I swung by the Folsom supercharger on my way back from San Jose today. It's in the corner of a mall parking lot, and there was certainly no waiting today:
Normally I can do SJ<->Reno in about 4-4.25 hours, depending on speed and traffic. Detouring off I-80 through Folsom adds about 10 miles. Figure 30-45 minutes to top off and 15 minutes driving through Folsom, for a total of about an hour added to the trip.
Certainly doable. Would have been nice if there was a canopy over the chargers, though, even without solar cells. I assume I could stay in the car while it charges if I didn't want to wander the mall. Wonder how much leaving the A/C on would slow charging? Has anyone done this?
