The charging station at Hendrick Honda Bradenton’s dealership is run through ChargePoint. With the world’s largest EV charging network, we bet you’ve used their services before.
But if not, don’t worry! It’s easy to use our charging station.
First, you’ll need to download the free ChargePoint app. This will allow you to find nearby charging stations and pay for using them. The ChargePoint station at Hendrick Honda Bradenton is free to use for Hendrick Honda Bradenton customers! See the details in the app for fees for non-customers.
How to Use a ChargePoint Station
If you haven’t used a ChargePoint charging station before, it can be a little tricky. Here are the steps to using these stations according to ChargePoint’s website:
- Step 1: Tap In – Tap your phone (with the app signed in to your account) or ChargePoint card on the station to unlock the charging connector. Or, tap the orange “Start Charge” button on the station info page in the app.
- Step 2: Lift the Connector – Push the button on the connector to lift it out of the holster.
- Step 3: Plug In (and Check In) – Plug the connector into your EV (and hit the blue button to start charging, for fast charging). Check your EV to make sure you’re charging (there are often indicator lights on the dashboard).
- Step 4: Do Your Thing – Relax and go about your day. We’ll send you an update when your car is done charging.
- Step 5: Tap Out – When you get back to your EV, tap your phone or card (and push the blue button, for fast charging) to end your session. The station will show you how much it cost and ChargePoint will send you a receipt. Don’t forget to unplug the connector and put it back in the holster. Then, drive away happier in your fully charged EV.
