Download the most accurate EV and Tesla charging station map.

PlugShare is the world’s largest EV driver community. Drivers contribute station reviews and photos to help the EV community make the most informed charging decisions possible.

Drivers can filter the PlugShare map by plug type, including CHAdeMO and SAE/CCS, as well as charging speed, including Level 1, Level 2, and DC Fast Chargers such as Tesla Superchargers. You can also filter by charging provider – the PlugShare map includes detailed station information for every major EV charging network in North America, Europe, and much of the rest of the world, including:

- ChargePoint
- Tesla Destination
- Electrify America
- Supercharger
- EVgo
- SemaConnect
- Shell Recharge
- Renovatio Asset Management
- Chargefox
- Blink
- SemaCharge

You gotta have it, but it could be improved.

Plug Share is basic for electric driving. It's the leader in car charging apps, letting you know at a glance where the nearest charging station is. The future of electric driving depends on an extensive publicly accessible charging infrastructure, and PlugShare is the way to connect to it.
Since I wrote this two years ago, I've noticed a few wrinkles. For example, it's hard to figure out how many miles are between chargers on the map. A mileage indicators would help.
And the trip planning function is difficult to use.
For all that, though, it's the one service that unites all the difference charging providers on one map. I still say you gotta have it.

No user editing ability

Apparently, the ability to edit a charging station’s information has been removed from recent app versions. One of PlugShare’s great strengths WAS its crowd-sourced information by actual charger station users/customers. I tried to update a local station that recently added a Tesla plug, but I cannot find a way to edit. And the app’s Help feature provides inaccurate editing instructions that are apparently no longer available.

Update: The developer has informed me that some station owners request that the users be barred from editing their listings. Good to know. I have three suggestions. First, I’d suggest that PlugShare develop a process to enable and encourage these station owners to keep their listings up to date (e.g. “New Tesla connector available at this station.”). If users can’t edit station info, the owners should make darn sure to update their listings to reflect changes in status and features. Second, the app’s Help function should explain that some stations may not be editable by users. (Currently, the Help function doesn’t mention this, and that’s unnecessarily confusing. Third, station listings should clearly indicate whether stations may or may not be edited by users right on the listing (perhaps in place of the edit button?). My rating stands at 3 Stars. PlugShare remains an essential EV app, but its usefulness has declined as a result of these changes.

Developer Response ,

Please note some locations do not have the ability to be edited as these may be locations where the CPO directly feed us information about the station. Due to this, they have requested that no information be tampered with, which we have agreed to hold, thus the location being "locked" from editing. This usually occurs from major charge point operators. However, there may be times where the information is not up to date and a user wants to add this, but will still be locked as we will receive the data from them. We do thank you for your interest in wanting to keep PlugShare locations up to date and still have many where users can do this, but for some, this will not be possible. We thank you for your understanding and hope you continue enjoy using PlugShare!

The worst EV app and chargers

The whole point of an app connected to a charging network is to simplify the experience of owning an EV. If you want a smooth experience, I recommend EVgo or ChargePoint. Download this app only if you’re an app developer so you can explain how to rebuild this from scratch or if you’re a glutton for frustration. Registering is like running into the walls of a maze. Using the chargers is next to impossible unless you have a fob you can use to connect to the charger. Trying to connect from the app (once I spent 10 minutes trying to figure out how to do it) yielded multiple failures with no explanation of the problem and no way to go back to fix whatever problems arose. You have to go back to the beginning. There are no directions on the chargers themselves, and the 800# led me to a customer service agent who had no idea how to solve my problem. The aggravation of the entire experience made me question why I bought a Leaf. This company made the range anxiety nightmare of every EV driver come to life.
