    Rivian Adventure Network (RAN) Fast Charging Launches in Colorado and California

    Aren't the DCFC chargers only for Rivian's - hence the plug and charge capability? Or can any CCS vehicle pay to use them?

    Rivian Not Cutting It - In Depth

    @ERguy thanks for sharing your experience with your Mach E. In my opinion, it is a matter of perspective when it comes to Electrify America and the CCS charging network. I think we all understand that the network has plenty of room for improvement - no one is disputing that. Like everything...

    Rivian Not Cutting It - In Depth

    Dave, I appreciate you and your friends' support on my quest to get an R1T faster. The irony is that there are a huge number of CCS chargers between Denver and Salt Lake, which are farther apart and smaller cities than the DFW metroplex and Austin. Heck, even in western Kansas there will soon...

    Rivian Not Cutting It - In Depth

    Dave, you are exactly right. You should tell all your friends with Rivian pre-orders that they should cancel them or push them back a year or two.

    Rivian Not Cutting It - In Depth

    Mike, no one wants to know the truth!!!! This kind of knowledge dropping will not help my campaign of getting whiney Tesla owners to cancel their Rivian pre-orders and get me closer to the top of the list!

    Rivian Not Cutting It - In Depth

    It is all good, Rob. Remember, happy wife, happy life. If she is has expressed doubts about the CCS charging network, you should listen to her. If you have a Rivian reservation, I would cancel since you don't need the stress. Seems like the Cyber truck and the CCS charging...

    EA Electrify America Network is like a box of chocolates... 2000 mile trip report

    Not sure what my credibility has to do with this thread since I did not start the thread, nor compile the very detailed info that was initially shared. Nor, did I start the whining about how perfect the Tesla supercharging network is, and how $hitty Electrify America is. We get it, it has...

    EA Electrify America Network is like a box of chocolates... 2000 mile trip report

    When I previously owned two Model S' and two Model X's from 2015 to 2019, I think I have all the credibility I need when it comes to the higher end Tesla's, and the lower end mass produced Tesla's. Enhanced credibility or not, I have as much or more experience with Tesla's than most people on...

    EA Electrify America Network is like a box of chocolates... 2000 mile trip report

    I think all people that ordered Rivian's, but now are having doubts about the Electrify America charging network, should cancel their pre-orders until the nationwide CCS charging network is more "reliable." If you can't handle a couple of charging bumps, the Rivian may not be for you at this...

    Rivian Not Cutting It - In Depth

    Don't get me started on the State of Wyoming. It is the North Korea of the US. If things go as planned, it looks like Electrify America will be on option through Wyoming for +300 mile range EV's by this fall. It is still risky since there is not a dense concentration of chargers like you...

    Rivian Not Cutting It - In Depth

    Seems like a Rivian is not for you if you struggle with anything non-Tesla and need to share your insecurity on a message board. The Electrify America network will not get any better anytime soon, and will continue to struggle as more and more CCS vehicles leverage the network. Looks like a...

    3400 Mile Road Trip Charging Performance Report

    Updated my post, so thank you for pointing it out. I meant to respond to Jesse's email on how he got ICED. With the J1772 extension cord, that possibility gets reduced significantly.

    3400 Mile Road Trip Charging Performance Report

    This has saved my bacon a couple of times when destination chargers were ICED. I leave this, and a heavy duty NEMA 14-50 extension cord in my frunk. My little Tesla tap sits on top of these for when I find a Tesla destination charger. These three items make a pretty useful "just in case...

    EA Electrify America Network is like a box of chocolates... 2000 mile trip report

    That report references the 181 open charging networks in the greater Bay Area. We are talking Electrify America in this thread. The study did not make any effort to call customer service to see if a cabinet reboot would get the charger up and running again, which is some cases, it does...

    OutofSpec Kyle: ‘The Oddest Charging Station I’ve Ever Been To’

    There is a little bit of a back story, but all good. This thread died a week ago and really should have stayed dead.

    EA Electrify America Network is like a box of chocolates... 2000 mile trip report

    40% - 70% availability? Based on what? I am not defending Electrify America, since they are not perfect and have plenty of work to do on the network, but that figure range is a stat you made up since you have no access to actual EA uptime, or availability, nor how it is even defined The...

    EA Electrify America Network is like a box of chocolates... 2000 mile trip report

    I am so over the "Tesla is perfect" crowd on this board. Nothing is perfect, not Electrify America. Not Tesla. I have charged at Electrify America locations in 14 states. Have done over 60,000 miles in an Audi e-Tron and multiple Porsche Taycan's since 2019. I have NEVER been stranded...

    EA Electrify America Network is like a box of chocolates... 2000 mile trip report

    Thank you for the additional details. The network is certainly not perfect, but it is all we have for right now. Your post also stresses the importance of the Plugshare app since feedback can help people decide a route depending on recent feedback about charging locations.

    EA Electrify America Network is like a box of chocolates... 2000 mile trip report

    @RivianXpress You completely outdid yourself with collecting data points on your road trip. You should be commended. I have charged at EA chargers in southern Utah, the EA chargers in and around Vegas, the EA chargers in Barston and Indio, and most of the EA chargers in Arizona in August...
