Episode 3 - A Future For Faraday?
Happy New Year! The 50th anniversary CES kicked off in Vegas this week and one of the first big stories was a HUGE event from Faraday Future. In case you don't know who they are, they announced a "Tesla Killer" EV a year ago. They have been plagued with financial issues and written off by some as vaporware. But they came back with a vengeance when they announced the FF91. It IS a badass car! But it has been met with headlines like this one from Digital Trends: Faraday Future needs to start making cars, and stop stroking its own egoYikes! We run down all the features and specs on this week's episode. So, what's up with that logo? The company's initials... falling flat on their face. EEK. NewsElon says the Roadster is coming back!

Read more at ElectrekTip of the WeekCharger etiquetteIf you're using a slow (Level 2) charger and don't need the charge to get to your destination (topping off), leave a note on your dash with your cell number. That way if someone who needs to charge is waiting you won't have to worry. When using a Supercharger, note that the A and B units for each number share the charge. So if someone is using 1A, don't plug in to 1B if other stalls are open. You'll both charge faster if you are the only one on that number. If they're busy all bets are off. But why slow each other down if you don't have to? Visual aid. Leave some space Need something to listen to on your commute or next road trip?
