Hello all. My car just arrived with cables.

One is a 1P 230V, 10A 2.3kW - regular home and they also provided a 3P 400V, 16A 11kW. I thought the latter would plug into the red socket in the image below, but I was wrong. Does anyone know of an adapter I can order?

I'm searching, but not sure what I'm looking for.

Help appreciated.

Thanks!

Depending on the rating of each phase of the 3 phase is (I.e. if it’s 32A per phase) you could also get a cable that plugs in and gives you a 32a single phase outlet.

you could charge at 7kW with a standard single phase portable EVSE.

3 phase EVSE’s are pricy!

What car are you planning on charging from it?

That will be fine to charge a polestar and that’s ad fast as you will be able to charge it AC, it’s a bit pricey though.

I’ve done a quick conversion from Swedish Krona to GBP and the one you have specified there works out at £600.

I’ve done a quick search and this is basically the same thing for £400


I’m not sure if they ship to Sweden but you may want to shop around.

I'm guessing so. The box was there when I moved in.

Just asked an electrician friend.

And thanks!!
That box has rather a lot of connectors on it. Could we see where it’s sited and what connections go in/out of it?

Any box with that many outlets on it surely has a big incoming supply cable.

It looks like it was intended for commercial use is on a caravan site or a farm or something like that?

How big is the cable feeding it and where is it fed from?

What is the rating of the 3 phase breaker that supplies it?

They don’t ship out of uk but I recognise the brand and you should be able to get it via AliExpress direct from China or via an EU country.

Should work fine, but it is 16 amp and on single phase cars will charge at 3.6 kw.
