    The new 8-bay Lexington, KY Supercharger is open for business as of today! FWIW, it does seem to be a bit slower compared to the Dayton, OH charger (236 mph vs. 338 mph with only one car at the charger in both cases).

    Unless the two sessions started with the exact same state of charge, this comparison is meaningless.

    Good point! I went back and checked the data, and my SOC when I started charging at Dayton was about 20 fewer rated miles than when I started charging at Lexington. I didn't think it would make that great a difference in charge rate, but this is all new to me.

    Your charge rate depends greatly on arrival rated miles and battery temp. Higher rated miles = Slower charge. :wink:

    As a non-Tesla owner (not yet anyway), I'm curious how you activate the charging session on the supercharger? I'm guessing the connector is locked in the pedestal and has to be unlocked through some method. Is it through a phone app, the car key fob, an RFID card, etc? I've never heard how you initiate the supercharge session. Thx.

    Just pull into the spot and plug in. You dont need to hit any buttons to release the cable from the charge stand, and you dont need to do anything to start charging once your car is plugged in. It could not be any simpler.
