    Welcome to the game. Can you clarify which supercharger Mission Valley, Sorento Valley, and Riverpark are?

    Mission Valley - San Diego Friars Rd?
    Sorrento Valley - San Diego?

    Riverpark is Oxnard, right?

    Also, are those dates Month/Year? or Month/Day/2019?

    Thanks for the advice! I was thinking about doing a 1-day blitz and see how many superchargers I can visit. NJ,NY,CT area would be easy pickings! I don't know if anyone has a 24 hour record for that.

    There's some serious competition for the 24 hour record - I believe @IT Geek has 35 in a day, @Darren S has 25 or 26.

    On my car when I pull up to a SC on low states of charge, maybe <15% or so, the initial surge of the SC is quite suppressed.. I don't see peak SC charge rate until SOC is about 20%. There must be a reason for not fire-hosing nearly empty batteries (health, heat, explosions).

    Keep in mind that regen can produce 60kW (on my RWD car) which is like a "half supercharger" while in motion. Far greater than any L2 charger the car can drink (max 19kW L2).

    So if the SC is limiting on low SOC, so should the car. The car just does it more drastically ... probably because variable limiting the regen would be unsafe. You're not used to the car suddenly becoming more slippery over time on the same drive, but that's what it would have to do. Safer just to shut it off completely at some low point of SOC.

    My guess is that low point is 10%. And it probably has to do with pack temps so maybe +/- from that.

    I have a feeling that's a record which isn't going to last very long....

    That didn't stop @Darren S from driving all the way across the state on his way back from from Custer, SD in May this year.

    Personally, I'll wait for the SC's to show up...unless it gets to be my last state left. Been to 40 now with the car.

    Wow! Is that record for 35 new, never visited superchargers in 24 hours? That would take some serious planning and timing it right! You probably only have 1 shot on the East coast (or 2 if you try it in California).

    I am shocked! Shocked! Name one person who would do this sort of dastardly deed just to see his name in lights! I was under the impression that the leaders were itinerant delivery people for Amazon Prime.

    Now that your data is in the spreadsheet, you can make a copy of your column along with the Supercharger names and plan your trip.

    You have 109 open Superchargers which you haven't visited in these 7 states :

    PA 12
    CT 14
    NJ 17
    NY 37
    MD 11
    MA 17
    RI 1

    During the 38 months and 44,817 miles we owned our S90D, we supercharged 143 times, 37% of total charging. Our travel and supercharging was far above average for Tesla owners but small time by the standards of this thread. And during all that time we only left California twice, both of those just over the Nevada border. So a modest 31 different superchargers (x at each if more than once)

    Excellent! Thanks for the info! Are there any bonus points for visiting the coolest charger (not supercharger) at The Inside Scope in Coopersburg, PA? Although I assume that everyone in the top 50 has been there too.

    Just to be clear, that's not actually a Supercharger, although it is cool.

    And we have two new sites in Stamford CT open in this region (four more up the I-95 in Fairfield, CT and Madison CT) increasing the odds that some dedicated soul could surpass this record in the future.

    Depending on whether we want to count a "day" as a 24 hour period or from midnight to midnight will make a difference in whether the record is 32 or 35. Personally I was thinking it was midnight to midnight, which is why I only reported 32 in one day when I posted these (see page #284 in this thread), and did not count the three listed above until the next day. But if a "day" is any 24 hour period then it might be more. I'll have to check the timestamps on the pictures I took. :)

    Interesting. I have gone done really steep hills in my 3 (8%) and, surprisingly, not had to brake at all. That was at about maybe 10 mph on a one-lane back road. just pure regen controlled the speed and kept it at about 10 mph. so I am really puzzled? Maybe the difference in car weight is a factor too?I can't fathom why regen would stopworking at low charge.

    I’m going with most in a 24 hour period.
