I am soon going to start my electric vehicle journey & was wondering which EV charging apps people use.
BHPian 1strover recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
I was wondering what EV charging app does everyone here use to locate chargers and see if they are online?
Here’s what GTO had to say about the matter:
There are some app mentions in the main EV charging station review thread, but it’s nice to have a dedicated thread for the apps only.
Here’s what BHPian vvijay had to say about the matter:
PlugShare! On top of all the basic trip planning info, has reviews of all those who have charged in the past which helps us stay updated if the charging system is working or broken.
Not sure if any other apps provide this granular info.
Here’s what BHPian Prasidhi had to say about the matter:
Main apps are:
- Zeon Charging (Most of their chargers are 22/30/50 kW )
- GoEc (Mainly in Kerala)
- Tata Power EZ charge
There is no one app wherein we can use all these chargers. Hopefully very soon inter compatibility and common apps will happen.
I am trying to create an excel of unknown or not much visible charging places so that we can make use of those.
Here’s what BHPian speedmiester had to say about the matter:
I use Plugshare to get a sense of available charging infrastructure. Depending on the requirement and the places I drive to, I install or uninstall EV apps.
Pretty much memorized all the fast chargers across Karnataka.
So far I have used fast chargers of Tata power, Statiq, Relux, Zeon, JioBP and Chargezone.
A single app which can be used across all chargers is most welcome, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon.
Here’s what BHPian rajeshrajan had to say about the matter:
I have used Tata power, Bescom (ev Mitra), Chargengo and Shell recharge so far. Soon will be using Jio BP and Zeon.
I use PlugShare to check out the chargers and pay for them via their own apps. Here is what I have on my phone as of now:
