    J1772 Charging Lock - Prevent unauthorizzed disconnection at public charging stations

    CapturePro customers please read this data, below. I wanted to share some recent esoterica about the charging port locking modes of Model S, and describe a very rare but possible situation and how to work around it. The summary is: if your charge port ever fails to unlock, make sure that the...

    Charge Port Characteristics - rare but possible concerns

    I wanted to share some recent esoterica about the charging port locking modes of Model S, and describe a very rare but possible situation and how to work around it. The summary is: if your charge port ever fails to unlock, make sure that the shore power level is reduced below ~5-7A. In nearly...

    Houston, TX

    Quick comment on valet parking. Even though many hotels state that only valet parkers may drive valet cars, I've found on three occasions that if I asked for the bell station and talk to the bell captain, that they said they would allow me to park my own car. In all cases it was one in and one...

    Model S - Trunk Lighting

    I also looked at these options early on, and I have a simple engineering question: what about the concept of using more power on that controlled (switched) loop than it was designed for? I haven't measured the existing light but my best guess is that it pulls about 50-75mA at 12V (resistor...

    Vendor T Sportline 19x8.5" TST Wheels For Sale for the Tesla Model S

    These are gorgeous. My only concerns would be whether any issues with running gear on my warantee would be blamed on non-OEM wheels... this would be bad and more than make up for the cost savings on tires, etc. IMHO.

    pete8314's Key Fob Cover

    I'd like to point out that I stated the fact that products with manufacturers logos were a dangerous thing to mess with; and, I was booed from the stage. It's a sensitive subject for anyone who has been trying to work with the Tesla Marketing team (snicker) for over 12 months on licensing...

    J1772 Charging Lock - Prevent unauthorizzed disconnection at public charging stations

    Quick Update: things are working great for the CapturePro on all the latest software. This thread looks pretty unfinished considering no comments since late October 2013... but everything is working and CapturePro is available. david

    Accessing battery terminals for inverter attachment

    No, actually there are inverters that work as an inverting 'island', providing their own timing for the AC frequency, and do not require a existing grid connection. These are NOT grid-tied.

    New "feature" I found - you must exit from the driver's door or else...

    I'm taking this way OT... my apologies. Any other questions I'll take to another thread. It's a hard decision. I worry that if sold as a product, I'd take (heavy) liability for the safety of the car when in use - there might be some legalese I could use,... I don't know. I'd actually wanted...

    Security Question

    No. The adapter is passive connection routing only. And, it sticks out of the port as well.

    Security Question

    I designed something like this, but didn't get much interest from Tesla, or from a few 'key' owners I asked - 8 \ I also was concerned about the idea of 'public' situations with the owner nearby (family get together, car show, etc) but untrained people might be in the car so you'd like all...

    New "feature" I found - you must exit from the driver's door or else...

    Bump - I also was concerned about the idea of 'public' situations with the owner nearby (family get together, car show, etc) but untrained people might be in the car so you'd like all aspects of the car to operate (screen, air, stereo) to allow showing-off, but NOT allow the car to move. So, I...

    PING. Does anyone have more data on these 19" turbine wheels? Has anyone used them? Is there someplace to get them in USA? I am interested.

    Firmware 5.8

    As the manufacturer of a J1772 lock, you can imagine that I'm frustrated on this one as well. First (because I had a recall due to the previous lack of it): at least the 'port unlock' function still works manually. Next, because I've had a VERY REMOTE relationship with SW support team...

    J1772 Charging Lock - Prevent unauthorizzed disconnection at public charging stations

    Yes. It's actually fixed in v4.5 - just a bit more complicated. Ideally, installing CapturePro so the slot isn't fitted too tight will allow the charging handle 'disconnect button' to unlock the car -- that's the best and easiest way. If you ever applied it too tight, then you can do the...

    J1772 Charging Lock - Prevent unauthorizzed disconnection at public charging stations

    I am awaiting final verification from Tesla and it's going VERY slow. I get one answer per week... not their fault, but its really slowing down my final completed manual and instructions for unlocking. The great news is, that between the charging and Controls screen, you can unlock the port now...

    J1772 Charging Lock - Prevent unauthorizzed disconnection at public charging stations

    Yes. It's actually fixed now - if you ever got 'stuck' you can do the following to unlock your charge port: - go to charging screen, press 'stop charging' - go to controls screen, press 'charge port' ...the port will unlock, irrespective. In v5.6, there will be a second button that...

    Firmware 5.0

    Thanks to everyone helping me on this one. It's really appreciated. The reason I am reopening this question is that the changes in 5.0 have been promised to support more explicit unlocking - this will benefit users of CapturePro and allow me to restart sales, but it will also help anyone who...

    Firmware 5.0

    Thanks for the kind offer - I'm not meaning to inconvenience anyone, and I will have a look myself fairly soon. I just wondered if anyone with a 5.0 car had seen it yet,...

    Firmware 5.0

    Tesla has assured me that with 5.0, when charging is complete (with J1772 or otherwise), the Charging Screen should dispaly a 'stop charging' button. If pressed, a second 'unlock port' button should appear, and the 'stop charging' button will become 'restart charging'. In no case is the charging...

    Firmware 5.0

    Has any 5.0 owner seen any changes in the charging port unlocking buttons? They might only show during J1772 charging. Anyone in that category seen new button layout? I was told that a new software revision would include a new button for explicitly unlocking the charge port after ending...
