Battery Rental

I've never heard of renting batteries either, but my guess is that the station would rent you a "loaner" battery while yours was being trickle-charged overnight. That way you could still keep the car running and pick up your freshly recharged battery the next day. Makes sense!

I did not know you could do this.
