I'm not sure even they could tell you. I got mine, registered it, and the "My RFID Cards" page on blinknetwork.com showed two entries: One pending request, and one registered card. :)

Thanks Dave for the good info. We have an Aero Environment unit at home. Bought it ala carte and had our neighbor electrician perform the electrical upgrade and installation. I'm going off of memory now, but I think that saved us about $600 maybe more. We've been very pleased with the AE unit.

Got one today. I never requested it but I'm part of the EV Project (have a Blink EVSE in my garage). I tried to activate the card and failed. I never had a Blink membership on their website, but when I sign up it says my email address is already in their system (I gave them the address for announcements related to the unit in my garage)... their password reset tool doesn't email you a password, it emails you a link that brings up a dialog to reset your password, but you need to know the old password to change it. I'll have to get Blink support to fix this.

Good luck getting through to Blink customer support!

They have a huge volume of support calls right now, because they simultaneously: mailed out all the backlogged RFID cards, ensuring that lots of people would need to access the web site; invalidated all old passwords, or all old passwords which hadn't changed from their initial setting, or all old passwords which weren't long enough; and changed their password recovery mechanism to a new one which doesn't work.

Hmm, make multiple software changes on a critical system simultaneously, without testing, and do it at the time of greatest need for stability. Yes, I see their software management philosophy remains the same. :-)

But on the other hand, my Blink unit crashes rarely, and ECOtality has finally started installing public charging stations. So I'm willing to cut them a lot of slack!

Just saw that. Their MIS people are really talented, not sure I trust them with any secure info.

my blink card arrived today. when I logged in to register it, it showed that my requested card is still pending. after registering my card, the registered one now shows up as my second card, with the 1st still coming soon. :roll:

Right, see above, that's what happened to me.

I sent 'em an email; they fixed it within an hour.
