It took a while for people to get on board with the idea of driving electric vehicles, especially here in the UK. But with more than a million EVs on UK roads, it seems that we've finally accepted that driving a battery-powered car is totally acceptable and actually pretty great.
You can't use PlugShare without creating an account, but it only takes a few seconds and you can start using the app to find EV charging stations immediately. Once you load up the app, you'll be met with a map which displays all of the EV charging stations that the app can find. If you click on one of the charging stations then you'll be given some information about the station, such as what connection it has and when it opens and closes. Another interesting feature is the 'check-in' feature, which allows you to check-in at charging stations once you've used it. You'll also be able to see other users which have checked in at stations, which is quite useful as you can see what car they used and when they charged their car there. If you want, you can actually message these users to see what their experience was like at the EV charging station. It's an interesting but useful app, learn more and download it from the App Store here and the Google Play Store here.
