Level II Residential Product Was Formerly Offered by Ecotality
Miami Beach-based CarCharging Group says it’s resumed sales of the Blink HQ residential electric vehicle charger through its Blink Network subsidiary.
The 240-volt, 30-amp Level II unit was formerly sold by Ecotality. Ecotality’s Blink products and network were acquired by CarCharging late last year.
The Level II Blink HQ charger ‘is cost-effective, easy to use, and is compatible with all electric cars sold in the United States including the Tesla Model S, Nissan LEAF, Chevy Volt, Mitsubishi i-Miev, Toyota Prius Plug-In, Honda Fit EV, and Toyota Rav4 EV,’ CarCharging says. It retails for $699.
A Blink HQ purchase includes membership to the Blink Network: “To thank customers for their purchase of the Blink HQ and introduce them to Blink’s public charging locations, a $100 bonus credit for the Blink Network is currently included with a Blink HQ purchase,” CarCharging says.
Charging Service Integration
“Providing EV drivers with the opportunity to fast charge their EV at home and connecting them with our public charging stations is the first step in integrating EV charging services and ensuring that drivers have the ability to easily charge their EV wherever they are,” CarCharging CEO Michael Farkas said in a Tuesday release.
The Blink HQ features a delay timer, helping users avoid peak utility rates. The charger includes an 18-foot cable with cable hanger bracket at no additional cost, as well as a 12-month limited parts and labor warranty.
CarCharging (OTCQB:CCGI) notes “strategic partnerships across multiple business sectors including multi-family residential and commercial properties, parking garages, shopping malls, retail parking, and municipalities.”
Those partners, the company says, include Walgreens, IKEA, Wal-Mart, the Simon Property Group, Equity One, Equity Residential, Forest City, Cinemark USA, Fox Studios, Facebook, PayPal, Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants, the Mayo Clinic, the San Diego Padres, the University of Pennsylvania, Ace Parking, Central/USA Parking, Icon Parking, Rapid Parking, Parking Concepts, CVS, Related Management, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and the cities of Phoenix, Philadelphia, and Miami Beach.
In addition to Blink hardware, CarCharging’s Blink Network includes charging equipment manufactured by Aerovironment, ChargePoint, Efacec, General Electric, Nissan, and SemaConnect.
