EV Charging Apps Australia

Best EV charging apps in Australia vary by state. There are now 19 EV charging providers operating public DC or AC EV chargers in Australia that I have registered with, plus a number of other EV apps to use with my electric vehicle. Some of these EV chargers may also be used with an RFID card, great if you or the charger doesn’t have mobile connectivity. I’ve listed them here RFID Cards

They include:

  • Plugshare – all kinds of EV chargers and their locations
  • AGL app, an app to show and access AGL electric vehicle chargers
  • AmpCharge for charging at the Ampol Ampcharge EV network DC chargers.

  • Chargefox app for location and access to Chargefox EV charging network. Chargefox also provide an RFID card
  • ChargeNGo Australia app for their EV charger location
  • ChargePoint app for location and access to ChargePoint ev charging network. Due to ChargePoint’s withdrawal from Australia recently, ChargePoint chargers in Australia no longer work through the app, you may need their RFID card to release the plug.
  • Elanga app for Elanga EV charging network and Elanga also provide an RFID card .

  • Exploren app for location and access to Exploren electric vehicle charging network. You can also register any RFID card with Exploren by visiting a charger with the app and a RFID card.
  • Get Electric app for location and access to Get Electric electric vehicle charging network
  • Jolt app for location and access to Jolt EV charging network

  • Smart Charge app for location and access to Smart Charge EV charging network. Smart Charge also provide an RFID card
  • Tesla app for my Tesla electric vehicle
  • Virta app for access to the Virta EV charging network. A UK and European company which has now entered Australia with links to some chargers in Qld. They charge a monthly fee whether you use them or not, so I won’t be registering with them unless they are a last resort.

Some of these companies offer RFID cards which are great, as you can keep them in your car and use them to activate the charger without your phone.
