Chargepoint chargers are non-tesla but they still work this way with the button on the wand even though you are using a 1772 adapter. I am not sure of other manufacturer's versions of the 1772 wand but the chargepoint wand if you press the button to remove the chargepoint wand the car will act on that.
I guess it's some kind of safety measure: only unlock if there no power flowing? And the button just disengage the power flow...


BTW: We are all a bunch of off-topic sinners, this no longer "crazy questions" but "walk-up unlock charge issues" thread :D

Yank back to thread topic:
The other question I get frequently is "How do you like it?" and I reply by asking them if they want to drive it and see for themselves. After that, game over, their minds are blown. I did that tonight with a neighbor who owns a big pickup. His comment? "I now see what all the fuss is about, this is just amazing"

The latest and great question seems to be how I feel about the safety for myself and my family since "the brakes are bad".

Frankly I have felt nothing but great braking power when needed and certainly I have much more confidence than I had in my 2015 Hyundai Sonata which I never thought I could stop in a time of need...

Oddly, we’ve had several people take exception when, while talking about the car, we accidentally say, “Gas pedal.”

“I thought you said there was no gas tank!”
“So it’s a plug-in hybrid?”

We’re learning quickly to just say accelerator.
I say gas pedal all the time. I figure it is something that will stick around long after gas is not used to fuel vehicles. Like a lot of the sayings in the English language.
