Public charging made simple
Charging your electric car used to mean a plethora of different cards and apps, with usage spread across different emails, texts and bills. Not anymore.
We’re busy creating a super-slick, super-easy charging experience with Octopus Electroverse: one card and app, thousands of chargers, all in one place. And all with zero added costs or on-going fees.
Plus if you’re an Octopus Energy home electricity customer, your bills can automatically be linked for the ultimate simplicity.
One card to rule them all.
Our Electrocard card gives you the power to charge with one simple tap, across the UK & beyond.
We'll post you a free, personalised card when you sign up.
Frequently asked questions
How much does charging on Electroverse cost?
Octopus Electroverse doesn't charge any extra on top of the network providers - we simply pass through the normal cost of using the charger, which we receive from the relevant Charge Point Operator. And in some cases, we actually offer a discounted rate.
The latest pricing for each network and each specific charging point is displayed in the Electroverse app.
Good to know: Octopus Electroverse doesn't charge any on-going or transaction fees.
How do I use Electroverse?
Once you've signed up we'll pop an Electrocard in the post to you. With the card, you're able to start a charge on any Octopus Electroverse compatible charger just by tapping.
You can find all compatible locations and a wealth of useful charger information by downloading the Electroverse app, and by exploring our web map.
You can also manage your account, payment details, Electrocards and more through the app.
We're in the process of rolling out in-app (i.e. digital) charging across partner chargepoints too - another reason to check out the Electroverse app!
Do I have to be with Octopus Energy for my home energy supply?
No! We want charging to be as simple as possible for every EV driver in the UK, whether you're with Octopus Energy for your home energy supply or not.
If you are on supply with us at home, any charges on Octopus Electroverse partner networks will be added to your Octopus home energy bill (though you can choose to pay with a separate card if you prefer, too).
If you're not on supply with us, we'll ask you to add your preferred payment card and send you a single bill for your public charging only.
Good to know: there are no on-going charges or transactions fees when using Electroverse. We will only ever take payment for public charging usage.
