In http://visforvoltage.org/forum/2572-zapino-owner-feedback a couple people mentioned charging at work.
For an EV with SLA batteries (most of us) it's bad to leave the battery pack partly discharged. This is well known to kill batteries. So if you ride to work (partly depleting the pack) and let the EV sit without being charged until you ride back home.. this is supposed to be a bad thing. I myself don't know how bad it is to leave the pack partly discharged for 8 hours, just that it's not the best to do.
At my job (Sun Microsystems) the company has on-site EV charging. The charging facility has chargers for the large EV's sold in the late 90's, hence if someone were to drive an EV1 and park it on our campus they'd be able to charge up. But we all know what happened to the EV1 and hence those charger spots aren't used very much. There is, though, an outdoors style 120v outlet (EFI protected etc) which I use from time to time.
Electricity is essentially 'everywhere'.. so it seems it ought to be simple to get outdoors charging spots. This would solve part of the range issue - if you can do opportunity charges throughout the day, then your effective range is magnified.
