Sometimes that cornerside Shell station just won't provide what you need, especially if you have an electric car. That's why Coulomb Technologies has launched a charging-station-locater app for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Users can tap into their device's GPS functionality to find the nearest charging station, including turn-by-turn directions and the availability of charging equipment at the station.

The app also allows users to connect to their ChargePoint Network account, which provides more detailed info of charging and account history.

The app isn't just for electric car owners, either. "Any current or prospective plug-in car owner can check out this app, then show it off to spur even more interest in fueling our cars with cleaner, cheaper, domestic electricity," said CalCars.org founder Felix Kramer.
