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.

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

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).
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.
