The charging stations need to be closer together than half the range. When your destination is just short of a charging point, you don't want to start the return trip by having to move on towards that point but rather take the first one on the route back.

There will be food stores close to those charging points. That means there needs to be a charging station nearby whenever you get hungry if you don't want to lose time nor weight.
