Believ, formerly known as Liberty Charge, works in collaboration with businesses and local authorities, as well as the communities they serve, to deliver and operate publicly accessible electric vehicle (EV) charge points in the UK.
Rapidly expanding across UK towns and cities, Believ is evolving to serve residents who rely on public charging by offering the full range of charging speeds. 
Drivers can pay for charging through the Believ app, with an RFID card, or by visiting the website. The network charges a small idle fee during daytime hours to avoid its charge points being blocked by vehicles that are not charging. Believ is part of the Zapmap Live data network.
