What's the difference between Level 2 and DC Fast Chargers?

How does the installation of EV charging equipment work?

EVSE Installations should always be performed under the guidance of a certified electrician or electrical engineer. Conduit and wiring runs from the main electrical panel, to the charging station's site. The charging station is then installed according to the manufacturer's specifications. You can find out more information from the Construction Resources for EVSE Installation page.

Local load management allows for multiple chargers to share and distribute power for a single electrical panel or circuit.

Blink charging stations can be set for a predetermined per kilowatt, or time-based, price. The chargers can also be set to free. When working with a Sales Executive, they help you understand what is best for your facility.

No, assuming there is cellular signal at the installation site. If cellular signal is weak you may need WiFi or a cellular repeater.

The unit light will display blue if it is plugged into an electric vehicle and charging. If it is plugged into a vehicle and displays green, it means that the charge has been completed, and the station is available to be used by another EV driver.

When the power turns back on, the unit will go through its reboot and test cycles. Upon successful completion, it will automatically return to its waiting to charge state. If a vehicle was charging at the time the power went out, the driver would need to restart their charge.

Typically, if the station won’t turn on or the screen does not display, the breaker feeding the unit has been tripped or is turned off. Please check the breaker. If the breaker is on and the unit still does not work, please contact Blink Network Operations Center (NOC) at (888) 998.2546 x2.

Commissioning refers to the process of activating your already installed EV chargers on the Blink Network.

If your unit displays a “not commissioned” message, please contact Customer Support at (888) 998.2546
