    Does Rivian work with Tesla Supercharger outside the US?

    Somewhat related question. I’m planning a trip to Canada this summer. Is there anything different I would need to do to use superchargers there or is it exactly the same across the border?

    Solid Floor Dog Hammock

    I just got this one delivered today. Fits the R1T back seat very well. I like the fit the best of any I've had. I would only give it a medium grade on durability, not as heavy duty as I would like but we will see how it goes...

    Great news. Now we just need something in Duluth.

    A2Z NACS To CCS1 Adapter Review

    Several times. I had to tweak them twice just to get an order confirmation weeks after I placed my order. I’m willing to cut them some slack but…..

    A2Z NACS To CCS1 Adapter Review

    Hi @A2ZEV I ordered on March 12 and have not received a shipping notice. Did something get misplaced with my order?

    The Ultimate Efficiency Report: MN to Sedona and Back in R1T

    I think so. Take Minutes/kWh (my charts are a little wrong I know see, they have kW and should be kWh). Invert that number and multiply by 60. So 0.5 Minutes/kWh would be 120 kWh charging rate.

    I've done the mobile service for tire rotation. I was fine but honestly the Discount Tire route is ultimately easier and cheaper. It took them quite a long time to rotate the tires so I'll just do Discount Tire from now on. I got 35k miles on my first set of 21" road tires with a lot of...

    Is charging in Wisconsin as bad as it looks?

    Tesla has a webpage where users can vote on new supercharger locations. Hayward, WI is on the list and has a pretty decent number of votes. A few hundred more votes and it could crack the top 10. Log on at the link below and vote for Hayward, WI...

    The Ultimate Efficiency Report: MN to Sedona and Back in R1T

    The elevation data is available on the web browser version of plugshare (www.plugshare.com). I've not found it on the phone app. On the browser go to "Plan a New Trip" on the filters submenu. Create your trip with selected charging stops then there will be a Trip Summary tab that shows up and...

    The Ultimate Efficiency Report: MN to Sedona and Back in R1T

    I don't have the adaptor yet so could only use the station in Ames, IA which is one of the Magic Dock locations. Quick, easy, reliable. Looking forward to using more of the Tesla chargers.

    The Ultimate Efficiency Report: MN to Sedona and Back in R1T

    Thanks for the kind words. We used the ZEF charger in Albert Lee because it is by a Caribou Coffee shop at the nice travel center in Albert Lee vs the CASEY's by the EA station. That's the reason basically, a preferred refreshment option. ZEF chargers are notoriously unreliable but the one in...

    The Ultimate Efficiency Report: MN to Sedona and Back in R1T

    For the whole trip I spent $495 on fast charging (not counting a stop during our stay in Sedona for daily driving). I purchased 1,338 kWh of energy for an average cost of $0.37 per kWh. I also used hotel/B&B at no cost for 5 nights that added up to around 200 kWh so that was worth about $74...

    The Ultimate Efficiency Report: MN to Sedona and Back in R1T

    That would have been fun. I actually looked to see if there were any planned events in Sedona when we were there but did not see anything. Chatted with a few Rivian folks at the Sedona RAN charger which is a very pleasant location.

    The Ultimate Efficiency Report: MN to Sedona and Back in R1T

    This trip/efficiency report will be mostly pictures and graphs and short on words. The graphs are pretty darn good and tell the story better than words could. We drove our R1T Quad Motor with 21" road tires from Minneapolis to Sedona to do some hiking by way of Des Moines, Omaha, Denver, Sante...

    What Am I Missing > Tesla Supercharging using Lectron Tesla adapter

    One other thing to try is a Tesla magic dock location. Is there one nearby?

    Who has the most miles on their R1 without a service?

    My R1T is at 40k miles. Only issue was a sticky charge port door requiring a new actuator motor. Best vehicle ever. Putting on 25,000 miles a year and thinking about when to trade in for a new R1T.

    2024.11.0 Software Update (Beta) Release Notes: Send Navigation, Mapping, Charging Feedback + Rear Display Improvements + More

    Depending on how it is implemented, the charger score could be very powerful. Rivian can automatically get data from every fast charging session done with every Rivian vehicle. This is a much deeper and more reliable data set than PlugShare which has pretty a low participation rate from my...
