Chargepoint Access from FOB

14

Description

Integrate third party charging system’s RFID chip into the Tesla key FOB.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

I can’t stand having those extra cards on my keychain. I’m sure Tesla prefers if you charge at a Superchargers, when available, but it would be handy for those other times.

Too early as the market is still new.

I expect that all systems will eventually talk to the cars through the charge connector or radio - maybe BT or WiFi- so join that industry standard as it emerges.

Only works if a generic RFID chip in the fob could be registered with many (any) of the several charging systems (and there will be more).

Interesting idea. Would just need an RFID tag inside the keyfob.
