Plan your route.

Stick to rapid chargers when you are driving longer journeys to make sure you get the most charge out of each stop. Find chargers along your route that have amenities so that you can grab snacks and take bathroom breaks while your car fills up.

Top up charging.

Did you know the last 20% of you charge can take almost as long as the first 80%? To avoid wasting time on long journeys do top-up stops rather than trying to fill your electric car.

Check availability.

You can check live availability of charging stations on the Osprey app. Most major mapping platforms including Zap-Map, WattsUp! and Google Maps all have live availability from most networks so you can avoid queuing when you get there.
