Blink techs did some post-installation work to fix the current sensors and it has worked flawlessly for 7 years. The default current limit was lowered from 30 to 24 amps a few years ago to deal with the overheating handle issue, but my 2011 Leaf never draws more than 16 amps. The WiFi never worked reliably, so I used a hard-wired Ethernet cable.
Got a Tesla Model 3 in April and it draws the max 24 amps without any issues. The Leaf is feeling neglected.
I'll echo everything that leucadialeaf said. I too have a 2011 Blink EVSE from the "early adopter program" and after futzing with the WiFi wound up doing a hardwire ethernet line to a WiFi range extender
. Works flawlessly now.
I changed my Blink from their 24 Amp setting back up to the max 30 Amps to change my Model 3, but the first few times I used it, I used a temperature gun
to monitor the handle every 30 minutes or so to make sure it didn't get too hot. I guess I got a good J1772 cable, but YMMV - take care!
Lastly, in case you want to (carefully) experiment, here's the post
describing how to change the Amperage setting on a Blink EVSE.
