    I also found some forums talking about this (some from 2013 so I'm behind the curve as usual). Some propose using simple coin operated timers like many gas stations use for air or water. One linked to this on ebay but there are other products around https://www.ebay.com/itm/Coin-operated-Timer-Cont...

    Wow. That is a stunner. In that case you'd really almost need to directly monetize the charger or set a time limit i.e. 'Need to top off? Get up to 30 minutes free charge time on us! Members can come in, have a coffee and charge up to an hour." Just reaching here. Didn't think it took that long....

    Makes me want to get a facility just to experiment - if I had money to toss around. Thinking about what you said I guess in rural areas you can match the facility 'extra features' to the need of your community - for example have a couple computers to rent (a mini version of a computer cafe) or a...

    Thanks Storman. I guess everybody comes at the business with different expectations. I can see how a quiet facility that is low on customer interaction, but that still produces reliable income, would be a good thing. Less stress, less problems. I know the gas stations my father ran were busy, so if...

    Ah, I pulled the numbers from some published reports but he has had some setbacks so you might be right (launching rockets, digging tunnels - Elon has a lot of irons in the fire

    That is a great idea to partner with Uber/Lyfts.

    The system we are offering does not have a 'charge...

    That's interesting. It actually fired off another train of thought in my brain. My dad use to own some gas stations with convenience stores - called that for obvious reasons. His goods cost a bit more because he didn't buy bulk like supermarkets but people still purchased them while they were fueling...

    I had not considered this. I wonder how long it takes to charge up a vehicle? Will have to look that up....

    We just added a couple EV Charging stations to our product line and I was wondering about how these might be used in self-storage.

    A little background: there are roughly 155,000 gas stations in the USA, and about 44,000 electric charging stations. Vehicle manufacturers have more electric...

    I'm a vendor but assume this is still relevant. We use LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter and in checking Google Analytics referrals I can see we get a few visits to our main site every week - not an outstanding number when not running an ad but you play the numbers; any one of those visiting could...

    Vegas 2018 Expo

    I've been a little remiss. I went to the show and didn't say how great it was - and I hate going to trade shows. We went there as vendors to showcase some of our products and spoke to lots of cool people. We gave out more catalogs than usual so I'm going to guess there was record or near record attendance....
