Not sure if anyone else has been thinking about this. I live in the southeast where most EV charging sites have only one charger. If I need a charge and that space is occupied, what to do? How about a NEMA 14-50 extension cord 50 foot or so (purchased at a RV store) and a J1772 adapter such as the one sold by modular EV power on the web. Then you could park 2 or 3 spaces away (or block in the ICE) and charge away! I know that TESLA disapproves of extension cords but I don't see why this wouldn't work. Any thoughts? Picture below, hope it posts correctly.
