    The superchargers appeared on my map last night. What’s interesting is they are rated at 150kw. Most (all?) others I’ve been to are 72kw.

    The other ones you've been to are urban superchargers. These are traditional superchargers. You need to get out more!

    Woohoo. Something closer to the Berkeley/Albany/EC Hills than going all the way down to Alameda!

    Wonder who is paying for the electricity for those? Don't see any J1772s, perhaps you mean TWCs?

    Yes, it looks like a Tesla Wall Connector which does not have a J1772 plug, but maybe Tesla modified that one.

    I assume Tesla would pay for the electricity provided in that stall.

    Sad to see that the charging cable was just tossed on the ground in a heap by whoever used it last.

    Stopped by today. Very convenient for us Marinites on the way home from the East Bay.
    IMG_2625.jpg I had not seen this sign before. Makes sense that the landlord is obligated to have so many general parking places. Usually they make it a set time allowed for ICE parking, i.e. 30 minutes, etc.

    I noticed that only the two central stalls have a posted sign and painted floor "EV Parking only While Charging"

    There is also a "Disabled Van Accessible" sign. I wonder if this sign is just a standard ADA sign or if Tesla plan to make a Model X ADA version?

    Screw that noise, stay at the Hotel Mac in Pt. Richmond. (No connection, just like the place)

    Hit up the SuC in the morning on your way to the next destination. We don't want you Supercharging from your hotel room. Get in the tub just as your 5-minute warning comes on. Not good.
