OK, So I tried to use the one at Kailua Shell. Broke yesterday! Yep, somebody broke it. They expect to have it fixed next week. Think the one in Waipio is working?

They really need to stop deploying CHAdeMO units with the easily broken plugs... I would have thought that most CHAdeMO manufacturers have figured out that having a plug that breaks when you look at it funny is not good for business...

No, both these were AV stations. The other picture in this thread was not one of these.

we also had our first AV station failure here in Tumwater Friday night. QC session was started and running fine. got to 5 KW and user decided to check Carwings from smartphone when he did that, it caused AV station to fault. station could not be remotely reset and is still down at this moment

Apparently the Kailua station was criminally targeted and stripped of its electrical wiring. The Kahala one was just accidentally broken by a user. The Waipio station is still functioning, last I heard. Check the PlugShare app for the latest (and please contribute with updates :) )

Seems to be a CHAdeMO standard. Most of the pictures of the CHAdeMO chargers I've seen (admittedly never seen one in person yet) seem to use blue for start and green for stop. Weird, I agree.
well i have used a few of them and our "standard" is green-go, red-stop
Ah, in that case, apparently, I've just been looking at a bunch of similar pics. :) I've noticed the weird colored buttons on some of the CHAdeMO chargers from Japan.

And now people are stealing the cabling? This is what I was afraid of. I sure hope people don't start ripping off L2 station cables next.

Not sure if everyone knows or not, but the 3 level 3 charging stations (Kahala, Waipio, and Kailua) are now charging six dollars a session as of April 1, 2013
