We installed a L2 at our house because we couldn't charge enough if we went from here to Denver 3 days in a row. We wouldn't get the battery back to 100% at night (e.g. 7pm to 7am) after a full day of use. ... Having the L2 at home is great, but some folks certainly don't need it.

Same, we've done it, but it's a stretch, and I certainly didn't go 80 MPH. We've sat at the chargers at DIA for a while to charge back up, then came home. Lately, all the chargers (east and west) have been 100% full, so we've taken to charging up at the L3 at the Walmart just south of DIA. Only a few minutes out of the way, and there is a home depot and some food options there too,

Same, used less power than I'd expected. Great for zipping up for a day of skiing!
