  1. This is good news. I assume they’re going to be focusing on the most unreliable locations, which tend to be the ABB units.

    Hopefully this will help them get a handle on network unreliability, alhough I don’t how r/electricvehicles is going to sustain itself without constant EA hate posts. Maybe they’ll need to pivot to Blink.

  2. Let’s hope that means the CHAdeMO chargers are getting swapped or at least switched to a dual model with CCS.

    While we’re at it, will they let some of us lowly PHEV users get to use it as a level 2 charger?

  3. It would be better if EA adds new next -gen charges instead of replacements – I have none in 20 miles around my home. Home chargers is still the most reliable way to recharge my car. How much time do I spend charging at EA is not si important for me.

    Thanks,
    Anton

  4. Why not make EV chargers a franchise-model kind of thing where individuals can buy a charger as part of a current/future lot? The individual fronting costs, like in franchise model, could lead to more chargers everywhere, plus EA gets its franchise fees, so it’s covered on its end.

  5. Hopefully these new chargers have Point of sale systems that are more tolerant to extreme temperatures. In my experience, most of the failed stations I’ve encountered are due to the POS system being down, not the actual charging equipment. In fact, at one station which the screen had failed, I was able to still use that cabinet by starting the charge from the app. Lucky day.

  6. >In the coming weeks through the end of the year, you can expect to see many enhancements at stations starting with the replacement of 300+ early technology chargers with our Next-Generation Charger.

    >We will continue to share updates on this charger replacement campaign in the coming weeks. Thank you for being a member of our EV community ⚡️

  7. Hopefully they can use the data they have and really prioritize the ones that are broken and get high use. Still I think charging experience for non-teslas is really poor. Just last week while I was Supercharging I saw an older women fumbling with using an adjacent Charge Point charger. Despite trying to help we could not get it authorized to start charging. There needs to be a lot more focus on reliable plug and go solutions. I’d like to get a non Tesla EV in the future but I am holding off due to the charging mess.

  8. Just give me the Tesla CCS adapter already. Yes, superchargers are already crowded, yes the Tesla fanbois are going to be pissed about having to share ‘their’ chargers with the unwashed masses, and yes it’s going to be more expensive than other vendors but their stations just flat work and that’s what I really need anyway,

  9. Sucks that they have to expend all that energy and equipment to replace what should’ve been perfectly functional chargers with new ones, instead of putting those new ones in a different location to expand their network.

  10. I wonder if the new units include the RFID reader. The ones with the reader install start so much faster.

    It would be awesome if EA could take a leaf from EVGo and figure out how to auto start a charge for EA members.
