Oh OK. Didn't realize there were TWO problems with the Blink.
I knew that Broadway Electric discovered overheating of the termination wires in my original Blink unit in August 2012 when they were doing the corrections that were causing fault problems on many of the Blink units requiring power down resets frequently. They contacted Blink and the unit was replaced under warranty.
But I was not aware of actual fire at the power termination block till I came across the info following info on the change to maximum 24 amps.
See viewtopic.php?f=27&t=14542&start=80#p331686 for info.
I'm not sure Blink has a fix for the termination block.
Ingineer stated it is not adequate for 30 amps. Bit inadequate for 20 amps.
The Blink unit presents some risk at 16 amps, but it is what I have and I am still using it.
But using one at 30 amps is a very bad idea in my opinion.
But my neighbor has been using one at 27.5 amps for his 2013 LEAF SL for about 18 months so far without any detected problems.
