Our family did our second Vancouver BC to Palm Desert in August. This is the second time we have done this trip, the first being in 2015. For the most part we didn't have any issue finding open chargers. There are certainly more options than in 2015. The biggest difference we noticed this time was time it took to charge at Superchargers. In 2015 we were stopping on average 35 - 45 minutes. This time around we were stopping 45 min to over 1 hour. This added a lot of time to our trip.
The question I have is there anything I can do differently to reduce the time it takes to charge? Or is this a function or more people at chargers, wear and tear on chargers and my battery?
We are looking to do this again next year and are debating on whether we take our Model S.
Any advice is appreciated.
