Ratings and Reviews
Cash grabbing app by design
I will start by saying that this is one of the better apps among EVSE companies. However, the app automatically tops itself if your account is under $10. There is NO way to toggle off this feature. To make this worse, it doesn't use a fixed amount but your monthly average to do so. I started to notice when the refill went from $10 to $30. When the next time it took $50, I was very upset and didn't refill my PayPal account in order to stop this abuse. I sent several emails and in one of the few I got answered, it was suggested I use Apple Pay in order to pay as you go. I set up Apple Pay and the app grabbed $70 from my account! I haven't used Chargepoint for about a month, and now I have more than $70 sitting idle in the account that I could have put to better use elsewhere. This is a gross ABUSE of trust and the support has responded by burying their heads in the sand. I will not use this service anymore even if it means having to drive further to charge my car, hence the one star in my review.
Better then you’re leading ev charging app
Honestly I just got my car about 3 weeks ago a did virtually no Reserch before hand on charging ports I now this one one of the first apps I downloaded and I have to say compared to others this one is the best the only downsides I can see to the app/company would be the card cost $5 & some times the map isn’t as accurate as it should be but really what is these days.
Good points of the app house a pretty good map out of charge points you can start and stop charging from this app and it works for the most part pay the $5 and get a card to just in case ( like if you’re ever charging you’re car in a parking garage that’s underground you need at least one bar for it to pick up a connection from you’re phone and that’s why having the card also is crucial!!! Good app and it’s free!
Inaccurate wait list response window, missing features
If you’re on a wait list and get a spot, you get about four minutes to respond. Problem is the countdown doesn’t update properly if you leave the app and come back. I have tapped the accept button with 30 seconds left on the clock, and the app will tell me that I have a spot reserved, but when I get to the charger it turns out that the app was wrong and I had missed my response window.
Additionally, there are a lot of waitlist features that are available through the website that you can’t get to through the app. You can’t create or select a waitlist, you can’t see what chargers you are waitlisted for and how far down the queue you are, and you can’t change your snooze time from 30 minutes to 10 minutes. There are many more examples where the app is deficient in functionality.
