Charging your electric vehicle (EV) at home will often be the cheapest option. However, there is a rapidly growing network of public charge points available for those without a home charge point, or when you are out and about. If you're looking for a public charge point, there are a few different ways to find one.

There are a number of websites and apps that can help you find public charging points. Some popular options include:

These websites and apps allow you to search for charge points by location, type, and availability. They often include information about the cost of charging, so you can compare prices before you plug in.

Once you've found a public charging point, you'll need to follow the instructions on the sign or app to start charging your EV. In most cases, you'll need to register with the charging point operator before you can start charging.

Charging at home versus public charging

Charging at home will often be the cheapest option. However, there are a few benefits to using public charging points. For example, public charging points can be more convenient if you're on a long journey. They can also be a good option if you don't have access to a charging point at home. Public charge points can be much faster than any system you could install at home.

Here are some additional tips for finding an EV charge point:

  • Plan your route ahead of time. This will help you identify public charging points along your way.
  • Check the availability of charge points before you set off. This will help you avoid disappointment if the charge point you're planning to use is already in use.
  • Consider the type of charger you need. Not all charge points are created equal. Some are faster than others, and some are only compatible with certain types of electric vehicles.
  • Be prepared to pay. In most cases, you'll need to pay to use a public charging point. The cost will vary depending on the operator and the type of charger.
