I have found couple of guides that answer most of my EV car charging questions :- http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/tips-and-a...complete-guide

Hereís the system we had in Israel 5 years ago provided by the now disappeared Better Place which integrated a route planning system and a nationwide installation of battery switch stations where we could exchange batteries in around 5 mins while sitting in the car.

Route planning:


My first ever time through a battery switch. Did this hundreds of times after that until the company failed 3 years ago.

Why pay for EV charging at all ?? In B.C. Canada we have FREE charging stations in most areas. See https://www.plugshare.com/ --- We simply plug in while shopping, attending functions, exploring, or while travelling. I have yet to plug my new Ioniq EV in at home. I often plug in at a close by station, then go for a walk or coffee etc. Range has not been a problem at all - Getting approximately 279 kms . It's actually fun locating stations and shopping and exploring new areas. I really enjoy driving by my local gas station and waving to them with a big smile. Fuel for FREE !!! -- Can't beat it !! LUV IT !!

Some 4 or 5 years ago we also had many charging points with free charging. But after a while they started to ask money for it.

Same business model in the UK Ecotricity got the contract for motorway service stations based on free charging, then as soon as they had a large number of charging points installed, the commercial model changed...

Not all L2 charge stations are free here in BC, and it seems to me that every week or two, another one is starting bill for a charge. L3 chargers are almost always a pay deal, but are SO fast.

I charge almost exclusively at home because I don't have time to wait hours for a charge while on the go during the day. That and the fact that I paid $336 in electrical costs to drive 20,000 km means that the time saved to charge while I sleep was well worth it.
