did you just plug it in or was there something else involved?

If it just worked then I'd expect it to only be short term as once word gets out Tesla will shut it down pronto.
Driving "Hirundo Rustica" since 15th Mar 2019. Lovely Jubbly :D :D

Rumor has it that It's a software bug. For people who understand German:

Indeed just plug and play. I was close to a site with V3 when I heard the rumour so I just tried. unfortunately I arrived with 93%...but it topped up nicely to 100%. was lucky i could approach the V3 sideways from the other side of the official Tesla parking. The cable couldn't reach when parked nose forward. Very short cable.....Tesla owner was very friendly explaining to me that probably I was an EV newcomer and referred me to an alternative charger elsewh. I told him I was charging nicely.....amazed face. He asked if he could film it :D . Surely it will be shortlived loophole. Still nice for as long as it lasts. Maybe Elon provides us with a fair priced payment system to use them at some point?

Thanks for the confirmation.
Too bad the loophole is already closed., had already planned to try the Tesla charger in Den Haag tomorrow morning on my way home to work.

BTW:
I see your car was at 99% with 325 km estimated range. I have not seen such a low range since last december. You must my really pushing it :)
