I would like to use your network but I have not yet signed up for a plan – can I still charge at an EVgo station?

Although we encourage EV drivers to become members, either via our Pay As You Go plan, our EVgo Membership plan, or our EVgo Plus with reduced charging rates, customers can also pay for an individual charging session with a credit card.

How do I stop a charge and disconnect?

It is very simple to stop the charge and disconnect from our chargers. You can stop the DC fast charge via the screen on the charger by hitting the stop button. Also, the DC fast charger will automatically stop after a 30-60 minute session has been reached or your car is at full battery capacity. Our Level 2 chargers will stop if you remove the connector from your car or your battery has reached full capacity.

If you are having trouble stopping a charge or disconnecting from the charger and need help, call the EVgo Charging Crew for assistance 24/7 at (877) 494-3833.

The connector is stuck in my car.

If you want to disconnect the connector, first ensure that charging is stopped via the charger screen. If you cannot disconnect the connector, then you can try the following tips:

The car needs to release the connector. If this is not done automatically, you can use the remote of your car keys to lock and unlock the car doors. In most cases, this will release the connector.
It could be that the connector can not be unlocked due to the weight of the cable that blocks the unlock mechanism. In that case, it helps to support the cable when you unlock the connector with your car keys.
If you cannot disconnect the connector, call the EVgo Charging Crew for 24/7 assistance at (877) 494-3833.
