I wondered about sabotage as well, but from the report:
  • "A vehicle was disconnecting from the ChargeNet station when it "blew apart", a Fire and Emergency New Zealand (Fenz) spokesman said."
Unless someone set up something with a timer or it just needed a spark... it just seems unlikely to me.

Tesla’s seem to have error 74 authentication issues at UWA veefil dc.
Many Tesla owners have to un/plug at least 3 times.

According to Ant Day,
No error 74 issue nor wait to start charging after tagging with his Kona.

Perhaps this can be a clue to circontrol QPC trio Tesla dc issues ?

Ant has since updated that he had to Wait 15 secs for authentication.

One hunch is the pilot signal of the ccs2 connector is faulty?

This is what happened at circontrol Harvey and margaret river dces
The ccs2 Phoenix contact connectors dont seem That robust.

Perhaps this topic could be moved from “the lounge” to “charging infrastructure” group ?

I saw someone ask about issues with these chargers in other parts of the world, and yes they exist.
One of these chargers was just installed in my town last week in Ontario Canada. I happened to be in the parking lot when I saw the technician pull out the "now open" sign from his truck, so I figured I'd give it a try. After about a minute, I got Error 139.
Luckily the tech didn't drive off yet, and was able to fix it up pretty quick. Error 139 is a fault when one of the cooling fans is unable to kick in, and apparently the plug for this fan is in an inconvenient spot, and needs to be disconnected for quite a lot of internal service, and some tech's forget to plug it back in when they're done.
He popped off the back cover, and had it reconnected in a few seconds.
I would have thought that a system like this would run through a self-test when powering on to check all these things, but maybe they were monkeying with it after it was powered on.

The next day I came back to the same charger, and again after a minute got Error 64
No tech around this time, so I submitted a report through the charge network's app. Don't know what this one is, but I suspect it's also related to the cooling system since it happened at nearly the same amount of charge time.
2 days later I tried the same charger and had no problems over a 30 minute charge.

According to Tritium blurb 'In addition to four fast-charging units in Brisbane (at Fortitude Valley, Coorparoo and St Lucia) eight further fast chargers will link popular destinations in the region (Noosa, Sunshine Coast, Caboolture/Burpengary, Ipswich, Toowoomba, Cararra/Southport, Coolangata/Tweed, Byron).'

To date I have seen nothing happen. Perhaps they were referring to the defunct / removed Brisbane BMW DCFC, the one at UQ and the state government ones at Toowoomba, Helenvale and Bilinga .. dunno about Coorparoo, Ipswich, Noosa, Caboolture and Carrara though.

There is plenty happening at the moment. The Queensland Electric Super Highway stage two accounts for a few (e.g. Ipswich), Evie is building out their network (e.g. Buderim, Noosaville). Check out plugshare.

Certainly a few more scattered around since the last time I checked although too many Tesla ones for my liking. I've always found them more trouble than they are worth. Its a pity that the interests of non-Teslarti aren't promoted more extensively. Thankfully it looks like the next round of government ones are finally getting rolled out with common or garden variety connections. Also encouraging that some country pubs have realized even a 10 amp socket is likely to attract business. I believe there is plenty of scope for more of those.

Yeah Mate, That's what we need. Just lots of 3 phase country pubs.

Three phase is pushing it ... I don't recall even one country pub in my travels that was so equipped. Showgrounds are a different situation though
