What is Supercharge My EV?
Supercharge My EV is a handy plugin for ChatGPT4 that helps EV drivers find available superchargers for non-Tesla vehicles. This plugin integrates directly with ChatGPT4 to provide supercharger location data and availability information.
How Does the Plugin Work?
The Supercharge My EV plugin connects to a real-time database of supercharger locations and occupancy information. When you ask ChatGPT4 to find available superchargers near a specific location, the plugin will check the database and return a list of stations with available chargers within a set radius.
Key features of the plugin include:
- Real-time occupancy data for supercharger locations
- Ability to search by location name, address, city, or zip code
- Customizable search radius
- Details on each station including number of chargers, types of chargers, pricing, and amenities
By integrating this data directly into ChatGPT4, EV drivers can quickly and easily locate charging options on the go.
Why Use This Plugin?
The Supercharge My EV plugin solves a common pain point for non-Tesla EV owners – finding available rapid charging stations on long trips or in unfamiliar areas. Unlike Tesla’s network, most third-party supercharger networks do not provide real-time occupancy information in their apps. This plugin fills that gap by enabling ChatGPT4 to access the latest charging availability data.
Key benefits include:
- Avoid wasted time driving to occupied stations
- Reduce charging anxiety on road trips
- Discover new charging locations more efficiently
For non-Tesla EV drivers, this plugin provides vital trip planning and on-the-go charging assistance.

- Unfamiliar cities – Quickly locate stations with open chargers near your destination
- Charging on-the-go – Find available stations along your current route to minimize downtime
