PRICING

Access to the Chargemaster network costs just £7.85 a month.

 

Once a member, 80% of charge points are free to use, however there are some posts that cost just 9p per kWh exc VAT.

 

Some charge points which have a tariff applied to them by the owners are indicated as such on the POLAR website. Some charge point providers may have their own signage or sticker on the charge point.

CABLES

For the majority of on-street charge points, you will require a type 2 menekes cable to successfully charge. There are still on-street unit that utilise the domestic 3-pin plug but these are now far and few between.

 

50 and 43 kW Rapid charge units have tethered cables, but not all vehicles can utilise these chargers.

LIMITATIONS

There are no charge time limitations on most ‘Chargemaster’ charge points,

however these may be indicated when viewing a charge point on their website.
