Not me. I’m usually a first adopter but Ive bricked an Apple TV and an iPhone in my past life so I’ve sworn off work around, hacks and unauthorized changes to software. Don’t even use torrent for movies anymore! You get old you use lessons learned. Get more cautious. Getting old sucks.

If going on a trip where I’ll recharge on the road I’ll top off at home first on my level 2 before leaving. We can check our cost per hour and its always about $1.25 for the extra juice...
