6/14/07: Cable has been pulled out of Avcon station. Avcon and SPI both down. SPI apparently lacking power.

--Alec Proudfoot
7/11/02: Tom Dowling visited site 5/02, and found LPI and AVC operational. Some ICEing problems. Call BART security.
There are many old conductive receptacles near the LPI and AVC spots. These are in disrepair, and not signed for EV parking only, leading to motorist confusion and a fairly severe ICEing problem during prime commute hours.
4/29/02: BART Ashby station is reported by BART to be out of service, and no upgrading of units is planned as it is "not a budgeted priority" with BART. Comments should be directed to the BART Board of Directors... - RCC Group
02/24/02: Michael Schwabe reports that the Avcon charging station is now operational. Inductive also tested operational. This is known as the Ashby BART station. Both inductive and conductive chargers are locked. Bring your universal key.
01/20/02: Michael Schwabe states that the Avcon charging station was down on 6/8/01. Jerry Hudgins reports still down on 1/13/02.

There are BART parking lots on both sides of Adeline Street. The MagneCharger is in the eastern lot. To reach it, turn east onto Woolsey Street from Adeline, then left into the BART lot. Wind left around the perimeter of the lot until you reach the southwest corner, right next to Adeline.
