Our goal is to provide electric vehicle (EV) drivers with the ability to charge their electric cars wherever they live, work, and play. By installing Blink EV charging stations wherever EV drivers park their car, we reduce “range anxiety” and support a zero-emission environment.
We are focused on providing convenient and affordable EV charging services that are convenient for EV drivers to find and use. We offer thousands of public EV charging stations located across the country. Public EV chargers on Blink Network can be found via the Blink Mobile application or our Blink map. Blink members can also enjoy discounted charging fees on our public, company-owned EV charging stations. Blink membership is free, so join today!
As an EV driver, there are instructions and guides that can help you enhance your electric car charging experience.
Types of EV Charging
Mode 3 400V, triple phase, AC units are most common type of charging stations for European car models. Mode 3 European Charger is the fastest AC charging station common for shared spaces where multiple electric vehicles can charge. Residential (housing communities, schools, and recreational centers) and Commercial (shopping centers, healthcare facilities and workplaces) spaces can all benefit from these dual-port stations. Our charger has a future-proof, ergonomic and energy-saving focused design that makes it easy to operate and manage through the Blink Network.
DC Fast Charging (DCFC) (typically 400V, 3-Phase AC input) is used for charging electric vehicles in commercial locations, as it requires more electrical infrastructure. Therefore, DCFC stations are currently not as widespread as Mode 3 electric vehicle charging stations. While DCFC stations can charge an EV more rapidly than Mode 3 charging stations (for example, a Nissan LEAF can charge on a DCFC station from 0% to 85% in about 30 minutes), they are not typically compatible with all electric cars. DC Fast Charging connectors vary by station. DC Fast Chargers currently on Blink Network offer the CHAdeMO connector, but there are plans to incorporate other standards, such as the SAE combo and Tesla’s proprietary connector, in the future.
