Find the Closest Charging Station

Look for a text and email from Gig at the beginning of your Electric Gig trip. Click the link to access the web app and find charging stations near you. Once you’re at the station, pull up to an available charger. Select the charger in the app, connect your vehicle, then swipe to start charging. Gig will cover the cost directly. No need to submit a receipt.

Know Your Chargers

Different kinds of chargers will charge your vehicle at different rates. DC fast chargers can take about an hour and a half to get to full charge. Level 2 chargers are good for a slight top-off (they’ll give you about 10 to 20 miles for an hour of charging). Open the charge port, located in front of the driver's door and connect the charger. The car horn will chirp when it's connected correctly. Swipe to start charging. Hang tight, it could take up to 30 seconds to start your charge.

End Your Charging Session

You will see the battery percentage of your charging vehicle on your app. We recommend that you charge up to 80% (though you can charge up to 100% if you'd like to). Unplug the connector and return it to the charger.

You've Charged Your Gig!

You're all done! Your car has been charged, and we've taken care of the payment. No need to send us your receipt.

Drained Battery Fees

Keep your Gigs charged! Gigs low on battery can be a drag and can zap your whole day. Keep the battery above 25% to avoid drained battery fees and ensure that everyone can find a charged Gig.

The charges for a drained battery are:
$100 drained battery fee
$25 processing fee
All applicable taxes
Anything under 25% will incur these charges.

Blocked Charger Fees

As a Gig Member, you should not park your Gig at a charging station (just as you wouldn't at a gas station). This results in inconveniencing other EV drivers needing to charge their vehicles. 

The charges for blocking a charger are:
$100 drained battery fee
$25 processing fee
All applicable taxes
