One of the great things about owning a Tesla is that you have a simple and easy charging experience when you’re on the road. A Supercharger is a Supercharger, whether you’re heading down I-95 to Florida or taking I-10 across the desert to California. Pity the poor owners of ordinary EVs, who have to contend with a patchwork of different charging networks, each requiring their own user accounts and RFID cards. If that doesn’t elicit any sympathy, pity the Tesla owner who occasionally needs to use a non-Tesla charger, only to find that it requires a card from some network they’ve never heard of.

Someday in the near future, most or all of these networks will be linked together, just as cell phone networks are today, and EV drivers will be able to top up at any public charger, using a single card (or none) and a single account. That day recently drew a whole lot closer, as ChargePoint and FLO, two of the largest charging networks in the US and Canada, respectively, formed a roaming partnership designed to create a seamless charging experience across North America.

Much as mobile phone roaming enables user-transparent connections between cell networks, ChargePoint and FLO members can now access public chargers on both networks with no need to register for multiple accounts.
