Zero EV chargers

All the bells and whistles

We’re working towards creating one of the biggest EV charging networks in New Zealand. We'll be delivering a mix of AC chargers located where people are likely to spend time and DC chargers for those who need a quick charging fix.

AC chargers

While not as fast as a Direct Current (DC) charger, our Alternating Current (AC) chargers are much faster (and safer) than plugging into a socket at home and the ideal top up if you're going to be parking up for a while - eg while you're at the movies or hitting the shops.

DC chargers

Direct Current (DC) chargers send power directly into your car battery, so they’re perfect if you’re in a hurry.

How to use our chargers

First, you’ll need to download and register on our Zero app. Then simply connect your EV with the charging cable (your own or the one provided). Scan the QR code on the charger with the Zero app and start charging. You’ll find easy to follow instructions on all our Zero charging stations.

Pricing and Payments

We’ve started rolling out payment across our AC chargers, so where you may have enjoyed free charging before, there may now be a charge. Some chargers will remain free, thanks to the support from the landowners. To find pricing for each charger, jump on the Zero app.

To keep it easy, we have one set rate for all AC chargers, so you’ll always know what to expect.

*The pre-authorisation is the total amount held on your card at the start of each charge. At the end of the charge when the total charge amount is known, the difference is then refunded back to your bank. This amount can take a few days to release back on your card depending on your banks processing times.
