My favourite public charger is a PodPoint and it works just fine with the doors unlocked.... I’ve used a few of their chargers now and they’re all the same. My home charger (Ohme) does the same too.@kiltox
That is very good. In my case, I usually use pod point free chargers and there does not seem to be any way of initiating charging with the non-tethered fast 7kW chargers except by locking the doors to initiate the charge. After my BMS update my charging kept failing if I unlocked the car immediately after initiating the charge and the advise I was given by a MG tech when I raised this issue was as I stated earlier ie safety issue so wait 2 to 5mins and unlock. I now follow this advice and it has worked and has worked perfectly since. Not sure why our cars all seem to be behaving differently but I guess it may be due to the chargers rather than to MG.
