    I just upgraded the charger(s) in my car. I wanted to see where I could get refueled, if not 'super', then at least 'fast', or 10 kW or faster. I was surprised that in the set of Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas, Texas outranks them all, having a slight majority of the faster WC.

    It has improved over the 3 + years of my ownership but it is still a problem.

    The latest misadventure I had was with the parking garage near Hobby airport. They advertised plugs for EV's if you parked there and I called to verify the plug and was promised access to a plug. When I got there they had no idea if they had any plugs. Ended up having to use the valet area which had a single normal plug. I got it plugged in and charging at 3-4 miles/hr which was fine since I was flying out for 4 days. 12 hours later I get an alert on the app that charging has stopped. I called them and they couldn't figure it out. Very annoying!

    Luckily I had just enough juice to get back to College Station. Destination charging is still in it's infancy sadly.

    This list is just the HPWCs. There are also two high amp J1772 locations in Texas-- Two 48A Clipper Creeks in Fredericksburg next to Marktplaz and one 80A Clipper Creek at Iraan Energy House in Iraan. Details on Plugshare for those interested.

    I hear the 48A Clipper Creeks can deliver more kW than a 40A WC (barely). Here are a few more, TX-only, ones (many are co-located with Tesla WC):

    Best Western Premier Crown Chase Inn & Suites | Denton, TX | Electric Car Charging Station | PlugShare (w/ 48A Clipper Creek), Denton Best Western Premier Crown Chase Inn & Suites
    PlugShare 32A Clipper Creek, Moody Gardens
    PlugShare (w/ 48A Clipper Creek) The St. Regis Houston
    Austin St Parking/Charging | Fredericksburg, TX | Electric Car Charging Station | PlugShare (w/ 48A Clipper Creek) Fredricksburg; Austin St Parking/Charging

    Airports and big malls are quite the Easter Egg hunt. 'Up' is North in this image (thank you Google Maps). This is the serpentine path you must take to achieve a higher level of charge:

    It's not barely, it's 20% more. Or course this only matters if the car has a charger >40A (current ones or the earlier Teslas with dual chargers).

    Another good thing about the 48A Fredericksburg chargers is they're on 240V circuits, not the usual 208V for commercial locations.[/QUOTE]

    @KidDoc , website is using a generic photo from (probably) one of their other airports. The chargers at Hobby are definitely outside. It was a bear finding the charger at Bush International Terminal C... just really hard to hunt down, especially under some time pressure.
