As more people adopt electric vehicles, public charging is becoming a hot topic. This is especially true since several networks are beginning to grow more rapidly across the globe. One of the best parts of EV ownership is being able to plug your car in at home and have its battery replenished while you sleep, and for much less money than the cost of gas.
If you own an electric vehicle, and you travel regularly, you have to rely on public fast-charging. If you're a Tesla owner, you have exclusive access to the Supercharger network, plus you can use other public networks, too. If you don't own a Tesla, you'll be relying on networks like those from Ionity, Electrify America, and others. Most of these networks are growing and becoming more reliable.
