Hello EV Tuesday readers. What a unique date it is today. Did you know todays date is both an ambigram and a palindrome? It reads the same upside down and back to front!
How are we all? Are you having a good week so far? We have been busy here at EV Cables sourcing some excellent tools, tips, videos and podcasts for you to look at.
We have a fantastic Facebook Group for you to join which has lots of relevant information for you to look at. Now is the time to take a quick break from whatever you are doing, pick up a drink and sit down for 10 minutes to go through the links we have chosen this week.

3. EV Tip: Tend to your Tyres
Sources suggest that over 25% of all vehicles on the road have improperly inflated tires. As with a conventional auto, driving an EV with under-inflated tires will not only increase its energy consumption, but can lead to uneven and/or premature tread wear.
Check the air pressure frequently using a simple tire gauge, as it can vary by an average of one PSI (pound per square inch) with every 10-degree (Fahrenheit) change in air temperature. Have the tires properly inflated according to the PSI recommended by the automaker. This information is usually noted on a sticker that’s affixed to the driver’s-side door frame.
Check out this new Facebook group, Co Charger. It is a new, brilliant means to help more people and companies move to electric vehicles, sooner! Co Charger is a platform that lets you share your charging point with your local community.
