Love driving it, fear long trips

Greeting! Sold my gen2 Volt and Love week 1 of my I-pace S model. 1st challenge is knowing quick charging options when near end of range away from home area. Navigating chargepoint station map and user notes for protocol; appears sketchy due to waiting for daily availability or even station repair.

cool, congrats!

chargepoint and evgo seem to be the most widespread ones at this point
electrify america is making a real push
also check plugshare

and the thread here about tesla destination chargers / adapter for plugging into that (7kW charging only, beware)

Greetings!

I find that rented or borrowed gasoline vehicles are very good for long trips. They can be driven hundreds or thousands of miles, without fear, and with great convenience.

I have found PlugShare to have the best info in regards to charging stations

And how would we know and identify a 7kW Tesla destination charger?

As I found out yesterday DO NOT trust the Jaguar NAV system. Nor the EVgo either. IIRC, Chargepoint is pretty good. Plugshare is the best.

The Jaguar 'Charging' NAV is dangerously unpredictable. When I'm 120 miles from home with 2 Combo chargers in my area, it only listed my Home charger and nothing else. This is not what is always does. Sometimes it works.

charging education

Thank you all for welcoming me with your comments & suggestions! Just ordered j1772 extension cable by Jlong which I found via helpful website
https://greentransportation.info/ev-...ion-cords.html

Next will be visiting Livermore, CA electrifyAmerica site which is on the way to/from Sierras from SF area. It is at a premium outlet mall which I have managed to avoid visiting for years even though I grew up in that town. Guess will be browsing for a hour as car charges. Will report experience back here...

I notice that we spend the most amount of time talking about the type of driving that I (and most people) almost never actually do - going somewhere more than 100 miles from home.
