New MS60 supercharging at max 70kw. Is this normal?

    I've supercharged twice now at Atlantic Station in Atlanta. First time was max 50kw and now on the second try it maxed out at 75kw.

    Note: I pulled in with about 50 miles range and the temps were about 55 degrees outside. One other Tesla charging but not on the stall next to me.

    Should I be getting more juice? 100+kw?

    I talked with another Tesla owner at the station and he was pulling 75kw on his 85D also.

    Your feedback is appreciated!

    Yes. Several supercharges don't provide full output.

    Basis for that claim? Most superchargers should provide 100+ kw rates at least initially provided low state of charge and an unpaired stall has been selected.

    This news could be very disappointing, especially on a long trip with many supercharger stops. I was hoping for a faster charge rate.

    I have yet to see more than 60kW. I keep hearing excuses how the battery is not drained enough when I charge, The Battery is not warm enough, Its too cold etc. I drove over 30 minutes and battery was at 22% and I could not get more than 60kW this evening and I sat there and waited over an hour to get close to an 80% charge. This is not what I was expecting at all.

    It's not always at max rate. Depends on your SoC.

    I have been getting 94kw or 323 miles/hour until about 70-80% then begins to taper down. 2016 60D refresh AP2.

    Yes, this is the embarrassing dirty secret the Tesla salesman doesn't tell you - or at least they didn't tell me.

    For example, Burbank, CA only gives 35 kW charge rate at maximum. Additionally, if someone is using the charging stall adjacent to you, you will not get the full rate.

    NOLA_Mike has posted some nice threads.

    Here's another one:

    I've never seen more than 75kw but I've only used one Supercharger three times.

    60 D bought Dec 2016.

    Is this a 60 or a software limited 75? If an actual 60 kwh, then 75KW may be the max that battery can take. The smaller the capacity, the lower the maximum charge rate.

    It's a new 60, so software limited 75.

    It sounds like many Tesla owners are experiencing slow charge rates, not just me. Thanks for all the feedback everyone. Hopefully we can get to the bottom of the issue.
