I've watched 90% of your videos a few times each now (as well as some others) and I am thinking about taking the journey. I thought I saw something somewhere that said that there are 2 types of recharge ports. One that uses a kill key and one that doesn't. What's the difference between this one and the kill key one? Thanks for all of your videos. Good luck with the renovations.

The recharge ports with kill keys have 2 negative poles on them. Inserting a dielectric into the port breaks the connection to one of the negative poles internally. This allows for power to your electronics to be disconnected to keep them from draining the battery when they're not in use.
