    Athens is the first one we used on our new Model 3. I thought I was a goof for not noticing the stall numbers.

    Stopped by just now. Doesn’t charge yet but the button opens and closes the charge door.

    When I was there a couple days ago, the button was not opening the charge door, so at least we’re making some sort of progress!

    We’re hoping to do the same on our return trip. Would be nice to skip Chattanooga and Brentwood since they are both out of the way for traveling on 24

    Thanks for checking again... Keeping my fingers crossed... Been anxiously awaiting for several months... Would replace the Athens AL charger on my many trips to Huntsville.

    Great news even if it's only 72KW. I will be heading to St. Louis tomorrow. It would be awesome if anyone gets a chance to check-in today to confirm it is working. I will certainly report it tomorrow too.

    Just called Tesla Roadside and they said it was online 2 days ago. She is not sure why it shows as 72KW. This is a much better stop than Chattanooga and Brentwood.

    It's been a loooooonnnngggg wait... But, HALLELUJAH... Headed to Huntsville/Auburn on Thursday... Don't need to charge, and its not the most direct route, but might go by and stop anyway... Highly likely will stop next Tuesday (return trip), instead of Athens AL, when I WILL need a charge. Let ya'll know how it goes.

    Just checked the 'official' Tesla supercharger map. It does not yet show the site as "active"... Here are the details specified: "10 Superchargers, available 24/7, up to 72kW". So, apparently 72 KW it is... Disappointing.

    I am charging here now. It’s actually a 120kw charger. My model S 75 can get its peak rate of 96kw.

    We just passed through in the late hours of Sunday morning but the NAV did not show this as open. Then traffic started backing up so nav sent us off-freeway towards Chattanooga before we even got to Manchester. Now I am thinking that we could have been the first to use this one. Oh, well, next year.

    That’s how it was for the “ Carmel IN “ Sc it was active before it was on the map. It was almost as exciting as getting that “Tesla software update available” alert on the

    from JimT: Charged for first time at the Manchester site around noon on Thursday (1B). All went well. Started @ 116 KW with battery 60% full. Added 129 miles in 42 minutes to nearly fill battery (319 miles) for trip to Auburn AL via Huntsville. Plan to fill battery again on return trip Tuesday, being fairly close to empty. (Had 39 miles left upon arrival in Auburn.) Will let ya' know how that goes...

    Charging here now. Great to skip Chattanooga and Brentwood TN. Maxed at 93KW (90D) so I also concur it’s a “full speed” one.
