Tip
When you create your account, you provide payment info so you’ll be ready to charge wherever you go. The first time you use a station with a fee, we’ll charge you $10 and keep it as a balance on your account. If you only use free stations, you’ll never be charged.
 
 
Step 5
You can start a charge anytime with your phone. Request a ChargePoint card during signup if you’d like one as a backup.
