I see the theory and I (mostly) agree with it.

The problem I have is, where the hell am I going to plug it?

Also, if I found the place (mainly Girona where we have have a house in the suburbs, not in Barcelona where we live in a flat with a shared underground car park) what if I left it charging more than it should, will doing that consistently destroy the batteries or the car disconnects itself once it is fully charged?
