Of course, in the last year I've used a public charger all of maybe 3 times. There just aren't enough of them around here to make use of.
That's dedication and courtesy! Everyone should follow your example. Thanks for setting a good example.09Bamb00 wrote:how fun! we had this same discussion on another forum. Here in Florida there are no quick charge stations. the 1,2 charging stations are few and far between if you are not in Orlando or Tampa. So, here in the wilds of Lakeland, there are at least three electric vehicles, two leafs and one volt, that compete for the #2 charger. The volt and I have commutes of approximately 35 miles one way, if you're on the highway, otherwise it is closer to 40 miles. I must charge to make it home, especially if it is raining (which it does almost daily in Florida during the summer).
Needless to say, when we see the indication either on the station or on the car that it is fully charged or no longer charging, we will unplug. I have a mile walk to the charging station, so if I make it in first and it is finished around noon, I still have to change and walk to the station. So after several hiccups, I think we have all decided that this is not a bad thing.
