    Almost 117kW. Nice. You are on 5.6, I assume?

    Yes, on 5.6. Here's today's charge at San Marcos, TX. One other car at a charger.

    As I mentioned in another thread...

    On 5.6, I'm still seeing a 90 kW cap at Centralia and Woodburn.

    Are those stations rated at 120? If you look on the backside of the charging tower does it read "Supercharger 120?" All of the ones that I've visited have indeed been rated at 120 including Harris Ranch, which required a field upgrade. I'd be surprised if the newer ones are still at 90.

    Just got home.

    Burlington shows the same tapering behavior (i.e. not the newer, less tapered behavior) as Centralia and Woodburn. The most I got out of it was 85 kW, and I didn't see it try going above 90 kW. I have the strong impression all 3 of these are configured for the original "90 kW, heavy tapering" of old.

    No, I didn't take pictures of the labeling because I completely forgot again. On the + side, the taco soup and burger @ Bob's were good.

    I'll be Supercharging tomorrow at Springfield, newer than Woodburn, with my shiny new 5.6 firmware, and I'll let you know if I get close to 125 kW.

    Got this rate at the Burlington NC Supercharger. This is on 5.0 not 5.6.

    Note, you are tapering already. 370 Volts x 284 Amps / 310 W-hr/mi = 339 mph. That is a rate that is already lower than your average of 350 mph; not much, but the taper has started...

    Buzzbuzz and I did Centralia WA, Woodburn OR, Springfield OR, and Grants Pass OR on Friday. We got 90kW on all of them. His car has 5.6.

    The best Supercharging I have had (noticed) is 386 mph at Tejon Ranch in CA. Sorry for the blurry cam picture. My car has SW ver 5.6.

    I'm currently at Woodburn, OR and looks like 120kW Supercharging has been activated! If my calculation is correct I'm getting ~118kW.

    I got 120kW (well, 112kW) at Burlington, WA last night. (On 5.6). Woo-hoo!

    Would be great if someone can re-test Centralia at some point.

    The tapering however did not feel any better. When I drove up I started charging at 150mile range, and I maxed out at 60kW.

    I passed Centrelia WA on my way back to Seattle and I got 108kW for a few minutes and it dropped back to 95-96kW for the remaining 30 mins. I was the only car there.

    Looks like its been activated but doesn't seem as strong as the Woodburn, OR supercharger

    Does anyone have a charge log from one of the sets of REST API tools? teslams and the visualization tools would give us excellent data on the shape of the taper. I haven't managed to find an excuse to drive by a supercharger... On the way home today... hmmm... that would be a 50 mile detour...

    There was data posted way back on the 90 kW charging (by me and others).
