For Electric Vehicle drivers everywhere...

Have you ever arrived at a charger with a few miles left and somebody's already occupying it? How do you know if they'll be back in 2 minutes or 2 days?

It's simple - just put their Number Plate into NeedToCharge and, if they're also a user, they'll get a notification telling them you're patiently waiting. They can then respond to let you know when the charger will be free.

You don't have to have an account to send a charging request - just download the app and enter their number plate, or send a request from

If you're a community that share a charger, in your office carpark or residential community for example, why not all sign up so you can let each other know when you need to charge?

- Supports multiple vehicles per user
- Get alerted by email, push notification or both
- Your personal details stay personal - no need to share your email address or phone number
- Leave a note on your dash to tell others needing a charge to go to - they can enter your number plate there without even having to download the app!
- It's completely free for all, and none of those pesky ads

As the number of Electric Vehicles on the roads increase, so do the odds of a charger being blocked, so share the love and let other drivers know - it's free!

Great idea - share it around!

This is such a great app, and it gets better the more people that use it, so tell your friends!

Great Idea!!!

What a great, easy to use app this is. Why haven’t the charging network providers thought to do this?
