Can I use my credit card or my identity card to activate a free charging station?

  • Please never use the identity card or a bank card.

    Yes, they also have RFID, but they have multiple "identities", this is a security feature and perfectly normal. Has a consequence, however, that they no longer sign up with the same ID at the end of the charging process as at the start. The charging station will not know you anymore and you are stuck because it does not unlock the cable. So just use any of your charge cards and remember which one it was.
