ChargePoint Android App For Electric Vehicle Owners

CAMPBELL, Calif.– Coulomb has ported its ChargePoint smartphone app to Android. Released earlier this year for Blackberry and iPhone, the app provides current charging station status, location information, navigation, and reservations.

The ChargePoint mobile app can locate stations near a given address, get directions, and start and stop a charging session. As well, the app allows drivers to make or cancel reservations at ChargePoint stations.

“We are seeing more than 20 thousand vehicle charging sessions a month on the ChargePoint Network and, on average, drivers remain plugged in for an average of eight hours a session,” said Columb’s founder Richard Lowenthal. “The ChargePoint app provides essential information and control for EV drivers needing to charge. Since EV charging stations are typically busy for hours, EV drivers need an app that tells them which stations are currently available to them. I have driven EVs for more than a decade and know firsthand what it means to arrive at stations that are already use or broken. That doesn’t happen on ChargePoint.”
