Hours long waits at Tesla’s proprietary chargers will help the other manufacturers.

Tesla sells an adapter for the EV standard J1772 plug.

The Tesla Superchargers are proprietor. This is only in North America. In Europe all cars have to have J1772 ability. Not sure why that's not the law here.

Propriatory charging systems are not good for making EV's more mainstream.

Elon has come around on this.

Elon Musk has claimed that its Tesla EV chargers would soon be available for use of other brands and cars, all over the world, as pioneers of its unique charging connectors. Before this, the CEO said that Tesla was the only EV company that focused on "long-range electric cars." The company had charger stations that would have it as an equivalent to refueling.

In the past years, California was the center of most Tesla Supercharger stations as it is the birthplace of the company and where most of its sales are. However, that would soon change as Tesla plans to build new factories and distibute vehicles and power all over the world.

The J1772 and CCS connectors need to be industry standards across the board.

Heck even an adapter wouldn't be prudent unless I would regularly have access to a Tesla Supercharger.
