    A TOCA member posted on Facebook an image of the 6 stall Supercharger at Majura Park, not yet open, but it doesn't look too far away.

    This is a big deal to us, we've been waiting quite a while. Seems to be it's own new carpark and not part of Macdonalds as it appears in the pic, just backs onto the drive through. There is also a HPWC near this location. This complex is right next to Canberra Airport for anyone who doesn't know.

    Great news. I will get a lot of use out of this.
    I often have to do a short job in Canberra (live in Sydney).
    It’s very easy to undercharge at Goulburn and get caught short when not staying in Canberra.

    Plugged in and charging on it now, and getting the obligatory snack from McDonald’s with the little guy. As a local I don’t imagine I’ll use it often, but it’s nice that it’s here. Imagine Syndey people will get more use out of it.

    Was down from Sydney on a trip, visited today. No-one else there. There is a Bunnings nearby so I wandered the aisles there for a bit and bought stuff I didn't need.

    Perfect. That's what Bunnings is for. I now own one of everything that they sell.

    Hiya!

    I was interested in renting preferrably a model x, if not then an S in Canberra for a yr10 formal night. I’d be the driver (40+)

    I’ve seen two x’s on evee in Sydney. The extra kms charge bumps it up a fair bit.

    Are their any x owners in cbr anyone knows who might do a nights rental? (I don’t even have to drive in a pinch) all about the car :)

    Just stopped to charge at Canberra supercharger...hopeless. I was the only car charging and all I could achieve was 55kW charge rate. I even changed stalls thinking that one was faulty...nope same deal. Come on Tesla, you can do better than that

    If you were low on electrons, it appears to be slow, but if you were just topping up from over half it is probably about right.

    I was at 66% and took it to 85%, but I've never had a SC charge at such a low rate when at 66%. Got to the Goulburn supercharger at around 65% later today and it was charging at 110kW

    I've never got 110kw even at 1%. I would love to have seen a photo of 110kw at 66%

    I typically get 110-120 at the St Leonards SC when my charge is from 40-65 (when no one is sharing a stall)

    Had you been driving long? Sometimes if the battery is cold the charging is slower.
    But at 65% it's normal to be about 80kW or less.

    At least you didn't create a FUDalistic thread title. Knowledge is power. Given you're a relatively new TMC member I'm going to assume you'll learn something from this thread. There are so many variables that effect charging rate that blaming Tesla and the Supercharger would be the easiest route. Watch someone like "Tesla Bjorn" on Youtube and you might acquire some more knowledge.
