Haha autocorrect, meant will they move your car when done charging
<snip> No additional charge to 'charge', however first hour of parking costs ~$37, with each additional hour costing ~$5 <snip>
I finally had a chance to check out the E 47th street SCer tonight.
I found a $13 parking coupon between 5 pm and 2 am which is more time than I need, but a pretty decent parking rate.
I had trouble connecting to my car through the app but was given notifications that it was in fact plugged in a few minutes after I dropped it off which made me happy.
my stats -- according to TeslaFi are:
Plugged in at 5:34 PM with 31 miles of Rated Range and unplugged 7:24 with 238 rated miles.
Max Volts and Amps were 360 V x 186.11 A or 66.9996 kW (67 kW according to TeslaFi near the very beginning of the charging session)
Average Volts and Amps were 358 V x 139.44 Amps or 49.91952 kW
unfortunately 30 minutes in to my charging session -- where I was not able to connect to the Tesla App, but I was able to connect to TeslaFi -- and got this strange live-info from TeslaFi that the charge rate had dropped to 35 kW and that 90% won't e reached until 8:04 PM.
then around 6:50 pm I got a notification from the Tesla app that my car was at 80% and I may be charged Idle fees if my car sat at the SCer too long. Shhht...
what to do...?
I figured I would trust the TeslaFi info that said I would reach my 90% at 8:04 pm and just head back when I was ready. I am heading up to Sleepy Hollow tomorrow afternoon and TarryTown SC is near there so 90% wasn't super important here... I can just charge up tomorrow...
I unplugged at 7:25 PM with 238 RM so I did hut that 90% after all and the SC worked flawlessly without any slowing down like TeslaFi had said... I didn't hit 74 kW which is my best at the urban SCers, but 67 kW is pretty good.
I have a bad habit of not using the Tesla Nav b/c I prefer Waze so I didn't see how many SCers at this location were in use b4 I started my drive (stupid me) -- but I checked after I left and 2 of the 4 stalls were occupied AFTER I had left...
my heart totally sank. with me included there were probably 3/4 SC stalls occupied and I will incur some Idle Fees...
I figure I was Idling for roughly 25 minutes... sucks... can someone help me figure out what I might get charged in Idling fees please?
I go in for service in mid Jan.. and the jury will pronounce its verdict.
TO BE CONTINUED..
Not all urban chargers incur idle fees. So far I’ve found self service ones to contain idle fees. Valet ones have not. I had one plugged in at max for over an hour without any fees (not by choice) but
