So, we made a trek tonight from Irvine to watch a game at the Staples Center (RT=80+). Being an evening game and having two young kids with us, we decide if we can't charge at our destination, we're not gonna try for anything beyond a few blocks away (i.e., Downtown Nissan). So, thanks to a little extra juice from the QC at Mitsubishi's HQ in Cypress, the trip was a breeze and we had plenty of cushion.
However, after the game, as we are heading back to the West Garage (Chick Hearn Ct. and Georgia St.), what do we see? Three Blink J1772/L2s on the upper P1 level! Apparently, they have yet to be powered up. They are installed but the J1772 nozzles still have bubble wrap. Needless to say, as of yesterday, these did not show up on the Blink network map.
Anyways, for future reference, once these are live, they will be a perfect option for anyone coming to an event at the Staples Center/Nokia Theater/LA Live area. Next time, we can skip the detour to Cypress and just do some L2 destination charging while we're at the game. Can't wait.
Don't know if/what the charging fee will be then. Of course, the usual parking fee in this garage would apply.
