Re: Good going Google

Well necessity is the mother of invention. The more you push a massive company like Huawei, the more likely they are to build something new to compete and potentially beat you. It's a shame these big tech companies can't pool their resources for the greater good really.

Re: How long do you have to wait for an EV to charge?

Ok thanks for that. I see. So i drive 1.5 hours to work, then back home 1.5 hours. Then just plug in when I get home ready for the next day. Interesting.

Well it's on the cards for everyone in the UK from 2040 (maybe 2032!) anyway when the goverment bans the sale of new petrol and diesel cars so we'd better get used to it I guess!

How long do you have to wait for an EV to charge?

I was thinking about getting an EV but what deterred me was how long it takes to charge. If you plug it in a charge point at say a petrol station, how long do you have to wait till it charges up. Are you just sat there for an hour or so?
