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

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.

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.)
