Charging at Level 2 Charging Stations

Ever notice that when you get a new car, (meaning new to YOU) or something that’s seen in public you start to notice others who have the same car/thing as you? It’s just a human nature thing to notice stuff once you have it. I recently discovered and purchased a Level 2 EVSE (Electric Vehicle

WebBikeWorld 2020 CAKE Kalk& Review: Kalk Of The Walk

I was hired by WebBikeWorld to write an article about what it’s like to actually own a CAKE KALK& since there is very little information about actual ownership online as of September 2020. Lots of demo ride videos and one owner ride video are about the only things that can be found. This is a
