Usually sleeping while the car (currently a Leaf, but I'm looking to get a new EV in the next couple of years) is charging. Timer set for one hour of charging 3AM to 4AM. Have used different charging times in the past, this is what is working now.

I like to go into the garage and watch the blinking lights! ;)

What’s with the Bolt preface, on a LEAF forum no less? :? Weird.

Shop, that is when using ChargePoint chargers :)
At home it would be sleep as I generally have it charge during the wee hours.

Assuming this is at a public charging station and not at home, I will:

1. Shop (if that is what I am there to do)
2. Eat (if there's someplace nearby that's open, and I'm hungry)
3. Have a coffee (again if there's someplace nearby that's open)
4. If none of the above are options, sit in the car and surf the internet or watch videos on my smartphone or tablet.

we need chargers at movie theaters.. that way I have a full movie and a full battery when i leave.

Right now I'm either a sleep when my car charges 2:30am to 7am each morning or I'm at work and I'm grabbing some extra Kwhs from the hotel next door to help me get in other trips during my lunch break.

My favorite public charging points that I make use of are at beach/park locations (especially at low tide).
I hope with the increase of EVs in this area more can be installed and hiking trails parking areas as well.
Charging while shopping/eating is convenient as well as charging at or near workplace.

DCFC; grab food, drink and discard previous food (but mostly drink ;) )

L2; Wouldn't be there unless there was something there I was wanting to do like shopping, hiking, eating, etc.

Some DCFCs literally have nothing in the area so yeah, sometimes its just sit and surf
