I just received my BLINK Charging Station Today - Installers had an easy time hanging it just a few feet from the sub-panel.
After the installers lef, the Firmware Updating seemed to take forever (more than 1 hour), then the unit was stuck in "Update Complete. Restarting Unit" mode !?! so I called BLINK Support - She had me unplug the unit, wait 5 minutes, and plug it back in - It came back with "Your Firmware is being Updated." (I think it always checks when power is restored) and in a few seconds later, It prompted me to go through all the same initial settings (Network Security, Timezone, Time, etc...) all over again. It's up and working now.
I asked BLINK Support what the standby power usage was and she e-mailed that it is 49.14 Watts (I suspect they are using the rated power, not actual usage) . I'm glad to read on the Forum that it has been measured at between 12 to 16 Watts. Using Screen Timeout mode might not save a lot of standby power, but it will likely prolong the life and quality of the display.
