Ooof I used to work right next door for a decade awhile back and a co-worker had an attempted car jacking at the "old" wawa here pre-remodel. He used to joke about what kinda thief tries to steal a Saturn. I wasn't sure if this face lift made a difference but was hoping so.Going up 95 to NJ it's quick jaunt from 295 just before the Delaware Memorial Bridge. Great EA charger. That's the charger I've gotten the best charging speed at (170kW max 140kw average). While new, the Wawa is a bit sketchy. In what kind of neighborhood does a Wawa make you pay for the cup before pouring your fountain drink?
Yeah best of luck. I had anxiety until I got my home charger. Luckily I do local quick driving so it's not so bad at all anymore.I like that station too, I use it when I go to Costco in New Castle
Maybe EA can buy out Chargepoint and get their S… together.
You can also globally set the minimum charging and destination SOC as well as many other parameters by clicking the hamburger icon (3 horizontal lines) in the upper left and then selecting Battery. If you want to alter the SOC for an individual charging stop then do just as mentioned.
Well.....in those "early years" of gas powered carriages, most often the only source of gasoline in the U.S. was "hardware stores" that would have a tank and a pump! .....and they were "few and far in-beween!"Yeah best of luck. I had anxiety until I got my home charger. Luckily I do local quick driving so it's not so bad at all anymore.
I'm sure it's frustrating having something nearby, which is a new technology you rely on, being Out of service so long. You'd think it would be something they'd keep on top of.
It makes me wonder if the first petrol stations after ford's new "automated" carriage were few and far in-between.
I've used EVGo a couple of times. They mostly performed as advertised, but my big issue is it can be hard to tell what the charging capacity is before you plug in. The ones I've used don't have a number on the unit like EAs. You can only tell using the app.What about the EVgo charging stations?
I would like to add one point. Besides the brand of charger, be sure you look at the different apps, including PlugShare as mentioned in a follow-on post.Across the globe there are more than a few brand names / charging networks available to use to recharge your vehicle. By brand name which ones do you use the most, and which ones do you use the least?
Buying an EV is a great idea, but charging is pretty complicated. Here's what you need to know before taking the electric plunge.www.autoblog.com
I was looking at A Better Route Planner for fun, looking at route from Amarillo to Las Vegas. Sometimes the ABRP route doesn’t seem to make sense. Along that route, ABRP has you leaving Interstate 40 to go up to Santa Fe (way out of the way) for a charge then coming back through Albuquerque and back in I40 headed west, even though there are plenty of charging stations in ABQ that are totally reachable.Is it just me or do you find www.abetterrouteplanner.com a little too strict in terms of how they route? i guess we just do long drives different than their calculations. I’m reluctant to end up at 10% at a charge station in the middle of nowhere. We did use their almost exact algorithm except charged a little longer at a few stations. We were traveling from St. Pete FL area to Annapolis MD. When we arrived at a station (FPL) in Yulee, FL at 10%, 5 of the 6 chargers were inoperable. The only working one was in use. So we waited. The rest of the trip I used plugshare and Google maps in combo to find preferable charge stations at locations that were not so remote.
Check the preferred networks in the settings to allow more options.I was looking at A Better Route Planner for fun, looking at route from Amarillo to Las Vegas.
