I used a public charging station with the J1772 adapter for the first time yesterday. It worked great, charging at 30A. When I came back I unplugged the cable and put it back in its cradle. Only when I was just about ready to drive away did I remember the adapter, which I had left connected to the J1772 plug. That would have been a $100 mistake, and I think it's an easy one to make, particularly early on, when we're not quite so familiar with what all these new things are supposed to look like. I now put a sticker with my phone number on the adapter, just in case next time I totally flake.
