That is what I do.

This is "Copy free Link":

Sometimes it is a Blue Box with "Gift an unlocked article". Maybe that is a single "Gift" but I doubt it.

The links look the same.
 
Thanks for access to the article.

Leave it to them to fail to distinguish between "chargers" (sic) and "fast chargers."

I also find it odd that the article mentions:
"...I ignored the more common chargers known as Level 2 because they’re just too slow for quick fill-ups."

Yet, to support their reasons, they showed pictures of Level 2 charging station equipment:
