ChargePoint fast charger / membership experience?

Hello collective forum wisdom, I'm looking to go on a road trip and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the ChargePoint network ... any thoughts welcome, thanks!

Not many of them. EVGo is your best bet.

I've only seen one 24 kW ChargePoint DCFC.
It was at the dealer, but was not working.
Level 2 seems most available, and not that fast (~20 miles/hr.)
unless you can use a destination overnight charge.

Depending on your destination (to Tahoe or Monterey, Evgos drive the arc system of Fast DC chargers (CHAdeMO & CCS) may be helpful. https://drivethearc.com/

I've used a few ChargePoint chargers, both L2 and fast-DC, free and paid, in the US and Canada. They seem to work fine with the I-Pace.

For finding chargers, PlugShare seems to be the big winner. Among other things, free ChargePoint chargers, e.g. in your employer's garage, don't show on the CP map.

Yeah I'm not leaving anything to chance .. EVGo, ChargePoint, Plugshare, EE, etc. Glad to hear ChargePoint is working for people, I just got the app and an account.

The one notable thing about ChargePoint:
Either BMW or VW or both set up corridors of 22kW simple CCS-only stations. They don't support Level 2 AC. Some are at hotels.

But they also have modern 50kW chargers with CHAdeMO and L2 stations.

Lots of the L2 public stations installed by cities or campuses are ChargePoint. Some are free or dirt cheap.

You might also look into having EV Connect. I ran into one of these at Costco in Goleta. You use it via the cellphone app. It was fast for a 50kW charger. Added like 50kW in an hour. ChargePoints get me about 43-44 in an hour.

OH!! If you are an I-Phone user, and your phone is plugged in, hold down the Voice button on the left side of wheel and say "Siri, find me an EV charger". I have figured out how to make it more discerning though. I want to say "EVgo Charger" or something, but it doesn't discern.
