cost free charger

Recommended Posts

I would like to have the option to prefer or use only free chargers. 20% of our German chargers are free and it would be nice to be able to mark the cost free chargers in the map and to use them for navigation.
At the moment I have free supercharging, but it will end and I try to still prefere cost free chargers. So far I need to set a filter in Plugchecker, but can't plan there the route.
Perfect would be, to add to add the costs of the roaming cards and to get a cost and time optimized route. But I think, that is a lot more difficult to add move to much to ask at the moment.

Well, if possible, also the opposide option: avoid free chargers. That's because those 20% of our german free chargers are ofter blocked by fossil cars, hybrids or long charging people. All bad if you are on a long term route.

I think the main hitch there is that we don't have knowledge of the cost of many of the chargers.  Perhaps one day we'll implement something like PlugShare's user-editing of our charger listing, but so many of the free chargers aren't associated with any networks, so it would be hard to know the cost accurately.

With respect to free chargers in Germany; it is possible to “prefer” a network of chargers, say for example Aldi-Süd. They will then appear on the map with a star positioned beside them.  When planning the route you can then mark that charger as a Waypoint.
