Bob vs. J1772
Apparently this was the first time I visited the Thompsons in my Chevrolet Volt. I asked to plug in and for novelty's sake, Bob picked up the (SAE J1772) connector to plug it in. Di found it novel enough to whip out the camera, which made it a bigger production than it had any business being.
Bob was successful, which spared him from teasing based on his mechanical engineering background.
And the ~2.5kWh of power poured into the car during my visit was good for an additional ~8 miles of all-electric range that day.
