It'd still take almost 5 hours to charge up 150 miles of range (the shortest route back to Barstow) at those high-power Tesla charging stations, and even longer using the standard J1772 stations (less time with the Supercharger, if they ever put any in, of course).

The Tesla high-power charger provides ~60 miles range/hour charging if you have the dual charger option on your Model S. So, that's just 2.5 hours for 150 miles worth of juice.

If you have the 85kwh Model S and its fully charged, you can drive LA to Vegas in one sitting with no recharge, though you might have to drive a little slower than normal. This has already been done successfully.
