Plug-Side Chat: What do you do when chargers are full?

I was recently asked what I do on long trips when I arrive at a charging site that is full (all the chargers are occupied). This is my take on the situation.

You have three options: Wait for a charger to become available; queue at one of the chargers; move on to another charger.

Waiting is probably the most common strategy, but it also takes the most time away from your trip. EVs already take longer to refuel than internal combustion vehicles, and waiting could mean doubling that time.

Queuing is the next best option. If you are at a site where you already intended on spending time, queuing allows you to maximize that time by allowing you to initiate your session and go have dinner (or whatever you intended to do).

Moving on is, in my opinion, the best option, but it requires you to be able to make it to the next charging site. However, this option requires a redundant charging network, and it requires you to have enough battery left to make it to the next charging site.

Let me know how you handle these situations!
