When I need charging away from home, I prefer to go for a walk to guarantee my 10,000 steps each day. I have also been known to read or shop. Just within the last year, I have become aware of many more charges in the areas I frequent away from home.

I will fall asleep at the level 2 charge station for hours dreaming of tomorrow when ChargePoint will start selling and installing (DCFC) charge stations in Arizona. ChargePoint has not sold and/or installed even 1 fast/quick charge station in this State.

Edit: OK, they did install one at a BMW dealership that has been broken for going on a year. This is in a city metro area that has a population that makes it the 10th largest in the United States.

That is the only Chargepoint charger I use. There are 2 of them outside a movie theatre. Good for dinner and a show. Bad because I've had my car keyed there and there are routinely large diesel trucks parked in one of the spots or parked in the middle of both for obvious aggression.

In today's modern world of super cheap cellular data and pixels, I think the next gen Chargepoint stations should have a 4MP+ camera on each spot to capture license plates in enough resolution to read plus the surroundings on the vehicle. Should make it easy to use the new app to send a notification to Chargepoint HQ who would contact a local towing company with a photo of the vehicle plus a video sent to the local code enforcement to issue the offending vehicle a fine. And when things get vandalized because people hate EVs, there is full video that can be pulled.

I like destination charging. I have work charging by CP. I have used charging at two shopping malls, but they are not my favorite malls. More designation charging for shopping, eating and parks would be nice.
