Tesla Motors is improving its electric car infrastructure by adding 10 charging stations along Australia’s east coast.

The charging stations are part of Tesla’s ‘destination charging program’ and are in addition to the company’s existing three superchargers.

Charging stations have been installed at various locations in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane and Melbourne. These include long-stay locations, such as shopping centres, hotels, a ski lodge and premium car parks.

Destination chargers can add an additional 93 kilometres to a Model S’ range over an hour and will replenish a flat Model S in an estimated four hours.

Tesla’s superchargers provide more range in less time; approximately 270 kilometres in 30 minutes.

The Model S 85 has an electric motor that produces 270kW of power and has a theoretical maximum range of 500 kilometres.

Recharging a Model S at a public station is free for Tesla owners.

Tesla plans on completing its supercharger network in Australia in 2016. The company has a strong network of superchargers in Asia, Europe and America with 439 stations hosting 2,419 superchargers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
