Frequently Asked Questions

Charging

How does charging work?


Bolts are fully electric, which means that you must charge the vehicle every night to ensure you have enough range to complete a full day of driving without interruption. Gemini reserves access to a charger within 10 minutes of your home or work. Once you finish driving for the day, you will drop off the car at the charger and head out. In the morning, you'll simply pick it up with a full charge and get going. The best part? Gemini will cover the cost of electricity, so your charging is FREE! Need more daily mileage? Our Bolts are able to use DC fast charging, enabling over 100 miles of range in 15 minutes.




Where do I charge?


There are two types of chargers for EVs: Level 2 & Fast Chargers. Level 2 adds around 25 miles per hour, whereas Fast Chargers can get up to 200 miles per hour. Gemini has a network of Level 2 chargers located throughout the Greater Los Angeles area. Drivers have FREE access to overnight usage of these Level 2 chargers. Once you make an account, we will send you a list of all available locations. If you are interested in renting an electric scooter for a small additional fee, please let us know. Fast Chargers can be found across LA, and are available at driver's expense. We recommend downloading the "PlugShare" app to help locate these.
