Please post any Supercharger updates here on routes headed into Reno for the Connect and Gigafactory Party (and Picnic Creek, potentially). May be helpful for those deciding where to charge while en route.
Driving up from Los Angeles, I charged at the Mojave SC, then was going to skip the Inyo Kern SC to charge at Lone Pine SC. But I noticed a different symbol for the Lone Pine SC on the nav screen.
Clicking on it produced a warning message to the effect that charging is severely limited there. Called SC hotline and was told that yes power irregularities is causing slow charging. Probably because of the hot weather - encountered up to 119F! And those charger connectors are hot hot hot!\
So charged at Inyo Kern, then dropped by Lone Pine - and yes charging was limited to 60 kW compared to Inyo Kern's 100+ kW. Comparing to prior trip's charging at Manteca SC of 115 kW the charging chart was much better behaved.
Yeah, the truckee sc hasn't been very fast, when i'm not paired. 200mph on a 30% full battery rather than the near 300mph I'd expect., Brockway is faster. Perhaps this is intentional to wean us away from truckee. There's more to do at truckee, though.
Sounds like we just might've just missed you. We were the second Tesla to arrive around 3 pm (or maybe a little earlier). Within 20 minutes, all of the chargers filled up. We stopped charging early when a line started to form.
I was at Brockway (Truckee #2) Saturday around 10. It was full and when I left there were 2 cars waiting. Not everyone there was going home from the Gigafactory event. A guy in an X with some small children was on his way to Chicago!
