Tesla continues to install Magic Dock on its Superchargers in the US to open them to all EVs. Their number continues to grow in New York State, hinting that testing of the program will begin here.

It was revealed midway through this week that Tesla had retrofitted its first Supercharger site for third-party electric vehicles in the US. This Supercharger station is located at 5218 Patrick Rd, Verona, New York, just two hours from Giga New York in Buffalo, where Tesla makes Supercharger piles. Since the news broke, several Tesla car owners have traveled to see the Magic Dock installed there in person. To be clear, the Magic Dock stations can still be used by Tesla owners with the proprietary connector. However, with the Tesla App, they unlock a CCS adapter which will allow other EVs to charge.

@OutofSpecDave/Twitter was one of those who wanted to see the Magic Dock installed in Verona in person. However, there were additional surprises in store for him on this journey. According to several videos posted throughout Saturday, he was able to locate two more Supercharger sites in New York State with the Magic Dock in place. One of them was found in Brewster, and the other in Red Hook. Along the way, he also visited Supercharger stations in Albany and Utica, though
 no additional equipment was installed there.


So far, New York State is the only one in the US where Magic Docks have been spotted. This hints that this state may begin testing a charging program for non-Tesla vehicles. This is also a smart move considering that the Supercharger and Magic Dock factory is located here.

Tesla has committed to opening about 7,500 Supercharger stations by the end of next year for all EV drivers in the US. The move is intended to encourage the spread of electric vehicles in the country and contribute to the success of the United States in achieving its goals.
