Some Thoughts Around DCFC Etiquette

I saw this post, phrased in slightly different ways, in a few of the EV groups I follow on Facebook. As an Kia EV6 (and MME) owner, what I think this person has, I get it the minor inconvenience of waiting five minutes longer than you absolutely needed to is inconvenient, but this is a more complex topic than it […]

Payment Method Matters In Google Play

Not sure how John Wick 2 became the movie of choice on Sunday, but that’s what was requested. I thought we owned it, 1 and 3 are part of our collection, but somehow this guy slipped through the cracks… No problem, I had some Google Play credit associated to my personal account, I’ll just buy it there and have it […]

Rethinking Range Anxiety

This is going to sound crazy, but hear me out. There’s a lot of FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) out there around EV refueling (aka charging), especially when it comes to road trips.

Although, if you think about cars as gadgets, and most new cars are really computers that happen to take you places, maybe it’s not so far into the weeds :)… For OEMs, especially […]

Then There Were Two

I hadn’t made the time to write this post, mostly because I wasn’t quite sure how to explain how weird it was to go from EV-curious to a two EV household in four months… Some of that weirdness is perfectly encapsulated in the research article linked below, which has helped to frame the things I wanted to say out loud.

Rising Supercharging Fees Suck, but they are not the end of the world… cough… autoevolution…

I understand why drivel like this hackjob from autoevolution titled “EVs No Longer an Economic Alternative to ICEs As Supercharging Rates Go Through the Roof” exist. The answer is clicks. So usually I ignore the poor math, logic, reasoning, and improper use of data because it’s generally better to just ignore stupid, than engage with it. But today, I’m rolling […]
