We are starting to see our SuperChargers in Florida which has me curious about their actual utility.
Can owners that (routinely) use the SC network comment on actual charge rates? Does the state of charge when you arrive affect the charge rate much? Have you seen any changes associated with "modified taper" charging?
I ask because "150 miles in 30 minutes" would seem to indicate a 300 miles of range per hour of charging and yet the best screen shots I have seen are just over 200. (could be linked to screen shots showing rated instead of ideal)
There was a post on TMC using Ideal miles. If possible, please post your experiences in Rated miles. If not, please note the miles as being Ideal.
I removed the "Hype" in the title as Tesla is using Ideal miles when they say 150/30.
