    5.11.2019: To reply to some of the questions. There is a green transformer box installed at the far end.
    Will try to get a picture next time and also get a picture of the label requested.

    The cleanup is done and lines are painted. It *looks* like a typical operational lineup so I backed in and tried one. But it was a no go. Possibly it needs a final inspection before they can power it up?

    I didn’t take photos because I only just saw the V2/V3 dialog. Will do soon.

    Thanks for checking. If you go again, look for a transformer (big green rectangular looking thing). I don't think anyone has confirmed its in place.

The crime scene tape is back up. Photo shows they are Supercharger II’s. Oh well.
    No green transformer was in sight. See my photos.

    5.14.2019: The green transformer is behind the trees on the main street side.
    I'll try to get a picture of it soon. I don't know from the labels the difference between V2 & V3.
    May have to wait til it's operational.
    Thanks to goldenstop1 for the latest photo's. Looks good. Maybe one day I'll see you there charging.......:)

    5.15.2019: Pictures below of the green transformer box in question.
    Spoke to the install manager and he is waiting today for landscaping to install sod.
    He claims the electrical work is V3 & said Tesla was having some V3 problems.
    The cabinets are V2 models. Guess we will have to wait and see how it charges
    unless I'm lucky enough to catch the Tesla rep tomorrow afternoon when he is onsite
    to finalize & fire it up.

    A 500KVA transformer isn/t big enough for V3, each cabinet in V3 (4 stalls) needs 1000MVA from the transformer. This is a V2 only capable transformer.

    5.16.2019: Spoke with the Tesla reps today. They confirm it is V2.
    V3 will not be on the East coast till the end of 2019 or the first part of 2020.
    They should be finished and fire it up later today. Next they post it and it shows on Nav.
    I will stop by later this evening or tomorrow & see if it's charging.
    Thanks for all your input. It was an interesting experience.

    He said he should be finished late tomorrow afternoon. I'll try to check tomorrow evening or Saturday
    to keep you updated.

    5.17 7pm: Spoke with the Tesla rep today. Parts arrived. Just need to install and then
    update the firmware. I checked after dinner, Tesla rep is gone and it's still not working.
    Don't know what's next, or when they will be back. Have to check another time.

    Are these chargers up and running yet? I plan to visit my in-laws for Memorial Day weekend, who live right down the street from here, and was initially going to drive husband’s ICE since there didn’t seem to be any superchargers in the area. If these are functioning though, we’ll take the Model 3 instead.

    Barnegat is a pretty easy trip from DC, charging-wise. (Traffic is another story!) As @JerseyShore indicated, charging in Marlton should give you plenty of buffer once you arrive in Barnegat, as they're only ~40mi apart. Depending on your plans and schedule, if you're staying with your in-laws and able to plug into a regular power outlet at their place overnight, it should be no problem making it back to Marlton on your way back.

    The car navigation shows 150kW for this site, yet supercharge.info oddly shows 110kW. Please fix this!

    Thanks!
