To initiate your charge, swipe right on the EVgo app screen. You can also use your EVgo program card or your own credit card to initiate a charge.

Once the charger is activated, your screen will show that the charger is in use.

Now you’re free to run your errands, grab a bite to eat, or enjoy a short break from your day.

Note: You'll need to set up an account with EVgo to initiate a charging session with the app or program card. Most EVgo stations also offer the option of a one-time charging session with credit card payment.

How Far Can You Drive on a 30 Minute Charge?

The EV controls the speed of the charging and once charging begins and the battery warms up, EVs typically draw the maximum flow of kilowatts available from the charger in which the EV's battery is designed to handle. The charger will hold this rate for as long as possible, though it may drop to a more moderate speed if the vehicle tells the charger to slow down so as not to compromise battery life. Once an EV’s battery reaches a certain level of capacity, usually 80%, charging slows significantly.
