Electric vehicle charging stations:

Convenient, affordable and easy to use.

A Primer to Public Charging.

Charge while shop, play or work.

There are public chargers everywhere – at grocery stores, restaurants, parks, and maybe even at your place of work. Being able to charge up while doing your shopping? Now that’s a time saver!

Bye-bye range anxiety.

Most drivers find that their electric vehicle has all the range they need by charging up at home overnight and waking up at 100%. After all, the average U.S. commute is only 40 miles per day. But if you do rack up the miles, know that there's likely a public charger along your route.

Say yes to road trips.

You'll find charging stations at rest stops and businesses right off the major interstates around the Kansas and Missouri region. Using a fast charger, you can add enough range to get to your next destination in the time it takes to stretch your legs.

What's your public charging style?

Are you a hummingbird that flits about town and tops off your battery as you go? Or are you more slow-drip, happy to gradually charge while reading at a coffee shop? Perhaps you're a bit more high-speed, and want your car recharged quickly so you can go farther faster. Whatever your charging style, public chargers will get you there.

    Step 5: Connect to your car’s charging port.

    Plug the larger end into your vehicle’s inlet charging port. In most EVs, this is a J1772 connector, a standard design specified by the Society of Automotive Engineers. These connectors include safety features such as an interlocking device that prevents vehicle startup while connected.

  • Electric vehicle charging indicator light

    Step 6: Beep, beep, blink.

    Your indicator light blinks to verify the vehicle is charging. You’ll get up to five miles of range per hour of charging. Like your phone, you can charge overnight while you sleep. The next day, just unplug, put away the cord, and drive away.
