    Sorry if this is in the wrong location - on mobile.. I was super excited to find a new supercharger (cc @BlueShift ). There are 12 urban superchargers located in the garage of the baychester mall.

    There are two garages - the chargers being in the one that connects to Macy’s.

    The stalls are located on the second floor (level 2 red). The equipment is located on level 1. I’ll add pictures once on a laptop.

    Needless to say, these chargers are not yet completed.

    @Doug_G Please move this thread to the Mid-Atlantic subforum and edit the title to be consistent with the other supercharger threads in that section (e.g. Supercharger - Baychester, NY) . Thanks.

    In the photos we can see the six supercharger cabinets and the autotransformers, but then there is one wide white box. What is that? It doesn't look like a typical utility transformer.

    What is that!?!
    EDIT: Never mind. Been using the super charger network since 2013, and still learning new things!

    "The eight bay setup takes a 12kV, 750kVA feed from the utility, steps it down to 480V three phase on site, pushes that into 2000A switchgear which feeds four (one for each pair of bays) SuperCharger units at 480V/200A. Each unit contains 12 [Model S] 10kW rectifiers for 120kW"

    Yes, I paid $3. I believe it is $3 all day. I did not look into validation since I did not end up purchasing anything.

    I suppose it must be, but it doesn't normally come in a box shaped like that.
