Looks like to me that they'll be contacting us to provide a big discount on a Blink HQ if we give them the old Blink. That's probably a good idea from their standpoint as they can use them to deploy and repair commercial stations that are making them money.EV Project Extension
As a residential participant in the EV Project, you may have been aware that the EV Project had been scheduled to terminate on December 31st, 2013. While the Department of Energy (“DoE”) has extended the scheduled end date of the project, please be advised that with the DoE's approval, CarCharging has elected to conclude the residential portion of the project as the major goals of the project have been met.
In regard to the warranty and service of your equipment, please be reassured that we will value all of our customers and will honor contract commitments and complete service requests (under warranty terms) reported to Blink Customer Support prior to December 31st, 2013.
Additionally, in the near future, you will hear from us shortly about new home residential charging options, including options to replace your Blink Level 2 Charger with a new Blink HQ or purchasing an extended service plan for your existing Blink Level 2 residential charger. Stay tuned for further information on these options.
We thank you for your participation and your help in making the EV Project a success! We look forward to continuing our partnership.
Personally, I really like the scheduling functionality of the original Blink, so I'm not inclined to swap it out for a Blink HQ. However, I am excited that maybe we'll start seeing some modified software for the Blink to add additional functionality (kinda like what happened to the Linksys WRT54G wireless routers).
