This is what makes Tesla's infrastructure pretty compelling, it should all just work. Having to juggle apps and accounts depending on the charger is very different to optionally using a loyalty card when paying for petrol.

I'm not an EV owner, but to reduce friction, being able to pre-pay for a certain amount of energy (I'm thinking of a similar situation to using an Oyster card on the tube in London) or paying at the end of a charge with a tap of your phone or bank car would be the no brainer here.

EV adoption isn't going to slow because of the friction but I would have thought he friction isn't going to make it any faster.
