What's all this talk about covering the EVSE? I leave my Prius EVSE out in the rain all year long. Even pulled the O-ring out of the plug end since it always messes with seating the connector.

These things are made to be in the elements.

I guess the duosida one isn't really made to be left out.
I have left the J1772 on the car in the rain and had no problems as long as the brick was out of the rain.

Plus I would recommend having access to a 2nd EVSE incase your primary one stops working.

Tesla Issues Software Update To Extend Some Cars' Batteries Due To Hurricane Florence

https://hardware.slashdot.org/story/...icane-florence


Quote:
Tesla is temporarily enabling free Supercharging and extending the range of some cars' batteries for those in Hurricane Florence's path. "Tesla used to offer the option to buy a Model S or Model X with a 75 kWh battery pack software-locked at a capacity of 60 kWh," reports Electrek. "The option would result in a less expensive vehicle with a shorter range and the option to pay to remotely enable the longer range at a later stage."

Some owners on the Carolina Coast report that they've received a notification explaining the temporary new benefits: "We are temporarily enabling your car to access additional battery capacity, as well as free Supercharging, in preparation for Hurricane Florence. We hope this gives you the peace of mind to get to a safe location, and will notify you before returning your car to its original configuration in mid-October. Badging on your display may adjust during this period. Safe travels." From the report:

Quote:
This is a very cool move from Tesla. When they did it last year, it was misrepresented by many who focused on the software-limited battery packs -- saying that it means Tesla was screwing people over by limiting the battery capacity. The option was more about offering a less expensive battery pack without having to produce a different size pack, which helps streamline production. It gave buyers a less expensive option and they could always unlock the capacity later for a price. For those who decided to not unlock it, it now gives an opportunity for Tesla to let them have more range at a critical time by using Tesla's over-the-air software update capability.
