    Supercharger - Dublin, CA - Fallon Gateway (under construction Jun 2019, 10 V2 stalls)

    I wouldn't read too much into the thread title...it's updated manually by yours truly. Maybe I didn't count correctly before? I can't remember and I'm too lazy to go back and check old photos. Looks like you've accounted for 10 in your photos, so I'll go ahead and change the count in the thread...

    Supercharger - Dublin, CA - Fallon Gateway (under construction Jun 2019, 10 V2 stalls)

    My wife was over at Gum Kuo this morning to pick up some take-out lunch. She reports "no change". (I figure she's been to this site with me enough times that she knows where the transformer pad is, and she'd recognize a transformer if one was installed.) Bruce.

    Wiki Superchargers Visited

    I think the point of driving so far is just to get it, full stop. There were some stories in the news here about people driving from (e.g.) LA to Bakersfield, or SF to Central Valley, for vaccines. I guess that could be seen as extreme, but compare that to some of the trips we in this group...

    Wiki Superchargers Visited

    I had Glympse on when I was driving around grabbing three Superchargers last Friday. I think it crashed the first 3 times I tried to share my location with you-all. This didn't exactly fill me with confidence, but being a stupid IT person I kept at it until it finally "worked". Bruce.

    Supercharger - Soledad, CA - Mission Soledad Shopping Center (Permit Issued Mar 2021)

    It depends. A minute on a V3 charger isn't going to get me very far on my S85D. Just saying not everybody drives those newfangled Model 3/Y things. :) Bruce.

    Supercharger - Harris Ranch, CA (Permit filed for an 80-stall expansion)

    Moderator note: Note this thread is about expansion activity colocated with an existing Supercharger site. It's not clear whether this will be considered a separate site (in the Tesla nav, app, etc.) or whether it's going to be an expansion of the existing one. If the latter, we'll probably...

    Supercharger - Fort Bragg, CA (under construction Mar 2021, 12 stalls)

    I’d just like to advise people to avoid jumping to conclusions. All we know for sure at this point is that there was construction “stuff” on site and it’s gone now. (Good discussion though.) Bruce.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Moved about a dozen posts to the politics quarantine which had not a darn thing to do with anybody's delivery update. Folks, there's the entire Model S forum to chat about various ownership issues like license plates, tires, yokes/wheels, shifters, and whatever. Really don't want to have clean...

    Supercharger - Brentwood, CA (LIVE 31 Mar 2021, 16 V3 stalls)

    Did a charge there this afternoon. Couple interesting observations: 1. Public restrooms are in the building almost directly in front of the Superchargers...you should be able to see them from the charging stalls. 2. Nobody commented on this before, but there's an empty pad next to the...

    TBH, I could do without the "Member" text too, but maybe that's to distinguish them from the "Moderator" shirts with the bullseye on the back. 😆😆😆 Bruce.

    Yep, sorry, I should have updated this a long time ago, but I think I was waiting for somebody to post a photo or something like that and it just slipped my mind. Fixed now. Thanks! Bruce.

    Supercharger - Brentwood, CA (LIVE 31 Mar 2021, 16 V3 stalls)

    Interesting! Getting some sort of photographic evidence would be very useful. What's we know so far, while encouraging, isn't really enough to justify us calling it "under construction" so I'm going to put the word "possibly" in the thread title until we have something more definite. Like...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I'm not sure if you're asking me specifically or the entire forum. I personally have no contacts at Tesla who 1) would have this information with any degree of confidence and 2) would be willing to break whatever NDA agreements they have with their employer to leak that to me. Bruce. PS. And...

    No, I wasn't quite suggesting the thread go dark except for actual deliveries. I'd say if you're somewhere in the ordering/delivery process, any updates would be right on topic (although I do notice someone made a "waiting room" thread also in this forum). I dimly remember that one of my first...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I know everyone's bored and anxious and they want to discuss the new Model S details and gossip, but most of the recent messages has zero to do with the actual topic of the thread, which is Model S ordering and deliveries (since the thread was first created in 2012). Fair warning that I might be...

    California Supercharger Locations FAQ

    Let me think about this for a bit. This is kind of a general ownership question, and not really specific to California. There are some places where there are fairly obvious places to form a line (like big, open parking lots) and some that are really hard (Cupertino comes to mind, or almost any...

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA - Mira Mesa Blvd (under construction Feb 2021, 16 V3 stalls)

    If you mean the pin on the Tesla "find us" map, it's been established for a number of years that the pins for Superchargers under construction aren't in the exact location (often they're placed at the geographic center of the city, although that might not be true in this case). They get updated...

    Supercharger - Dublin, CA - Fallon Gateway (under construction Jun 2019, 10 V2 stalls)

    My opinion only: It'll be plenty helpful and it'll get used because people (many but not all of them East Bay residents) come to this shopping center. Whether it's V2, V3, or Urban, any Supercharger installation helps. Bruce.

    $1000? The CHAdeMO adapter has been $400 for a long time (I do remember when it cost more). Anyway I'm gonna vote "no". This is the "Most Superchargers Visited" competition, not the "Most L3 Chargers Visited" competition. Bruce.

    Supercharger - Greenbrae, CA (LIVE 16 Dec 2020, 14 urban stalls)

    You don't, basically. The four Superchargers on the app are supposed to be the four closest, or four of the closest, to where your car is. But whatever computes "closest" doesn't always seem to do the right thing in places that have a high density of Superchargers (like the SF Bay Area). Also...

    $5500 main panel upgrade??

    The number of Powerwalls vs. number of empty breaker slots doesn't matter because the Powerwall batteries connect to the Tesla Energy Gateway (TEG), which is a required part of every Powerwall installation. They don't connect directly to your main panel / subpanel. Bruce.

    Does your router need to be on 24/7 for all this to work?

    I think it's probably best if we stay on the topic of what impact being disconnected from the Internet will have on Powerwall gateways. Comments on router security and turning off one's router to prevent malware probably belong in a different thread, and a different forum. OK. Many gateways are...

    My main memory of the New Jersey Turnpike was running over somebody's muffler and tailpipe. Fortunately it was so rusted through that it did zero damage to my car. (Wasn't driving my Tesla...this was like 30 years ago.) Last weekend I was feeling the urge for a drive, but I ended up going...

    Supercharger - Clovis, CA (LIVE 19 Mar 2021, 12 stalls)

    I'm gonna guess they're back-in angled stalls (which someone, maybe you?, posited upthread). Sacramento Arden Way is like this (well most of the stalls are anyway), and there was some recent discussion of a site in SoCal that also does this. Bruce.

    Supercharger - Fremont, CA - 47400 Kato Rd (not completed, V3 test site Mar 2019)

    Well that looks like the partial pedestals that were originally installed (see somewhere around post #30), but were removed a few years ago. I drove past on Kato Road a few days back and didn't notice anything like this (didn't really look for them though). Are you sure this is a current photo...
