How busy was Westminster showing in the nav at the time? With 24 stalls there, the turn over should be faster and it's only a like 2 or 3 miles away.

I had 10 range miles left and was needing to go south. I would have attempted to go but the nav was showing 2/24 open. Plus it would of added 15 min there 15 min back in traffic. Thankfully when I plugged in I got 96-97 kW for a whole 3 min then dropped down to ~50kW for a min and then climbed to low 70s.
 
Typical locals shopping at Costco and leaving there cart there by the supercharger. Very lucky a spot left since I’m driving from out of town. Looks like there is a mobile waterless car wash service being offered via third party vendor

Who here has been to the Fountain Valley Supercharger? What was your experience like? I got lucky and didn't have to wait too long to charge, but by the time I was done the line was getting long. I made a short video of my experience.


Just there and it was busy. Also, it was slow at 32 kw. I’m just visiting so not sure if today was normal speed or unusual

In general before expansion this place always was busy even after expansion it’s still busy as located near a Costco and lot of local charging ..u have many options in the area though for supercharging as OC/LA has good density of chargers ..you may be better off going up to Westminster which has 24 urban chargers a little slower but if no wait u will be better off

Thanks for the intel. Thought about heading up there but wasn’t in a rush this morning. Definitely try Westminster next time.
