My Blink was dead, newer red car is damaged and the older white one seems OK but still needs investigation. I achieve all these in about 2 minutes.
For the last year we charged both cars with one Blink and we were fine. The Blink sits on a side wall towards the front of the two car garage. To charge the car parked on the other side the cord was extended, not to max, but at both ends it needed about 1.5 feet before it rested on the floor of the garage.
Around noon today we were leaving with the newer red car and I moved the cord from the red car parked close to the Blink to the white one parked on the other side. As my wife started to back out of the garage we heard this noise like she hit something. She stopped and I noticed that older car stopped charging. I looked at the Blink and it said "Please plugin your car to start charging". I got off the car and I saw the J1772 connector on the floor. We were in a hurry, and I just flip the Blink breaker off and left.
After we reached our destination (32 miles away), our daughter noticed the damage on the red car. The cord got caught by the right front fender when we backed out of the garage. The car was parked closer to the side wall and farther to the front than normal.
When we got back I realized we needed L2 charging since L1 will not work for us on Monday, plus we need both cars charged to 100% on Sunday morning. After analyzing the connector and Blink, I decided that the only option I have is to put the cable and connector from the EVSE supplied with one of the cars. The Blink did not have any damage inside. The wires were stretched but there was no damage to the contactor. The pilot wire connector came apart and that save the old car from any electrical damage. I made sure on the install that I did the same thing with the pilot wire connector: it is quite shorter than the power carrying wires. About 3 hours later the newer car is charging on L2. After one hour of charging there was not heat on the contactor terminals, checked by touch.

Since I will be out of town next week and the wife does not want to go with the car to a shop, I spent another two hours getting the bumper back in its place as much as I could.
Front fender after some work:
Do you think the bumper can be repaired or it need to be replaced?
The old car is charging, the port seems undamaged. I will charge it in the morning and check for temperature in the port. The port does have a temperature sensor, right?
