    Gen1 Tesla Wall Charger Plug End Broke Off - Recommendations?

    Based on historical precedent, I believe you're supposed to tow the remaining part outside the environment. (reference)

    Supercharger - Northridge, CA (under construction Jun 2022, 24 V3 stalls)

    Those precast concrete elements lined up behind the guy in pic #2 are the bases for supercharger posts and are a unique Tesla item for supercharger construction. So, even without the cabinets, that's enough to totally confirm the construction.

    Hertz Employees Using All Superchargers

    They absolutely can in many/most cases. But the process will be quite a bit more involved if their lot is on airport property, where getting approvals for such improvements isn't just a matter of Hertz corporate having their ducks in order.

    Hertz Employees Using All Superchargers

    Womp, womp. Your ridiculous jihad against the TPC is total BS in this context (as in many others). Tesla sells/installs private superchargers for commercial entities that have a need for them for their fleet operations. If Hertz needs fast charging on their lot, they can have private...

    Supercharger - Avenel, NJ

    8 is the default number of stalls SC.info uses when they add locations in the US. It'll get updated once there's a definite count.

    Tesla Charging in NYC

    So, a bit of confusion here. At that Atlantic Center there are both (urban) 72kW superchargers AND destination chargers. So, it's easy to think you're looking at the info for one and are actually seeing the info for the other. @GrandWazoo you should go back and try using the superchargers and...

    Tesla Charging in NYC

    For charging, Level 1 (L1) is plugging into a 120 volt wall outlet. What you used is Level 2 (L2) equipment, AC electricity delivery at 208 or 240 volts. That specific type of L2 hardware, called a Tesla Wall Connector, is Tesla's version of what people might install at home for overnight...

    Electrify America general discussion

    In a study of DCFC performance, it's going to be very difficult to control for variable charge rates caused by the car instead of the charging equipment unless they are using some 3rd party app/tech that reads the vehicle side information from the OBD2 port, like Scan My Tesla. They'd need to...

    Supercharger - Tyngsborough, MA

    I meant more as a general policy for all supercharger construction sites, not just specifically at Tyngsborough.
  10. mociaf9

    Supercharger - Coos Bay, OR

    It's part of Tesla's policy of majorly, majorly understaffing communications and customer service personnel. Same reason why you can't get ahold of anyone if you try to call a Tesla service center or store and why it's so hard to have steady contact/communications with delivery teams, etc...

    Setec CCS to Tesla Adapter

    The warning isn't for the rando passerby, it's telling the driver not to create a hazard, i.e. use different charging equipment so that you don't create this hazardous situation in which someone might get hurt and then sue you.

    Supercharger - Tyngsborough, MA

    I'd love for them to put covers over the parking signs until the site is ready to use. Would serve multiple purposes in that locations with long waits for energizing and activation wouldn't be needlessly limiting parking opportunities, they wouldn't be training people to ignore the signs and...

    Setec CCS to Tesla Adapter

    Now that the official Tesla CCS adapter is available in the US, that battle is entering its final stages. No possible way for Setec to remain relevant even in the middle term as the Tesla hardware is significantly superior in every way: cheaper, allows faster charging, properly locks so is...

    Supercharger - Sechelt, BC

    That would be a really unusual excavation for a supercharger site. Maybe it's necessary at this location for some reason I can't fathom? But at this point, I am (and will remain) dubious that this is for the chargers.
  15. mociaf9

    Supercharger - North Platte, NE

    No, lots of locations still get built out on site.

    Supercharger Scottsdale - 101 and Pima

    Nope, not vandalism, just the installation crew doing things in a way that will save them some time & effort. When they know that they'll have to get back into the posts again to continue work, for inspections, or for testing they often don't fully close them up. So you'll occasionally see...

    Supercharger - Orlando, FL - W Robinson St

    Snarky answer: Well, I suppose that depends on your definition of "costly". :) Non-snarky answer: No, the only way to charge a Tesla here will be with either the CHAdeMO or the CCS adapter, either of which will set you back over $300.

    Supercharger - Maple Grove, MN

    Welcome to TMC and thanks for sharing your update! I'm sure they saw the V3 supercharger cabinets that have the Tesla Energy markings on their shipping covers. For anyone not a regular follower of supercharger construction, and zennermp is a new TMC member making their first post so this is...

    Supercharger - San Francisco, CA - 16th St (under construction Feb 2022, 12 stalls)

    No, supercharger construction schedules and opening timelines seem almost stochastic. Tesla's online map shows a targeted opening date in Q3 of this year, though.

    Supercharger - Ontario, CA (LIVE 14 Jun 2022, 8 V3 stalls)

    Thanks for investigating and posting pics. BTW, there are 8 superchargers in your first picture.

    Supercharger - Pueblo, CO

    Anyone who wants to keep an eye on the project without having to physically drive past it on a regular basis can do so via looking up the building permit on the Pueblo permitting portal: Pueblo supercharger permit A week ago the building permit was approved, but it hasn't been issued yet...
  22. mociaf9

    Supercharger - Mesa, AZ

    Yes. They won't start construction until the building permit has been issued. However, it sometimes happens that these online permiting systems aren't quite updated in real time, so there may be some minor delay between true status and what is shown in the system. Depends on how the local...

    Supercharger - Ypsilanti, MI

    Tesla often uses that Trex product to screen their electrical equipment in jurisdictions that require that be done by fencing instead of vegetation/trees. And the site plans posted by tesrella upthread show that this location will have such a Trex fence. So, I'm pretty sure this is for the...

