So far, the 1.5A firmware (LAN hardwired) had a proper 'delayed charge' and a proper 'start charge' command. The LAN seems stable, but we shall see...

Carwings says charging - Blink says not charging. Who should I believe ?

update : Blink total charge just went up from 79.85 to 79.86. So I guess, Carwings is correct.

Also, Blink on intranet times out when I move between tabs. Hmmm ....

When I got home I checked the Blink and while the actual unit had the latest firmware listed, the Intranet page did not. I checked the Blink Network page and it had the latest firmware listed too...

I also was having issues with lagging pages so I rebooted the Blink.

When it came back up, everything had the correct firmware listed and all the pages moved smoothly again...

I don't understand why people are using the Blink timers. I have no problems of any kind and my wireless works great and charging is fine every time. I do know from many years of experience that many consumer grade wireless routers can have issues with some wifi connections, I only use commercial grade products to eliminate such issues.

I changed the timer on my Leaf to start charging to 80% at 8pm now instead of 0:50 and so far the Blink has been behaving nicely, i.e. it charges the car as intended. Maybe the finally got this problem fixed. I am currently only using one bar, so I havent seen it working flawless for hours, but the charge from 75% to 83% seems to work now.

At this point I should also say something nice about Blinks CS, they took quite some time (>1h) to discuss the problems I had with the Blink and even called me back to see if the new firmware was working better!

For me the Blink timer is working fine, but the reason for doing so is that way I'm able to easily support the EV Charge Protocol when I'm charging in public. It would get kinda old after a while going into the timers to turn them on and off every day.
