I'm not sure if others are aware, this is why, I'm posting this. I'm very happy to hang the cap, as I hate dangling it free in the wind.

Previous model PS Soil EV had nice hinged gasketted covers for Type 1 and Chademo sockets.

Is this KIA cheapskating or is the CCS COMBO TYPE 2 so incredibly badly designed it can't have a fixed cover and relies on a dangly rubber cap.

This is Value Engineering at its worst.

You still have to dangle one if you're CCS charging though :confused:. It's definitely a cheap/clunky solution compared with the designs that some other manufacturers have come up with.

I know, but how often do you rapid charge? Also, slow charge will be a few hours, and a rapid ~45min max... By the way, I just found out yesterday that Ecotricity have an automatic cutoff at 45min. :mad::poop:
