    Installing vehicle charger

    If you can install in a detached garage, then you can use the house earthing system (PME). Wishful thinking ! Can you install it inside the garage and run charging cable through the wall or can you install it on the outside wall of the garage?

I always turn down 3 phase jobs as I don't feel I understand it fully, but I'd like to do this job. I believe...

    Installing a plastic CU for a vehicle charger

    I'm looking at installing a plastic distribution board to feed a 3 phase vehicle charger. I've never been clear on whether flats being present in a building automatically make the rest of that building count as domestic or not. My understanding of 421.1.201 is that it does. The install...

    Wallbox EV Charger and Power Meter

    Has anyone installed a Walbox EV Charger with a Power Meter to enable the Power Boost option? It's installed but there doesn't seem to be any way of confirming that the Wallbox is talking to the Power Meter. I spoke to Wallbox and they couldn't help.

    Mikita DC18RC Charger, 3.0Ah 18v Battery question?

    I am very confused by this charger. The yellow LED in on, Battery Conditioning. What does that mean? Battery is fully charged, I think after 30 minutes. The yellow LED is still on. Makita needs to provide better documentation. Their lead blower runs out of juice on high after about 15...

    7kW EV charger charging at 2.5kW?
