Frequently asked questions about charging on the go

Yes you can. The bp pulse network has charging points across the UK. Check out our live map to find your nearest available bp pulse7, bp pulse50 and bp pulse150 points and simply plug. pulse. play.

In short, it depends.

The speed of charging is determined by the power of the charge points (7kW, 50kW or 150kW), but in principle, the more powerful the charging point, the shorter the charging time. Charging time will also depend on your vehicle’s battery size and your vehicle’s charging capacity.

With a bp pulse subscription you can enjoy our best value on the go tariffs to charge on the bp pulse network, starting from £0.44/kWh to use our AC7kW charging points, £0.63/kWh to use our AC43kW or DC50kW charging points, or £0.69/kWh to use our DC150kW charging points and above.

Rates are £0.83/kWh for DC150kW charging points and above, £0.77/kWh for AC43kW and DC50kW charging points, or £0.59/kWh for AC 7kW charging points.

Sometimes. If you’re using one of our standard or fast charge points (7kW) then you will need to take your own Type 2 charging cable with you. The cable will lock into place once you start your charge, so it can’t be removed while you’re away. You’ll be able to release it once you have stopped your charge.

You won’t need it if you’re using one of our bp pulse50 (50kW) or bp pulse150 (150kW) charge points.

When you’ve safely arrived at the bp pulse charging point you wish to use, connect your vehicle using your Type 2 charging cable, or the tethered cable provided. 

Next, use the bp pulse app to start your charge. 

Via Charge: Enter the charge point ID and click ‘Start Charge’. 

Via Live Map: Find your charge point on the map, select it and click ‘Start Charge’. 

You can also find a charge point by clicking ‘List’ on the map. 

On our 3-7kW chargers, the lights next to the charging socket will turn green to indicate a successful connection. 

On our 50kW+ chargers, the screen will show you the status of the charge. 

When you’ve finished charging, click ‘Stop Charge’ in the app. It might take a couple of seconds for your cable to release. 

Please don’t press the red emergency stop button unless there is a real emergency – this will disable the unit until an engineer is able to come to the charge point. 

When you’ve safely arrived at the charging point you wish to use, connect your vehicle using your Type 2 charging cable or the tethered cable provided. 

Tap your bp pulse access card on the target which will start the charge.

For our 50kW+ chargers, you might need to select which type of cable you want to use before tapping your access card on the target. 

When you’ve finished charging, tap your access card on the target and disconnect your cable.

Please don’t press the red emergency stop button unless there is a real emergency – this will disable the unit until an engineer is able to attend to the charge point. 

Here are some tips if you’re having trouble with your cable after you’ve finished charging:  

1. Make sure you’ve stopped the charge in the app or with your RFID card. 

2. Check the digital screen to make sure the charge point has recognised the charge has finished. If you’re using one of our 3-7kW units the lights will turn blue to indicate this. 

3. Check whether your electric vehicle has a cable release feature. You should find details of this in the vehicle manual from the manufacturer.  

If none of the above work, please call our 24/7 customer services team on 0330 016 5126 and we’ll do our best to help you.  

Please don’t press the red emergency stop button unless there is a real emergency – this will disable the unit until an engineer is able to attend to the charge point.
