Coming Soon To Best Buy – Car Charging Stations

By Chris Scott Barr

If you’re one of the few people that actually owns an electric car, you might be wondering where you can charge it, when not at home. Well next spring you might not need to look any further than your local Best Buy store. The company has announced that 12 of its locations will have Blink EV charging stations installed by next March.

Tucson, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Diego and Seattle are the five lucky cities that get to test out this idea. If people actually start using them, Best Buy will consider expanding the program to more stores. You have to admit, this is a pretty great idea. If people are waiting for their cars to charge, they’re probably just going to poke around Best Buy and eventually buy things. I wonder how many years it will be before these kinds of charging stations show up in all large cities.

    Best Buy, hmm. Can't think of a better place for one – except maybe at a gas station? So you can at least get a Mr. Pibb and some bugles while it charges?
