    Supercharger - Manorville NY

    I stopped by on Monday 4/25/22 not b/c I needed a charge, but b/c I wanted to replenish what I had lost driving by the eastern end of long island and I wanted to try out this location. also, my weekly destination charging garage in the city has been giving me a hard time the past few weeks I...

    Did Elon Musk flash the white supremacy symbol on SNL on Saturday?

    I've actually been thinking a lot about this thread since Monday. I'm not surprised to see it resurrected. and yes, I am the OP of this thread and I still think Musk was flashing the White Power slogan on SNL as seen in the pics above, I have about 14 month left on extended warranty of my...

    I saw my 1st Rivian R1T in NYC yesterday..

    Speaking of Marques, it may have been him in the driver's seat when I had my sighting bc he did have his "test drive" on the day that I saw the R1T. of course most of the footage from the YouTube video is in NJ, and as I said above, I didn't get a good look at the interior. fun times.. :cool:

    I saw my 1st Rivian R1T in NYC yesterday..

    I spotted the Rivian R1T in NYC yesterday as I was driving around doing some errands. it was the "Super Mario" blue color. :cool: looked nice. unfortunately the ride height is so high I couldn't get a good look at the interior. I am very interested in the Rivian R1S but I worry that I wont...

    Supercharger - Roslyn Heights, NY

    This is a much needed SCer location. Ever since Syosset was “decommissioned” there has been no easy way to leave the city heading East with only 30-40 miles of rated range. (I find myself in this predicament all the time, unfortunately.) but now, Even with 30 miles RR, we can head out from...

    Tesla Supercharger network

    This has been a pet-peeve of mine since tesla started charging $$ for supercharger use. My Model S is from 2015 and has free supercharging so I am completely in the dark about what Tesla is charging those without free supercharging. even more annoying, this forum -- usually so informative on...

    Right-to-Charge laws in New York?

    You should reach out to the lawyer and ask him why the charger was approved by the other HOA but not this one. if he won't talk to you, hire a lawyer to talk to him.

    MASTER THREAD: FSD Subscription Available 16 Jul 2021

    I would do $199 -- its reasonable and you don't have to worry about Tesla taking their sweet time refunding yr $10,000. as an aside, if the price were $5,000 i'd say try it for a month and if you like it, buy it outright. its only 25 months of payments. is suspect u would keep yr car at least...

    Did Elon Musk flash the white supremacy symbol on SNL on Saturday?

    I’m saying that Eddie Murphy flashing the OK sign 30 years ago is irrelevant to this discussion.
  15. G

    Did Elon Musk flash the white supremacy symbol on SNL on Saturday?

    The OK sign has been appropriated by actual white supremacists. This is known and not some liberal snowflake conspiracy. The same is true of "red pilling" so you are saying that because Eddie Murphy spent the 1st million dollars he made in 1987 on bitcoin the OK sign could never be a covert...

    Did Elon Musk flash the white supremacy symbol on SNL on Saturday?

    This. coupled with all the “red pill” and “the ‘rona is a hoax” st*ff Musk has been spewing on Twitter… 😬 I’m sad to say but I think THIS is why he wanted to go on SNL…

    Did Elon Musk flash the white supremacy symbol on SNL on Saturday?

    I watched several of the SNL skits on YouTube on Sunday morning and was so pleased when Musk mentioned Asperger's and thought the episode was chugging along nicely... at one point Musk even offered a semi-apology for being a "mask-hole." and then, during the Weekend Update skit he repeatedly...

    1000 mile road trip with SCer throttled 2015 Model S 85D

    I'd like some feedback from those of us with older Model S's that have now been SCer throttled. my car does often hit 115 kW (or better) SCer rate, but that only lasts a few seconds. Even with a low SOC my car is charging below 90 KW for much for much of the charging session and i'm wondering...

    Will US Tesla work in Europe?

    I misspoke.. both my homes in Greece are wired for 3-phase power. I had originally thought that my summer home (constructed in the early-90s) was single-only, but it turns out that it too is wired for 400 V 3-phase at 16 amps.
  21. G

    Will US Tesla work in Europe?

    Yes but what about North American Spec Teslas in Europe. it sounds like they would be limited to 230 V x 16 amps b/c if it is pulling 1 phase of 480 V at 16 Amps, it would be limited to 16 amps.. which is super slow and very prohibitive. like I said in my post above, most homes are wired for...

    JFK Superchargers

    That's very cool! how much does it cost? Does JFK SCer get backed up often? I have only used 2-3 times myself b/c it is a pain to get to from the city, but I grew up in the shadow of the Verrazano Bridge and the Belt, so I can see how it might be useful for some.

    I’ve been tethering my iPhone 12 Pro Max to the car (I won’t have 5G service until my next billing cycle bc AT&T is greedy) And I noticed that this map update — while it is progressing — Is doing so more slowly than any previous map update. Until reading this post, I assumed it was my new...

