  1. General EV Discussion
    Hi All, Doing some research for a university project. Would love for you all to give me your opinion on the below. Since owning an EV have you found yourself indulging on coffee and food whilst waiting for the vehicle to charge? Or if not, would an incentive to visit a food/drink...
  2. General EV Discussion
    Hey guys! I was wondering how many of you don't have home charging like me. Since I solely rely on public units, I find that I sometimes have to deliberately go out for the purpose of charging (e.G. before a long trip). Anyone else in a similar situation? How often would you say this happens...

    I got my first EV last week and will mainly be charging at home as I do very low mileage. However, for those occasional road trips I'll obviously be looking to use rapid chargers en route.

  7. General Charging Discussion
    Can I ask why no-one has produced a properly engineered low-tech public charge point? It would look like a self-service petrol pump. Weather proof card reader and charging cables. No clever apps and Comms to go wrong. And you would test it in the Arctic and the Sahara, just like they do with...
