    Supercharger - Durham NC

    That's a totally misleading comparison, because of the huge difference in battery capacity. A 10% to 80% charge for the largest Ioniq 5 battery (about 73kWh), is about 51 kWh in 18 minutes. But you expect the same 18 minutes for the 200 kWh Cybertruck battery, where a 10% to 80% charge is...

    Supercharger - Lexington, NC

    A clue is the placement of the post, where the charging station will be. It's where the charge port would be for a car pulled in nose-first.

    Supercharger - Lexington, NC

    This is a trailer hitch friendly spot, designed to be used by pulling your car in nose first. If you’re pulling a trailer you don’t have to unhitch the trailer in order to charge. Also useful if you have be a hitch mounted bike or luggage rack.

    NC State Inspection

    I’ve used the Quality Inspection Center on Kildare for my X. It’s on Kildare Farm just south of Cary Parkway.

    Supercharger - Cary, NC

    Sorry, just realized you couldn't tell from the pic I posted, but most of the pedestals were lit, and that Model X was making its way from pedestal to pedestal testing.

    Supercharger - Statesville, NC

    Are aware this site is no longer listed on Tesla's supercharger map? I think it's pretty clear the Hickory supercharger replaced this one.

    X75D full charge miles

    My X75D gets 206 rated miles when I charge to 90% charge, and 234 rated miles when I charge to 100%. That's after 2 years and 4 months of ownership and 34,000 miles. 206 / 90 * 100 = 229 The math doesn't match exactly, but it's pretty close.

    Ball mount for towing a U-haul trailer

    I want to rent a u-haul trailer to tow with my Model X. I'll be driving about 40 miles, hauling a 400 lbs power wheelchair on a motorcycle trailer. I'll easily be able to center it directly on the load line over the tires. U-haul trailers have a coupler height of 18", according to U-Haul...

    Charleston, S.C. supercharger?

    I stayed at one of the hotels within walking distance of the Tanger outlet, so could leave my X there for several hours every evening to get a 90% charge without any inconvenience.

    North Myrtle Beach Tesla Charger

    There’s no Superchargers in Charleston, and destination chargers only at the top end hotels. But there are L2 chargers at some downtown parking garages as well as at the outlet mall. I stayed at one of the hotels in easy walking distance of the chargers at the outlet mall and had no trouble...

    Hooking up iPod, etc.

    There is no audio/aux input. If you don't want to use Bluetooth, the other option is to use a USB memory stick loaded with songs. It'll also work with some MP3 players that behave like a memory stick when USB connected

    Model X quits charging

    If you want to make sure use the phone app to see that it is still charging, and the charging rate and remaining charging time.

    Turning off BT (iPhone) auto-play when the car turns on?

    For me, the problem isn’t the auto-resume itself. The problem is when auto-resume happens. It auto-resumes before I even get in the car. It should wait until I sit in the driver’s seat, or press on the brake pedal. Also it should pause while navigation speaks.

    Parking Brake Safety Recall Notice

    They did mine when I got my X75D uncorked yesterday. I didn’t know ithey we’re going to do it until I dropped it off at the service center.

    Good inventory deal for MX 75D?

    0 to 60 uncork

    Just got confirmation from my Service Center that my June 2016 X75d (VIN 0088xx) is eligible for uncorking!

    X: What's your 90%?

    Seems awfully low. 90% should be around 210 for an X75D

    Can you summon using the key fob

    I had one fob that wouldn’t summon, and one that would. Went in to the Service Center, they tried a number of things including updating the fob firmware, but in the end they gave me a new fob. Kept the old one as a spare.

    Hoping to install L2 EVSEs that require payment

    Be aware that in many jurisdictions it is illegal to sell electricity unless you are a designated electric utility or retail electric provider. In those jurisdictions it is OK to charge for time in the parking space and give away the electricity, but it is not OK to charge for the electricity.

    Average leg during road trip

    For us, distance between charges has been determined primarily by the location of superchargers along our route. Other than the possibility of skipping the first one after leaving home with a 100% charge, the chargers have been more than 100 miles apart, and we won't attempt more than 200 miles...

    New Superchargers Proposed in Greensboro and Raleigh, NC

    I'm confused because there isn't a Sheetz anywhere near there, and I don't see how a Sheetz could fit there, or make any financial sense to have a Sheetz there.
