    Received 47kWh charged for 54kWh

    I was staying in Newcastle and I booked into Jesmond Dene House as they showed electric car charging. I was first a little shocked that they charged £1 per kWh but doubly so when the car reported that I received 47kWh but the charger reported 54. Is this normal? Am I being charged for the...

    How much extra would you pay for a Hotel with Destination Charging that you could Reserve?

    This is a follow up poll on the poll about if people are willing to stay at a hotel without destination charging. A big drawback seemed to be that it is hard to know if a spot will be available on arrival. One of the posters in the poll brought up the important point about how much a hotel could...

    Unattended destination charger not for FindUs map?

    Was thinking about getting set of chargers installed at or near the town marina but site doesn't meet the criteria to be listed on the Find Us map and in the car since there are no regular staffed hours. The town docks, the local yacht club, and a commercial outdoor playground area all use the...

    Destination Charging etiquette

    First post of a long time lurker here :) so be nice :) Just wondering what the etiquette is of using destination charging.

    Desination Charger Etiquette

    I'm planning a few weekend trips away when my M3 arrives next week, can anyone advise on the etiquette for using destination chargers at hotels and other locations? Many of the hotel charges are free to use for customers so I'm expecting them to be busy, especially in popular locations. Is it...

    Disappearing Destination Chargers? - Southwest Virginia

    I am planning a trip to the Blacksburg/Christiansburg, VA area and happened to look on Tesla's Charging Map to confirm which hotels at Destination Charging options. I know for sure there used to be at least 3 or 4, maybe more, in the NRV area. Now, the map only shows two remaining: the Holiday...

    Is Tesla offering destination chargers for work places?

    That's what I heard, and unless I am mistaken its what the website seems to say. https://www.tesla.com/en_GB/charging-partners?redirect=no Made an application and got a reply that they are only for Hotels and the like. Have I got the wrong end of the stick?

    1kW charging at an airport: Awesome or Weird?

    So, Tesla has added to its 'findus' web-page a 40-slot Destination Charger near the Denver Airport: Fine Parking ( <- Plugshare). Tesla's site indicates it to be 'up to 16kW', but one Model S driver indicates it to be closer to 1kW, via Plugshare. The parking seems to be upscale parking called...

    So what's the trick with Destination Charging?

    After a very successful Destination Charger installed in my local office park, I got to thinking that I should look at the places where I do mid-distance travel and see if those locations would be as interested as I was in free charging hardware from Tesla. I've been really surprised on the...

    Virginia universities

    Hello all! I'm working to get a local business in my old hometown to join the Destination Charging program. The business, historically a minute market, has expanded and has added a craft brewery taproot and has quite a good food menu to offer. The unique and, in my opinion, most appealing...

    Mammoth Mtn

    I'm hoping to take my P85 to Mammoth this coming Winter. That depends in part on if the grey dots along 395 get built in time (Ridgecrest?, Lone Pine?, Bishop?). If there is one indeed in Bishop, then I could charge up there and be good for the 42 miles up the hill and back down. My concern...
