    Took my son to the airport and parked in lot A at the St. Louis airport. Good setup but the spaces are a but short for the model S. They're made for Leafs.

    Is it just the 2 chargers? Any time limits? 30 amps?
    We fly out of STL about once a year and that would be ideal if I could leave the Model S there plugged in the entire week or so we're away.

    5 spots. 200V at 16A so only 3.2 kW. Plenty if you're traveling.

    Yea, that's pretty wimpy, but ideal if I'm gone a week to top up and hold the charge. Thanks.

    NP.. and it is free (but it's the $13/day lot). I usually park in the $11 lot so it's $2 for the top off... not too bad.

    We usually use the 'Parking Spot' thing, but $12/day isn't bad, I assume there's a weekly rate too. Good info, thanks.

    16A seems like something's wrong. I've seen the car default to 16A if the pilot signal's got an issue (both on a Tesla MC connection as well as a J1772 connection). What kind of chargers are those?

    I didn't take note of the manufacturer, but will when I pick my son up on the 1st, I'll also try another charger to see if that's the issue. It's a J17772 connection, everything was seated firmly.

    I think I've seen a bad J1772 adapter cause this, too. Any issues with other J1772 stations?

    Nope, charges at 30A at most stations.
