Charging Apps for EVs in Australia

Categorised as EV Charging, EV Charging Apps, General

Best EV charging apps in Australia vary by state. There are now 23 EV charging providers operating public DC or AC EV chargers in Australia that I know of, 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 below too.

They include:
App to Locate All Chargers
Plugshare App – locations of all kinds of EV charging network chargers  and their details.

  23. 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.

Other Apps

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.

For many of the AC chargers, you will need to take your own Type 2 22kW cable, available from Tesla or most ev charging suppliers.
