    Charged up there this past weekend, it’s great to finally have a SC near center city but the garage is not very nice and the $5 for the first hour of parking wasn’t clear to me before going there. Was just excited to see it pop up on the nav. But the Wholefoods nearby is nice and it’s a short walk to the museums. Entrance on 20th st., there’s a small Tesla logo on the sign above the parking entrance. Don’t try to go in the entrance from the Target parking lot, even though that entrance says Tesla Supercharger above it.

    I should add that I was pretty psyched to see the urban supercharger in person though.

    I believe this should be directed at Felickz who brought up the Philadelphia urban chargers. I merely added relevant info.

    Figured that mentioning that would go south, oddly enough my dentist just told me that it looks like there is a row of chargers going in the Lord and Taylor lot behind the buchmans. I will verify in the AM!!!!!

    Keep us posted. From Twitter
    "I saw the construction site and went over to talk to a guy working there last weekend. He told me all 6 chargers are generic chargers and not @tesla specific. He could notice that I was in a #model3 without me mentioning it so he might be knowledgeable. Just what I was told"

    As indicated on Twitter, these are not superchargers. Very odd placement as 6 with dual chargers but placed as if one parking spot per unit. 150KW CCS by electrify America...

    Are they duals or combo CCS/Chademo?

    All the Electrify America chargers are like that - they have two cables, either 2 CCS or 1 CCS & 1 CHAdeMO, but only can charge one vehicle at a time per charger.

    Was in the neighborhood today so stopped by. Not up yet, but looks close. Fence from previous picture above is gone. This is basically at the intersection of Rt 202 and Gulph.

    Do these require a membership or are they usable by anyone? 3 years I've had my CHAdeMO adapter and never used it so I am clueless about non-Tesla chargers.

    It sounds like they should be available to anyone with a credit card:

    $1.00 session fee. $0.30/ min to charge. Move within ten minutes afterward to avoid the $0.40/min idling fee. MC and Visa accepted

    PlugShare - Find Electric Vehicle Charging Locations Near You

    Note that there is only going to be a single CHAdeMo capable charger.

    Can we (Teslas) use the CCS chargers?

    No, not until Tesla comes out with an adapter.

    There is one unit on the far right with a chademo connector. If you have an s or x and have $600 to burn Model S/X CHAdeMO Adapter

    I got mine dirt cheap for only $450 before I even had my X. Guess it was a great buy back then but I've never used it. Just carry it around in my frunk just in case. If I ever have to go down to KoP I'll give it a try.

    If you ever go to Canada, off the Supercharger network, it will come in very handy.
