Well, it would allow you to charge at a hotel (or restaurant) that has Tesla destination chargers when the J1772 is occupied (or none are available). I know that at the Majestic Yosemite Hotel (in Yosemite National park) there's a 15A j1772 and an 80A
Tesla level-2 charger. I have often seen multiple Tesla destination chargers when I am out and about, with only one J1772 (or none at all). The Los Gatos Hotel only has a Tesla unit, and the Courtyard Marriott in Palo Alto has EIGHT Tesla units. The doubletree in Fremont has 4 Tesla/0 J1772; the Fremont Marriott has 3T/1 J1772 - the Best Western in Danville has 4T/1J !! . It''s sort of like carrying a NEMA 14-50 or 14-30 pigtail for your portable EVSE, so you can charge at campgrounds : backup. It can be very useful if you travel 200-400 miles fairly frequently, especially if you stay in hotels; you'll wake up with a full charge the next morning. Looking specifically at NM, there are quite a few spots that have more Tesla charging units than J1772 - or no J1772 at all. Adding in Tesla home HPWC units, being able to use a Tesla plug significantly increases the number of charging locations.

No. never. Or only if Tesla decides to open it up.
