I don't use a hack adapter, I've never once charged from a Tesla EVSE. You've entirely missed my point...
For the few people using a hack adapter at a Tesla EVSE, there are many more Tesla owners charging far too long at public EVSEs. Those jerks are starting to tarnish the reputation of all Tesla owners, fair or not.
In other words, there are jerks in both camps and the jerks are starting to make everyone else jaded - it becomes a vicious cycle.
I'm not excusing the behavior, but I guarantee some of those people who bought the hack adapters were at least partly motivated by frustrations with Tesla owners and feel they are giving them a taste of their own medicine.
I don't practice or excuse poor charging etiquette, so you can put away your straw man and 'two wrongs make a right' arguments.
Dredging that up again, are you? See here: https://mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php? ... 40#p537719
, where I said:
People are buying these hack adapters because other charging options are unavailable, due to the jerks that are camping out at non Tesla EVSEs, and they see the hack adapter as a way of accessing more charging options.
There are only two fixes for this - more charging infrastructure and better etiquette from all EV owners.
With more big battery EVs on the road now, and more EVs in general, the lineups at public EVSEs have recently gotten much worse and often last all day long. Patience is in short supply in this world, so it's inevitable that people will look for a way to cheat the lineups.
However, you seem to think that the most plausible explanation why people would spend hundreds for a hack adapter is so they can steal electricity from Tesla. Anyone who is that spend thrift would most certainly do the payback period math and realize it's not worth it!
So, I'm not interested in an irrelevant ethical debate with you - I neither condone nor advocate that people should buy a hack adapter. You keep trying to make me feel guilty, like I'm somehow complicit:
That is your justification for using a hack adapter ? Really ?!
You are trying to say that two wrongs make a right

Get off your high horse!
If public EVSEs were as ubiquitous at gas stations, the only people who would buy hack adapters would be irrational Telsa haters, just looking to stick it to Tesla regardless of the cost.
