Look on the bright side you could be paying fuel duty! 😉

I’d say your glass is definitely half full! 😃

Does not ship to GB, presumably thanks to HMRC now unreasonably expecting all overseas sellers to register for UK VAT. (I'm seeing a lot of that these days)
Yes I notice a lot of Chinese stuff is a lot more expensive this month, including many items on Amazon. The EV charger I ordered via Aliexpress was £255 when I bought it 2weeks ago and a day later it was £486 ( a lot more than the vat but probably due to fees from the intermediary who is processing and collecting the vat on HMRC's behalf.) I expect a vat invoice from the courier when it arrives in the UK.
From July, the EU is charging vat on all imports, rather than just those over 35E - covid clawbacks?
