PlugShare is Recargo’s free app for iOS, Android, and web, allowing users to find charging stations, leave reviews, and connect with other plug-in vehicle owners. It has the most accurate and complete public charging map worldwide, with stations from every major network in North America, Europe, and throughout much of the globe.
PlugShare is also home to the largest community of EV drivers in the world. Every day, drivers add more station locations, constantly making the app more comprehensive, powerful and accurate. From within the app, users check-in when they charge, sharing tips, comments, and photos of their charging experiences.
Thousands of drivers also list their personal home charging stations for public use on PlugShare, helping to fill the gaps in the charging infrastructure. These drivers have complete control over the times and terms of their station’s availability, how other members can contact them, and what personal information is displayed.
