I am new to EV. I have never driven EV before test driving S60 and now eagerly awaiting the arrival of my S85 in July.
As many others in similar wait state I am spending a lot of time on these forums looking for road trip suggestions, charging tips, etc.
To my positive surprise I discovered a lot of nice people that are willing to share their chargers to help travelers in need.
My question is on the appropriate etiquette. I live in Brooklyn, NY and if someone wants to charge the car in my driveway they can walk or use public transport to go about their business while their car is charging. How does that work in suburbs? Charging most likely takes an hour or more so do I hang around the strangers' house during that time? Do I bring food, wine other gifts ? What do people do in these cases?
