“The future is Near, NEXTCHARGE is here” Available for You.

Nobody ever said that going Electric Vehicle would be easy. But an app, you may rely on in EV situations, makes it easier.
From the very first click of your smart phone icon 'NEXTCHARGE' you will be transported to an easy-to-use ‘charging station finder’

The clean, readable interface of NEXTCHARGE will make reading and mapping station locations simple. You will notice your app is displayed in 2 views: map or list. This gives you a choice.

Using ‘map mode’ you can easily find stations within your current area. Zoom-out for more charging station locations. Our grid mapping system decreases your wait time, for stations to load, and ensures mapped stations won’t be missed.

Using ‘list mode’ you will see that the description and status of the station are neatly displayed. Along with some basic information: time, distance (mi. or Km), and plug types with their corresponding photo.

Selecting a station from the list or a plug icon from the map ultimately yields the same results.
A station, selected from the list, displays all of the charging stations provided information.
A plug icon, selected from the map, will display a description box below. Select by touching.

Information Includes:
● Provider ● Address ● km/mi ● Logo

Clicking the blue information box may display more:
● Access ● Plug Type ● Energy ● Price ● Contact

Info box can be dropped or closed by tapping.

Icons provide you access to add photos of a charging station, comment or review. You are able to share station information using the ‘networking’ icon.

The red icon on the left allows for a direct request to delete or update a station.

Back to map vs list – yield same results:
By clicking any listed station you will be provided with the same information.

The top right icon, once opened, displays all the features of NEXTCHARGE: Settings, basic & contact information.

Some important features for Electric Vehicle drivers are displayed in an easy to use ‘button’ format.

▷ Add Stations enables users to help develop the always growing network of electric charging stations. You may: add or request removal of a station and change or update information. *To maintain our quality of service, all data is approved before changes are made.*
▷ Itinerary is an absolutely brilliant aspect for any EV driver. You may plan to take a long journey; mapping ahead of time to avoid any charging issues. Allows personalization for your trip.

▷ Nearest stations is a navigated map of your surrounding locations. May be zoomed in or out for more stations
▷ Going back to “Search” allows you to specify an exact location and if it does not exist on our map feel free to add a station.

*Real Time Status* is a quick and easy way to see the status of any station. It makes finding your NEXTCHARGE quick and easy. Clicking the “info” button will show you the colour coded legend of the mapped plugs.

Years later, same critique still apply. Original review: It's useful, but it really sucks that it totally ignores the fact that there exist electric vehicles not on its preprogrammed list, like Zeros. Zero, btw, is growing like crazy, they are up to where they can build a motorcycle every 28 minutes and are supplying many police forces and military as well. I had to lie to it, tell it I had another vehicle. Also there does not seem to be a way to change your vehicle. I selected iMiev and 8kwh to try to simulate my Zero, conservatively, and now it seems stuck. I use half the energy per mile as a car, so i guess I should choose a car and double my battery? This could be a great app, but right now it feels unfinished and clunky. Also, "+" to change settings on an existing itinerary is very confusing. And what's up with "you have 8 itineraries left"? I haven't even gotten one itinerary resolved yet. And what's the price to make more itineraries? I don't want to spend time learning this app only to find out it's expensive to use going forward.

I've been traveling through France, Spain and Italy with a plug in hybrid. France I could get some apps to work depending on the region and municipality. Spain I could never use any local chargers due to them being restricted to locals. Italy has been a dream! Nextcharge has allowed me to use chargers in every town I've been too. Simply paid via PayPal or credit card and started charging. One app one system that works. Highly recommended!! Wish it was as easy and seamless across Europe.
