Las Vegas is arguably one of the most popular holiday spots in the United States. It’s not hard to see why. Tourists are drawn to the glitz and glamour of the city and there’s certainly plenty of ways to have fun. Whether you want to go shopping, see a show, or even go sightseeing, you’ll have no trouble finding something to do.
Of course, Las Vegas is primarily known for its casinos and lively gambling scene. Punters from countries all around the world, including Hungary, Slovenia, and Ireland, flock to Las Vegas. These gamblers look forward to playing casino games at places like kaparós sorsjegyek [valid where legal], according to Hungarian expert Sultés Szilvia.
Regardless of your reasons for heading on a Las Vegas road trip, you’ll still have to find a way to get there. While every method of transportation has its pitfalls, they aren’t necessarily the same pitfalls. These pitfalls are, in part, dictated by where you’re coming from.
Someone who lives in the USA, for example, faces a different set of travelling challenges than would someone who lives in Hungary. However, some concerns are universal, such as fuel. For instance, if you are travelling via an electric car, you’ll need to stop and charge your vehicle.
What is a Supercharger?
Tesla owns and operates a network of fast chargers known as Superchargers. This network contains over 25,000 Superchargers worldwide. However, these chargers can only be used by Tesla owners. The majority of Superchargers are conveniently placed near or on major routes, frequently near restaurants, hotels and shopping centres. Several Superchargers for Tesla electric cars are located in Las Vegas itself.
To maximise expediency as much as possible, Tesla provides both an alphabetical list of all Superchargers located in the USA and an interactive map showing the locations of the Superchargers on their website. As a result, you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a Supercharger.
Wherever possible, owners are billed per kilowatt-hour (usually abbreviated to kWh). However, some locations charge you per minute. Such places typically use a two-tier system to account for changes in charging speeds.
Tier one applies when your car is sharing a Supercharger with another vehicle. It also applies if your car is charging at 60 kW or less. Tier two—which is the more expensive tier—covers vehicles that are charging above 60 kW.
Exact costs vary considerably between locations, but you can check the rates for Nevada via the Energy Information Administration list. However, a Supercharger is capable of adding as much as 200 additional miles to your Tesla electric car in only 15 minutes. Charging your electric car above 80% isn’t necessary in most cases.
Regardless of which method of billing the Supercharger you choose favours, you probably don’t need to worry about prices or long delays. While you’re waiting for the car to charge, you can even find one of the station casinos in Las Vegas on your city map and head over.
Planning Your Las Vegas Trip
So, when is the best time to go to Las Vegas? We recommend that you schedule your trip to Las Vegas between March and May. The temperature will be somewhere between 21 and 26 degrees Celsius during the day, though it’ll probably cool down considerably after sundown. This is much more pleasant than it will be during the sweltering summer months.
In addition to the better temperatures, you’ll also experience less crowding. Most tourists tend to favour a summer date when they plan a holiday. By going to Las Vegas in the spring, you’ll avoid the crowds and improve the odds of getting good rooms.
Planning a trip always comes with a certain amount of stress and chaos. Luckily, figuring out how to charge your electric car doesn’t have to be a big part of that stress. Finding and using a Supercharger can be a simple process. You just have to be prepared.
