Worst Tesla Supercharger In America – 1st Tesla Road Trip And We Encounter This Tesla Supercharger

Worst Tesla Supercharger In America – 1st Tesla Road Trip And We Encounter This Tesla Supercharger


so I’m at this beautiful supercharger in
Arlington Virginia and two straight days I try to charge my car here and it
wouldn’t work let me just let you guys see what it looks like it’s on the fifth
floor of a parking garage now what’s frustrating about this DC
area everywhere you go you typically gotta
pay to get in the parking structure but my issue with this particular charger is
that I’ve moved my car four different places that won’t charge and I came back
a second day and it still wouldn’t charge so I wound up going back to the
harbor charge super charger and it went fine so I’m here to record it this time
just in case there’s something faulty about my car
or possibly anybody else who has a model three standard so let’s get out plug it
up and see what happens other than that one minor hiccup the road trip was very
very good very smooth and we wanted to do a road trip because in my County I
have a whole lot of people who are backwards thinking I guess the nicest
way to put it is that they’re old-school and they enjoy trying to pick on me
because they drive gas cars and I have a Tesla they like throwing jokes like well
at least we can make it to the beach and not have to worry about charging or I
heard this one the other day well what are you gonna do if there’s ever a MP
strike you’re not gonna be able to drive you guys can get the picture of what
type of folks I’m dealing with in this county and so having said that we didn’t
have a lot of range anxiety and I decided to take my wife on a road trip
to see what the experience is like this is a story and it starts right now what’s up people out there in YouTube I
am Lamont Tyson you have reached a life games channel if you’re finding me for
the first time please subscribe and turn on the notifications so when I Drive
videos you all get them I do mainly movie and TV show reviews I do a little
tattoo but that’s kind of more the old-school part of my channel and I am
now doing Tesla because I own one and this is such fun Ted so our road trip
starts from from basically Burlington North Carolina goes to Durham and our
destination is Washington DC and to get to DC we had to make two stops and the
first stop was this little little town sketchy place in South Heritage enya we
had to stop there in an effort to get to DC and ladies and gentlemen you’re gonna
be behind this little restaurant called Cahill and it’s probably not the kind of
place you want to be at at night so if you can avoid this one a longer road
trip try to avoid it because man this place looks sketchy as hell and at
nighttime if it’s dark you might not want to be back up in there by itself
however the charging station does its job we had no issues it just seems a
little weird in that location and from there we basically was able to get to
Washington DC I had a lot of fun while I was up there I met a whole lot of good
people at various super charging stations and when we got in DC the super
charged that I went to was at the Harbor and it was a beautiful super charging
station and the very next day I had to get up and drive my wife into town to DC
for her conference and that’s where things start to get a little bad you
people in DC man your traffic is off the chain unreal that would be the thing
that would prevent me from one to live in a city like that however with my car
being able to self Drive it took a little bit of that pain away
the only issue there are a few lines that you deal with
that the car doesn’t recognize and you just got to be prepared to take over but
overall that was good now the issue that we have that I had on this road trip was
this one charging station in Arlington Va my car would not charge there and the
other issue is that pretty much anywhere around that area you’re gonna have to
pay to go in there so here I am getting ready to go into the Arlington Virginia
supercharger and they have like these little smaller super charging stations
for the inner city and I had to pay to go in there and I’m pulling in there and
once I get in there this happens so I’m at this beautiful supercharger in
Arlington Virginia and two straight days I try to charge my car here and it
wouldn’t work let me let you guys see what it looks like it’s on the fifth
floor of a parking garage now what’s frustrating about this DC
area everywhere you go you typically gotta pay to get in the parking
structure but my issue with this particular charger is that I’ve moved my
car four different places it won’t charge and I came back a second day and
it’s still with charts so I wound up going back to the harbor charged
supercharger and it went fine so I’m here to record it this time just in case
there’s something faulty about my car or possibly anybody else who has a Model
3 standard so let’s get out plug it up and see what happens and so I’m walking
around the car you know just showing you guys what it looks like here and I keep
getting these messages in my car saying that the equipment is faulty it won’t
work and so I’m beginning to panic because I’m thinking something is wrong
with my car and so I do move over to four or five different stations and then
I wind up going back to the National Harbor supercharger and I didn’t have
any problems and so the only hiccup I had was that charging station I still to
this day having figured out what was the issue until I went and read the reviews
about the super charging station and take a look at what people were saying
about this particular station and I met some brothers over at the
harbor who told me that a lot of people had complained about that super charging
station as well and so other than that the trip was fine and the other super
charging station that we went to was in Springfield Virginia and that has got to
be the most packed super charging station in all of that area every day I
went there you had a line of cars and then on my last day going down I met
this really really cool cat right here who is all in the Tesla and before Tesla
he could care less about cars he had a bike and now that he’s got Tesla he’s so
geeked about the evie movement he’s thinking about getting the river into me
and him kind of wrapped it up what we think about river Ian’s truck how it
will compare the Tesla struck and I really really enjoyed meeting him and
all the other people that I met I’m shopping you guys out everybody I met on
my DC trip if you watch this video leave me a comment so I know that I met you
guys it was a fun trip from there we basically loaded up got ready to come
back home and on the way back home we only had two stops mm-hmm and one of the
stops was right here at this gas station and while we’re charging look at what my
wife is doing to me this is what I have to deal with when we
own the supercharging trip fellas if you got a Tesla do your wife do this we on our way back to NC from DC and we
doing a little charging and I can’t even enjoy this Tesla because more road trips
to come and if you got kids let me know how they enjoy some of these features
like the karaoke I know well I was saying as an addendum to the grown women
that try to take over let me know how your kids be behaving in the Tesla too so we charged up there and the last stop
was that sketchy place in South Hill Virginia behind Cahill again and ladies
and gentlemen from there we were back home overall my experience from my first
road trip with Tesla it was good for me it added maybe about 45 minutes to my
overall trip now mind you I have the standard Plus Tesla but I didn’t it
didn’t bother me now my wife was a little irritated that if you’re going to
be having to do a four-hour drive you got to add 45 minutes to an hour to it
but obviously as you can see she had no problems when we was at the super
charging station because she took the car over but I want you guys to leave me
comments on your Tesla road trips if you’ve done one how was your experience
what did you think and how well did you enjoy it the only thing I had to say was
that one super charging station in Virginia to me that was the worst
charging station I’ve ever been to that would be my only complaint but because
there were so many other charging stations around it really didn’t even
bother me I enjoyed it and I can’t wait for my next trip that’s gonna do it for
this video don’t forget to like my video please comment subscribe go yourself a
life game leave me your comments about your supercharged and Tesla
trips and give me some insight as a new Tesla drive I’m so excited I love this
movement and I would love to see everybody else go out there and get
themselves a Tesla and if you decide to get one use the link for me in my video
description and until that net sex is hell video I’ll see you

    Hey Lamont & your lovely 🌹wife. I like Tesla. My sister bought one says that it only goes 2 hours then needs charging. Is that correct? I believe you all did 4 hours before charging. She was talking to me about buying a hybrid instead, but her model is standard I believe it costs her $40K, said she should have got a bigger battery. 🔋

    I've been a Model S owner in the DMV since 2013. Quite the adventure. Vegas and Orlando are my farthest trips. 110k miles and my car runs like new.

    Go ahead and just rent when traveling far bruh. I know it's life gains but no need to gain and hour or 2 on a road trip. Keep up the good videos appreciate you.
