The really frustrating things about ev charging revolve around when you do it away from home. Perhaps the biggest bugbear is whether the charger is working. My view is that it must be a legal requirement that who ever owns a publicly available charging point must have a response plan in place for when it goes out of service. Now the question then arises as to the service level requirement.
Now, I have seen charging points that have been reported on zap maps as being out of service for more than a day. Totally unacceptable. But, is that because they have not been reported as having come back into operation? I admit I have no idea what are the reliability requirements. It may be that actually, they are more stringent than i’ve already advocated. I think I need to do some research.
There is no doubt though, that whilst there are nowhere near enough charging points around, the situation is improving.
And the beer? I had two pints of lager tonight. I think it was Māori. It was very smooth, and not only did it go down very easily, it went straight to my brain. Need to be careful with that.
