    Cancel all 3rd party charge port openers! Tesla added a new feature to latest firmware. Pressing the trunk button for 2 seconds on the fob key opens the charge port!

    Original thread in Tesla UK forums and here is a summary

    Tried it today on a mid Dec HK delivery car and it works!

    Good thing it wasn't too expensive.

    I have two of these now, we have one attached to each of our key fobs. I was going to give one to a friends overseas who gets a 85D in a few months (LHD). Maybe less relevant now, but yesterday I chatted up yet another Tesla owner I met (IFC), and while he was about to leave, I showed to his amazement how I could open HIS charge port. His kids tried it too, and the entertainment value was great :)
