Using Blink charging Stations

edited November -1 in Model X
I just download the app for Blink charging stations there is an application for free membership which involves entering your credit card information with the membership they offer a lower cost per kilowatt hours just wanted to get an opinion on using those charging stations as an alternate for the Superchargers

    Blink is SUPER expensive compared to chargepoint (47 cents per KWH, 37 cents per KWH member price; vice 22 cents a KWH) locations at least in Florida. I am much better off going 20 miles out of my way for a supercharger.

    Blink is the most expensive charger I have ever used & have no intention of ever using it again. In my opinion, it is like paying $4.00 per gallon for gas.
  • Not only that, but Blink has been letting the maintenance go on a high number of their chargers - I haven't kept an accounting of the issue, but it seems like more often than not, they are out of order, and so can't be counted on.

    blink is terrible. stations are usually 'on the blink.'

    that must be where the name comes from.

    I signed up for chargepoint, evgo and blink when I bought my first EV. I've never used blink because there is always one of the other two available for a lower price. I would recommend you get a plan that does not have a monthly charge unless you plan on using that network for a lot of charging.
  • Blink is really expensive. $0.02 for 30 second means $2.4 per hour. A level 2 connector's charging speed is 18 miles per hour.

    That means $2.4 18 miles.
