"We also charge at customers and keep chargers in van although the back pack battery does take a while to charge but most jobs are all day so a bit easier for us. We don’t tend to run out of charge like we used to."

"We currently take our charger with us daily and plug in at customers whenever possible.  Although it is starting to get knocked about a bit.  Might be worth me buying an additional fast charger and keep the other one at home to use for the overnight…"
