I've been running through the math of "how long am I going to be stuck at " to get enough juice to move along. When I'm driving around town, it's easy-peasy because I can just come home at the end of the drive and plug in. It's the less common case -- the road trip -- that inspires this.
In any case, I wrapped all this up in a simple Web app at:
I also put the code on GitHub here:
Why I'm mentioning this is:
- Somebody might find it useful.
- I'm not an EE. Some of you are. I don't even know if my numbers match reality.
- If it is useful, it's open source, so for those of you who are devs, fork it, hack away to your heart's content and send me pull requests (be sure to look at the README)!
(If you're not a software dev, this probably sounds like Greek.)
Any comments are mucho appreciated. I may have missed the mark entirely. By the way, this is not supposed to be a replacement for or duplication of the keen little thing Tesla has that allows you to figure out how much your charging will cost based on your average drive. It's supposed to figure out your estimated wait at a charger and answer questions like: Is it a long lunch, a day hike, an overnight?
