    This is not a surprise. There are two distinct locations in Brickell City Centre, on on the East SW 7th St, one on the West, under Saks, SW 8th St. The latter was activated later for unknown reasons. Anyway it is very good news that they are both now open.

    Ahh I see. I knew there was a second batch of chargers to be activated at 7th St, I thought they were really close - close enough to be the same site! I figured this one was far enough away that it wasn't part of the 7th St one. Sorry, I guess that's what happens when I'm an armchair supercharger stalker and not a local!

    Were it not for you, Chuq, I would not know about Tasmanian charging options nor many others around the world. This is one of those very rare local idiosyncrasies. Luckily we’ll have more of these coming.:D

    And it’s probably a good idea to have their status reported separately (in case one set of chargers fills up and you don’t waste time looking to see if the other set of chargers is full!).

    Is it a separate garage? Is either one of them trully free / easy to get parking ticket stammped to get it for free?
    I remember I was charged $1 when had to charge around 1AM at night, makes no sence to me, same as charging it overnight at home.

    Good, charging overnight at home is what you should be doing.

    It's all one underground parking garage that extends for three city blocks. And it's not free - $3 for the first 2 hours, I believe. But you can get 50% off on parking at a desk on the 2nd level (just don't wait too late - that desk seems to close around 9:00 pm).

    That is not an option for everybody and people need to quit acting like it is.

    The wording in the comment I was responding to suggested that it was an option for him.
