OUR COMMUNITY

Bookmycharge is the world's first community dedicated to bookable EV charging at private chargepoints owned by other EV drivers and by destinations like B&Bs, pubs and hotels. We provide the reassurance and reliability of booked charging sessions within a friendly community of users.

Our community began with the aim of sharing home chargepoints with fellow EV pioneers. We saw this as a way to mobilise the domestic chargepoint network, which will always be the largest network in the country, while public charging points are still few and far between in much of the UK.

We have now evolved the community to enable businesses with longer dwell time, private chargepoints on their premises to list them on the platform.

Longer dwell-time chargepoints work at 220-240 volts, typically at either 16-amps or 32-amps. A 16-amp chargepoint will typically charge an electric car from flat to full in around 6 hours. A 32-amp chargepoint can charge an electric car from flat to full in around 3½ hours, although not all electric cars are capable of charging up that quickly.

As EV owners get to hear about Bookmycharge, the number of charging locations on here will increase, but please be patient if you can’t find a chargepoint in an area you need one, as we are new and it will take a while for word to spread. We rely on our Bookmycharge community to offer help in the spirit of spreading the use of EVs around the UK, and the planet.
