    Good experience with destination chargers at hotels

    I've notice a lot of advice on TMC along the lines of "Don't rely on destination chargers!" especially at hotels, and while I agree that you should not rely on any Level 2 charger, even Tesla brand, I wanted to relate my good experiences with them. In the last month, I've stayed at 4 hotels...

    Derry pulls plug on electric car charging stations

    It looks like Derry, NH has decided to shut down the destination chargers installed there in 2018. I charged there several times in the past and always visited local businesses. Too bad I won't be able to do that in the future...

    Tesla Destination charging availability?

    Hey folks, Like with the Superchargers, is there a Tesla or 3rd party app/website in which you can remotely check whether a Tesla Destination Charger is available & not in use?

    Driving from Vancouver, Canada to La Paz, Baja Sur Mexico

    I received my Model S in October and we decided to take it on a road trip at the end of January of this year. We have driven this route many times in my husband Tundra but to do it in my Tesla would be new and challenging. I had some anxiety as to no roadside assistance after Ensenada Baja...

    Swissbäkers closed all of its locations

    This probably means the destination chargers in the Allston location won't be available anymore. Do you know how to notify Tesla so that they will take it off their database? Local bakery Swissbäkers closed all of its locations | Boston.com

    New to Tesla: Distance added per hour of Destination Charge - kW, MPH, Amps, etc

    I am seeking to make the transition to EV, and planning to order a Model S within a few weeks. I have read many of the threads on this forum which have been an invaluable source to learn about charging. I am specifically interested in charging at vacation destinations where I may spend extend...

    Lunch Destinations

    In the spirit of the $100 hamburger in the aviation community, I would like to gather destinations to visit primarily as an excuse to drive my car. The principle behind the $100 hamburger is many people who own personal aircraft will find airports with restaurants then fly there for lunch just...

    3 Destination Chargers - Main Street, Grand Junction, CO

    Hey folks, I wanted to share a little news and experience. In the fall I contacted Tesla about some DC for my office. They offered to provide 4 chargers (I opted for 3) and have them installed for the public to use. These are right on Main Street in Downtown Grand Junction! The additional...

    Miles you expect to obtain from friends, destination chargers, etc. but not from Tesla Superchargers

    Answer only if you’ve owned your Tesla for 6 months or longer (all units in miles). Include informal charging from hotel wall-sockets and RV Parks' NEMA 14-50s — basically anything other than the Superchargers, and not in your house. For this question, please also exclude your main business...

    Charging: Destination Charging vs. Supercharging speed

    I just got back from an 800 mile trip in my Volt, using mostly gas, and I've been trying to estimate where I will stop to charge on that same trip in a Model 3. I've been trying to find a simple answer to my question and I have yet to find it. In simple terms, as volts, amps, and watts do not...

    How many blocks between a hotel and a charger for it to be convenient?

    In some U.S. cities a block is 660 feet or 1/8 of a mile. This is the equivalent of 0.2 km. So think in these terms as you answer the question (your city/town may vary). When I say 'convenient', I mean that you would consider a stay at that hotel and travel via your Tesla to get there. For some...

    Destination Chargers -- what are you guys seeing for payment for use?

    We hope to do a get-away at some point this summer/fall with our MS and was wondering what you guys who stay at places with Destination Chargers are being asked to pay for using them? One place we are considering is asking $10 a charge. Wondering how that compares to what you've seen. I think...

    Destination Charging Application

    Sorry for what I'm sure is a duplicate thread, but has anyone been through the application/approval process? I'm just curious how stringent they are, or if they look for certain property attributes. I have a good friend that owns a restaurant and I've persuaded him to fill out the application...

    Destination Chargers in Australia

    Tesla partners with places such as hotels and clubs to install charging points for customers to use. It seems to be a mutually beneficial relationship. They're known as "destination chargers". The actually connector is the same HPWC (High Power Wall Connector) you would have at home (not...
