    Does anyone have experience with location charging from Victoria to Tofino? There seems to be a variety of J1772 installs in Port Alberini and Nanaimo but the comments on Plug Share are depressing. I have only ever had to use superchargers or home charging so I have no experience using these other chargers. There is one ChaDemo in Nanaimo but I'm not sure it is worth spending $450 for the adapter.

    There is a Supercharger under construction just North of Nanaimo, near where the old and new Island Highways come back together. We stopped by there on the way to Tofino today, and were delighted to find that the station is almost finished. I talked to one of the workmen, and they indicated the work should be done by mid-July. The transformer is in place, and only final wiring, testing, and landscaping remain to be completed. The location is correctly indicated on Supercharge.info.

    It would be great if this site were to open next week. I hope someone will post as soon as they see it working. I think my trip will be OK without it, but.....it would be very reassuring to have it available before board the ferry to Vancouver.

    I used the CHadeMO in Nanaimo a couple of weeks ago. It had an out of service sign on it. IMG_1149.JPG Tried it anyhow and it worked just fine. Not sure what the issue was.

    Supercharge.info lists the Nanaimo site as live now.
