Why Shell Recharge is the go-to app for finding charge points and planning your EV journey
We usually suggest you plan any trip around charge point availability, charging speeds, and the amenities at the location. It’s always a bonus if you can grab a coffee or a snack whilst you wait to charge.
Our first piece of advice is to download the Shell Recharge app and order your charge card, if you haven’t already. The best way to prepare is planning your journey through the app. Our app, especially designed for electric car charging points, will provide you with real-time information, so check availability as you get nearer to the charge point. If a green checkmark icon is shown, this means the charge point is available.
The Route Planner app feature can minimise range anxiety and ensure you don't run out of battery during your journey. It will use your EVs battery data to plan a route, including the best places to stop and charge. You can apply filters too, so if you wish to use a certain speed or you wish to charge at Shell so you can take advantage of the services, make sure to add that to the criteria. You can then easily export this journey to your preferred map app with just a few clicks. Never check whilst driving, make sure to pull over if you don’t have a passenger at hand to check. You can also star your favourite or most convenient charge points, for even easier journey planning.
