    Wow. You don't live around here. I find the number of chargers increases slightly if you're willing to deviate even 100 miles from your route...

    Until Superchargers are built-out, for trip-routing the best I've found is the KOA website. Yep. Not glamorous perhaps but lots more chargers, most appear to be 50 amp. I'm considering picking up my S in Fremont and driving it to Texas. With most of the charging station websites there are big gaps. If I plan to stop at KOAs and maybe work in a few Nissan dealers or other chargers I think I can make it work with hops of less than 200 miles on my 60KWh battery. Since there are few chargers over 50 amps, and the future will be Superchargers, I'm not doing twin-chargers. I AM waiting on the 2013 Red though

    For people who have used KOA or other campsites, what kind of deals are you getting? Do you have to pay the overnight fee for a campsite ($20-30) just to charge or are people willing to rent you a site on an hourly basis?

    (WA and OR are not CA, right?)

    I'm sure it all depends on the source of data. A lot of Chad's source is first-hand reports... It's going to take some first-hand reports to fill in this data for your region.

    I haven't yet found a source that lists 70A J1772 chargers. PlugShare is good to locate 14-50 sources and J1772 Level 2s... but precious few have 70 or 80A capability which the spec allows. Chad's map is the best we have so far.

    Ok, KOA added to favorites too. Though it might be flash based & not work, but seems to work just fine.

    PlugShare - EV Charging Station Map - Find the nearest location to charge your electric car!

    also, the plugshare app on ios and android is very helpful.

    Other sites/apps like recargo and blink network, but plugshare is superior.

    It gets more and more obvious where this internetconnection & 17" is going to be used the most for!
