    Hey guys I'm taking a trip to Port Fairy in a couple of weeks and I'm trying to work out if there is any charging available? Obviously no super chargers but does anyone know if there are any other options?

    Cheers!

    There are a number of Caravan Parks in Port Fairy where you can hire a cabin and or a powered site.
    One example

    Thanks Meloccom but I've already got accomodation booked so I could run an extension cord and charge off a 10amp but was wondering if there was an alternative.

    How long does it take to get a full charge on the 60 through 10amp? Probably something I should know but I've only had the car for a week and haven't even driven it yet.

    Quick calculation:

    10A x 240V = 2.4 kW

    Model S - 60 kWh - say ~55 kWh usable / 2.4 kW = 22.91 hrs

    So around 23 hours from ~0% SOC

    You actually get closer to 2kW off a 10A circuit in practice (10km/h typical range, 100% is about 300km typical) so it's probably closer to 30 hours 0-100% indicated. Full usable capacity is indeed about 55kWh on the original 60, not certain with the software limited 75kWh version whether they actually give you access to a full 60kWh (as they could) or if they mimic the old one and retain the anti-bricking buffer within that total.

    I guess it's going to be an interesting test then. Thanks

    My brand new 60 at the predelivery walk through was at 90% and 360km so looks like new 60 has got better range than original 60.

    Thought this thread was about a different Port Fairy (Yes, that's an actual decal on a Tesla).
    Spotted at a Supercharger.
    Quite a few other similar decals on it.
