EV Charger News Footnotes
Revised 12/30/06.

* Notes:
  • In the Action column:
  • ADD INF indicates a location with additional information recently added.
  • NEW LOC indicates a location recently added.
  • CHG REC indicates a location with data changes recently made.
  • DEL LOC indicates a location to be deleted from the list, permanently out of service.
  • DOWN LOC indicates a location that is temporarily out of service.
  • PLANNED indicates a location planned or under construction, not yet operational.
  • PROB LOC indicates a location that has problems, or may be partially out of service. Read the details before planning to use this location.
  • RESOLVED previous problem has been recently resolved.
  • *UNVER* indicates a location that has been added from unverified reports. Do not count on this location. If you visit the location, please get details and email them by clicking on this link: -- or (preferably) submit an "I was there" report to assist future drivers.
  • In the Site Name column:
  • When the Site Name is a hyperlink, the link is to a detail information page for that site.
  • Latitude and Longitude coordinates of the site are given, when known, with respect to the WGS-84 geophysical reference. A parenthetical letter next to the Lat/Long coordinates indicates how the corrdinates were determined;
  • (C) - Computed - indicates that the coordinates were determined from the Street Address, using the MapBlast! service. Note that MapBlast! is now discontinued, and we are converting to Microsoft Streets and Trips as time permits.
  • (S) - Computed - indicates that the coordinates were determined from the Street Address, using Microsoft Streets and Trips software.
  • (M) - Mapped - indicates that the coordinates were determined by adjusting the Tiger crosshair so that the apparent location on the map agrees with the known location of the charger(s).
  • (Z) - Zip - indicates that the lat/long coordinates were determined from only the Zip code, because Map!Blast could not recognize the street address. Do not expect such coordinates to be accurate for GPS or mapping purposes.
  • (V) - Visited - indicates that the Lat/Long coordinates were determined by an on-site measurement with a GPS receiver.
  • Whenever the suffix letter is other than (V), a visit with a GPS receiver is requested, in order to improve the accuracy of the coordinates. Even if the suffix letter is a (V), it's a good idea to re-check the coordinates and resubmit them if they are more than about 100 feet off.
  • If you visit a site, please use the If you visit a site, please use the "I was there"online form. to submit your information.
  • A small but sometimes significant variation has been noted between measured GPS values and plotted locations using mapping services, or even between distinct mapping services. When looking for chargers, drivers should be aware that the difference between (M) and (V) measurements can be on the order of a few dozen to a few hundred feet in some cases.

  • In the Charging station types column:
  • SPI indicates small-paddle inductive.
  • LPI indicates large-paddle inductive. See photo of large and small inductive paddles.
  • AVC indicates "Avcon"-type conductive. (SAE J1772.) (EVI brand unless AVCA, which indicates Avcon brand, or AVCS, which indicates SCI brand.)
    See photo of an EVI brand Avcon charging station.
    See photo of an Avcon brand charging station.
    See photo of an SCI brand Avcon charging station.
  • YAZC indicates Yazaki conductive (for early RAV4 EVs). See photo.
  • TT30C indicates "Travel trailer" conductive receptacle (120V). See drawing.
  • 1450C indicates NEMA 14-50 conductive receptacle (208/240V). See diagram.
  • 520C indicates NEMA 5-20 conductive receptacle (120V). See photo.
  • 515C indicates NEMA 5-15 conductive receptacle (120V). See photo.
    See diagrams of NEMA plug and receptacle configurations

  • Be sure the type of connector your car needs is listed at the site you intend to use!
  • 208V or 240V indicate the nominal service voltage at this location. In most circumstances, 240V means faster charging than 208V.
