You can actually buy them from Home Depot. Check their online store.Where can I buy one that's not over priced? I called the dealer twice and no response. Also idk much about these chargers, but do u just plug it in to a 220 outlet similar to when I plug in my 110 into the outlet to charge my car?
@Lambo, there is a fair amount of discussion about chargers in this forum. I suggest looking through the threads to get a good overview of the choices.Where can I buy one that's not over priced?

For a 6.6 kW charger, you actually need a 40 A circuit. In the US the ratings are labeled for temporary/peak loads. Charging an EV is considered a continuous load, and you're only allowed to pull 80% of the labeled rating. (Europe has more sensible labeling.)The Blink charger only requires a 30 amp circuit, as it tops out at 6.6 kW which is 27.5A at 240V.
The Fisker-branded Blink was about $1500 from my dealer.Well now sell the Blink charger 220 volt with the Fisker Logo on if I'am correct it cost around $800.00 I have new one for the shop which I'am going to try and install tomorrow if you like any pictures or specs from the supplied tech sheet shoot me a PM.
But that's something we call "market economy"The "smart" ones like the Blink consist of a sub-$100 Linux box that runs a dinky web server and some other data-management toys, wrapped around a relay control system that you could make a tidy profit on at $25. These are wired up with connectors and heavy cabling that all together should sell for no more than $300-$500 to the end user.
