Public charging from the key, charging at home.

30 Jan 2023 10 mins to read
Electric vehicles (EVs) have always needed a public charging network, not for daily driving, but for weekend trips where a 300-mile drive isn't enough.
Public charging from the key, charging at home.
Summary:That is why Tesla has built a massive network of public charging stations, Volkswagen should build one too, and numerous startups have invested heavily to fill this gap. But all this great news is not what most EV drivers need.

Electric vehicles don't need oil changes, gaskets, cylinder head treatments, spark plugs, clogged valves, or gasoline. 

Most of us grew up in large families and started driving on our own at the age of 16. We know what it's like to own a car, but we don't know much about electric vehicles. Simply put, electric vehicles have more in common with smartphones than conventional cars. You don't need to change oil, change gaskets, refinish cylinder heads, change spark plugs, clog valves, or change gasoline. And this is the most important thing.

Station at home

Station at home

The need to use gasoline in an internal combustion engine is simple. It's fuel. That's why you need a gas station. Not only do we not want to have a large gas tank under the house, but we also do not want to pump city gas directly into the house. This is not a good idea. On the other hand, electricity is readily available in every home, building and workplace. You cannot build a gas station in your garage, but you can install an electric vehicle charger.

Imagine that you have to walk around the city in search of a special charging point to charge your mobile phone. It would be an absolute nightmare.

It's hard to imagine, but think if your smartphone didn't have a charger. Imagine that you have to wander the streets in search of a special charging point to charge your mobile phone. It would be an absolute nightmare. The same applies to the public service of electric vehicles. Sure, it's great for when you need it or you're on the road, but it's not fun or ideal for every day use. The ability to charge at home makes it even better. Go home, plug it in, and forget about it until you need to use your car again. Everything is very simple.

Public menace

Public menace

Honestly, do you really enjoy driving to the gas station? Nobody does and it takes five minutes. Now imagine that you have to drive to the gas station every day for two hours. It sounds really bad, but that's exactly what we want to do with today's public charging networks. Even overloading a Tesla in about 40 minutes is not the best solution for daily driving.

Honestly, who really enjoys driving around gas stations?

Supervisors or fast pacers are just part of the success of the electric vehicle ecosystem. It's what 90% of automakers and would-be EV drivers focus on and effectively solves about 10% of charging problems. Building a public fast-charging network is important, but bringing chargers into people's homes is far more important.The problem is not only convenience, but also fun, and electric cars will never take off until this problem is completely solved.

I think it's cool that more and more public charging stations are popping up all over the place.

I never realized how much I relied on gas stations until I got an electric car.

I can't wait until wireless charging technology is available for electric cars.
I can't wait for technology to improve and for electric cars to be able to drive longer distances without needing to be charged.
I feel like electric cars are becoming more and more common. Have you noticed an increase in the amount of electric cars on the road?
The convenience of being able to charge your car from home is a game changer.
Yo, is anyone else annoyed when you have to use those public chargers?
I just got my electric car and I'm obsessed. It's amazing how quiet and smooth the ride is.
Charging at home is definitely the way to go. It's convenient and you can save money by charging during off-peak hours.
I always forget to bring my charger with me when I'm on the go. #firstworldproblems
Can you charge your car from a regular outlet or do you need a special charging station?
I'm thinking about getting an electric car, but I'm concerned about the cost of installing a charging station at home. Anyone have any tips or advice?
Electric cars are the future. From saving money on gas to reducing carbon emissions, it just makes sense.

I wish my apartment complex had charging stations for electric cars.
