    It might be useful to add a set of photos of each location. This would aid in identifying the sites "on the ground."

    This wiki is going to get really hard to maintain really quickly. Is it even worth it?

    Hello everyone, just stumbled across the supercharger wiki. I guess we will be seeing a lot of actions here in next few months. This wiki already has important information. I had few more suggestions on things that can be helpful during charging break. Tesla wants to build supercharger at locations, where people would like to stop and enjoy their break. It will be useful to add following things.

    (1) Amenities
    (2) Things to do nearby
    (3) Food and Restaurant Recommendations

    Please see the table I posted in Michigan Supercharger Thread.

    This is a great idea. How about adding a link to a separate wiki for each supercharger location for more detailed notes? This could include things that I learned at each supercharger location that I visited and would have been helpful to know ahead of time like "located behind the chilis- nearby gas station/convenience store. Outlet mall nearby and accessible by a pedestrian walkway" for the Barstow supercharger or "IN-N-OUT located nearby, but at the opposite side of travel plaza from the supercharger and requires crossing three separate crosswalks to get there" for Tejon Ranch.

    This would be insanely valuable if Tesla would link the Supercharger wiki into the car. Things to do nearby, etc.

    @wraithnot & @palpatine

    I agree, having a link to a separate wiki is a better idea then crowding information on one page. We can have only vital information on the main page and then can decide what information can go on dedicated page for the supercharger. It would be important to know POI before hand, to save time at the stop, as after Tesla changed the standard it won't take long to fill up the charge again. It will also avoid hogging of the supercharger bays.

    FWIW, as part of the last update to the page, Tesla now has POI information for each supercharger if you click on the name in the list. For example, Gilroy Supercharger | Tesla Motors

    Given how long it took me to notice they added that, I figured some others may not have seen it yet...

    Thank you for noticing. I certainly had no idea about it. This effectively solves what we were discussing lately.

    Given that the superchargers show up in "Places" on the nav screen with 4.5, it would seem that one should be able to access that from any old web browser.

    If not, why not?

    I have just updated this list.
    ALL are either Open or heavy under construction, not just filed for permit.

    Hope I have not messed up any protocol.

    Can someone PLEASE also have a thread for EUROPE Supercharger Stations (Norway's is up and running)

    I think there is supposed to be one in/near Providence, RI, that one is missing from your list.

    Does anyone have Pics of this to confirm it is under construction?
    It may have a permit, but not on the list until photos show substantial construction progress and address/location.

    Should there not be columns on the wiki for specific info about the state of development at each site? (120KW-capable, Solar, Battery Backup, Swap Station on-site, etc)

    I'm just glad to know that the ones on this list are open and operating.
    I have NO idea how anyone would confirm, update and then accurately add that much additional data to this list.

    Regarding Swap Stations: I think that should be its own Independent Wiki List.
    I don't see that function occurring at a typical SC station.

    I fail to see why it would be any more difficult than reporting the status of new Supercharger construction. Somebody would make note of those things when using a given supercharger.

    120KW-capable: Simple calculation using your observed charge rate (rate > 90KW = 120KW)
    Solar array: Self-evident from observing the site
    Battery backup: More difficult as some are reportedly fairly well hidden, but once one knows what to look for they shouldn't be hard to spot
    Swap station: Same as battery backup. Don't really think they need their own wiki, as they will always be located at a pre-existing Supercharger. Probably won't see many of these for a while.

    The new Southbound supercharger location in Darien, Connecticut on I-95 is between exits 9 and 10 (just after passing exit 10). Both this site and the TeslaMotors.com site have INCORRECT information about its location with the wrong exit numbers. I hope these can be corrected SOON since out of state drivers will feel that they missed the location and then, perhaps, pass by it later.

    Just to clarify ... the description on Tesla's Supercharger main page is incorrect; saying that it is between Exit 10 & 11 -- however, the actual Darien Southbound Supercharger page seems to have the correct description (I-95 South after Exit 10).
