Welcome to Knoxville 馃檪. Our level 2 charging infrastructure has been going up like crazy in downtown. There are a few in garages (free on weekends) a short walk from the Ice Bears rink. Knoxville鈥檚 EA station has been having some issues lately, with 1 to 2 of their chargers being down most of the time. The one outside of Chattanooga has been pretty reliable

Sorry to parse your message but wanted to check in on these two stations. We are heading back to ATL tomorrow but making pit stops in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, with the questionable Shell Recharge station in Franklin NC we are going to take the slightly longer route through Knoxville and Chattanooga to get home and these are the two EA's that ABRP is suggesting.

Did you run into any wait at either one or were they pretty open?

We are leaving Asheville at 100%, going to L2 charge at 6KW for a couple hours outside Titanic museum in Pigeon Forge then set ABRP to head back to ATL. It is suggesting a 11 minute charge at EA on Walbrook drive then 40 mins at Little Debbie to get home with 20% remaining.
The Knoxville EA was completely offline a fews days ago, but 3 chargers are back up now. Sevierville EA is up. None of the slow EVGo DCFCs work in Knoxville. The EA outside of Chattanooga is one of the best in the area.

Knoxville to Chattanooga at about 75mph will use about 50% of your battery.

If you charge at the Kodak EA before getting on the interstate you can make it down to Chattanooga just fine. Then you don鈥檛 have to deal with potentially waiting to charge in Knoxville. That one sometimes has a wait, and the equipment there is less reliable so sometimes 3 chargers work and sometimes only 1 (although currently 3 work). I never see problems from the one on the Kodak exit. Part of the issue is that local people with free charging will shop at Walmart and Sams. They really should have given us 8 chargers 馃
