    Heh? How did you do that?

    Is it a genuine Mennekes connector or from another manufacturer?

    I had my connector stuck once, but that was because I lost my RFID tag and couldn't unlock the charging station.... Had to call the support desk :)

    We have seen that happen here in the UK... sometimes the cable is released by calling the vendor and requesting a Charging Station reset... sometimes you must wait for them to visit the site to release the cable :confused:

    yes i called them. of course their hotline was not "hot" at that moment, but i did find my way to the person in charge.
    it seems that this station should only lock your adapter when activated by the rfid chip. but till the end of year it is free and no chips so it should not lock at any time. however it did. they tryied to reset it remotely. no success. so my adapter is there and i m here untill the technician arrives at the station...
