As long as people update their reports, this app works well. Being able to get notifications on activity is useful.
Best EV app I have, must-have! 5/5
The app is great and having the ratings, pictures and feedback is very useful.
Very thoughtful on having the street view panel.
When sharing pictures you may want to capture the gps AND compass of the image, sometimes EV chargers are hard to find.
A great thing that happened is that I published my home station(I'm willing to share it) and the very next day another user shared theirs not far away.kind of helps see the community.
One thing is I run into tech issues when trying to send emails to home charge station owners. I'd be much happier if the app would just let me write a normal email instead of trying to provide the editor in-app.
Another thing I would like is for Plugshare to allow me to "ask for a charger" somewhere and let other users to up vote the suggestion. I think the data would be useful to commercial entities, hospitals, and other groups to see the growing demand for EV facilities in concrete locations.
Things I'd like to see improved:
- switching between satellite and road map views with less clicks
- ability to "share address to" eg waze or google maps works , but I'd like the reverse as well (look a store in google maps, send the address to Plugshare to see what stations are nearby)
- ability to store the number to report ICEd stations to (if it exists at a location)
- better history tracking of most used stations
- we have 2 EVs in the family and having just "my vehicle" I.e. One EV is not enough.
Keep up the good work!
Useful but not always sure it's up to date 4/5
By K + A
This is a helpful tool, but I'm not sure I can count on it being up to date. It would be great if we all pitch in and give updates on the charging stations' statuses when we charge so everyone knows what kinds of plugs are available, if it costs money to park in the structure (aside from the possible cost of charging your vehicle, etc.). I'll try to do my part to keep the app information up to date.
The Best & invaluable 4/5
Definitely the best ev station app, but I agree trip planner could be better. It was invaluable, however, when a station in Indianapolis had no label & I needed to call & id the station.
Critical for an EV 5/5
Very handy for finding the charging station especially the QC stations that are fewer and sometimes in odd places.
Don't just assume if the site says free charging at sites. Apparently some sites are not free. They need to update their webpages to reflect that tiny information piece.
find a charging station 5/5
By Mr cool nobody
this is a great app for finding charging stations 😁
Very useful 5/5
Ratings give you quite a few options to make sure you can get where you need to go.
Great app. Wouldn't drive anywhere without it.
Works great 5/5
When you need this app, you need it really badly. 5/5
By captain gizmo
When you need this app, you need it really badly. Enough said.
Must have for EV 5/5
I use this app to find charging stations. So far very pleased. It shows more stations than charge point.
The best electric vehicle companion 5/5
I've used this app for six months. It's the best app for tracking, locating and filtering charging stations on the go.
One improvement please. Make trip mapping better.
Best yet hope it improves! 4/5
By Sage Case
I've found this app to be better than any other app out there - including Nissan's own app. I don't understand why some locations don't show up when u do a search even though they meet all criteria. Yet, when you zoom in on the area, they r there! I'm imagining there are locations that I don't know about that should be appearing!!
Invaluable tool for EV drivers 5/5
If this didn't exist, we'd have to create it. Install it now.
It's good to see other drivers check in and report on the status of the charging stations. It makes trip planning much easier.
As for the app itself, it's easy to use and very reliable. I wish it integrated with Waze more closely, but thats a minor quibble.
Great app use it all the time. 5/5
Good for electric car owners
Great app! 4/5
Great map, directions easily viewable like in Google maps, reminds you to check inc accuracy in letting you know if a charger is available
My favorite charge location app 5/5
Easy and intuitive. Has best info on local folks willing to share their home chargers with other EV owners. Been a life saver several times.
Awesome Network 5/5
It just makes Cents!
By rocknroll detective
Great app! Concise info on type of plug and where to find it. Photos and explanations by users of exactly where in the parking garage the plug can be found, so you're not driving around in circles looking for it. Use the app for advance planning or when you end up somewhere unexpected and want to see if a charging station is in range. Made what initially seemed like a daunting task, finding stations, really easy and stress-free.
Super handy app for EV owners 5/5
I've found this app the most helpful overall for navigating all the different networks of chargers out there.
Dece app, but lacks an important planning feature 4/5
The app works well, and for users using it close to home it is excellent. However, when making longer trips it is not possible to filter searches by nearby businesses (e.g. Restaurants or motels/hotels), which makes trip planning more tedious.
Trip guide. 4/5
The app helps me to plan my daily and long distance charging locations.
