Plug, pay, charge, and go.

It’s never been easier to charge your electric vehicle.

Electrify America stations offer CCS, CHAdeMO, and J1772™ connectors. This means that almost every EV model on the road today can charge with us.

When using an Electrify America station, look for the green label for CCS or the blue label for CHAdeMO. The maximum available power level is displayed directly below the connectors, ranging from 50kW up to 350kW. If your EV isn’t capable of charging at the maximum power level, our chargers will automatically give you the fastest charge your car can handle. Just plug in and the charger display screen will tell you all you need to know and help manage the charging session.

The dual charging cables are not designed to charge two vehicles at the same time, but rather to easily reach your car’s charging port—no matter where it’s located. If either connector is in use, look for a different open charger. Most Electrify America locations will have four or more chargers at a station.

Paying for a charge

Charging with us is easy. You can pay at the “pump,” so to speak, by just inserting your credit or debit card. We accept Visa and Mastercard.

The touchscreen display on the Electrify America charger will prompt you for payment as soon as the connector is plugged into your car. You’ll be able to see the cost per minute on the screen. Learn more about our rates.

In the future, we’ll be adding more digital payment methods, including the Electrify America mobile app.

Check your charging progress

You can get notifications about your charging status by providing your mobile phone number when prompted on the charging station screen. You’ll get a text notification at the start of your session, updates on your charging status, a notification when your session is complete, and a receipt after you’ve unplugged.1 That way, you can leave your car during the session and know when you need to get back. In the future, you’ll be able to access these capabilities and more through our Electrify America mobile app—coming soon.

Get back on the road

When your vehicle is fully charged, it will automatically stop charging.2 You’ll get a notification, either by text or on the charger screen, to let you know that the session is done. Then it’s time to unplug and move out of the parking spot in front of the charger to make room for another EV. If your vehicle is not moved after ten minutes from the completion of your charge, an idle fee of $0.40 per minute will be added to your total session bill. We do this to ensure that more people have a chance to charge.
