We recently visited Las Vegas for 3 nights to see Elton John (incredible show, 8 rows back) and Cirque du Soleil. At our hotel (Vdara, smoke and casino free), the Valet's put our car on a trickle charge (regular 12amp plug). Since we arrived in Las Vegas with only 50 miles, charging at 3 miles/hr would allow us to charge back up for our return trip. However, we wanted to take a day trip to see the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. This is where the Las Vegas supercharger was a godsend. This allowed us to charge up quickly and do this day trip without any range anxiety or concern. Yes, we could have found a level 2 charger, but having a supercharger in our destination (i.e. metro charger) was so much more convenient and clearly relieved any range anxiety about doing this trip.
For me, this confirmed what I have thought for the last year: we need superchargers in destinations, not just on the way to the destination.
