I've started to see charging stations at Walgreens. Will these types of chargers work on a Cmax? Of course I doubt I could stand 2 1/2 hours in a Walgreens for a 16 mile charge but I am curious.

Always had them here in my area, but I never ever charged there as they charge 49 cents a kwh to use them.  Instead they should install solar panels on top of walgreens (like the Big-Y supermarkets here) and offer charging for free.  Not only will the panels pay for themselves in a few years, but they will get more customers.  I do alot of my shopping at the big-y and I never go to Walgreens.  EV drivers go where the chargers are for business.

Use plugshare.com to check out charger compatibilities; they list all of the different plugs available at all the stations they've heard about.

 This is not a workable solution to the problem. They might as well not even bother. I'm not going to pay for 10 minutes worth of charge. Would I shop at Walgreens as opposed to the Drug store across the street if I could plug in while there? Yeah, I would. Would I make my choice of restaurants based upon whether I could plug in? Yes I would. 

 

 I'm not sure what an hours worth of charge cost the restaurant. I'm sure it varies...........75 cents? That's less expensive than a buy one get one half price coupon.

In general, if it can plug in, it'll work.  The onboard electronics only pull as much juice as the car can handle.

 

The (some?) ChargePoint pedestals will display the current draw; my Energi is generally pulling half as much as the Tesla or Volt next to it.

If you can physically plug it in, it's compatible.  If it's free, there's no reason not to if you're there anyway.

 

The Walgreens here do not have chargers, free or otherwise.
