I got the Model 3 KeyFob last year and I have only recently discoverers that if you long press (2 Seconds) the boot open button this will unlock the charger port allowing you to pull the cable out without first having to go into the car or app.

It’s not very well documented (The Model3 manual says that it will just open the charge port flap)
So i thought I would mention it for this that have the key and possibly didn’t know

If anyone reads this thread who has both fob and refresh model 3, could they confirm if a 2nd double press on the fob's trunk button closes it?
