EV Etiquette Survival Pack - Hang Tags, Charge Notices and Sticky Note Requests
Materials: Recycled Paper, Recycled Plastic
Public plug-in vehicle charging. It is becoming more challenging than ever. The popularity of plug in vehicles has been outpacing the infrastructure in many areas and many new drivers are not acquainted with how to use good etiquette while charging. Problems arise when all the chargers are taken, EV drivers forget to plug in or overstay in a space, non-plugin vehicles block spaces and when people don’t leave their contact information when they charge. Take Charge and Go has developed tools to help with communication between drivers and spread the word on how to effectively use and share public charging equipment.
Introducing the EV Etiquette Survival Pack. The kit that has been mentioned in the New York Times (http://bit.ly/tcag-nytimes) and CBS San Francisco (http://bit.ly/tcag-cbs5)

The cards features in bold text “IF YOU ARE NOT CHARGING, THEN YOU ARE BLOCKING” along with a polite note and pointers towards good charging etiquette and a link to the Take Charge and Go website.

I had considered making similar tags myself but this is a much better option. Glad I found it. Kit as advertised.
These are awesome! Well thought out! Can't wait to use them and happy to have them in the glove box of my Chevy Bolt EV!
Amazingly well done. Ever since buying an electric car, I've always wished that something like this existed. I was overjoyed when I found out about the EV Etiquette Survival Pack and have been using it regularly ever since I received it.
Speedy shipping, and handy items. I've already put them to use for multiple events, and they are working fine. Good quality hangers.
