To discover how much it will cost to charge an EV from an Osprey 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.
Osprey network access
Access to the Osprey network can be made via Zap-Pay, with payment through a credit or debit card. EV drivers will also be able to track live status when away from the vehicle, charging history, and access VAT receipts across networks, ensuring control and saving time. Alternatively, a contactless credit or debit card or the Osprey app can be used to access and pay for charging.
Finding Osprey points on Zap-MapAll Osprey 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 Osprey.
Charging types and speeds can be filtered too, showing only those points that are compatible with users’ cars.
Osprey is the launch partner for Zap-Pay, Zap-Map’s simple payment service available through the Zap-Map app. The British company has a UK-wide network of rapid charge points across the country, located at strategically important locations such as city centres and near major trunk roads.
The network was set-up and operated as Engenie until October 2020, when it rebranded for greater clarity within the EV charging network.
