Gabzi, not sure what is the point in a 7kW EVSE... All our Leafs can only charge at 3.3kW anyway. Maybe when the new model comes out here, owners of those vehicles may be able to make use of it.
Your right the only car that can make full use of it will the bmw i3. but they are the same cost as a 3.7kW unit, so furture proofing is one reason. and there is nothing wrong with running something rated for 7kW at 3.3kW.
the odd thing is that when I tried a 16A 3.3kW wall box with the volt, it would only negotiate a 10A charge max hence I'm currently running a 32A 7kW wall box with the volt, which negotiates a 15A charge.
another interesting thing is that the card version of the 3.3kW wallbox negotiates a 15A charge. go figure.
will be interesting to see what happens with Marty's volt n Gabz's Aerovironment callbox.
one way of telling that the volt is charging at 15 amps is that the time to end charge cannot be changed when toggling between 6A and 10A on the touch screen.
Don't know anything about the BMW wallbox except it is J1772. the bmw website had the wrong UK information on it for ages. did bmw give you a price ?
have to get back you on shipping costs, and I’ve found electricians cost varies wildly, they basically need to run a new cable from your electrical distribution board where your meter and circuit breakers are to where you want the EVSE. cost more the longer the distance etc how hard it is to do etc.. really had to estimate.
if your looking for a larger amount of feedback you would have to look at USA websites where there are more of these installed. I have 1 unit installed in the central coast, NSW. but that's about it.