    I had the same XM Icon show up today. I have a pano roof but did not opt for the Sound Studio / High Fidelity sound package. (I know, i'm showing my age here) .. I tried to use the XM preview channel and it did not work, but I find the icon miss-leading and taking up screen real estate. what...

    What to do about NYC public garage gougers?

    yes, they are still decent and they charge my Tesla whenever I need them to without much hassle. they definitely have some space so I would look into booking with them directly. if not, try booking them thru DropCar as I did. i'm very pleased. let me know if you have any other questions.. feel...

    A Better Routeplanner

    Yes.. my car is a 2015 Model S85D.. I rarely need to supercharge these days, mostly b/c of Covid-19, but I was surprised to find my battery pulling less than 72 kW at a SCer capable of at least 130 kW with only 41 rated miles when I plugged in. all i'm saying is that if I was expecting to get...

    A Better Routeplanner

    Does anyone know if ABRP takes into account SCer throttled "vintage" Model S 85Ds? I stopped by SC yesterday with 41 miles of RR and only got a max of 67 kW. I only needed like 5-6 miles of margin to get home. and I had to pee, so it wasn't all for nothing, but I worry about my next 2000 mile...

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    I think this is normal for all cars.. even those that are not throttled. charging above 90% takes much longer than charging from 20%-50% and charging above 95% takes FOREVER.

    Will US Tesla work in Europe?

    What kind of charging speeds are you getting on a NA-spec Tesla from a type 2 charger? is it limited to 3.68 kW (230 V x 16 Amps) because its single phase? or can you get 7.36 kW (230 V x 32 Amps) out of these chargers. this is something i'm always confused about. in Greece most modern homes...

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    it does not sound to me like you are throttled. But i'm not an expert on throttle-gate so.. My 2015 85D has just over 40,000 miles on the odometer and I have had several SCer sessions that describe something similar to this.. although my car will hit 128 kW IIRC (I have not supercharged in...

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    Haven't followed this thread in some time... I know that the 90 packs were subject to throttling for excessive DC-Charging b/c the battery chemistry was a little different than the 85-packs (and the 100 packs?) have there been reports of 85-packs being throttled due to excessive DC-charging...

    Good story! and CONGRATS on the new car! I agree, i've been pretty strict myself about social distancing measures during Covid-19, but they should allow a very limited number of people in the show room, by appointment only, just to facilitate the "closing" of the purchase. not so potential...

    The 483 Mile Report: Two Days With My New 2020 Model S LR+

    Supercharger - Water Mill, NY

    I was a little perplexed as to why they are building a SCer at this location.. there is ALREADY another supercharger 5.6 miles away... but then when I googled I found a commercial space at this new location that once housed Soul Cycle classes. in my household we haven't been very big on Soul...

    Supercharger - Montauk, NY

    Have they started construction on the Montauk, NY SuperCharger yet? In my little corner of the quarantine world, the Summer Season started exactly a week ago when I decamped from NYC out east. i'm much closer to Southampton than I am to Montauk.. but I say the more SCers, the better. :)

    Super Charger Adapter for US cars in Europe

    What is the price of the adapter quoted on this website? Also, I am happy to see from the notes that it charged at least to 104 kW although sadly in the YouTube video the car shown has a roughly 50% full battery and is only charging at 42 kW (these dudes need to work on their marketing)...

    Do you wipe down the plug at the Supercharger?

    Some SCers have them. they are not always nearby. I often travel with my pups and use SCer stops as a chance to for a relieve walk. often have to hunt down the trash bins to dispose of the waste.. and once or twice I have had to take the baggies with me unfortunately. oh well the life of a dog...

    Do you wipe down the plug at the Supercharger?

    I have not yet gone to a supercharger since early march. but I have thought about it. I do not charge at "home" but at a privately run garage that is monitored by attendants. Because on-street parking is plentiful and "Sunday rules are in effect" (no need to feed the parking meter) i've been...

    Valet gave my card key to another Tesla driver. It’s gone.

    I read the "if" as a "when" ... and it's not just about "no restaurant is good enough" -- for some of us, supercharger usage is predicated on leaving the car with a valet. I know, there are other superchargers out there.. but sometimes the one you need to use needs you to leave your car, and...

    Really? and this was worked for you every time? very strange. in my neck of the woods the valets would refuse to take your car. now if this is the "hack" you use in order to self park your car in a valet space, good for you.. but again... at some point you'll find yourself walking a long...

    Supercharger - Brooklyn, NY - N. 12th Street

    the garage at N 12 street has level 2 chargers (208 Volts b/c its commercial power) as well as superchargers -- if you were leaving the ar for a week I would expect them to plug you in to the level 2 destination charger rather than the SCer.
