Xatori, maker of "innovative" software for electric vehicles, is offering a special deal related to its flagship app, PlugShare. Xatori and peer-to-peer firm Getaround have teamed up to reward select PlugShare users $50 for sharing their plug-in vehicles on Getaround's marketplace.

The PlugShare app allows iPhone, iPad, iPod and Android users to share "outlets." Members can share high-speed J1772 plugs or standard 120-volt outlets. PlugShare includes an up-to-date listing of public charging stations and is available free of charge by clicking here.

Getaround is a peer-to-peer-based car-service where plug-in vehicle owners agree to put their wheels up for rent on an hourly, daily or even a weekly basis. The vehicle owners set the rates and Getaround pairs up "buyers" with "sellers." To become a Getaround member, click here.

PlugShare and Getaround announced the incentive in celebration of National Plug In Day last Sunday. The day may have been celebrated coast-to-coast, but the communities eligible to get the $50 bonus are limited to the San Francisco Bay Area and metropolitan San Diego.

I'm reporting this comment as:

Reported comments and users are reviewed by Autoblog staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week to determine whether they violate Community Guideline. Accounts are penalized for Community Guidelines violations and serious or repeated violations can lead to account termination.

      What do you do while charging at someone's house? Probably go about your business. You asked to charge there because it was convenient to the friend you're visiting in the neighborhood, or there's a store nearby you are going to. Chances are an hour or so will give the boost needed. But it is true, EV drivers are friendly sorts. I'll be sometimes you get a cup of coffee and gain a friend.

      Still wondering what the etiquette is when someone charges at your house?? Do they sit in the car... for 4-8 hours? Do they come in and watch TV? It seems incredibly awkward.
