Really? You mean these?
Is there a way to detect the "wrong" cable kind? Do they have the incorrect gauge of wire inside or something? I didn't notice any heat in the connector when I pulled it. This one is very close to my dad's house (about 40 miles away), so when I visit, I plan to plug-in here for an hour while I eat at my favorite restaurant there. This is one of the rare multiple-EVSE installations in Southern California which are totally free of charge. This shopping area also has free WiFi.
I drove around for quite a while in the wrong parking structure, wasting a bunch of miles, searching the multi-level structure, until I finally found the chargers at a different structure. But it sure was a great feeling to be able to get a high-voltage charge for free, at a place I wanted to be at anyway.
This is probably the only EVSE station I'll ever be using since it conveniently solves a particular range issue when visiting my dad. Work is closer (30 miles), and I also have 120V available at work, and obviously, I'm able to stay plugged-in a lot longer at work without any inconvenience.
