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.

Yes, you can put a 14-50 on the supply line, but you must use a <40a setting on the unit when you do so.

How about you install the 14-50 receptacle and use the charge cable that is under the floor of the frunk? Save the CSP for when you are settled in your new home. This is what I have been doing and always get charged to 90% by the morning with a 9pm start time.
CSP when plugged into the 14-50 will get you 9.6kw, where reports from the rather anemic Ford mobile cord are coming in @ 6.6kw. If you have the CSP sitting there, plugging that into your 14-50 outlet not only gets you a third more charging power, but means you can leave the mobile cord where it belongs; in the truck for emergencies when away from home.
