Okay so you stop en-route to charge up. What kind of things do people do to while away the time? I can see some/all of the following choices depending on length of wait
a-toilet break, drink and/or food
b-read a book
c-watch a movie
d-sleep
e-plan route ahead, esp charging points
f-phone a friend/family
g-work on computer for work
h-work on social media
i-go for a walk
j-monitor charging rates, learn about this EV etc.

Perhaps I have missed some ideas. Anyone do anything weird?

Usually at a rapid the rountine is
a) "anybody want the loo?" (2 out of 3 of us do) so off to loo, get a drink or food.
b) eat food and return to car with drinks.
c) set sat nav for next stop and wait 10 minutes til charged up enough.
D) disconnect and jump in the car.
E) the one who didnt want the loo now says they do!!
F) swear, wait 10 minutes and then set off.

Pretty normal I imagine.

Rapid charging is generally for work so open up the laptop and do some work, after getting a coffee
