"You'll want to save space on your home screen for the VOOL app."
- The VOOL team
Your home screen is precious real estate on your smartphone. Only the most valuable apps deserve such a prime location. What's so special about the VOOL App? How dare we call it the best EV charging app on the market?
Let's run through why the VOOL App belongs next to your investing and money-making apps.
Yes, at its core, it’s 'just' an EV charging app. But it’s much more than an on/off remote for your EV charging. It does a lot more than that.
We got tired of dumb apps on smartphones. The VOOL App tracks daily market electricity prices and automatically manages when your car charges to get you the cheapest rate.
No matter what charger you own, the VOOL App ensures that you’re actually charging. If you’re plugged in for the night, there’s no reason you should have a semi-charged EV in the morning. The app will notify you if there’s an issue with the session.
Plug in your car and charge on your terms. Only charge when it’s cheapest or when it’s most convenient. It’s up to you. Change of plans and need the car sooner? Update the session type through the app with just a few taps .
The VOOL App is built to play nice with others. No matter if you have a VOOL Charger or another EV charger that supports OCPP 1.6. We’re ready for OCPP 2.0 as well.
We’re pretty proud of the growing list of car manufacturers the VOOL App supports.
Download the VOOL App from the App Store or Google Play
It’s a one-time process for any car or charger you want to manage with the app.
To add your EV, you’ll need the login information that you use to access the manufacturer’s charging app. You’ll only need to do this once, and it’ll level up your charging experience to 100% — every time. We protect all your information in accordance with GDPR.
To charge your EV reliably and at the best rates, we’ll need to know what kind of electricity contract you have. Just add the charger and unlock the ability to manage the charging session remotely. Let us know through the app if you’re using variable market rates for electricity or if you’re on a fixed contract with your power company.
With market rates, the VOOL App can get to work saving you money by charging only at rates that you’re comfortable with.
Syncing the VOOL Charger with our mobile app isn’t necessary if you have one of the many makes and models we support. You’re free to use the whatever smart charging app that connects with your car. But if you want the best of the best EV charging apps, choose VOOL.
