I'm at work and my car is plugged in across the street. I got a text message from the ChargePoint station saying "Your car has stopped charging because it was unplugged". I sprinted outside. There was a worker there who was repairing the other half the charger (port 2. I was on port 1. They share a base.) I said, "Hello." and he said, "Oh, is this your car? I unplugged it so I can fix the other port. I'll plug it back in when I'm done."
I was shocked. "It just let you unplug it? I thought it locked to my car?" He said, "Nope, it came right out."
What the hell? So anyone can come along and unplug anyone's car? The Tesla adapter was still plugged into my car, and I didn't test whether that would come out, but I suspect it would. This was VERY unnerving!!
