To discover how much it will cost to charge an EV from an InCharge charge point, head to Zap-Map’s Public Charging Calculator. This allows you to select any new or used plug-in vehicle, and tailor elements – such as electricity cost and charge required – for personalised results.
InCharge network access
Access to the InCharge network is made via the network’s RFID card or tag, or smartphone app. Payment is then taken from a credit or debit card linked to the customer’s account after the charging session is complete.
Finding InCharge points on Zap-Map
All InCharge points can be found on Zap-Map by using the network filter. This can be used on the desktop and mobile apps, and displays only those points operated by InCharge.
Charging types and speeds can be filtered too, showing only those points that are compatible with users’ cars.
Accessing points on other networks
InCharge’s points are currently only accessible by network customers. Likewise, customers of other networks are not able to use InCharge points without first either creating an account with the network, or paying the pay-as-you-go fee.
Vattenfall intends to sign roaming agreements with other networks though, allowing members of those networks to use InCharge points and vice versa. As these agreements get signed, we shall update this section to reflect the developments.
Vattenfall is Sweden’s state-owned utility supplier, and provides a considerable amount of wind-generated electricity to the UK. InCharge has been designed for EV drivers to easily charge their cars, with simple access requirements reducing hassle.
There are currently more than 20 InCharge charge points on Zap-Map, with over 40 connectors available for network customers.
