doesn't know about the Rozelle Interchange

    Same here - AU-2024.14. Just tested a few routes and it worked including the free Iron Cove link. Of course the Airport Gateway exits are due to open near the end of the year, and it will no doubt be a few months before they get included.

    Supercharger - Campbellfield, Vic

    Don't think anyone was pushing no new sites, particularly after the Australian press release that said sites under construction would be completed (and I suspect this one falls into that category) and that NSW and QLD Govt contracts would be met. But it's more what happens after that which is...

    Supercharger - Campbellfield, Vic

    Woohoo. A new one for Melbourne's North. Carpark of the El Jannah and HJs in Campbellfield. Spotted by Phillip D. 6 V3s. Great location on Sydney Road, just off the Western Ring Rd near the intersection of the Hume Freeway. https://www.facebook.com/share/p/mTK1UnpBbt7Uhx6f/?mibextid=oFDknk

    Supercharger - Benalla, Vic (Withdrawn June 2024)

    Agreed. Tesla already has some 6/25 off-street parks in that very small Euroa council carpark (I wouldn't give Tesla more unless they bought the block), and suspect being a small town further power expansions might be very expensive power wise. Whereas this Benalla site was near shovel ready...

    Supercharger - Campbelltown, NSW

    Can't imagine a few electricians would be much good at removing that.

    ARENA/NRMA national fast charging network

    Interesting article. Entire unit is built offsite in Mackay by Linked Group and folded up to presumably fit in a truck for shipment to site as a near ready to go unit once you unfurl the roof.

    Ford F-150 Lightning RHD in Australia

    I wonder if you could get the power outlets changed, as there is presumably already a transformer somewhere in the car.

    Supercharger - Blaxland, NSW

    Now showing online in car and on app. (Interesting also Macquarie shows a 15min wait at lunchtime on a Thu, albeit one stall listed as out)

    Getting 14.9 to replace 14.8 on my 2020 3. Seems to be going out pretty quickly based on TeslaFi.

    Ford F-150 Lightning RHD in Australia

    Looks great. Any idea how many of the tech features work in Australia? Do they upgrade the bed PowerPoints to Aus 230V fittings?

    Supercharger - Blaxland, NSW

    Post from Peter that Blaxland likely to re-open this afternoon. Tesla tech will then go to Campbeltown, contractor to Yass. https://www.facebook.com/share/p/86aAc6sdac5ZaEc1/?mibextid=oFDknk

    Photo on Plugshare showing new V4 stalls already installed, so looks like it might have been a typo and will reopen soon.

    Supercharger - Benalla, Vic (Withdrawn June 2024)

    Think this was fairly likely after the firing and the press release that only mentioned NSW and QLD programs and sites already under construction. Not even sure who else would be interested in taking over the sites... Maybe Woolworths could start an EV charging division buying Tesla Superchargers.

    Superchargers in Australia

    Yep. Ampol is all via the app (same as for their EV charging). Think BP might be the same.

    Superchargers in Australia

    Very different upgrade. This is just replacing the dispensing unit or stall (V3 to V4).. the wiring in the ground/ in conduits remains as does the main power units (the white boxes which are also V3, which I suspect are the most expensive part). To upgrade the earlier V2 sites you are...

    Supercharger - Wagga Wagga, NSW

    To be upgraded to V4 stalls from 18-20 June per Tesla email.

    Supercharger - Yass, NSW

    To be closed for update to V4 stalls on 11-13 June per Tesla email.

    Supercharger - Blaxland, NSW

    And confirmed by Tesla email. Interestingly email list a much longer shutdown for Blaxland (all the other upgrades are only 3 days). Blaxland: 4–24 June, 2024

    Supercharger - Raymond Terrace, NSW

    Not NACS - the S/X in Aus and Europe used a modified Type 2 port. Basically the top half of what's in the 3/Y but with an extra key/ cutout. https://thedriven.io/2022/12/21/tesla-launches-new-ev-charging-battle-but-the-plug-war-is-already-over/

    Supercharger - Blaxland, NSW

    Blaxland was part NSW Govt funded so arguably needs V4 stalls to comply with the specs (charge all cars (well all CCS2 cars), and CC facilities). Guess we will see. If it is a V4 stall upgrade, would expect to see the same at Campbeltown, Figtree, Tenterfield, Wagga Wagga and Yass. From the...

    Kerbside pole-mounted chargers are now a thing

    So seemingly new player Chargepost award is only for 20 sites and all in North Sydney Council area. That council has previously dabbled with a handful of paid Type2 points in its own carpark, on the rather horrible EO app...

    2024.8.9 I still the most popular version globally, although there are now more cars combined on the three main 2024.14.x versions. I'm still patiently waiting as well.
