    I've recently read on either this forum or another Tesla section of another EV forum that I won't Speak about, that someone posted some calculations of Speed vs Recharge times on Superchargers.

    Try as as I may I can't find it now. I wonder if anyone here can advise please?

    To summarise if I want to go from A to B as quickly as possible, there is clearly a trade off between getting there by driving to fast meaning a longer stop at the supercharger vs travelling to slow with less stops/ time at the superchargers.

    I think I remembered the sweet spot being around 75 mph, but I would like to get some confirmations.
