We were thrilled to discover the best EV parking garage we've encountered so far in Wilmington, NC. The garage's excellent signage, both outside and inside, made locating the chargers a breeze and added to the overall convenience of the charging experience. It's always a delight to come across such well-designed and user-friendly charging facilities.
Our journey towards Greenville, NC led us to a planned stop at a Piggly Wiggly to utilize their Shell Recharge Stations. Unfortunately, we encountered the all-too-common frustration of finding both stations offline, even after contacting technical assistance and attempting a reset. This serves as a reminder of the challenges faced by EV drivers when encountering inoperable charging stations.
Despite the setback, we pressed on and discovered another fast-charger in Kinston, NC, which turned out to be a pleasant surprise as it was also free of charge. This unexpected find provided a reliable and cost-effective solution to ensure our journey continued smoothly from Carolina Beach to Greenville.
