Denver aviation manager Kim Day says travelers driving electric vehicles to the airport have been plugging them in to existing electrical outlets. She says the new charging stations will be more convenient, safer and designed to work specifically with electric and plug-in vehicles.

The Denver Post reports Waukegan-based Telefonix Inc. is providing the stations, listed at $1,495 apiece, to the airport for free.

The airport says the stations can provide a full charge to most plug-in vehicles in about eight hours.
