    Since Tesla updated the maximum power of V2 superchargers to 150kW (in North America for now), the data in supercharge.info is inconsistent. Some sites were updated to 150kW while other remained 120kW. No site in New England was updated, even though the car navigation shows all non-urban supercharger in the area as 150kW. Please update the site to match the in-car navigation data.

    There are about 1,531 Superchargers so what's the strategy for an unpaid hobbyist to accomplish updating the 150 kW sites?

    Then after that, how about doing that again for 250 kW sites?

    It sounds like we need to hire a robust software engineer team to do just that.

    It really isn't that hard to do a mass update in a database. For example, with MySQL you would do this with a simple query such as:

    UPDATE supercharges SET power = 150 WHERE power = 120 AND region = 'NA';

    As for 250kW sites, Tesla won't be able to update all V2 sites to V3 by just a software update, so there is no need for mass update.

    So, are you going to choose a Supercharger based upon it's charge rate? Is your life going to change at all based upon the charge rate?

    @eladts, since you are obviously such a great website designer and have all of the answers, when is your site coming online?

    It is easy if they all are but it is doubtful that all 1,531 Superchargers are just straight up 120 kW.

    Obviously the authoritative data source is the car navigation. Isn't there a way to export this data from rooted cars? That would save the tedious work of manually checking and updating every site in NA.

    It's probably easiest to just batch change all of them, then go through and revert the few that are still maxing @ 120 kW .

    Now, you are talking!

    We need a volunteer to submit the exported database to Supercharge.info webmaster.

    I don't understand why Tesla keeps two versions of their supercharger database, on for the cars and one for their web site and their partners. The one in the cars seems much more up-to-date, so why not use it on the web as well?

    I agree. I believe there is some data like capacity and usage patterns that they don't want to be free for all, but they could simply not display this on the website. But having a supercharger listed as 120kW on the website and 150kW on the in-car nav simultaneously makes no sense.
