Lighting up Bolt EV's charging port

Rechargeable LED dog collar

When I have to charge my Bolt EV in the dark, such as outdoor charging in the middle of the night, the lack of illumination on the charging port makes it hard to plug the charging cable correctly.

Looking at the dashboard of Bolt EV from the driverโ€™s seat

Up until now, Iโ€™ve been driving the car my parents used to drive, and I had been putting off on buying my own until something that could satiate my fondness for technology would come along. And I finally found that car - Chevrolet Bolt EV, a fully battery powered electric vehicle. I pre-ordered this yearโ€™s version in January, and was expected to get it by late July, but I got lucky and I picked it up today. The car is very responsive, which I like.

Charging the Bolt EV at a highway service area

The car wasnโ€™t fully charged at the time of the handover - it only had enough charge for about 150km of driving. So Iโ€™m charging it at a service area as I write this after driving about 50km. I still have more than 300km to go, so hopefully itโ€™ll get charged enough for me to return home.
