    Good morning,
    I am a very new MS owner
    I am planning a trip from DC area all the way to Boston next month
    Trip planner recommended 2 stops for charging, one of the SC stops has only 4 super chargers.
    What are the likelihood of having to wait in a long line to charge - two young kids in the car-

    Thank you

    Your best bet is to ask this in the appropriate regional forum for the specific chargers you have questions about.

    Congrats on the S!

    I'd assume you're talking about:

    Darien, CT (south)
    I-95 South after exit 10

    There's another one nearby in the other direction or you can take a slight detour towards the Greenwich, CT supercharger. I don't think you'll have any problem accessing any of them, and if so would be less than 30 minutes waiting for a spot.

    The odds are super low. I Supercharged about 900 times with my Model S. It happens very rarely.

    If you select one of the superchargers on your screen it will display how many empty slots are available. Helps you to avoid the busier ones.

    Only a very few urban chargers have congestion issues. Sometimes, during holidays or special events those effected chargers can also get busier. (Like on the way to Vegas during Thanksgiving weekends.)
