Superchargers were actually used on commercial trucks first. Hot rodders used to comb junkyards for truck superchargers before they became an aftermarket industry.

I got that info from a young adult novel I read as a preteen. I think it was called "Drag Strip" but I'm not sure. An interesting look at the early days of sanctioned drag racing.

The reverse Tesla adapter is a great idea. As only Nissan and Mitsubishi are in Chademo (maybe Toyota) they could just put a rfid or Bluetooth adapter in it to facilitate charging. It would give good optics that Tesla is open to the EV world, while in practice limiting that openness.

They could also charge us 2x Tesla prices for power, Helping to subsidize the stations. I would pay it for the availability.

Certainly I would like access to all the l3 chargers I can so Tesla superchargers (with an adapter) would be great.. The Leaf has over a hundred mile range now, I have a plus which is over 200 that means road trips are more doable. On a road trip one does not have time to do l2 except at a hotel. As a homeowner though I have a l2 at home and l2 at work and l2 at some other places I go even the airport, that means to use pay l3 chargers in the city would not be often so there is that demand issue, apartment dwellers or renters who have no charging at work may help be a market in addition to the road trippers.
