Wordless Wednesday: Charge It!

I'm cleaning up my pictures on the computer, and came across this one.
On the way in to the movies...we saw an electric car charging station.

On the way out, we saw a car actually utilizing it. Cool, right?
My first time ever seeing a station in a parking lot.
Do you have them where you live?

  1. I've only seen one car at a charging station - you're right, it's rare.

  3. I've never seen one in my area but maybe they have them in the Twin Cities? That's pretty cool!

  5. I have never seen a car charging station before, so this is pretty neat. I had no idea there were such things :)

  6. I've seen one in our area, but I've never seen a car using it!

  7. I don't think I've ever seen one! Pretty cool.

  8. Don't even think there is one around here. Be nice though not have to deal with gas every again.

  9. Where I worked there was one across the street. I worked there for 3 years before I realized it was there! A guest asked me where it was, I was embarrassed to find out it was right across the street!

  10. I've never seen one of those. I suppose they'll get more regular soon. But that is so cool!

    Is he charging the piggybank too? Is that a piggy bank? :)

  12. We don't have any of these in our little town.. sure would be nice to see one- pretty cool! Thanks for sharing!

  13. I actually just saw my first one last week! I had no idea what it was at first. Of course, the one I saw was placed so far from the closest stores and restaurants that I could see it being less well used than it should be.

  14. I've yet to see a car being charged at one of those stations...such a weird concept to grasp, lol!

  15. I have seen those charging stations in Arizona, but none here in Vegas. Im sure they are here thought. Just seems funny!!!
    Happy Wednesday!!

  16. I have never, ever seen them here. I suppose we have them - somewhere.

  17. Our mall has several in the parking lot. They actually get used quite often here.

    ReplyDelete
  18. There's a ton of car-charging stations around where I live (Silicon Valley). It's really cool!

    ReplyDelete
  19. That is really cool Rosey! I never saw that before! Yiu son looks so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm sure we do somewhere, but I've never seen one.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I don't think I've ever seen a fully electric car in my life. I've seen plenty of hybrids though.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I've seen a few but never anyone charging up

    ReplyDelete
  23. We are in the market for a new car and I would love to have an electric car. Super energy efficient.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I wish we had more of these! We want to get an electric car but there are no stations to charge at yet

    ReplyDelete
  25. How neat! I haven;t seen any where we live. Congrats on the Angry Bird win! My son would have been thrilled!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't think it is a concept that is working out to good - do you?

    1. I don't know a thing about them? I wonder if you can just get in your car an go... like from state to state on a whim. Nice to see you out and about! :)

  27. I haven't seen any car charging stations around here. I know in Erie they sell the electric cars but I have no idea where they would charge them except at their home.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Heh I lived in Los Angeles when electric cars first came out so I have seen A LOT of these charging stations.

    ReplyDelete
  29. There's a charging spot at our local Khol's AND all the stops on our way down 95 to Philadelphia. So cool to see a car charging!

  30. My husband drives a Chevy Volt, and we love having an electric car. Unfortunately, there are not nearly enough charging stations in our town. There is one at a large park that we go to, and we charge the car whenever we are there. I've decided that my next car will probably be a Volt, too. You can't beat the cost of driving it! It's supposed to cost $1 a day in our electric bill, but we've never noticed a difference. Plus, our car note is about $300 a month because they were trying to give these cars away to get more on the road.

  31. That is super cool! I've never seen something done like that before.

  32. This is really changing the landscape of automobile industry! It’s cool to have these stations!

    ReplyDelete
  33. That is really cool! I haven't ever seen that before here but it's a brilliant and convenient idea!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't drive but I think it is a fabulous idea and I wish it would catch on more. I remember hearing that the car itself doesn't cost nearly what a regular car costs and is good for getting around the city... perfect for me, I might actually get to drive someday ;) xox

  35. We have these everywhere in LA!

    ReplyDelete
  36. We have them all over the SF bay area too! So cool! Pretty soon we will all have them on every block. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. We don't have it here but I know some places where they do have something like this! Really cool yes =)

  38. I've only seen these at Ikea, so it's cool to see that there are more out there! And what a cute picture of your son!

    ReplyDelete
  39. That is pretty cool! I am sure they have them in the Boston area, but nothing around here. I love that the pig from Angry Birds made an appearance in your picture! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Interesting! I've never seen one before.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I looked it up once and there are several here, but I've never seen them. I'm not sure I'd even recognize them!

    ReplyDelete
  42. What car was that? We don't have charging stations here so far. I hope in the future we would also have those innovations!

    1. I didn't check what kind of car it was... we just saw it on our way out from the theater charging. My first time seeing a charging station, or a car on it.

  43. I wonder if these would really save that much when you can only charge them in specific places. And with the cost of electricity, the extra mileage to drive to the chargers, and the time?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Totally cool! I haven't seen one here yet. I think we need to do some looking around and see if there's one somewhere. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow, this is so cool! I've seen chargers around here, I'd love to have one myself.

    ReplyDelete
  46. ha. i have not seen those around here....but it sure would come in handy
    if your batteries ran low....

    ReplyDelete
  47. We have them around here... I see them in use at times, but still find them odd. lol

    ReplyDelete
  48. That smile was precious, and loved that green piggy bank :)
    yes, i see these kinda cars everywhere around my town :)

    Thanks for the linkup...happy WW

  49. I've only ever seen these for golf carts! I would love to see one in action with a real car!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have actually never seen one of these.I don't know anyone that drives one either.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Cars that charge blow my mind. I love spotting those parking spaces!

    ReplyDelete
  52. We don't have any electronic car charging stations where I live. At least, not that I know of or have see. I know they do in a bigger city close by. I've seen them. I have never seen a car hooked up to one, though.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I've only seen this once or twice in my area. They are so cool right?!

    ReplyDelete
  54. That is pretty cool. We have one of these stations in our downtown section, and I have NEVER seen anyone use it. Makes me wonder if it even works, but I remember it being in the newspapers because there was some big issue with keeping it there in the past.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I have never seen one before! That is too cool!

    ReplyDelete
  56. one of the coolest inventions ever....we have a few of it at our local grocery store!

  60. Seen the charging stations in Phoenix. Not here though.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I have never seen one of those before. We do not have a lot of the electric cars around here. Not a lot of demand for them.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I never paid attention to electric car charging stations because we have quite a few in my area. But you are right, they are pretty cool and will become more commonplace as the years go by.
