    Has anyone charged their Model S with the CHAdeMo at Rouse's Market in New Orleans? The Plugshare comments of it's working, then it's overheating after 10-15 min, now it's working ok really aren't helpful because none of the comments specify if it was charging a Leaf or a Tesla. My concern is the "working" comments come from Leaf owners and the "overheating" comments come from Tesla owners, and we may not be able to depend on it.

    Nissan CHAdeMO chargers are very, very sensitive to cleaning and maintenance. That is well documented in European fora as well as US ones. the solutions usually are cleaning all the filters, as many as five of them, depending on the CHAdeMO version.

    In the meantime the conservative approach that I use is charge for ten minutes, recycle and change for another ten minutes, repeat until complete. That is still much faster than a non-fast DC charger.

    Rouses now has a Tesla Adapter for use by those without their own. Ask staff to borrow; leave them your Fob for security.

    Can I call it a Po' Boy's Supercharger?
