    Asked navigation to show me all the superchargers around the area and the Altamonte Springs result doesn’t have the typical supercharger information. Really confused here...

    As OP mentioned I think his suspicion is due to the usual info missing - amenities, max kW, # of stalls, stall use, etc.

    But...sometimes that info is missing for one reason or another. Maybe in this case, because it's so new?

    How can I determine real electrons from counterfeit electrons? :)

    They are different flavors, and they, um, they, oh, never mind......


    :D


    Seriously, though, not sure how a 'fake SuC' would get on the Tesla Nav. Maybe on Plugshare or other app. (I even doubt that...)

    @XxCyberHackerxX's first instinct on seeing incomplete data is that a "counterfeit" Supercharger got entered into the system? I'm calling shenanigans on your username.

    That Altamonte Springs Supercharger is going to be quite close to me - looking forward to it - although I typically just charge overnight!

    The location you've found isn't on the Tesla nav. It's on Google Maps. People can add whatever they want to it. In this case, some moron has entered a Tesla supercharger that isn't open yet with absolutely NO indication that it's not open.

    You can click "Suggest an edit" (blue text on the left) and choose the "Doesn't exist" option.

    I highly expect (not 100%) that Google automatically imports these from Tesla directly (Plugshare also imports them direct) so there is no need to manually add them.

    And I thought it was like those fake ATMs that steal your PIN. In the case of a counterfeit Supercharger, does it steal electrons from your battery and you end up with less charge than when you started? ;)
