Originally, Bay Area Blinks were $3.00/hr. People bitched because anyone with a 3.3 kW OBC got really hosed compared to those (FFE etc.) with 6.6s. Blink then changed to $0.49/kWh (member, $0.59/kWh guest) pricing which California allows, so everyone was still paying more than gas/mile, but being screwed equally.

The 'best' is the enemy of 'good enough'. Copper shot, not Silver bullets.

There's two locations in Cambridge MA, one is $0.03 per 30 seconds, the other is $0.59/kWh. Either way is allowed here now. Pricey, but I'd use the one at IKEA anyway.
