For best results, you will need:
- A chargepoint we can connect to. (list)
- Or a supported smart vehicle we can connect to. (list)
- An hourly contract (more info)
- Optional: solar panels
On stekker.com/check , you can do a check to see if your setup is compatible with Stekker. The Stekker app will also guide you through this. On stekker.com, you can find more info about who we are and what services we offer.
Some countries that we’re currently supporting
We are actively expanding our level of support and compatibility with as many countries as possible. Right now, we have high levels of compatibility with rate plans and charging operators in:
Europe: Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, United Kingdom, Hungary, Italy, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Czech Republic, Sweden, Switzerland, and Serbia.
North America: United States and Canada (In states and provinces where hourly rates are available)
Charge points we can connect to
The advantage of connecting Stekker to a charge point is that any vehicle can smart charge through it. Stekker will control the charge through the plug itself, so it is agnostic which vehicle is hooked up specifically.
In theory, any charger that supports the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) should work with Stekker. But there are many subtle differences between these chargers and how they have implemented this protocol specifically - which makes it hard to give clear, singular answer to the questions about specific chargers.
Basic compatibility for chargers
Here’s a list of charger brands that we have confirmed to work well with Stekker (May 2023). Note: this does not mean that other brands don’t – we just haven’t had the opportunity to verify enough models from other brands:
- EV Box
- Volt Time
- (and this list will grow)
Are you on the right type of energy contract?
Stekker works best with energy contracts that vary their pricing. Stekker will hunt for the cheapest hours. Some of the names of these contracts are:
- Dynamic pricing (hourly)
- Time-of-use contract (TOU)
The best results are reached on a dynamic, hourly-based contract. This way, you’ll be able to charge for the lowest prices possible.
Do you have solar panels?
Stekker is compatible with solar panels, and will use them to power your home and car when it’s smart to do so.
