Mt. Shasta Time Test # 6

In the elusive quest to achieve 170 miles in 30 minutes, I time tested the superchargers again recently in Mt. Shasta, California.

This supercharger is located in the small town of Mt. Shasta next to a Best Western motel.  The rates at that motel are reasonable but not particularly inexpensive if all you want to do is sleep and get on your way.  The motel also has a restaurant and they serve food all day in the bar area.  The area also offers a number of fast food and chain dining options within walking distance:  Taco Bell / KFC, Burger King, Black Bear Diner and Round Table Pizza.  More interesting local options are a longer walk away along Mt. Shasta Boulevard, which is the main street through downtown.

When I arrived on a Saturday night the temperature was only 46 degrees Fahrenheit (8 degrees Celsius).  I had 1 rated range mile left in my battery. Another car was charging but I selected an unused charger pair.  The charging station 2B was at a full charging rate of 120kW and above for seven minutes.  My resulting rated range miles per minute was 153 miles in 30 minutes.  The resulting charge curve is quite linear.

I had earlier achieved 163 miles in 30 minutes in Gilroy when the weather was considerably more pleasant.

154 miles in 30 minutes in 46 degree weather.

154 miles in 30 minutes in 46 degree weather.
