Once charged up, the user can then bookmark the charging station in the smartphone app and add it to their list of personal favourites, as well as rating the station and recommending it to their friends. With so many features to help increase the flexibility and ease of driving electric, as well as curing 'range anxiety', PlugSurfing is fast becoming a vital aid for electric vehicle drivers everywhere.
