    Supercharger - Copperopolis, CA (LIVE 31 Mar 2021, 12 V3 stalls)

    I was there the week before Memorial day. Took my son to ride the steam train in Jamestown at the Railtown 1897 State Historic Park. Note to buy the ticket in advance online as the train fills up very quickly. Afterward, stop at this SC to charge and have lunch. There are at least 3 eateries...

    Supercharger - Baker, CA

    An observation while I was at the Baker Supercharger on Saturday on the way to Vegas. I noted there are two handles that were broken, one does not charge, the other one won't go into the port as the handles seem to have been abused, like dropping on the ground too many times. I swing the broken...

    Front and Rear Dashcam Set Up for Model S

    I know what you mean. I have 2014 P85D, gen1 hardware so not able to use any of the camera for dashcam or sentry, no side cameras either. I thought about adding side cameras as well for dashcam purposes. My plan was to get two 2 channel systems and use the main camera for from and back coverage...

    Supercharger - Baker, CA

    I was just there this weekend on Saturday traveling from Bay Area to Vegas, the temperature was 117°F according to the World's Tallest Thermometer. There is a bathroom right at the Shell gas station next to the Supercharger which is very convenient. I bought some drinks and snacks to support...

    Front and Rear Dashcam Set Up for Model S

    For the front, there is a constant on power inside the ceiling speaker cover. You can find the instruction online. The rear one I tap into the power line for the liftgate. Make sure you got the right one. So basically I have two independent cameras front and back. For the A119V3 there is no good...

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

    Yes, I meant Highway 25. Somehow I am mixing it up with 26 which is up in the Gold Country.

    Supercharger - Olema, CA (location found, in planning approval application process)

    Back in October 2020, took my P85D for a weekend stay at Point Reye Station. There are only a couple of level 2 chargers in town that seem to be always someone squatting there. I seem to recall there was a GreenLots DC charger somewhere behind the CowGirl Creamery but have since disappeared. I...

    Supercharger - Sunnyvale, CA - S. Bernardo Ave. (LIVE 3 Apr 2021, 16 V3 stalls)

    I have a 2014 P85D with close to 100Kmi. Yeah, the older cars super charging are definitely being nerfed. Interesting observation is I get better speed at the urban super chargers, like the one under the Los Altos under the Wholefoods that only goes up to 75kw. My S also gets better charging...

    Supercharger - Wells, NV

    I was at Ely in July 2020. There is only one GreenLot DC fast charger next to the Shell station. I have a CHAdeMO adapter for my P85D. I can't get the DC fast charger to work, keep erroring out. Call the tech support they remote reboot the station still no luck. End up having to use the slow...

    Supercharger - Laytonville, CA (LIVE Jun 28, 2019, 8 stalls)

    I was at Willits in December 2020. There are 2 or 3 (can't remember) EA chargers in the Safeway parking lot. I have a CHAdeMO adapter in my P85D so I can use those if I needed to. Of course in those neck of the woods, the EV spaces were squatted by pickup trucks.

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

    I drove the 198 from San Lucas then turn onto highway 26 to Hollister with my P85D. It's a great drive, the model S got enough power to come out of a turn quickly and the 4-wheel drive really grips around corners, and of course, on the few stretches of straights I can take off. The 26 especially...

    Supercharger - Cupertino, CA - Stevens Creek Blvd (LIVE 17 Nov 2020, 28 V3 stalls)

    Update photos taken on Oct 16. Looks like some pedestals are on site now. So there should be no doubt this is a future SuperCharger site. Not sure how many stalls though. Maybe counting the cabinets.

    Supercharger - Cupertino, CA - Stevens Creek Blvd (LIVE 17 Nov 2020, 28 V3 stalls)

    Latest progress as of 10/4. Cabinets are now on-site under black plastic wrap.

    Supercharger - Cupertino, CA - Stevens Creek Blvd (LIVE 17 Nov 2020, 28 V3 stalls)

    Took some progress pictures on Sunday 9/27. Looks like additional trenching has been done, some conduit pipes have been laid.

    Supercharger - Cupertino, CA - Stevens Creek Blvd (LIVE 17 Nov 2020, 28 V3 stalls)

    Dropped by on Sunday during the heatwave to take some pictures. It seems construction has started with fencing and some pavement removal. A large L shaped area in the side parking lot of the newly renovated Target has been fenced off. I am assuming this is where the Supercharger install will happen.

    Supercharger - Manteca, CA - Spreckels Ave (LIVE 9 May 2020, 12 V3 stalls)

    I was there on July 17. Two cables were already flip over the arch rather than in the holder, I am guessing those were not functional. I tried two other cables both were also nonfunctional, so I flip the cable over the arch as well. Not sure if this is the right thing to do but I thought maybe...

    Front and Rear Dashcam Set Up for Model S

    My S is AP1 no built in side cams. No even sure if I can use AP1 front and back cameras for dash cam recording or security. And I don’t think the build in camera in the new S X or 3 are as high res as 2k. I still see a lot of 3’s adding dash cams even though they have ones built in. It’s about...

    Front and Rear Dashcam Set Up for Model S

    Sharing my Model S dashcam setup with the community. I have two Viofo A119V3 2K cams (one front and one back) both hard wired to the car meaning always powered. I set both to record on motion meaning the cams are always on and any motion (even just shadow moving) recording will start capturing...

    where to find seat back storage net for NextGen seats

    Just bought a used 2014 P85D with NextGen seats. I saw one of my co-worker's 2015 90D has some sort of storage net installed on the back of the two front seats. He said it's aftermarket and it's a screw in but looks very well integrated. I looked online but wasn't able to find it anywhere. The...

    WTB CHAdeMO adapter

    Anyone got one they don't need anymore please let me know. Planning to take a trip to a SuperCharger desert area need one of these to bridge the charging gap or spend many hours at an RV park. Tesla is selling one at their store for $450 but looking for a used one here to save some cost. I may...

    What brand/car did your Tesla replace?

    Nissan Leaf 2013 with 125kmi. Replaced it with a used 2014 Tesla P85D with 75kmi. The Leaf became the hand me down car to my new teen driver, which is good as it's relatively maintenance-free, not too fast, top speed limited, and range limited so less chance for the teenager to get in trouble.

    Used Gen 1 UMC for sale NEMA 14-50 and 5-15 plug

    Bought a used gen 1 UMC thinking I will plug this one at home and carry my Gen2 in the car for charging at work. However, at home I have also a Clipper Creek to charge my Leaf. My plan was to wire in another 240 plug so I can charge both car at the same time. No such luck, as it turn out my...

    Model 3 on display and possible to test drive ?

    Just done a Model 3 test drive at the Sunnyvale service center. Drove a blue one, long range, premium, I think with autopilot but I didn't get a chance to try it. I was told this is a new test drive program for Model 3. I just happen to drop by two days ago and the sales people said they are...
