    Buying an EV is one thing, being able to drive it beyond city limits another...

    It is listed as 24/7, but you will need to go through a guarded gate. Just tell them that you are a Tesla owner that needs to charge. There is lots of signage. Follow the recargo map.

    You don't have to tell them, they see a Model S and point the way...

    Thanks for posting that video. I recognize the Hawthorn location. When I went there, I didn't realize there was a button to open the cover! I just pushed it open.

    Now that it has been over three weeks since the quote about "in the coming weeks" was made, has there been any recent news on when / where the Superchargers on the DC-BOS route would be available?

    It seems odd to me that there aren't Superchargers at all Tesla stores that have parking areas, not mall showrooms, but sales and service centers. Considering what it costs to put a center together, I wouldn't think the marginal cost of a Supercharger would be that big and it would significantly increase their availability.

    In California it might be redundant, but for the rest of the country Superchargers are pretty thin on the ground and likely to remain that way for many years.

    While superchargers are relatively inexpensive to operate, I think they don't want them to become people's regular charging location. By placing them only in areas outside major metropolitan areas, they focus their use on travelers, and not locals. It would suck for travelers if they attempted to charge at a supercharger and had to wait for the local to finish supercharging when the local had a perfectly valid charging option at home. In the same vein, travelers are more likely to only charge for 20-30 minutes (enough to get to the next supercharger or their final destination) rather than sitting there the full hour to get to 100%.

    The Hawthorne SC is an exception to the rule because it's at Space-X HQ, and is in a largely industrial area.
