Blink drops five new EV chargers including an LTE-connected, 55-inch display solution called Vision

This morning at CES in Las Vegas, Global EV charging network Blink announced five new charging products for businesses and consumers. Blink’s latest charging tech includes everything from a residential charging cable to DC fast chargers designed to offer EV charging across global markets. Have a look.

Blink Charging Co. ($BLNK) is an EV charging network operating over 30,000 ports across the world. In addition to charging hardware and services, Blink’s network uses proprietary, cloud-based software that operates and tracks connected charging stations and gathers the charging data each provides.

In addition to North America, Blink has a global presence in over 25 countries around the world, including South American territories such as Colombia, Chile, and Aruba. In Europe, Blink has an established charging presence in Greece and Belgium, and recently acquired EB Charging as its first entry into the UK.

At last year’s CES event, Blink introduced a slew of new charging products, including its HQ 200 home charger, MQ 200 fleet charger, and plans for a “Vision” version of its IQ 200 charger, complete with two 30″ LCD screens.

During this year’s event, Blink is back debuting another group of new charging products, including a new standalone Vision charger.
