    Did they swap out the charging cables/adapters at the DE supercharger? They seemed different to me this morning in route to NJ/NY.

    If so, I wonder what prompted it.

    Can you quantify how they seem different?

    Quantify? Not really...

    More subjective - seemed to be a different feel to the adapter when I plugged in. The four stalls had different charging adapters in the past. I will check the others when I do my return trip later this week.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they did. Last time I used it they seemed pretty beat up, unlock button on the one stall hardly worked.

    I had problems charging there the week before last - called it in and they said 3 out of 4 were reporting "health" issues.

    I don't use superchargers often, in fact I've used the DE supercharger for two trips so far and that's it. I had no problems on either trip, and I don't remember a difference between them. One trip was back in September, but my 2nd trip was recent. I think I charged in the first and third spaces, and in fact I got ~97 kW / 330 mph on Monday 1/20. Maybe they fixed whatever the problem was just before MLK weekend.
