CarCharging adds remote start functionality to Blink charging stations

Launched by the CarCharging Group Inc, owner of the Blink network, the app means that once a driver locates and selects the Blink EV charging station on the Blink App, they have multiple options for beginning the charging session, including signing into their Blink Member account or continuing as a Blink guest and entering their credit card information directly into the App.

The updated version of the Blink App is currently available on Google Play for Android device and should be available on the App Store within the next few days.

Drivers can locate links for the Blink App and become a Blink Member at www.BlinkNetwork.com.

‘As the largest owner, operator, and provider of EV charging infrastructure, we continue to work to eliminate the barriers that have existed among EV Charging networks and improve the overall charging experience for EV drivers,’ said Michael D. Farkas, founder and CEO of CarCharging.

‘In addition to offering new functionality for the Blink Network and its EV charging stations, we plan to expand the functionality of the Blink App to include paying and initiating charging sessions for all public Blink, GE, and SemaConnect EV charging stations. In addition, we also plan to continue our efforts with other EV charging hardware and network providers to integrate their systems with the Blink Network.’
