I am staying at a B&B on Wednesday who offer charging for my ID.3.

They are asking that I download the Voltshare app so I can monitor the charging.

Have looked at the App but no reviews and no indication of pricing - I presume the host sets the charge.

Seems like a fairly good idea in principle as it saves the host the hassle of working out the price.

Anybody used it?

You need to install their specific wall charger too. Not a bad idea for an Airbnb and the like.

@Cherry would have loved this idea though 🤣

Just returned from a short breaking and used the Voltshare app at the B&B we stayed at: https://www.prettymaidhouse.com. Great place to stay if travelling around Kent.

The charger was simplicity itself to use - scan QR code plug your own cable in and instant charge.The app kept us informed re the state of charge and costs and sent confirmation of payment immediately.

This particular B&B charged £0.54 plus VAT per Kw, charging at 7KwH.Charges displayed before using. Not cheap but the ability to charge whilst sleeping made it worthwhile in my option.

Feels like a useful addition to the App set on my phone.
