    Lifetime Energy Consumption for my Model S in Boston Area after 4 years

    The car seems to only account for the energy it "uses" while driving. In the past 3 weeks, I have only driven my Tesla 40 miles. It was charged to 240 miles and now is has 130 miles left. So....it "lost" 70 miles of range over a 3 week period due to self discharge. That is over 1,200 miles...

    Supercharger - Yuma, AZ

    There are multiple reports on PlugShare that this site has been repaired and ALL chargers are working. One person seems to have some inside info and reported that they were told that the site has been successfully fixed. Thank goodness! Now I can go visit San Diego again :) Appears that the...

    Supercharger - Ehrenberg, AZ

    Are you sure he wasn't thinking that little generator in the photo was going to charge your car? Just kidding. Pretty amazing if they really have this online for Thanksgiving. Maybe they can build one of these V3 sites in Yuma, that would be awesome! Thanks for posting photos!

    Supercharger - Yuma, AZ

    I knew the 2.5 hour estimate was wrong, as another car would eventually leave. Problem I had was the 100D in front of me plugged in roughly 2 minutes before me and took a very loooong time to charge (he must have arrived near 0 and charged to 90% or more) Unfortunately, the second car that...

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA (Qualcomm / Pacific Heights Blvd., 12 V2 stalls)

    Well, this probably explains why Tesla's phone recording said, "your hold time is greater than 40 minutes" when I tried to report a broken charger at Gila Bend, AZ and 4 broken chargers in Yuma, AZ. Now you can't even charge in San Diego when you finally get there without going to an alternate...

    Supercharger - Yuma, AZ

    1A, 1B, 4A, 4B **STILL BROKEN** as of 10/13 Car didn't say reduced service on 10/13, so I decided to go there. Big mistake. Two cars had just arrived and took 2 & 3....so I got 30 kW charge rate. Car said "2 Hours and 30 Minutes to continue your trip". That was fun.... It said reduced...

    Supercharger - Payson AZ

    I have done this drive with my S90D. 100% charged a few miles from where the Scottsdale supercharger is located. Made it fine. HOWEVER, the navigation system freaked out and said I wasn't going to make it. I pulled over in Fountain Hills to review the route and found that the Tesla...

    Supercharger - San Diego CA - A Street (LIVE 27 Jun 2018, 16 Urban type)

    Seems to be working quite well at the new San Diego downtown Supercharger. The price of entrance seems to be preventing lines. However, the tight spaces make me super nervous to use that site. I'm not sure I will ever try charging there.... That is a miss on Tesla's part. Expensive cars for...

    Supercharger - San Diego CA - A Street (LIVE 27 Jun 2018, 16 Urban type)

    I agree completely! $8/hour parking fee is totally fair for a limited resource in a difficult location. If Tesla allows a parking fee, I think we need to see this differently. We need to be happy that Tesla was able to find a suitable host location. If that host didn't make a profit, this...

    Supercharger - Sedona AZ

    Had a chance to swing by on my way out of Sedona today. I was quite surprised to see the two guys working. Great people from Alabama that seemed excited about the charger (same guys that were working on the charger near I-17 & 101). Today, they were changing out the concrete blocks under the...

    Supercharger - Gila Bend, AZ

    Charged here on March 10th. Arrived with high state of charge and received about 85 kW charge rate with normal taper. Was at the charger for maybe 10-15 minutes and charged from 194 -> 229 rated miles (gain of 35 miles). This was at stall "1B". Charged here on March 14th. Arrived with 75...

    Supercharger - Gila Bend, AZ

    I called Tesla Wednesday night (roadside assistance number)to see if they had a status update on this. I was told that they would call or email me the next day with an update.....But they never responded. Anyone else want to give them a ring too?

    Supercharger - Kayenta, AZ

    I just called the Burger King in Kayenta, AZ to see if they have noticed any construction in their parking lot for an electric car charger. The response, "nope, we only see 18 wheelers here. Diesel." followed by a slight chuckle. Next, I called the Hampton Inn - just next door to the Burger...

    Supercharger - Globe, AZ

    AZAX456 - No, I don't have a place up there where I can charge. My fiancé has parents that are working on purchasing a cabin up there, but I'm not so sure they will let me install an outlet. I'm hoping they will let me use an existing 110 outlet, but the place is really old and I'm not sure if...

    Supercharger - Globe, AZ

    I would LOVE to see Globe, AZ and/or Payson, AZ get a supercharger. Right now, from Scottsdale to Pinetop, AZ and back is 387 rated miles (assuming returning with ZERO miles). That is a TREMENDOUS challenge. Pinetop, AZ (and pretty much ALL of Eastern, AZ) is completely without any charging...

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA (Qualcomm / Pacific Heights Blvd., 12 V2 stalls)

    I am from Scottsdale, AZ and love to visit San Diego multiple times per year. To have a supercharger so close to the 8 freeway in the San Diego area would make it so much easier to drive the Model S. I like that Fashion Valley has food choices, so I won't be sitting around in a parking lot...

    Charging time Scottsdale -> San Diego

    I was curious if anyone that has made this trip several times might be able to comment as to how long they stopped to charge along the way. I have visited every supercharger along this route, so I am familiar with their surroundings. Let's assume model 85D Seems like I could get to Yuma with...

    Audi Q7 - the Model X slayer?

    Looks like Audi may be using a different battery on the Q7 PHEV. Chargedevs.com is showing 17.3 kWh for the battery. Maybe it will get 20-25 miles range. I suppose it helps that the new design is more aerodynamic and sheds 700 pounds too.

    Supercharger - Casa Grande, AZ

    In regard to the thought about the charge tapering, here are two good resources to see where tapering occurs in the charge curve..... http://teslaowner.wordpress.com/2014/05/07/charge-off-90kw-vs-120kw/...

    Supercharger - Indio, CA (LIVE, 36 V3 + 8 V2 + 2 Urban stalls)

    Maybe Tesla will get El Centro up and running next. Then the Phx - San Diego route will be setup nicely.

    Supercharger - Wickenburg, AZ

    I definitely count 6 poles where the signs are mounted (can see in the posted photos), so that sounds right that there will be 6 slots at this location.

    Supercharger - Gila Bend, AZ

    On 2/27, Tyl posted great photos. Some of these photos show where the utility transformer will be located (by the drive through window on the concrete pad with some conduit pipes sticking out). Due to Tyl's post, I was able to describe in advance to my girlfriend as to where she needed to take...

    Supercharger - Gila Bend, AZ

    Drove by again on 3/22 (yesterday) and the utility transformer is still missing. The pad is still empty, awaiting the utility company to install their transformer. Couldn't take a photo, as it was dusk.

    Supercharger - Gila Bend, AZ

    On Saturday (March 15), I drove by this site and my wonderful girlfriend was able to snap this photo as we drove by. As you will notice....the pad is still missing the transformer.
