North Carolina-Tesla-September 12


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-September 12

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.

If you like cars then you probably notice Tesla’s when they come down the road.

As your probably know Tesla vehicles are battery charged.

Tesla vehicles use an onboard charger to convert alternating current (AC) from a wall charger to direct current (DC) that’s stored in the battery. If you charge at home it can take from 4-5 hours to get a full charge but there are superchargers. In fact my hometown Lumberton, NC has a location off I-95 at Exit 22 with four superchargers.

Lumberton has four supercharger stations for Tesla electric cars in the parking lot of Texas Steakhouse and Saloon, off Interstate 95. The stations can fully charge the cars at a rapid rate.

Superchargers consist of multiple chargers working in parallel to deliver up to 120 kW of power directly to the battery. As the battery nears to a full charge, the vehicle’s onboard computer gradually reduces the current to the optimum level for topping off cells.

For those lucky enough or curious the link below shows you where superchargers are located. There are 7 in the State of North Carolina.
