Charging at the Pearl, MS supercharger on the way home.

Getting 300+ volts and amps, charging full speed ;)

Nice little outlet mall, wife has spent $200 so far. It would have been cheaper to fly I think

Seriously, though, this seems a good location. Much, much better than Mobile which is...unfortunate.

This is exciting to see! While poking around Tesla's Supercharger Map for 2016 I can assume from this picture that the cities to receive a Supercharger station, in addition to Pearl, MS, will be:

  • Meridian, MS
  • Tupelo, MS
  • Grenada, MS
  • Dyersberg, TN or Blytheville, AR, or north Marion, AR (hard to tell)

So that one is a “pull straight in” setup... interesting.

I can't claim to have ever seen one in person before, but of the photos I have seen, most have been “back in” setups. Which is more common?

I'm not an expert, but it seems to me that most of the earlier superchargers were "back-in" and the newer installs tend to be "straight-in"

I've used three (nashville, knoxville, Mobile) that were back-in and one (Pearl) that is straight-in. I think the straight-in design is less likely to have issues with ICEing.
