Hi,

Tesla have opened up a select number of sites for non-Tesla charging and wondered if anyone has used one yet? Charging rates etc. I ask as a regular charging stop-off of mine on the A14 has both Ionity and Tesla chargers, the Ionity is poor charging rate, no better than a conventional 50kWh charger at McDonalds most of the time so hoping Tesla is better.

Thanks in advance.

Curious to know what charging rate you are getting at the Ionity station - bear in mind the car won't charge at the full 125kWh rate immediately, and will start to slow down once the battery is close to full, i.e. there's a curve.
Some folks in the US did some analysis in the links below:
