    Does anyone know of an HPC in or near Del Mar where I could charge my roadster?

    The service center is about ten miles from Del Mar. it has eight HPWC for public use right out front.

    I assume the service center is in San Diego and with the HPWC, I can hook my roadster up directly with no adapter?
    Thanks,

    It looks like I asked a couple of relatively stupid questions here, :tongue: that I have now answered myself. Please disregard the last two stupid questions.:biggrin:

    HPWCs won't work for Roadsters, as you've probably figured out, though the service center surely has some way to charge them. But last I checked, the Tesla Store at UTC (also around 10 miles from Del Mar) had a couple of HPCs. This info is somewhat dated, so call the store to make sure.

    Thanks for the info Mark. I wasn't clear on the difference between the HPC and the HPWC. I understand now that the HPC is for the roadster and the HPWC is for the model S. With the logistics of my trip from Long Beach to Del Mar and back, I'm thinking about taking the train from San Juan Capistrano to Solana Beach. I haven't been on a train in 35 years so maybe it's time. :biggrin:

    I live in Del Mar (on the hill, walking distance to track/village/beach). You're welcome to borrow my garage to charge your roadster. I've got a 40A/220v roadster charger...PM me if you're interested. also on plugshare.

    Clarie's in Solono Beach is where the Tesla LA club stopped a few years ago. They have added a charger to their solar array since (thanks to us?). We also had a meet at Torrey Pines (shown) that has a few Blinks in the parking garage.

    Thank you DRM for the kind offer. And thank you Eric for the info. I did take the train down and rode back with family. It was pretty cool. The waiting room at the San Juan Capistrano station was about 150 square feet and very quaint, ( I had it to myself). Unlike flying, there was almost no one on the train, what a pleasure!
