    So, I am spending the week on the Gulf of Mexico. I drove around (in an ICE) checking out all the charging options. Nothing was being used, anywhere. But it brought a question to mind: if I ever used a charing station close to a body of salt water, should I be concerned about any effects of salt water on the contacts of the connector? Should a bring a Q-tip and alcohol to clean the connectors beforeI attach it to my car? I'm not suggesting that the units have been submerged, but there is clearly salt in the wind when you're within ~ 1 mile of the beach.

    Anyone have any thoughts, or experience?
