My commuti-car doesn't turn on if it's got power from a cord going to it, a rely switches and charging starts, this is how it came from the factory.

I suspect it will take less then a year before someone starts to make a retrofit charger that works with these charging stations and a few months later someone will make an affordable one, 80 amps at 240 volts would charge my car in half an hour.
