    Other EV Networking

    Including some with only a few chargers, some startup networks and some apps which seem to focus on listing other networks’ chargers.

Other Apps

  • Tesla Owners Club of Australia Use the Member Jungle app which has some tips about EV charging and other info https://www.teslaowners.org.au/
  • ABRP A Better Routeplanner app, in Apple or Android. I don’t use this, but it may help those people who like to plan their long trips


RFID Cards
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.

Also, Autel, EVX, Kingman EVC and SolarHub don’t have their own card but allow you to add your own RFID card in their app.

Type 2 Cable
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.

Reserve or Book an EV Charger
Some EV charging networks allow you to reserve a charger using their app. Currently I notice Exploren offer a “Reserve” feature in their app.
