What are you supposed to do while your electric car is charging?
In order to make electric cars more useful, a number of cities are building charging stations at various places around town. So if you are running errands or driving to visit people and you are running low on battery, you can stop in for a quick charge.
But my understanding is that the fastest an auto battery can recharge is something like 40 minutes, and (depending on technology) they can take multiple hours or even overnight to be up to capacity.
So figure that an electric car driver has time to kill during the charging process. is there a plan to create ‘reading rooms” or wifi hubs at electric charging stations? Would these be a suitable location for sit-down restaurants (fast food not being really relevant). Is this an opportunity for quick service brothels to take advantage of the drivers who have nothing else to do?
Has there been any thought to a good plan for this otherwise wasted time?
