    The advantage play is to plug into 1B so no one can pair with you!

    Supercharger - Tacoma, WA - S. 40th St. (permit Jun 2023, 12 V3 stalls)

    I agree that the lot behind Half Price Books is less busy, but it's currently signed as church parking only so something would have to be resolved there. As an aside, I have fond memories of going to that Red Robin when I was a little kid. It's been in that location for at least 40 years!

    Probably just need to send an employee out from Austin or San Antonio to commission it.

    I had my funniest road rage incident in South Jersey a couple years ago. Some ~65yo guy in a Cadillac convertible just started yelling at me through my open window as he passed me on a 4-lane highway: "You think you're so damn cool in your f'ing Tesla?!?" LOL We hadn't even travelled in the...

    You mean they have snow plows? :) Or was it the lack of hills or powdery snow?

    I'm just happy I no longer have to range charge in Ozark or Brinkley... or make a huge diversion to Little Rock. Definitely did one of those things on at least two occasions.

    Figured you might be excited about this one!

    Supercharger - Burley, ID - Pomerelle Ave

    Also, once they put one in Mountain Home, it will be possible for through travelers to just skip Boise. Just do something like Ontario-Mountain Home-Burley-Tremonton.

    Supercharger - Burley, ID - Pomerelle Ave

    It's no big deal to you being from Boise, but the 159-mile Boise to Burley stretch sucks for through traffic. It's mostly 80mph speed limits and it can be windy, so those of us with <300 rated mile cars have to either do a range charge on either end (very slow in the old S/X models) or drive...

    Another Idaho supercharger for @Rocky_H !

    Supercharger- Seattle, WA - Meridian Ave N (under construction Jan 2024, 12 V3 + L2)

    The cabinets and switch gear are now in place. Waiting for pedestals, transformer, meter, and clean up (still some piles of dirt). Also possibly parking stops and bollards, but those are kind of optional these days.

    Cool throne! And I actually recognized the supercharger in Norden! That town was so far out there that it didn't feel like I was in Germany any more. The gas station didn't even have Bockwurst! :)

    Thank you for doing the leg work. That is about what I figured, because we have very little in the way of state-funded EV charging, especially when compared to neighboring regions like BC and OR. The one item that seems worthwhile and at least marginally related is the electrification of...

    Well sure, signage would have been helpful! When I was there, there was one or two signs and then the trail of bread crumbs died like a half mile from the supercharger. And the red dot in the Nav was also nowhere near the supercharger. @Bighorn had the same issue, so it wasn't just me. I...

    Switching from v2 to v3 would be very costly. Might as well just keep the old site and build a new v3 (or v4!) site, which is what they are doing.

    Ha! I should have thought to look in this thread. Impressive that we have a 10+ year old thread on here! Those are definitely v1 90kW stalls. There were still a few of those around when I started Tesla road tripping in 2016, but they were pretty rare. Most of them must have been upgraded in...

    Supercharger - Farmington, NM

    Definitely hadn't always been 150kW. This station is 10 years old! Superchargers were either 90kW or 120kW max at that time. It's before my time but I know they maxed out at 120kW (300 amps and 400 volts) when I started driving Teslas in 2016).

    Is this where all the $75 registration fees are going? How much have they taken in on that one so far? And how much charging infrastructure has the state actually built? Must be the worst ROI in government and that's really saying something!

    Drove by last night and it looks like a bunch of the underground trenching and work leading to the pedestals has been ocmpleted. Still don't see a transformer though. And the pedestals, cabinets, and switchgear all need to be put in place. Nice to see some progress at least.

    I cleared all but the Pacific Time Zone as recently as 2 years ago. I remember a tinge of disappointment mixed with relief when I learned that Lodi, NJ opened while I was sleeping in SoCal. The relief part was because I had decided that if nothing opened while I slept I was going to try a 48...

    In terms of what I saw on the highways, I would say France is quite a bit ahead of Germany, yes. It was actually pretty interesting to see the wide range of EV infrastructures from country to country. Italy was basically on infrastructure for tourists (didn't see many EVs with Italian plates)...

    In France they had electronic signs on the freeway warning of chargers that were inoperable. It's incredible how far behind we are in terms of charging infrastructure.

    I'm obviously talking about the post where you suggest that Blackstone is the hold up. There's no reason to believe that. The "hundred" or "hundreds" debate you created with yourself is practically a semantical argument. The fact that they've built a hundred superchargers and have a good...

    Whether they've built 100 or 200 superchargers is fairly immaterial. Let's not act as if Big Earl got caught in some big lie lol.

    Charging in and around Roswell, NM

    Just drive through El Paso and Van Horn. Google Maps says it's 1 minute slower than the Roswell route. I can assure you, it will be much faster when you consider the charging times. Also no range anxiety or charger anxiety when you stick to the interstates.

    When you get the chance, could you toggle from percentage to miles in the Display tab of your Settings? It doesn't matter what percent you are at when you do this. If you give us both numbers at the same time, we will be able to determine how many Rated Miles your battery has at 100%, which...

    Supercharger - Sisters, OR (under construction Jan 2024, 8 V3 stalls)

    The only Tesla that might have a tough time making the drive from Corvallis to Sisters on a full charge would be a degraded S60 (in winter). Is that what you are driving? If so, detouring to Detroit Lakes for a top off only adds 23 minutes.

    Supercharger - Willcox, AZ

    The latches tend to go bad on the v2s. The cables are heavier and can get blown off the holster in high winds. Also the cable rigidity changes quite a bit at varying temperatures so this could be a factor in places with wide temperature swings (most of the Central US).

    What ImScotty said. Montana is the Western Australia of the USA. There are a few small towns in between, but they might even have power supply issues. Also the early ones were v2s and now these towns are getting v3s so it kind of makes sense.
