    Hi,
    Would appreciate suggestions for long term parking for my Model X close to Ohare in Chicago. We will be travelling from Mar 21 to Mar 31 and need a suitable and safe spot with electric charging capability at economical pricing. Would appreciate experiences and suggestions. Thanks.

    I believe you can park in a place with no charging spot since it is not very long. Refer to Bjorn's video that he lost only 47km (29miles) in 17 days when set Energy saving on and Always connected off.

    That isn't long so as long as you leave with a decent charge, say allow for 10 miles a day loss, 15 if really cold out, and have enough to get home you should be fine.

    But, you can also use PreFlight parking. Very nice facility, very frequent shuttles to ORD and back, very close/easy/safe, and they have a lot of spots reserved for electric cars on the first floor. Each spot has a 110 outlet so you won't charge fast but you'll get +3-4 miles per hour charge, more than enough to be fully charged again by return and maintain, etc.
