    I remember reading about the horror stories of owners reporting Superchargers experiencing hours long backups last year in CA. Will history repeat itself?

    Your second anti-Tesla post of the day. Dare I use the "t" word? If I recall correctly, part of a highway was closed because of fire or something diverting traffic to the highway where this supercharger was located-- and since then another supercharger opened nearby.

    It's a valid question. If I was in CA planning SC use on a Thanksgiving week road trip, I would be very concerned about availability.

    Yeah, that's an old picture. The Superchargers that used to get congested will have alternate locations nearby, a few miles away but on the same highway.

    Why the concern, bro1999? Are you planning on taking a trip from Maryland to CA in your Tesla? It shouldn't be a problem.

    my experience using the super chargers in SF is that they are overloaded (this was last December) During the non holiday time frame.
    I suspect that the superchargers will be slightly better this year.
