An article at Politico discusses the problems that electric vehicle (EV) owners face due to frequently malfunctioning EV chargers in America. The high number of charger malfunctions can be attributed to various factors, including outdated and poorly maintained charging equipment, unreliable software, and inadequate grid infrastructure. Additionally, the growing demand for EV chargers due to the increasing number of EVs on the road, exacerbates the issues associated with charging equipment maintenance and upgrades.
The article also notes that the lack of a standardized charging system across the country and varying regulations further contribute to the problem. So while efforts are being made to address these issues, it will likely take time and significant investment to establish a reliable and robust EV charging infrastructure in the United States.
