Missing Greenlots and SemaCharge, as I think you are in Seattle.
Many Walgreens have SemaCharge stations.
Add Flo, if you go to Canada.

Seems very common, if not universal. Also check on Plugshare, if you are unsure.

Some Blink units have asked for my zip code. But usually, it just starts charging.
I usually prefer paid chargers while traveling, as they tend to be more reliable and available than the free units. Otherwise I charge at home, or sometimes at work.
AV/Webasto is a monthly charge of $20 for all the charging you want. Or call them, or use pay-with-PlugShare.
