Tekochip,  that depends on the battery.  Some have more, other less of resistance/ chemical.  A!@# has little resistance thus makes almost no heat.

Jerry, am a non us citizen and am staying in a country where only very limited of EVs are in market. So public charging stations are not so common and I think such apps may not be suitable in current situation. In such situation we have to charge either from our house or office, which ever place suitable. As of now, there is no any free or public charging places, but I think if the crude oil prices are jumping like this most of the people may turn to EV and hence chances for public charging facility.

Mydesign, only in the last few months have there been charging stations becoming available in the US and few EV's are available here so not so different than here. We have a very long way to go.

I've built, driven EV's for 15 yrs. mostly as my only transport and rarely had a problem finding a plug to charge from and even offering to pay, rarely had too. Most were quite happy to help.  Afterall every outlet in the world is a potential charge point. Can't say that for gasoline/diesel.

And one can always carry a very small generator for unlimited range from fuel at far better mileage than any similar gas/diesel can because EV drive is 3-7x's as eff and the gen runs at max eff vs a car motors making a total of 7% eff!!
