Releasing fully charged vehicles by the listed due time is a critical part of being a Charger.
When you capture a vehicle, a release time is automatically calculated for when the vehicle needs to be released. The calculated time is based on when the vehicle was captured and its battery percentage. You can find the release time under the MY TASKS list in Charger Mode.
Any vehicles still captured after the assigned 7 a.m. release time will become "Overdue" and automatically lock.
Releasing and Nest Availability
Nest are available for release 24 hours a day. As a reminder, nests available for release will show on the charger map. If there are no nests on the map, then nests are full. Keep an eye on the charger map for current nest availability.
Though nests will be available 24 hours a day, you still need to release vehicles fully charged before their due time. You can check the due time and battery percentage for each of your captured vehicles in the My Tasks section of the app.
Breakdown of due times:
- Vehicles captured before midnight are due at 10 a.m. the following day. For example, a vehicle captured at 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday is due at 10 a.m. on Wednesday.
- Vehicles captured between 12 a.m. - 4 a.m. are due by 10 a.m. the same day. This means that a vehicle captured at 3 a.m. on Wednesday is also due at 10 a.m. on Wednesday.
Same Day Release
At times you can find yourself with the opportunity to pick up vehicles pretty early in the day, you can charge and release them to 100% same day with no penalties, as long as you’re aware that your payment will be processed the next day.
Note: It is important that you release your vehicles within 24 hours from the point of capture. Holding vehicles for over 24 hours risks a payout of $0, and consistent behavior will have a negative impact on your ability to charge and can lead to the termination of your Charger status.
