Yours are coming as SMS, but mine definitely came as emails, which is how I configured my profile.

This is just so Blink!

Interesting gbarry42. Every time I look at Blinky (yes, I named my Blink...clever, isn't it?), the uptime is less than 12 hours. So it must be rebooting regularly.

I have an open ticket going with the Blink NOC about how we can't get my rate info updated in ol' Blinky, and we have an ongoing mail dialog about that. I added this mystery "Charge Stopped" email occurrence to that thread, and they were surprised. "Who sent that?" they asked. "no-reply@blinknetwork.com" I said (they don't know?!?!).

I also told them that several folks at MNL have been experiencing these spurious messages.

They're investigating.

[Meanwhile, we still can't get my rate info into Blinky, either by me entering it via the website or them trying to push it directly.]

Sorry about that. I hadn't actually tried to CHANGE the rate data from the website, I just saw that the rate data I (painstakingly) entered through the intranet was there and apparently much easier to edit. I hope you're having fun as much fun with your beta EVSE as I am!

I have determined, after another week of observations, that each time I get a message from (the) Blink, it corresponds to the moment the plug is pulled from the front of the car. Not terribly useful, but if I leave the car at home, I can see the exact moment LMW goes out on errands.
And there goes the first capacity bar! At 24,000 mi on 9/9/2013.
Second bar at 30,500 mi on 2/7/2015.

The messages had stopped, and I figured out that the profile config for notifications was reset. Interesting.
