This was a new experience for me. I was excited to find two unused chargers near my destination yesterday, only to find out that the chargers offered only ChAdeMO and DC Combo charging, neither of which I could use with my Karma. When I came back later, there was a Leaf charging using the ChAdeMO port at 100KW (30x our level II charging rate). The Revero comes equipped with the DC Combo port, but I don't think it can use the full 100 KW. Still, it's pretty impressive to be able to charge an EV up to 80% in 20 minutes. (Note: The EV-only spot is on the left side of the hashed space. My car was parked in a standard parking space and I was definitely not blocking access to the charger.)

Incidentally, the charge was not cheap. EVGO was going to charge me $5.95 to connect and another $0.20 / KWH. They do offer plans for frequent chargers, but the drop-in charge is pretty steep, IMHO.

I didnt snap a pic but yesterday I rolled into the Malibu Country Mart and plugged into the free charger right next to where the TESLA club was having a gathering. They looked at me and my white Karma like we came from another planet. lol. Next time I will snap a pic. The Karma was the best looking EV there by a mile.
