EV Chargers Should Be Dumber

There are so many aspects of our lives that are being over-engineered and this is definitely one of them. The one thing gasoline has going for it at the moment is that you can pull up, fill up for a few minutes, pay and you're gone. It cannot get much simpler than that. In contrast, EV charging seems to involve apps. App after app after app. We don't have a full EV at the moment, but even just for parking I have three apps on my phone.

Dumb charging is where it's at. I'm sure an EV future isn't far away but any and every barrier should be removed to get us there quicker.
