Wonder what protection there is to prevent someone from stealing your cable and using it on their own car so you get hit with the bill and not them.

Cable could easily be linked to the car - different car, no power. Also, the stolen cable could send a message with details of the car it is trying to charge so that an investigation on why the cable changed hands could begin.

You keep using "could" but I doubt it "does."

The car does not send any data back through the electrical network and that's why they need that special box to begin with. The account is linked to the cable with the attached box -- not the car.

In the UK, stealing cables has been banned by the Queen. I don't know what you'll do in the USA

He said the box is there but you never press any of the buttons. No password is required.

Maybe they don't think it's necessary at this point, since there is too few of them, or they omitted it from the video.

Password, some sort of ID or fingerprint would be logical measure for such device.

Maybe it never occurred to the designers that it might get stolen. Why don't you email them.

While you're about it, you could check if it's waterproof.
