Blink is an electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and product line owned by CarCharging. Blink refers to the branded EV charging stations, software, and online service components that make up a rich charging infrastructure known as the Blink Network.
Please refer to the Blink Network website for information about charging rates and membership in the Blink Network. If you are not a member of the Blink Network, you may be able to charge your vehicle as a Blink Guest (information on the Blink Network website).
