Ecotality Introduces New Home EV Charging Units | EarthTechling

In 2010, electric vehicle (EV) charging company Ecotality first introduced Blink, its line up of Level 2 EV charging units for the home and business. Now the company isoffering two new EV chargers through its Blink HQ suite.

Both Level 2 units are aimed for the home owner. The first Blink HQ home charger, scheduled to go on sale later this summer, is a 30-amp unit that features user-selected delay (2, 4, 6, or 8-hour) option to optimize the EV charging experience. The second unit is scheduled to arrive later. According to the company, this unit will have connected capabilities and remote access, which means it’ll most likely have “smart grid” access (to manage power flow) and be controlled via smartphone apps. Regardless, purchasers of the Blink HQ chargers will be given free membership to the Blink Networkof 4,000+ public EV charging stations as well as a $100 credit to use the network.
