    Domestic Induction hob for preexisting 4mm T+E

    I have been told by a local spark that one can not run an induction hob on a 4mm T+E. From my understanding, most induction hobs are 7-8kW and "require" 6-10mm T+E but our housebuilder only put 4mm because they are cheap. Or maybe I am cheap for not coughing up £500 for a £150 induction hob...