    Supercharger - Georgetown, TX

    Yeah, his take is actually doubly dumb as the facts aren't just somewhat inconvenient but actually run counter to his point. Temple was one of the early sites that Tesla was trying to put a supercharger back in 2013, but they ended up having to put it in Waco instead as the city of Temple...

    Supercharger Pricing Map?

    Since this discussion of EA pricing is off topic for this thread, I replied in the general EA discussion thread (quoting the relevant prior comments in my new one). Further discussion should be done there: Electrify America general discussion

    Electrify America general discussion

    Replying to/continuing a discussion about EA pricing from a thread where it's off topic: Thanks, that definitely clears up any uncertainty about whether EA uses dynamic pricing tiers throughout a session, with a very straightforward answer of no, they don't. For my remaining pricing tier...

    Supercharger Pricing Map?

    There's some debate about exactly how EA pricing tiers actually work and I've never seen it cleared up to my satisfaction. But basically, it's not clear that they work like Tesla's tiers do, where you will pay each tier's price as your charging slows down into that tier, i.e. for the time that...

    San Antonio to Amarillo

    Going through Lubbock, even though the newly opened Lubbock Supercharger is in the SW corner of the city and is therefore out of the way of your route by a bit, would be faster. The Lubbock location isn't in the car's navigation system yet, so if you used the car to navigate that's why it...

    Supercharger - Baker, CA - StackCharge

    It's possible that Tesla will be trialing a new business model here, i.e. as equipment provider as opposed to just leasing space and owning the charging station. That is how all the rest of the DCFC charging providers operate. If that is the case, then in addition to the supercharger hardware...

    Latvia Superchargers

    According to a post on reddit, the location is now under construction:

    Supercharger - North Bergen, NJ

    Wow, that's great news! I was sure it was just a matter of an addressing error or something with the paperwork and that both identified sites were actually meant to be the same spot, not two separate locations. This result is the best possible outcome, glad I was wrong.

    Supercharger - Ridgefield, WA

    For supercharger locations on city property, it's fairly common. Some cities negotiate for Tesla to pay rent for the lease, some don't. Depends on a number of things, including how forceful/desparate Tesla's interest in the location is, etc. Note that in this case, in addition to the...

    NYC Garages Charging Additional Fees For Destination Charging

    No, unfortunately, you're wrong. If the location was a legit partner in the Destination Charging program, Tesla left the conditions of charging access entirely up to the proprietors. Though they did push for them to be free to patrons of the host business, it was in the sense of a hopeful...

    Possible Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    I agree with you and the things you mentioned were the same things I looked at and recognized in the listing. It'd be nice if Tesla showed Clyde, TX (or something close by) on their map with a coming soon pin, but they leave them off regularly enough to not make it a concern.

    Supercharger - Waller, TX

    Big push to get locations finished and activated in time to be useful for Memorial Day driving. Happens before most "travel" holidays and at/around end of quarter dates.

    Supercharger - Tyngsborough, MA

    Why isn't it marked with the DO NOT EAT signs/symbols?!? Hmmm, strange. /s :D

    Supercharger - Odessa, FL

    Unfortunately, supercharger workflow and construction timelines seem quite stochastic. No one can give you a reliable estimate at this point.

    Supercharger - Yucca Valley, CA (pre-application Nov 2021, 16 V3 stalls)

    In fact, as a matter of perception, more updates makes the construction feel like it takes longer. Counterintuitively annoying, that.
  42. mociaf9

    Supercharger - Woodburn, OR

    Besides some early testing locations at Tesla/SpaceX facilities and Kettleman City, they recent(ish)ly did it at the site near the JFK airport in Brooklyn, NY. But, yeah, it basically never happens. 99% of the time they just install new V3 hardware alongside.

    Supercharger - Brea, CA - Madrona Ave. (under construction Jun 2022, 24 stalls)

    Maybe they are stuck in moderation limbo for some reason? I've seen it happen before once or twice. Just to double check, @drkwoods did you post those pics to this thread? Because we aren't seeing such a post if you did.

    Supercharger - Primm Hub, NV

    Based on user reports from other locations, the ones on that mobile trailer can charge up to 150 kW. They aren't normal urban superchargers even though they use the same charging post design.
  45. mociaf9

    Supercharger - Harris Ranch, CA - Expansion (under construction Apr 2022, 80 stalls)

    Yes, still the switchgear and power distribution cabinets, just a different style. Not the first time that type have been used for superchargers, but they are less common than the others that Tesla generally uses.

    CCS Adapter for North America

    Sure, but if we do we'll also have to back her up when she explains to you how much money she saved by spending a couple grand at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorfs when they have sales. Fair is fair.

    Supercharger - Calabasas, CA - Commons Way (LIVE 12 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    The cars don't all fetch updates from the Tesla Mothership database at the same time. Give it a day or two.

    Supercharger - Barstow, CA - Tanger Way (LIVE 26 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    Let me make it clear for you, Barstow's mayor is not a reliable source on this matter. I don't doubt that there will be at least 100 charging stations, but people not intimately knowledgeable about EVs never understand that you need to separate out the numbers for DCFC and L2 charging. Unless...

    Supercharger - Barstow, CA - Tanger Way (LIVE 26 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    I wouldn't be surprised if that number includes the L2 stalls, of which I counted 30 in the pics posted above.

    Supercharger - Long Beach, CA (LIVE 16 May 2022, 20 V3 stalls)

    Too early to say whether that's the case or not. It often takes Tesla a while to sort out their data after things change. The "coming soon" Long Beach entry could still be referring to this location that just opened and it just hasn't been removed yet. I usually think you need to wait at...
