    Was at the Harrisburg, PA supercharger just now (3A) and experienced a very fast charge rate. Only second time supercharging my 3, but this is the fastest by far. What’s the fastest others have experienced?

    At 50% state of charge? Pretty good. I'm curious if that number would be higher if your 3 were down lower. At 28% I was pulling 113kW gaining 473 miles per hour.

    117 kW.
    The rate tapers when SoC > 50% or so.

    The miles/hr rate is an average over the entire charging session. It will start out high and isn’t really a good indicator.

    Watch the kW number. That’s instantaneous and will give you a better idea of how quickly you’re charging.

    I’ve gotten 119kw at the Truckee supercharger. I think it hit 490 miles per hour at one point on my screen

    I think this was at the Supercharger just south of Fort Collins, sadly I deleted the original

    I'm envious! I get about 77 kW in my S60 when it is at 10% or so and it tapers rapidly downward from there. Nevertheless, after 199 Supercharging sessions on road trips, it works well enough.

    I'm pretty sure that when I was down to about 10%, I saw over 500 for a few minutes as the charging began.
