Charging Stations a Challenge for Electric Cars
Anton Klima is a self-described electric-car fanatic. The Los Angeles television cameraman is already on his second electric vehicle, a battery-powered BMW Mini E.
To make sure he's carbon-free, he charges the car from solar panels on the roof of his Hollywood Hills home. When he's out and about, Klima has to make do with a patchy network of public chargers left over from California's original electric-car campaign a decade ago. While he can now track down chargers with an iPhone app, the shape of the plugs has changed, so Klima has to carry three adapters to be sure he can power up.
"After a while, you get used to" the hassles, Klima says.
