The white hat hacker in me can't help but chime in here.SparkE wrote: and NOBODY is stealing that EVSE - the car is parked on top of it.
I would think anyone with a jack in their car (most people, but amazingly not most Spark EV drivers) could easily jack up the car and take off with the EVSE and 2x4.
It's been a while since I've seen a car on cinder blocks with all 4 wheels missing, but there is something to be said for locks.
At least the Spark EV's alarm should sound if the EVSE is unplugged. Every once in a while I forget to unlock the car before I unplug and am reminded of that feature.
Kind of makes me wonder if powering off the EVSE first (unplug from wall first) would defeat the alarm. Wouldn't be hard to test and answer my own question, but...