Best EV app 5/5
Consolidates all the positive features of various EV support apps.
My go-to source for station info! 5/5
I love this app!
So far so good 5/5
Helpful and comprehensive on the go for the networks I frequent. The market is ever changing though, so time will tell.
Easy to use 5/5
Very easy to use app with photos of charge points, usage history, and comments from previous users at a particular location. Thanks, to the dev team!
Stellar app 5/5
Updated...still the best app out there for EV drivers, by a long way. Thank you, PlugShare, for supporting EVs!
This is a must-have app for EV owners. It shows every charging station around *and* includes helpful ratings so you know whether or not you can trust a place will work when you get there.
Mine hasn't crashed even once, so I'm not sure why some others seem to have issues. I have a 5S.
Great app for EV drivers 5/5
A must have. Crowd sourced,, so contribute if you use it.
Very good 5/5
As someone who is interested in purchasing an EV, the ability to filter stations by charging port is useful. I would like to see more information on the power capability in kilowatts and cost of each station.
Very good, but could be better. 4/5
As a dog owner I still struggle to find chargers near hotels which allows pets.
Some travel websites allow me to search for hotels that allow pets, but they don't let me filter by EV charging...
A Must Have App 5/5
As the owner of a newly acquired EV, this app is an absolute must. I don't think the proliferation of electric vehicles would be viable without it. Well done PlugShare, well done--and thank you for such a great resource!
Great app thank you 5/5
By David violin9987
Love this app! Wish it was easier to use for navigation - it's a little complicated now to use it as primary navigation tool and to plan chargers on long trips.
I also wish there was a way to see if a charger is occupied - ChargePoint could automatically report to PlugShare when the charger is in use like t does in other apps.
A must have for EV drivers! 5/5
A great app that helps you plan your trips and connects you with a network of not only chargers but other EV enthusiasts.
Every where I needed to go there has been one that I needed , whether there has been a gas guzzler there that's another problem not this apps... other apps have left me stranded looking for a plug
Essential for the non-Tesla EV, Important for Tesla 5/5
We just drove from Sacramento to San Diego, PlugShare eased the way in our new Chevy Bolt. It still has shortcomings, but nothing else comes close. Info on individual charging stations is uneven, especially what level of charge is offered; planning needs improvement but is workable once you figure out how to use it; and not everybody "checks in" so which stalks are available isn't always correct. But there's no living without it!
Great App 5/5
A good app for EV owners to map resources where to charge their vehicles and also to share their charging stations.
Valuable resource 5/5
I find this app to be the most complete one out there. It is a must have for EV drivers. The interface is friendly and easy to use, and information from the EV stations is easy to update. Having this be crowd sourced makes for the most up to date information.
There are less critical functions (for me) that could be improved; such as the trip planning and navigation function -it is not so easy to use.
Overall, however, I am very satisfied with the app and I use it very frequently, especially when out of town.
Great ap for EV users 5/5
Most comprehensive list of chargers near by sorted by my cars charging equipment. Easy to use.
By Stans S85
This is a great app for anyone that has an electric vehicle. Good advice with pictures. Love it!
Long range, you need this
A must have for when you are wandering very far away from home.
Best app for electric car owners 5/5
This app is so helpful! As a new owner of a plug in car, this app has helped me eliminate any range anxiety and know that I can go anywhere and be able to find a charging station.
Great Apo 5/5
Easy to use. Very accurate. A must have for electric car owners. Been using it for the last 3 years locally and on longer trips to locate both SAE and Chademo chargers for my I3 and my Nissan Leaf. No complaints and it always works and never crashes. Love it.
Vicki's Tesla Model S 5/5
This is an AWESOME app! I love it. I try to check in wherever I charge to help the app.
This is a handy tool for finding EV chargers, especially here in Michigan where the charging infrastructure is still kind of thin. It would be even more useful if more people checked in via the app, or if it got a live feed from other sources, so station availability were more accurate.
Very helpful for this newbie 5/5
By kickflip to nosemanual
Very helpful for this newbie. Thanks for all your work creating and everyone contributing! Better together!!
Best way to find places to charge 5/5
By SoCal Mountain Man
Crowdsourcing is the way to go to build information on publicly accessible charging. And it is very helpful to be able to share personal outlets. This is also a way to build community!
Great App 5/5
By Troy Larsen
Great app for finding charge locations across several suppliers.
New to EV 5/5
Love this app. I am new to EV's and this is my go to.
