Hi all --
Just want to ask those who use Chargepoint charging network how exactly it works, as my MS purchase will be quite dependent on it.
I understand that you buy a free membership card from Chargepoint ($5), which then unlocks any free charging stations' Level 2 adapters. Otherwise, there are no membership fees or other charges, is that correct? I do not plan to use many $/hr Chargepoint stations, so the free access membership would be the one I would choose (as opposed to the $25 credit included card). Is this all correct by your experience?
One reason I ask is that I tried unlocking a Chargepoint station the other day just using my Amex that has RFID in it, and it only released the Level 1 plug door. So I'm guessing that they restrict Level 2 to full cardholders only.
