    Never had any issue like people disconnecting me on the east coast from public chargers. Maybe it's different in CA.

    I think it's a very clever idea, but you may have to use it judiciously. Around here, I'm starting to find EVSE "shared" between two parking spots. In one particular place I park there are signs asking people not to lock or alarm the charge cable and that the parking lot attendant (NOT other EV owners) may switch the cable to the car next to you after some period of time.

    I thought a Model S firmware change that came out sometime last year made the use of this device inadvisable. Or has the situation changed again?

    the J1772 can be pulled out by anyone at any time but the adapter part will stay locked to the car.

    Pick up my P85+ last week of June... just planning in advance... wasn't sure if it was an issue for those that already own a Tesla. Can't wait for the new ride... by the way I read in a few other posts that the firmware issue was resolved and the product is back on the market. Sounds like the you can't unplug the charger cord from the adapter... anyone have one that can confirm?

    have been a muscle car addict for some time... this will be the exact opposite of my 800 hp Ford GT and Viper. They are both very loud! I was really surprised at the power and torque of the MS P85+.
