Kingman AZ seems to be a thorn not just for EA but also Tesla. I've heard the Kingman tesla site is rated the worst in the country.

Kyle from Out Of Spec Motoring just did a new cannonball EV record run using only EA. So things have come a long way.

Hadn't heard that but a quick Google search turned up some complaints at https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... 072/page-5

There's also https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... sa.217191/ with some people adding their nominations.

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Here's another problem with SAE Combo/Combo1:

Look at the current 1st pic at https://www.plugshare.com/location/247356 and the check-in by BarBoltEV on 1/8/21. He says:
While charging today I noticed that three of the four CCS plugs [fixed his typo] have broken clips. I have reported this to Electrify America but I want to warn others of the danger. Do not attempt to unplug if the charger is actively running, serious damage to the vehicle could occur. I’m also not sure who is breaking these plugs like this but I wish people could be more considerate
I actually know him from charging station encounters when he only had a Bolt. He now has a Taycan so he's enjoying his free 3 years of 30 minutes at a time session on Electrify America (since EA is VW of America owned and VW owns Porsche).
