I've now found out that after setting up timers on my blink I have to power cycle it to get them to work now. Release the damn 2.0 firmware!

I have the new 2.x firmware, and it's lost the most important feature: last charge kWh. All it gives you is a cost figure you can derive an approximate value from, but only approximate. Since it resets the stats, I can actually get the "first charge since upgrade" stats: $1.70 (@$0.12/kWh) comes to 14.17kWh, however the monthly summary says 14.467kWh. Not a happy camper here...

They must be trying to push out the new software. My Blink has now gone Blank. Does not sense plug-in or unplug anymore and reports nothing. Have not had a problem for 1.5 months until now.

Reboot your Blink by unplugging and re-plug?

I wouldn't do that unless you were 100% sure it was hung up...as in waited at least an hour. I don't know what the screen says when it's updating the firmware, but unplugging it is the last thing you want to do when it's in the middle of the update.

My Blink seems to have died. Came home a week ago to find the calibration screen showing but no response to touching the cross. Power-cycled to the same result. At this point, I've cycled it a few more times and left it for several days with no change except that sometimes, the location of the cross changes to a different corner of the screen. Also, there is no response on the web interface.

However, it continues to charge my Leaf reliably. (Probably more reliable since the CPU won't be inter interfering :lol: )

I don't know if this is related to trying to update to 2.0. I'll call Blink eventually.

Mine has been doing that since November. Blink does not want to send anyone out to fix it until after blink 2.0 rolls out as I guess they think that might fix it.

Just checked mine, it's running 2.0. Everything was reset, and just a tip, it also reset the password to the default password which is 'blinkadmin' (just so you don't have to go looking for the manual).

Mine was also set to 2.0 this evening. Will try it tomorrow to see if it is any improvement over the 1.8.
