    The City of Bradenton has 8 new stations and they are all level 2, 240V/30A ChargePoint stations w/ J1772 plugs @$1.50/hr. One station is right at the South Florida Museum and another is across the street at the Chamber of Commerce. Click on those links for the addresses. Other ChargePoints are in close proximity along main street and the waterfront.

    Hi Nigel,

    Not owning an EV (yet) I don't have any hands-on experience with chargers. When leaving the "Revenge of the Electric Car" event at the Planetarium a Volt owner demonstrated that the ChargePoint stations can be accessed with a credit card that has an RFID chip. So I learned that it seems that you're not locked in to needing a ChargePoint card.
