Need to charge and someone’s currently plugged in?

Enter their Number Plate here to let them know


This allows the other driver to respond, but they won't see your address.



How does it work?

Sign up once to NeedToCharge, and plug in at a charger as normal

If a fellow EV driver needs to charge, they can enter your Number Plate at

You’ll receive a notification, and you can respond to let them know when the charger will be free

Display your window disc

Let people know they can send you a charge request by displaying your window disc – you can download them here.
