I have no problem paying by the kWh, but not $.49 per kWh for L2.

The right side has been down for ages (busted cord) but I've had good luck with the left side... seems spotty according to plug share.

The way that unit is installed puts a lot of strain on the cord. You have to back in, and the cord makes a huge bend out from the CHAdeMO nozzle up to the billboard thing. AQMD should rip them out and install two Nissan units. :)

other than L2's which are installed in bunches up to 12 stations in one location here, I have taken the same tact. Have not been to a Blink Fast charger in prob 3-4 months...could even be longer

Horrible here. I signed up on Jan 2 and have asked many times for an Incard. Still no incard.

Still using guest codes, even though I'm paying the monthly $5 fee.

No QC chargers in Houston that I've seen.

I hope someone reading this has an extra? I'd pay for it!

Crazy, but not surprising... about $1 million in revenue, but they lost almost $8.5 million in the process.

Any idea why they are so behind in filing their quarterly earnings reports? Most public companies don't have THIS big a lag.

Their explanation for the 1Q 2015 10-K filing being late...

CAR CHARGING GROUP INC. (the “Registrant”) was unable, without unreasonable effort or expense, to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2014 (the “Quarterly Report”) by the May 15, 2014 filing date applicable to smaller reporting companies due to a delay experienced by the Registrant in completing its financial statements and other disclosures in the Quarterly Report. As a result, the Registrant is still in the process of compiling required information to complete the Quarterly Report and its independent registered public accounting firm requires additional time to complete its review of the financial statements for the period ended March 31, 2014 to be incorporated in the Quarterly Report. The Registrant anticipates that it will file the Quarterly Report no later than the fifth calendar day following the prescribed filing date.

Nissan Pulls Plug On CarCharging Agreement On 48 DC Fast Chargers

“…over two years ago CarCharging Group entered into an agreement with Nissan to install 48 DC fast chargers, along with their own network of Blink DC fast chargers acquired in the meantime from bankrupt ECOtality.
It was a damn good deal, as CarCharging paid just $792,912.
Sadly, this project didn’t work too well and it seems that only part of the CHAdeMO chargers were installed (specifically 7), while the rest of the uninstalled units look to now go back to Nissan.”

I haven't come across or have I seen a Blink charger in my journeys and I am glad I haven't after seeing this thread and I don't have a fob for them either.

I hope in the coming years some of the weaker charger networks will be acquired and we are down to a couple of dominating networks across the country.
