    Yeah, that's the route I was planning on taking. Factory to SLO, charge, drive to Santa Barbara, stay over night, drive home the next morning....although I really did want to user the SuperChargers.

Anyways, your point is even more true: Supercharging is more powerful and quicker than CHAdeMO...
    125A max anyway. The Leaf starts at about 350V and goes up to 394V. It starts to ramp down the charging current somewhere around 380-390V or so. Max charging power is about 47kW.

    The Model S has a similar battery voltage so around 47kW max there too.

    SuperCharger location needed - Augusta, GA on Interstate 20.

    I would agree. But I noticed that they have Columbia, SC on I-95 and I-20 (and I-77) It is a good 80 miles from I-95. Florence, SC is on I-95 and at the end of I-20. I drive there a couple times a year, almost always with my dad, to see family. If they had a charger near/in Augusta, GA and Columbia, SC you could make the trip (to Florence, or Columbia) in a 60kWh S.

    I want a charger at "Abingdon Manner" I ate there last weekend. It was exceptional. If you are driving on I-95, I highly recommend stopping there. Again this is fresh in my mind.
    I strongly agree with Augusta just off I-20 for a Supercharger location.
    I-20 is a key route to/from ATL for South Carolina.
    Augusta is an appropriate Inter-state stopping point for traveling.

    I travel it several times each year from Charleston. Best alternative when charging on this drive for me is the Heritage RV park near Augusta. That is what I currently use when I travel in the Roadster.

    DrComputer: Late reply, just noticed this. (Is there a way to get notified of mentions BTW?)

    Anyway, there are free 70amp J1772's at Rabobanks at the following locations along 101 which can be found on Recargo:
    - Salinas Rabobank Salinas - Salinas, CA - Recargo
    - Atascadero Rabobank - Atascadero, CA - Recargo
    - Goleta Rabobank - Goleta, CA - Recargo
    - Santa Maria Rabobank - Santa Maria - Santa Maria, CA - Recargo

    There are also a couple non-Rabobank 70amp J1772 in San Luis Obispo:
    - $.75/hr Marsh St. Parking Structure - San Luis Obispo, CA - Recargo
    - $5/hr at LLoyd's office: Marcum, Copp, Barbieri DDS - San Luis Obispo, CA - Recargo

    We used the Salinas and Goleta stations on our Model S drive down with no problems.

    We stayed at the Embassy Suites in San Luis Obispo so charged for the night on the free 30amp J1772 in the parking lot:
    - San Luis Obispo Promenade - San Luis Obispo, CA - Recargo

    Lastly, you're far enough north that you should be set after Goleta. We had to continue on to San Diego and once you get south of Goleta you're a bit out of luck for 70amps until Tesla gets the Superchargers turned back on or puts in J1772 or Model S connector stations at their stores or service centers. But there are plenty of 30amp stations to be found. Maybe Tesla can arrange something for you to use a Roadster > S adapter or something.

    ChadS made a very nice map of charging stations as well. I've suggested he parse out the 70amp J1772s (right now they are mixed with the 70amp Roadster specific stations) but you can get the info from the descriptions: Tesla Highway - Google Maps

    And I've suggested to Recargo that they let us filter on the amps. They have a field for amps, and if we could search on it I suspect us Tesla owners would fill that in for the higher amperage stations pretty quickly.

    October 19th is Supercharging Day

    e-mail from Tesla:

    OCTOBER 19TH IS SUPERCHARGING DAY
    We've been actively working on our game-changing Supercharger network. Since the unveiling last month, the installation and testing process has been in full swing. We now have some very good news to share.

    As of Friday, October 19th, the first six locations will be open and ready to Supercharge your Model S.

    There will be a software update sent to your Model S touchscreen just prior to October 19th. You will receive an email in advance explaining the installation procedure. It is necessary that you install this update prior to Supercharging.

    We've placed Superchargers in convenient locations near fast food, other restaurants, attractions and shopping to make your Model S charge time convenient and enjoyable.

    Interesting that they say an update is needed prior to supercharging. Dadaleus was able to supercharge at the unveiling event last month...

    They've probably done some sort of firmware upgrade to the Superchargers, requiring a matching change in the cars.

    They were waiting for certification, which is the same issue that has delayed the HPWC. The software update is likely a separate issue that has been sitting on the shelf with no need to be implemented prior to certification.
