Been requesting a Blink card for 6 months. Still nothing. If I was even able to find a Blink unit, I would not be allowed to use it. Its just crazy!

Don't forget to add these charging stations to the following sites so people learn about them!

OpenChargeMap.org
Regargo
NAVTEQ, so these charging stations show up on the car's navigation system.

If you have the PlugShare mobile app, you can add stations there as well.

Has anyone been to this location lately to confirm what is actually in place?

There are 4 units, but I haven't added them to my first post on this thread because they're not powered up yet...Soon, hopefully....

They were (mostly) powered up today. Lots of bugs and gremlins that we've come to know and love with these Blinks. There are four L2s, and two L1 plug-ins on the east side of the building.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Sept 15:
This morning at 10:30, 3 Blink units will be dedicated at Ace parking in downtown San Diego at 1240 4th Ave...

Edit after event: KUSI TV was there and did interviews. I'll post a photo or two later. Three Blink units are available. SDG&E's Volt, CCSE's Plug-in Prius, and Jerome S.'s Leaf were there for the event. Parking AND charging will be free for the first month at this location.

ACE Press release and announcement of more units:
http://www.aceparking.com/press-release ... e-chargers" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

--------------------------------------------------------------------
I charged in this lot a couple of weeks ago. The sign said it would be free through the 14th. In the lot, I happened to run across a rep from Baker Electric that did the install, and a rep from Ecotality. They asked me what I thought the charge was worth to me. I was headed to a conference, and didn't have much time, and I basically tossed it back at them and said "you know what the charge is worth" (referring to the market cost of a kWh)

So.. did they change the sign. What did they decide to charge?

I know the downtown parking itself is worth something. One problem though is that when they limit you to 4 hours, that's not enough to fully charge. I needed 7 hours of charge to get back to OC. So if they make it much more inconvenient or costly, it'll just lead drivers somewhere else.

I ended up using the lot four hours each over two days, mostly to just try it out (first time on Bl!nks). However if I had to pay much, I might have just made arrangements with my hotel for a 120V receptacle.

Randy, didn't you say there was a Blink going in at the SDGE Energy Innovation Center at Diana and Clairemont Mesa Blvd? Is that one live yet?
