My Blink hasn't connected to my wireless network for the last 5 days and has been charging my car 100% without any issues. I don't use any vehicle charging timers and use a climate control timer for departure at 6:30am with the Blink configured to allow charging from 10pm to 6:30am, Monday through Friday, and the whole day on Saturday and Sunday.leafnode wrote:With that, I'm getting anxious about picking up a car that I possibly can't charge in the over night window as expected. So my questions is, if I put my Blink in the 'charge on connection" state, and use the LEAF's charging schedule administration capabilities (in-car or CarWings), can I be certain that the Blink will essentially act as a passive L2 EVSE?
Thanks. I'm not interested in hacking my Blink. In fact, I've already signed the agreement to that effect. As opposed to what's captured in the other threads, I'm hoping to establish that I can, in fact, charge my car with the logic side of the Blink not connected (but still on), not up to date (firmware) and generally acting randomly. Of course, this negates another Blink agreement item (reporting), but it's not based on user action, rather technical readiness of installed Blink unit. The larger issue is taking delivery of a car that can't be charged. Based on the responses, I'm feeling less "anxious" about that.

just got an email From Blink.thankyouOB wrote:blink says it will charge fine without connectivity, but they will want you to work with them to connect it.
if you have a smart connect or easy connect on your router, try using that after the first dont pass. it solved my problems.
they also report that 1.4a has a sleep mode. I am not sure I believe that. but I am cking by powering up my unit. i dont have the car yet.
