    Plugged in for a quick juice up at West Hartford CT supercharger and immediately got to 341 mph / 103 kWh with AC on. After a few minutes it dropped to the usual 90 kWh I get at this location.

    I've charged at this location a handful of times with similar conditions and battery level and never been over ~90 kWh.

    Is tesla testing out ramping up the supercharger speed?

    Many factors in place...was anyone on the paired charger you used? What type of battery (you probably don't have an A battery).. What was percent soc when charging in the past?

    I got 370 mi/hr charge on Monday in Napa, no one else was there and that is the highest i have seen, but it was about 6:30pm PST in about 87 degree weather, we did have the AC going but on very low, with Range mode on and about 90 miles remaining in the battery.

    I have seen between 182 and 370 mi/hr, but more commonly between 240 and 340 mi/hr charging, which then begins to ramp down as it gets closer to topping off.

    Reporting mph rates isn't really helpful, as it's an average over the session. Better to report charging in kW as that is the instantaneous power-- you can either change the display to show it or just multiply the V x A.

    Values seen by me in Napa were 373 mi/hr, 293 A, and 370 V.

    Highest ive seen to date was 303A at 371V at the Petaluma, Ca supercharger. It was about 9:30PM and I was the only one there.

    @JPUConn - Please take a picture of the battery label sticker under the front passenger wheel.

    You mean kW, not kWh.

    Hmm. Then it is very odd that you do not normally see rates above 90 kW.
