How to charge with an RFID card
About RFID cards
An RFID (radio-frequency identification) card allows a charge station to identify who you are when it is linked to your Chargefox account. With an RFID card, you can charge your vehicle without using your app. This can be useful when you are sharing your vehicle with others, or if there is limited or no access to internet signals at charge station locations.
Where to get an RFID card
Registered Chargefox app users can order RFID cards from the My profile section of the app.
Note: you will need to have app version 2.34.1 or higher to see this option. If you’re not able to see the button to order an RFID, you may need to update your app. Once you have an RFID card, you will need to follow the instructions below to link it to your Chargefox account before you will be able to use it.
