    In case anyone is browsing this thread... Fast Park and Relax at RDU says they have 120vAC plugs available for EVs.
    120 volts will keep vampires at bay at least.

    Deep thread dredge. I've used the 120v outlets on a couple of occasions without any kind of issues. I'm heading down today for another trip and with the Burlington Supercharger the airport charging isn't so critical for me anymore. I thought I would call to actually confirm that it's OK to use the outlets and I was given an unhesitant "no problem".

    More than keep the vampires at bay, you can get 75 rated miles per day from a 120 Volt outlet; a few day trip and you can be topped up!

    Also, the Raleigh service center is only a few miles from the airport. They have an HPWC outside in the rear of the building. It's powered 24/7, but sometimes they may be charging a car for delivery overnight, so if you're going off-hours you might want to call during business hours & ask them if they can keep it open for you.

    The Tesla Service Center is extremely close to Fast Park 'N Relax at RDU.... blocks up the service road (Westgate) which is about 1.3 miles to the SC, and also maybe 1 mile to the new sales center.

    I have used Fast Park 'N Relax's EV charging. While 120Vac, they are available and functioning.

    So you consider the Fast Park a safe place to leave a fine automobile (not suggesting otherwise, just curious)?

    Perhaps safer than the Lowe's parking lot in Chapel Hill.... what are those 10' wide spaces?
