Seeing Supercharger busy state when not in car

You know how in the Tesla nav it’ll show “3 of 8 stalls available” (for example) when you look at the info for a given Supercharger? Is there any way we can get that in-use status when we’re not in the car, like on some website? I think the answer is “no,” but I thought I’d ask just in case someone knows something magical.

Note: I know the phone app shows this for the few nearest chargers. But beyond those...

Not that I'm aware of either. Is this just a matter of curiosity to see what the typical usage levels are? Surely anything past what the app shows you will have changed by the time you got there.

It shows up in the charging screen of the app.

Yep. As I mentioned in the OP, I know the app shows a few close ones. But there's no way (I think) of having it show some other one.

Thanks, @davewill, for the pointer to TezLab. Never heard of that. I'll check it out!

For a little while one of the forum gurus was aggregating the data and publishing it on a web site. Tesla contacted him and convinced him to take it down - I think they were concerned about competitors learning too much from analyzing the data.

As noted above, you’ll always see the four closest to you on the Charging page of the Tesla phone app these days.

Are you sure this is total supercharger usage at each site, or is it just the number of TezLab users at each site? I didn't think Tesla made that data available publicly.
The numbers match the "nearby" numbers in the Tesla app, and there seem to be too many occupied for it to be just Tezlab users.

TezLab works! Thanks again, @davewill!

I had to create an account, and download their app on my phone. At the bottom of the main screen, there is a Find Nearby Superchargers button. That takes you to a map centered on your location, with blue lightning bolt tags on nearby Supercharger locations.

But!

But you can scroll and zoom the map to look at the geography you really want. Good enough for my purposes! Touching the tag for Corning, CA, I see only 2 open stalls at the moment.

The initial popup is sometimes dated (you'll see how long ago it was updated at the bottom of the popup). Clicking the popup or exiting the map and reloading it will get you a refreshed number.
