Can I charge my electric bike at an EV charging station?

I’m currently trying to plan a multi-day camping trip on my electric bike, but I’m not sure about how much luck I’ll have with finding charging stations along the way. There are several EV charging ports along my route, will I be able to use these to charge my electric bike?

First of all, congrats on your
camping trip
! In terms of finding charging stations, if you live somewhere that
electric car
charging stations are abundant, that’s great, but you may not even need that to keep your electric bike powered up.
In the U.S., most electric bikes are charged by plugging into a standard 110V outlet. A 220V outlet—which is what most EV charging stations use—can safely charge your electric bike somewhat faster than a standard outlet, but always check to make sure your bike’s battery is compatible with a higher voltage outlet before plugging in.
With permission, you’re probably best off charging your bike at any of the following public amenities:
  • Campgrounds
  • Bike shops
  • Public parks
  • Libraries
  • Fire stations
  • Rest stops
