    Supercharger - Bloomington, MN

    Still no transformer, but a big optimist with a white Model 3 plugged in and walked away. I think that person will be disappointed upon return to the car.

    @corywright @Chuq Is this enough for a blue dot?

    Supercharger - Two Harbors, MN

    Your coordinates are in the ShopKo parking lot, according to Street View. Did Seagren's recently buy that location? There's a Seagren's a block away from Castle Danger Brewery, and while I like that combination, there's no parking lot to speak of.

    I'm pretty sure Poncha Springs, CO is the same, coming in from the Monarch Pass to the west.

    Supercharger - Shelbyville, IN

    It's hard to be sure from a picture, but the Tesla seems to be lit, meaning they're on. Somebody should head over there and see if they can get a charge.

    Yeah, weird. I mean, now it's easy to skip Hinckley, but man, other places need it more.

    Bringing my car in for some minor body work after I got rear-ended in a hit and run last month. I hope I don't miss the imminent firsts in the Minneapolis area because of it.

    Supercharger - Lake Delton, WI

    Agree. The Mauston charger was necessary to get through Wisconsin, especially in the winter. Tomah and the Dells are really going to free that up. I've seen Eau Claire nearly full before, as well, but not as often as Mauston.

    Not a ton of progress in the last couple of weeks. Looks like the pedestals haven't been delivered yet.

    Not seeing this one reflected in the rankings or Tableau. Was it missed, or am I just too impatient? Maybe I should just get spreadsheet editing rights and stop leaning on the charity of others.

    Supercharger - Rapid City, SD

    I don't remember Rapid City in particular from this weekend, but there are several V2 superchargers in South Dakota that are limited to 120 kW. Murdo and Mitchell come to mind. Wall is newer and tops out at 150 kW. The nav will show you the max charge rate. Looking at the supercharger map on...

    I had the opposite experience. Going into Canada on April 29th near Thunder Bay, ON was like the beforetimes. I had my ArriveCAN all ready to go, and I had our vaccine cards in hand. All the border agent asked for is our passports and asked the standard questions. Never asked for my vaccine...

    Supercharger - Vadnais Heights, MN

    With construction started in Bloomington and Maple Grove, I decided to drive around the parking lots here on Friday. There's a shipping container in the SW corner of the strip mall lot, but it had a big FOSS Swim School coming soon banner on it. No other activity anywhere in that lot or the...

    If it's confirmed on and I'm feeling energetic, I might swing by there on my scenic route to Sounds of Silence. I'll be interested in any news between now and the 19th.

    Minnesota Superchargers Jan. 2021 Update

    I had the same thought, so I swung by Vadnais Heights on Friday and there's no indication of any construction either in the Target lot, nor in the strip mall nearby. I'll dig up that thread and post that information there, too.

    The Lino Lakes one was always pretty speculative. I drove past there last weekend and didn't see anything going on.

    Supercharger - Monticello, MN

    It might not be clear for those who haven't driven to Brainerd/Baxter from the Twin Cities, but Monticello is usually the exit one takes to jump from I94 to US10. Having this Supercharger will mean that one won't have to make a decision between driving through St. Cloud and hitting up...

    There's been an unusual amount of snow in NE Minnesota this year, and there were reports that the waterfalls going into Lake Superior were pretty angry. So we added a day driving up the North Shore of Lake Superior in front of a planned trip to Winnipeg. That just happened to get me a few new...

    Supercharger - Kingman, AZ

    @corywright Supercharge.info shows this opening in January of 2021, not 2022, which temporarily broke my brain, since I drove through Kingman last August and I could have sworn that there was only one SC in the city.

    Until somebody sees actual activity at that Target, I think we just need to rely on the information Tesla is giving us.

    Trust me, any chance I have to do that, I do. We just don't have any obligations out of town for a while, and I'm getting antsy.

    I floated the idea of taking a week off this summer to clear Superchargers in some neighboring states while our daughter is at camp, and my wife gave me the wanking hand gesture. I don't think she's super on board with the game yet.

    Not sure if you've seen this, but ZEF installed a station near the Grand Marais city hall. It's got a CHAdeMO plug and a CCS plug as well as two J-1772s. You might not want to get a CHAdeMO adapter, which is totally reasonable, but if your car is compatible with CCS, then that adapter might be...

    Some interesting MN updates in the latest Find Us update: Monticello, MN has been added with a target of Q3 this year! Maple Grove and Bloomington are showing Q2. Vadnais Heights is showing Q4. Looks like we'll have some good expansion this year, for Minnesota standards.

    There was a discussion on this waaaay upthread, and I think we decided not to have it in the game. The two supercharger stalls seem to be just for the service center use. According to the following post and others in that thread, the employees seem to be blocking the superchargers with cars...

    I understand your frustration, but is it possible to head straight to Butte instead of Helena to get where you need to go, at least until the Helena supercharger is back online?

    I found in my 3 that turning on the charger display on the map also restored the business pins. Tap the map, then the charger option shows up in the block of three buttons along the side (along with satellite and traffic views).

    I was wondering about that! I didn't think you shipped your car from Hawaii. Though, I do occasionally see cars with Hawaii license plates. Is it common to register a car in Hawaii and keep it on the mainland?
