    Apparently Brisbane DFO (by the airport) is the location for the new Brisbane Supercharger.

    And. Nope. False alarm. Big installation but not Superchargers. (Moderator, feel free to delete this thread).

    It's a pity because somewhere like that would be good - if you're on a trip up the M1 then diverting into the city to visit the Supercharger is pretty suboptimal.

    Agree. Superchargers have supposedly long been planned for this sort of area.

    It is a big Evie site though so still useful for anyone who’s happy to pay.

    Ahh nice, that's not even listed on Evie's map.

    Moderators note.
    Changed the title to reflect that this is a potential EVIE Charge station.

    For the information of those not in the know: DFO = Direct Factory Outlet.

    4 X 50kW Tritium?

    Hopefully Evie comes up with a better charging rate for these slower chargers than their other sites.
    At 35c/kWh + 25c/min, it will be about 70c/kWh.

    Their ultra rapid costs are clearly tied to the huge cost in deploying this infrastructure. Consider than the 4 stall site shown above requires only about 30% of the power connection of one of their 2 stall ultra-rapid sites. I wouldn't assume that their ultra-rapid prices would be indicative of a 50 kW charger.

    Actually I just checked their Buderim 50 kW charger, its free! (Thought that might be a "first month" introductory rate)

    Might want to update it again since the picture seems to indicate that it'll be 4x50kW.
