    Charting from REST API data

    Unless I miscounted, there's 18 supercharges in here:

    I'll try to drill in to some detail next.

    Here's a single chart from (I think) Atascadero. Note that the timeline is off by an hour (my spreadsheet is off by 1 due to DST change). When we were at Harris, we were observing that sometimes the Superchargers will cut off briefly (when they overheat?). In this chart you can see examples. In the corresponding video footage, I can hear a "clunk clunk" around when that first break in the chart occurs.

    I stand corrected...
    Update 1: Judging by the footage of passerbys that came from the left side of my vehicle into front view, the timing is very curious. It appears they might have jiggled the handle and/or tapped the button on the plug.
    Update 2: This break in the chart is me moving the car to a different plug to see if the charging rate would be different.


    Here's Tejon around noon (90-100°F temperature, log says 34.5°C or 94.1°F) the next day:
