I was low on charge when I arrived at the Holiday Inn Vanderbilt to attend an AITP meeting. I usually charge my car there during the monthly meetings. This month both Blink charging spaces were blocked by a construction dumpster. Fortunately I had recently purchased a JLong branded extension cord which I carried in the trunk.
I parked as close as I could (about 25 feet away). The Blink provided charging cable only reached half way, and with the JLong extension cord I had just enough to make the connection!!
I see on plugshare that a Ford Fusion Energi driver had been unable to charge the previous week. Had that driver had a JLong cable, he/she would have been successful as I was.
As an EV driver you have to be like a Boy Scout. Be Prepared!
