The Instavolt App runs alongside our contactless payment option and provides another simple way to access our award winning DC Rapid Electric Vehicle charging network. In addition to the functional benefits the App provides (i.e. location mapping, navigation and VAT receipts), customers using our EV charging App are given exclusive access to the following rewards programs, which are not available to those using our contactless payment option.
1. Membership to the ‘Volts’ reward program, where customers can earn Volts for every kWh they use on the InstaVolt network, which can then be exchanged for charging credits.
2. Access to the ‘Invite and Earn' promotion which allows customers to earn charging credits just by referring our services to others.
3. Receive alerts to partner promotions when you start a charge at locations where one of our partners is running a special offer.
4. The amenities our locations have to offer are displayed as a collection of easily recognised icons representing the types of amenity available e.g. Cafe, Restaurant, Toilets etc.
We are dedicated to constantly making improvements to your charging experience. The new version aims to improve the performance and stability and to enhance the user experiences. Some of the key improvements in the new release are:
1. In the “Find a Charger” option, the map now displays the number of available charge stations and the total number of charger stations installed below each location icon.
2. When adding your EV to your account the following data is automatically entered Battery Capacity, Charge Port Type and Vehicle Consumption.
3. On the station detail page the InstaVolt icon will be displayed next to the connector that is associated to your configured EV.

Ratings and Reviews
For one we have here a charge app that is pretty well designed and reliable. That’s not something g you can say for most other charge apps.
I wish it would display your actual charge speed. It is often difficult to read the display on the charger in bright sun. In the cold you have to get out to read the speed of charge. It’s so small it’s hard to read, even when close up.
Some transparency would be great so please make it easier for us to make charging decisions based on charging speed.
I still think you guys charge too much for your electricity but at least it’s better than your competitor.
Keep on imporoving your service and you guys will be out and out winners.
Had a few problems - now resolved
I couldn’t confirm payment for the Verified by Visa page as the app was unresponsive.
That meant payment could not be confirmed.
The only way to exit was to close the App.
Following contact by the developer/InstaVolt the issue was resolved on the web page and the app will be updated.
Great response by the support team, and so now rate 5* - because of the quality of support.
Developer Response ,
Apologies for the issues you are having this only happens with certain banks. As a work around please visit our driver portal at https://driver.emsp.instavolt.co.uk/ to add your card details. Once added you will be able to use the App as normal. We are currently working on a fix for this issue, which should be released soon.
I was charging at an Instavolt station today and discovered they now have an app !! It’s so easy to use and has made my charging experience even better than before !
It seems like Instavolt have put a lot of work into developing this app and it shows !!
