I would love to see a big light on the top of the charge head that goes green while charging, amber when the charger ramps down to the end of charge and red when done. A (not so) subtle hint of the state of the charging spot - in use through to hogging. It would make parking attendants able to credit say a 1 hour limit after charge end before getting a ticket. I know charge point and sometime my car both let me know when it’s finished charging. I am sure others do to.
