Charge Station Pro plugged in vs Direct Wire?

Anyone know if there's ability to plug in the charge station pro vs direct wiring?
Spec sheet says it can be amped down and wondering if you could install a dryer style plug to use with an existing nema 14-50 outlet.

Before the "why would you want to do this?!" questions come, here's my reasoning.

Currently I am in a home I own but is something I am going to be converting to a rental soon. I don't want to hardwire the CSP and then remove but fine having the 14-50 plug.

Personally, I'd hardwire it on a 50 Amp circuit, making sure to downrate the FCSP to 40A. When you leave, install an industrial quality14-50R in its place.

Reason being that sometimes you can do things that work. And, sometimes doing it the right way is just about as easy. If you are sure the FCSP terminals, inlet, and strain relief are torqued properly and FCSP is rated to accept whatever 14-50P cordset you come up with, ignore this advice. ;)
