worse - they don't actually check the transmitted VIN at all but rely on the car indicating that it is unauthorized to use superchargers.

Mods please change my name to "Tooter Skeleton" TIA.


i once got paid to do some "consultancy" on electric vehicles like 10+ years ago (specifically involving application of a specific drivetrain to them but i didn't really know what i was doing tbh) and one of the few things i can remember is that batteries are super sensitive to their charge and discharge cycle so i can actually legitimately see why they'd hide the "extra range" feature because it's really just using the 10% of the battery that never gets discharged in the normal work cycle because it trashes your overall battery life to do that. so i guess anyone that uses it probably automatically invalidates their battery warranty or whatever.

of course that assumes that battery doesn't just yolo itself out of existence first
