    Thank you! It’s a fine mouse, the battery lasts legitimately months of use, and it recharges enough to use for the day in a minute. People just like yelling about Apple.

    My G Pro Superlight has a charge port on the front and I never use it while charging because it isn’t pleasant to use that way, with tension from the cable. I just go pee and come back and it’s charged plenty.

    I managed to snag a refurbished Pixel 6 Pro on Woot for $250 or so, and it’s been wonderful running GrapheneOS. Definitely some learning curves after being on iOS so long, but it’s great.

    The only thing I miss is contactless payment, but I’ve gotten used to it.

    They are genuinely more reliable. Having more stalls does help for when there’s issues, but they have 99.96% uptime across the entire network. I’ve had to move stalls once in my almost 3 years of ownership.

    They also have their own service people that travel to chargers to fix them, where Electrify America hires local electrical contractors that may not be experts on DC Fast Charging equipment.

    Edit: ran some numbers and I’ve charged 109 times on Superchargers. One failed session. I live in the rural Midwest/South so it’s not like I’m in EV heaven either.

    You’re not unlucky, in the U.S. any charger that isn’t made by Tesla is unreliable. It’s been getting worse over time, and the only real hope is that every manufacturer is switching to Tesla’s charge port (now called NACS) and getting access to their Superchargers.

    I had a non-Tesla EV and eventually got a Tesla because I need to road trip regularly and can’t handle chargers being down.
