Got the email notification this afternoon re update in next few days. Main screen looked as usual when plugging in 15 mins. ago. Just went back to check. Yup, on 2.0 and charging ok so far.

Got 2.0 firmware, but the wireless connection still does not work (it worked in the past before with upgraded 1.8 firmware). Blink told me that new "2.0" could fix the wireless connection.

I tried my Blink for the first time with the new firmware 2.0. It worked and charged my LEAF to 10 bars (80%, timer in LEAF was used) as requested. What I noticed is that the display showed the amount of energy passed (12.2 kWh), which was about the same as what showed up on my Blink internet site (12.15 kWh). I don't recall seeing an energy display on the Blink screen with 1.8. Or am I just not observant? The font color on the screen was also different - showed green color.

It was too cold in the garage to play around with the display to see if anything else is different.

If your local network connection is working, you can check it from your network connected computer by inputting the appropriate IP address (found on and password (default password is "blinkadmin" I believe). Unfortunately, on my unit, this function is causing errors (http error codes) since it upgraded to 2.0. It was working perfectly fine on 1.8 earlier.

Interesting. Mine updated about a week ago and that function is working fine for me, and I was able to change the password with no issues...

At the end of January my Blink stopped showing my kWh usage and estimated cost. It seems it will still show the time interval for the charging. But something is flaky. My firmware version still shows L2R.1.8A.

I called into Blink. They indicated they didn't feel it was a big concern at this time and indicated the new firmware version was coming out and to basically hang tight and wait a little longer.

We unplugged the unit and the network seemed to be working okay after rebooting, but there has not been a transmission of data since the end of Jan. I feel there is somekind of failure, but am willing to wait. I was wondering if in preparation for the Blink Firmware 2.0 if something at their end is causing this.

The blink person also made is sound like the cost estimate display information needed to come back from their server in a two way communication with my Blink. Hmm.. I would think the kWh usage and estimate could all be calculated in the blink and displayed locally. It has been working good until now.

Anyone else with something similar.
