Seem like quite a few of the plugshare ones around... I noticed one in the main street of Daylesford over the weekend.

Canberra has chargers that can charge Teslas and they are provided for free by the shopping centres.

The Plugshare ap shows all chargers, the different icons show the type,
some are even private home chargers that the owners are willing to share for others to use.

Many chargers are free including Tesla destination chargers . The problem is you need to end up carrying a crate full of adaptors, which are not cheap and quite bulky.

I can plug my LandRover into J1172 (type1 ) , 15Amp 3pin, 32Amp 3 phase and Menekes / Tesla (type2)

My friend and ex boss has designed a lithium powered battery charger to recharge electric cars that have run out of power.
These vans are over seas in Europe where he runs a business like our Racv etc. ( ps : he started the battery service all our auto clubs use here in Australia)
So now he is off to Europe to start a similar business. Because of the high amount of electric cars over there , the demand is high to “jump start” electric cars

Say Holland is 20,000 km from Australia, that's only 25 km per day. Pushbike would have been quicker.

Good on him for having a go though!

I wonder why the Op is posting aboiut Tesla charging points when he is the only one with an electric car which has a range of 70Km as advised to LRO.

I note that nobody has replied to the other thread where I pointed out that a Tesla has to be in cell phone range to be cleared by Tesla to enable Supercharging. Otherwise it takes hours to charge one.
I fear that the hype exceeds the reality by a large margin.

Excellent Idea but there is an easier way to emergency charge an electric car. .... Just Tow it . Works on all production electric cars, & DIY cars with A/C motor . (DC motors don't have regen )

All electric cars need to have A-Frame attachment points so they can be safely solid-towed .

The regenerative braking of an A/C motor will charger the batteries faster than any plug in charger..
Mark French ( ex Marks Adaptors) was telling me after his record breaking Simpson desert solar challenge he was at Birdsville & needed charging but also wanted to get back to Big Red to watch the other team , so he got his support car , Nissan GU with Duramax / Allison to tow him to recharge , On full regen it took less than 5km to fully charge the EV Suzuki & the Nissan was really struggling .

My Landy charges at 3.3 kw with the plug in charger , but when Im cruising along at 80kmh & lift my foot off the pedal I see (on the small BMS monitor) the regen returns up to 30kw into the batteries, as it slows to a stop that value decreases . I'm looking forward to taking it up a mountain & see how much charge returns on the way down.

I guess it’s a little hard to tow a car behind you in the busy streets of France or London where as a quick top up charge maybe all you need to get to the next recharge point [emoji4]

What a fantastic picture. Please, please, please create the situation where you can pull up outside some super swanky place full of $130,000 EVs and nonchalantly plug your old LR in.

A 70 year old woman completed the first documented circumnavigation of Australia in a Tesla, 20,000km . she only had to pay $150 for electricity along the way. A lot more than 25km a day too .

From the article:

these will add over 100 km of range per hour of charging for a Tesla Model S
That turns my eleven hour trip to Sydney into a twenty hour trip to Sydney. Longer if I tow the trailer.

It's quicker taking the Perentie. And that is saying a lot.

Mick Marsh, I have the feeling you are not going to be an early adopter . just thinking out loud !

Keep this up ya sleeve Mick, I'm sure you will find a use for it.

Well, my Tesla charges at over 600km/h at a Supercharger if the battery is quite empty. So a quick 15-20 min stop will suffice (filling up the Defender will take almost as long [smilebigeye]). 100km/h I will get using the onboard charger at any 32A 3-phase AC connector.

So, your Tesla charges whilst traveling. That's a long extension cord.
Oh, and watch out for the constabulary, they won't be too happy if they can't catch you.

He is referring to the fact that the Tesla S has a gauge on the central screen that shows Miles or maybe Km as the car is on the Supercharger.

I still wonder if all Teslas depend on a cell phone signal for mission control to authorize the car to be supercharged or only those that have been deauthorized by Tesla.

But maybe you know that and needed a sarc tag.
