    Been thinking of creating some pre-printed cards for:

    1. Placard (think hotel "Do Not Disturb"-sized card) that I can hang on the J1772 charger as it's charging that tells a waiting EV owner how to contact me so I can let them know when I'm done.*
    2. Card (business-card sized) so I can leave on someone's car to either contact me when they are done or let them know I unplugged them because the charger said they were done.

    Anyone have any suggestions for other uses? I'm planning to do so in the next week or so and can create a link to the files when I'm done.

    *For those of you afraid to leave your own number, I figured out the best way to keep your privacy (or at least your number secret), is sign up for Google Voice or SendHub. I ended up signing up for SendHub for the number and Google for e-mail and Drive (to store all the Tesla related documents).

    There were some links at the bottom of this article:

    "Old timey" (still relevant) charging protocol page (includes links to protocol cards):

    A cool EV placard an energy company made:

    Example of a courtesy notice to leave when you get ICEd. Specific to california and not particularly polite but you can use it to make your own (DOC):

    ICEd notices from Blink. They go from polite to angry. Pick your mood:
