We've had our 2012 Leaf since December 2011.
We signed up for the Bay Area Air Quality Management District's (BAAQMD) Plug-In Electric Vehicle (PEV) Readiness Plan and had a Blink installed in early January.
The unit cannot connect directly through our wireless network. Ecotality installed a 'PLC/Valet combo' (an Alfa powerline adapter and a Cisco Valet Plus wireless router.) Recently the PLC equipment has started dropping out and Car Charging Group sent out a message asking that I reboot the Blink. Clearly it will communicate until the PLC drops out. I can run a network test from the console and everything passes the test.
Looking ahead, is it time to dump the Blink and consider another EVSE?
If so, what do Leaf drivers like best in 2015? What is the best value for the money invested? Clearly all I'd need to do is replace the EVSE, the wiring to it works fine.
Should I just consider turning the Blink into a 'dumb EVSE?'
Are there other questions I should be asking?
