My closest L2s (10 at one site) are usually working; the lone QC there is variable - some months back somebody broke the emergency shut-off button off, and CCGI has 'repaired' it several times just by splicing the wires together and leaving them exposed The L2 are underused (I've never seen more than 4 of the 10 occupied) because they're so expensive. The QC costs $0.10/kWh more, but is faster so gets more use, and even that's very limited. I'm aamzed they've lasted this long, even after picking up the remnants of Ecotality for something like $0.04 on the dollar.
That "fix" isn't surprising and their costs are so substantially high that it is no wonder that they are rarely used, but I'm amazed that the L2 chargers are working, seriously.
