    Supercharger - Pahrump, NV

    Copy. The last time I was in Pahrump (admittedly back in the early 90s) I recall one or two just off the main downtown area on side streets. At least they appeared to be thus.

    Supercharger - Pahrump, NV

    Pahrump is in Nye County, Nevada. Tesla should have an option to have chronically slow Supercharging speeds at a few stalls, say 20kW. After all, in Nye County a certain pastime is perfectly legal (unlike Las Vegas and Clark County) and likely proximate to this location. 🤫🤫

    TYPE 2 CHARGER SPEEDS

    Beans, you contradicted yourself. Your first statement is correct. You should have dropped the "h" from the second as you are referring to rate. Hence, the product is 7,020 watts, or 7.02 kilowatts. On the subject of the onboard chargers in Tesla vehicles, Tesla has dicked around with the...

    Supercharger - Bakersfield, CA - Olive Drive (Permit Applied 1/23/24)

    It is nice to learn that Tesla is starting to place Superchargers closer together that are on opposite sides of the highways. For SR99, this is handy for northbound drivers. No need to exit at Rosedale Highway and make a couple of left-hand turns to reach the Supercharger at the Doubletree...

    Any good destination charging options in Hanford, CA?

    Rocky, I don't know our correspondent's route, but I would assume that he will be using highway 43 to and from Interstate 5, as it is the most direct and likely fastest route from Phoenix. Otherwise, his choice would be to take highway 99 to Visalia, then west to Hanford or take Interstate 5...

    Met my best friend in flat and cloudy Bakersfield for lunch on Wednesday (he drives up from El Lay) so I managed to get the new one there. Before this opened, I would leave home with about 80% and charge from 55% back up to 80% in Visalia, meet him for lunch, then hit Traver on the way home for...

    To clarify: The lens cover is glued in place onto the hinge arm that opens and closes the charge port. I was in the garage when my wife came home and opened up the port using the button on the mobile connector. The lens just slid right off its moorings. When I inspected the detachment area...

    Meanwhile, in other news: Wednesday when my wife opened the charge flap on her M3, the flap portion fell off. There were no sorts of issues that would have resulted in the flap snapping from its hinge. El Cheapo design. The Ranger came out this morning to replace the entire charge port. My...

    For most women, their wedding date is probably the most important day in their lives, eclipsing their birthday. Hence, their anniversary is an annual reminder of that supposedly blissful day. Secondary reasons could include the attention received by proclaiming their anniversary date to...

    Gotcha, thanks! I guess I have always used the term, "finite." All our brains have a finite capacity to absorb, process, and execute. Funny how we keep on coming up with neologisms that nudge out the old-fashioned terms. Just reflecting on my ever-decreasing mental bandwidth. PS---I learned...

    Supercharger - Mammoth Lakes, CA - Old Mammoth Rd. (LIVE 24 Nov 2023, 12 V3 + 4 L2)

    Supercharger - Weed, CA (under construction, 16 V4 stalls)

    If you look carefully in the photo in the middle left-hand part above the Supercharger stalls, there appears to be a "Hampton Inn & Suites" illuminated sign. I do not think that Weed has a Hampton Inn. This leads me to believe that the photograph is some sort of stock photo from another...

    Supercharger - Mammoth Lakes, CA - Old Mammoth Rd. (LIVE 24 Nov 2023, 12 V3 + 4 L2)

    The accountant in me concludes that all the R&D, materials, labor, and overhead for Superchargers only amounts to 6¢ more than a level 2 HPWC that retails for a couple of hundred. Sure, much of the construction benefits both types of installations and should be allocated accordingly. I would...

    Supercharger - Visalia, CA - Ave 280 (permit ready to issue 11/28/23, 12 V3)

    Great to see another Supercharger along 99 in the Visalia/SR 198 area. That should help with people visiting the Park. Now I wish Tesla would redouble their efforts to put two or three more in the Bakersfield area. The one that is close to opening is great. Famoso/McFarland if it comes to...

    David, That sentiment is regrettably missing from a large segment of the population. My small samples from the past 24 months or so: Inexperienced drivers blindly follow the navigation. Inexperienced drivers are very cautious about range anxiety. Accordingly, they don't unplug at 65% to...

    I would be hesitant to believe that Interstate 15 is the preferred route for truckers to head from Reno or Fremont to Austin.
