How do I start a charging session or use tap to charge?
There are three ways to start a charging session:
- Tap to charge: With the ChargePoint app installed, you can start a charging session by holding your phone over the reader symbol on the station. Make sure you have the app and are signed in to your account.
iPhone: In the ChargePoint app, go to Menu, select Account and then Manage Cards. Pick "set it up,” add your ChargePoint pass to Apple Wallet and tap your phone on the station to charge.
Android: Enable NFC, turn your phone screen on and tap your phone on the station to charge.
To use tap to charge, you’ll need iPhone 6 or above running iOS 10 or newer, Apple Watch Series 2, Series 1 or 1st generation; or a phone running Android 4.4 or later with NFC.
- Start charging from the app: Choose the station and click the ‘Start Charge’ button.
- Use your ChargePoint card: Just tap your activated ChargePoint card (make sure to activate it) on the card reader symbol on the station.
