After owning my volt for nearly 4 years, although the self illuminated port seems cool, I can't see paying more and spending time to install it as being worth it. If it happened to come on the car I bought, so be it.
I found that I enjoyed the installation project, and I find it convenient and I like having the light there.
Often, I cover the dash light (blinking sets off the dash cam), or visiting some places, solves the neighbors helpful calls to see if something is wrong, because of the flashing light. The side view is perfect at that place, where I can see it from the window, but not the other folks.
I can also plug in dark, but with the light, it is easier. I was glad I did the upgrade.
