    Supercharger - Aiea, HI (6 stalls)

    Tesla car wash?

    Why do they open a new car wash right near an existing car wash? wouldn't' they get more business if they opened on another part of the island. I Guess people in Wapio are the only ones who wash their cars. the same goes for starbucks.:D

    Free shipping to Hawaii from TSportline

    Roadster, S and X center cap measures 2.25 inches or 57.15 mm in diameter which is the most common cap size for many of wheels for Tesla models. I found OEM replacements for about $25.

    Free airport parking in Honolulu is back!!

    didn't they used to have some chargers in the airport parking. worst case scenario if you did not let your car go into a deep sleep... you could just plug in for a while after arriving and just hang out at the airport until you are at a comfortable level to go home.

    Hawaiian Electric $50 EV charging credit

    it shouldn't take much to change the Model S/X CHAdeMo adapter to work with the model 3.o_O Its probably just a firmware change in the adapter to match the M3 Specs.:rolleyes: I stopped using my CHAdeMo adapter when they jacked the price up.:mad:

    Hawaii - Let's Count Teslas!

    I am a do-it-yourselfer, but in this case I would consult a licensed electrician. an EV is pulls power constantly while charging and improper connections have caused heat issues and have resulted in fires for some people who did it themselves. if there is a fire and it is determined that your...

    Superchargers in Hawaii (location speculation, general discussion)

    I think I saw a post on tmc a few years ago with a similar setup. the chargers were portable so they could be used at multiple spots and then moved back to the "base" to recharge them. a bit foggy on the details (I wasn't able to find the old post)

    Free airport parking in Honolulu is back!!

    I have been saying for a long time they need to revise the definition of what an EV is. 100% electric. their definition of what an EV is may have helped with the adoption of EVs. but a hybrid is not an EV:eek:
