kovalb wrote:I've had 2.0 for a while. I noticed the main display after charging was not showing correct information. For example it showed zero off peak charging. This last weekend the display changed. It no longer shows off peak charging used, instead it shows total kWh used as the top item, and it appears to be correct. The software version is now 2.02.something, I can't recall the entire number.

Things are getting better :D
Yeah the original version of 2.0 had a lot of issues with the statistics being off. The latest version has worked just fine the whole month of February.

I had one problem this month with the ability to connect to the Blink via a web browser giving errors. The unit rebooted itself shortly after the errors occurred and all is fine again.

My Blink updated itself today to Firmware Version 2.0.20120112 E1.10. Same user interface as before, except now I can have it display stuff in S.I. units rather than medieval units....that is nice, but it is still not showing the current energy consumed.

Yes, at a constant charge rate of 3.3 kW or 3.7 kW we could simply do the math ourselves with the over-sized timer that the unit still displays while charging, but why they chose NOT to display energy used in kWH is a mystery to me...It seems to be such an obvious feature...

My Blink is still on the older firmware L2R.1.8A, I have also seen multiple "user.err updatesession: [EVSE] 11 Not authorized messages" in the log. Anybody has the latest 2.0 firmware file that I can use to update my Blink?

Nothing will change, it seems like 2.0 has the same goofy interface as before.
The biggest thing for me was moving it from wireless (which almost always failed) to ethernet over powerline. Since then 1.8 and 2.0 have been running flawless all the time. My record continuous up-time was 36 days!
Note that the update erases ALL stats on the unit...

Mine also has been completely reliable with wired ethernet instead of wifi. Took 8 hours of crawling in the attic and under the house to get a line there.

They had to come out and put a new SD card in mine when it would not update.
